This paper presents a novel digital self-interference canceller for inband full-duplex radio transceivers. The proposed digital canceller utilizes a Volterra series with sparse memory to model the residual SI signal, and it can thereby accurately reconstruct the self-interference even under a heavily nonlinear transmitter power amplifier. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time such a sparse-memory Volterra series has been used to model the self-interference within an inband full-duplex device. The performance of the Volterra-based canceller is evaluated with real-life measurements that incorporate also an active analog canceller. The results show that the novel digital canceller suppresses the SI by 34 dB in the digital domain, outperforming the state- of-the-art memory polynomial-based solution by a margin of 5 dB. The total amount of cancellation is nearly 110 dB with a transmit power of +30 dBm, even though a shared transmit/receive antenna is used. To the best of our knowledge, this is the highest reported cancellation performance for a shared-antenna full-duplex device with such a high transmit power level.
