In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture combining analog and digital beamforming is proposed to reduce the number of radio frequency (RF) chains. It provides a good compromise between the higher degree of freedom of digital beamforming and hardware cost and complexity. In this hybrid system, two bit RF phase shifters are used as analog beamformers due to the fact that this enables the conversion of the combinatorial optimization problem to a continuous programming formulation. The overall optimization problem for the joint design of digital and analog beamforming weights is formulated as a quadratic-cost problem which can be solved iteratively by exact penalty and semidefinite programming. Simulation results show that the proposed method designs hybrid beamformer effectively and it performs better than antenna selection for the given multicasting problem.

In this paper, a hybrid system consisting of analog and digital beamformers is proposed to reduce the hardware complexity of full digital beamforming. In analog beamforming part, specially chosen two-bit radio frequency (RF) phase shifters are used. Two-bit structure enables the conversion of the discrete optimization problem to a continuous programming form which gives faster and more efficient solution. The optimization problem is formulated as a quadratic-cost problem and is solved iteratively by exact p...
Antenna Selection and Hybrid Beamforming for Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer in Multi-Group Multicasting Systems
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-10-01)
In this paper, low-cost alternatives to full digital beamforming, namely, antenna selection and hybrid beamforming, are proposed for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer in a multi-group multicasting scenario. The joint problem can be outlined as the design of beamformer weight vectors and power splitting ratios in order to satisfy both signal-to-interference-plus-noise - ratio and harvested power constraints at each user with minimum transmission power. We first develop an efficient algorit...
A General framework on adaptive hybrid beamformingand channel acquisition for wideband mm-wave massive MIMO systems
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzzaffer.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture together with a novel spatio-temporal receiver processing is proposed for single-carrier (SC) mm-wave wideband massive MIMO channels in time-domain duplex (TDD) mode. The design of two-stage beamformer is realized by using a virtual sectorization via second-order channel statistics based user grouping. The novel feature of the proposed architecture is that the effect of both inter-group-interference (due to non-orthogonality of virtual angular sec...

Cetin, Ramazan; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Nepa, Paolo; Manara, Giuliano (2009-09-18)
In this paper, an efficient method for the analysis of electromagnetic scattering/radiation from the obstacles nearby electrically large array antennas, with nonuniform excitation, is proposed. The approach is based on the combination of a ray field representation of electrically large arrays and a DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) based representation of array current distribution. Proposed method is applied to a 2D problem: Radiation of a linear array of 2N+1 infinitely long current elements with tapered c...
Broadband analogue predistortion using a distortion generator based on two-stage RF mixer topology
Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2018-01-01)
An analogue predistorter using a distortion generator based on a two-stage radio frequency mixer topology is presented. The proposed distortion generator achieves fundamental signal cancellation without using a signal cancellation loop or a resonant circuit, thus it generates an error signal that predominantly consists of unwanted intermodulation distortion (IMD). Measurements are performed using multi-tones, WLAN- and Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA)-modulated signals. Distortion generator provides high l...
