A Nonlinear Detector for Uplink SC-FDE mm-Wave Hybrid Massive MIMO under Hardware Impairments

In this paper, we propose a detector structure for fully connected hybrid massive MIMO systems with transceiver impairments at user equipments. In literature, memoryless compensation of nonlinear effects at the receiver side is recently proposed for systems employing frequency domain equalization. However, in these studies, the system model is restricted to be symbol sampled, where pulse shaping and fractional delays in channel impulse response (CIR) are not taken into consideration. However, memory effects of nonlinear distortion become more apparent when the system is considered in the upsampled signal domain. In this study, we propose a receiver architecture, where the received signal of each user is nonlinearly modified by the post-distortion unit with memory to recover the transmitted symbols. In addition, based on the proposed receiver structure, a novel detection criterion is introduced in order to compensate the distortion amplification due to fractional delays in the CIR. Lastly, performance improvement brought by the proposed detector is verified by numerical simulations.

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...
An Adaptive Hybrid Beamforming Scheme for Time-Varying Wideband Massive MIMO Channels
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2020-06-01)
© 2020 IEEE.In this paper, adaptive hybrid beamforming methods are proposed for millimeter-wave range massive MIMO systems considering single carrier wideband transmission in uplink data mode. A statistical analog beamformer is adaptively constructed in slow-time, while the channel is time-varying and erroneously estimated. Proposed recursive filtering approach is shown to bring a remarkable robustness against estimation errors. Then, analytical modifications are applied on an analog beamformer design metho...

This study investigates interference and beam squint aware analog beamformer design for massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems for spatial wideband beam division multiple access (BDMA) channels. Single carrier frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE) is employed in uplink frequency selective channels. We first design interference and beam squint aware (BSA) narrowband generalized eigenbeamformer (BSA NB GEB) based on a phase shifter (PS) network using slowly varying long-term channel statistics...
A current mirroring integration based readout circuit for high performance infrared FPA applications
Külah, Haluk; Akın, Tayfun (2003-04-01)
This paper reports a current mirroring integration (CMI) CMOS readout circuit for high-resolution infrared focal plane array (FPA) applications. The circuit uses a feedback structure with current mirrors to provide stable bias voltage across the photodetector diode, while mirroring the diode current to an integration capacitor. The integration capacitor can be placed outside of the unit pixel, reducing the pixel area and allowing to integrate the current on larger capacitance for larger charge storage capac...
A New Temperature-Tolerant RF MEMS Switch Structure Design and Fabrication for Ka-Band Applications
Demirel, Kaan; Yazgan, Erdem; Demir, Şimşek; Akın, Tayfun (2016-02-01)
In this paper, the design and fabrication of a new radio frequency (RF) microelectromechanical system (MEMS) switch structure is presented. This RF MEMS switch is developed to get the minimum permanent deformation on the microbridge after 200 degrees C thermal treatment. The residual stress-based buckling on the MEMS bridge is simulated for 5-40-MPa/mu m stress gradient (Delta sigma) with 5-MPa/mu m steps. The temperature-dependent extension and deformation on the MEMS bridge are modeled up to 270 degrees C...
