Direct-conversion radio receivers can offer highly integrated low-cost hardware solutions for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio systems. However, these receivers are susceptible to radio frequency (RF) impairments, such as in-phase and quadrature-phase imbalance, low-noise amplifier nonlinearities and phase noise, which limit the spectrum sensing(More)
We study the outage performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing dual-hop opportunistic amplifyand-forward relaying in the presence of I/Q imbalance (IQI) in all nodes. We derive a closed-form expression for the end-to-end outage probability for the general case where each node suffers from a different IQI level and assuming that the distance(More)
In this paper, we present a novel low-complexity scheme, which improves the performance of single-antenna multicarrier communication systems, suffering from in-phase and quadrature (I/Q)-imbalance (IQI) at the receiver. We refer to the proposed scheme as I/Q-imbalance self-interference coordination (IQSC). IQSC does not only mitigate the detrimental effects(More)
Direct-conversion radio (DCR) receivers can offer highly integrated low-cost hardware solutions for spectrum sensing in cognitive radio systems. However, DCR receivers are susceptible to radio frequency (RF) impairments, such as in-phase and quadrature-phase imbalance, low-noise amplifier nonlinearities and phase noise, which limit the spectrum sensing(More)
We study the outage performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing dual-hop opportunistic amplifyand-forward relaying in the presence of I/Q imbalance in all of the nodes’ transceivers. We derive a closed-form expression for the end-to-end outage probability for the general case, where each node suffers from a different I/Q imbalance level and(More)
Radio frequency (RF) front-ends constitute a fundamental part of both conventional and emerging wireless communication systems. However, in spite of their importance they are often assumed ideal, although they are practically subject to certain detrimental impairments, such as amplifier nonlinearities, phase noise and in phase and quadrature (I/Q) imbalance(More)
Direct-conversion radio transceivers can offer reprogrammable and low-cost hardware solutions for full-duplex (FD) cognitive radio (CR) devices. However, they are susceptible to radio frequency (RF) impairments, such as in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) imbalance (IQI), which can significantly constrain the spectrum sensing capabilities.
