A Reduced Complexity Ungerboeck Receiver for Quantized Wideband Massive SC-MIMO

Employing low resolution analog-to-digital converters in massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) has many advantages in terms of total power consumption, cost and feasibility. However, such advantages come together with significant challenges in channel estimation and data detection due to the severe quantization noise present. In this study, we first derive linear minimum mean-square-error channel estimator for cyclic-prefix (CP) free single carrier MIMO (SC-MIMO) under frequency-selective channel. Then, we propose a novel iterative receiver for quantized CP-free uplink wideband SC-MIMO for uncorrelated or correlated Rayleigh and Rician fading channels. This detector utilizes an efficient message passing algorithm based on Bussgang decomposition, reduced state sequence estimation and Ungerboeck factorization. Therefore, it achieves remarkable complexity reduction and exhibits significant performance advantages compared to the existing quantized SC-MIMO receivers from the literature.

Novel metal assisted etching technique for enhanced light management in black crystalline SI solar cells /
Es, Fırat; Turan, Raşit; Department of Chemistry (2015)
Photovoltaic (PV) technology needs higher performance - lower cost materials and structures in order to catch the grid parity and become an everyday use power source. The most commonly used material in PV, crystalline silicon, suffers from low absorption due to its indirect band gap nature. In order to overcome this problem, several light trapping structures have been used that increase the path length of photons inside the absorbing body of the device. However, conventional light trapping schemes cannot be...
A Reduced complexity hybrid precoding architecture and user grouping algorithms for downlink wideband massive MIMO channels
Kilcioğlu, Emre; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, an efficient hybrid precoding architecture is proposed for single-carrier (SC) downlink wideband spatially correlated massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. The design of two-stage beamformers 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 sectors) and the inter-symbol-interferen...
A multiscale analytical correction technique for two-dimensional thermal models of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs
Azarifar, Mohammad; Donmezer, Nazli (2017-07-01)
Two-dimensional approaches are widely used in the numerical thermal models of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to reduce the high computational cost of the three-dimensional approaches. The aforementioned simplified models predict inaccurate device temperatures with significant overestimation of the thermal resistance. In order to take advantage of the computational efficiency of the two-dimensional models, a correction procedure is necessary for the accurate representation of the actual...
A Survey and Extension of High Efficiency Grid Connected Transformerless Solar Inverters with Focus on Leakage Current Characteristics
Özkan, Ziya; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2012-09-20)
In the utility grid interconnection of photovoltaic (PV) energy sources, inverters determine the overall system performance, which result in the demand to route the grid connected transformerless PV inverters (GCTIs) for residential and commercial applications, especially due to their high efficiency, light weight, and low cost benefits. In spite of these benefits of GCTIs, leakage currents due to distributed PV module parasitic capacitances are a major issue in the interconnection, as they are undesired be...

Junseok, Chae; Najefi, Khalil; Külah, Haluk (2003-06-12)
A monolithic three-axis silicon capacitive accelerometer utilizing a combined surface and bulk micromachining technology is demonstrated with micro-g resolution. The accelerometer consists of three individual single-axis accelerometers. All three devices have full-wafer thick silicon proof-mass, large area polysilicon sense/drive electrodes, and small sensing gap (<1.5 /spl mu/m) formed by a sacrificial oxide layer. The fabricated accelerometer system is 7/spl times/9 mm/sup 2/ in size, has >5pF/g measured ...
