We address the joint optimization of transmitter and receivers for a multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channel (BC) system under the assumption of perfect channel state information (CSI) at both transmitter and receivers. Tomlinson Harashima precoding (THP) is employed for interuser interference presubtraction and the mean square(More)
We study the performance of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) channels with coarsely quantized outputs in the low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime, where the channel is perfectly known at the receiver. This analysis is of interest in the context of ultra-wideband (UWB) communications from two aspects. First the available power is spread over such a large(More)
This paper considers channel estimation and system performance for the uplink of a single-cell massive multiple-input multiple-output system. Each receiver antenna of the base station is assumed to be equipped with a pair of one-bit analog-to-digital converters to quantize the real and imaginary part of the received signal. We first propose an approach for(More)
We consider multi-input multi-output (MIMO) Rayleigh-fading channels with coarsely quantized outputs, where the channel is unknown to the transmitter and receiver. This analysis is of interest in the context of sensor network communication with low cost devices. The key point is that the analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) for such applications should be(More)
1-bit digital-to-analog (DACs) and analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are gaining more interest in massive MIMO systems for economical and computational efficiency. We present a new precoding technique to mitigate the inter-user-interference (IUI) and the channel distortions in a 1-bit downlink MU-MISO system with QPSK symbols. The transmit signal vector(More)
The problem of parameter estimation from large noisy data is considered. If the observation size N is large, the calculation of efficient estimators is computationally expensive. Further, memory can be a limiting factor in technical systems where data is stored for later processing. Here we follow the idea of reducing the size of the observation by(More)
We present a general problem formulation for optimal parameter estimation based on quantized observations, with application to antenna array communication and processing (channel estimation, time-of-arrival (TOA) and direction-ofarrival (DOA) estimation). The work is of interest in the case when low resolution A/D-converters (ADCs) have to be used to enable(More)
We propose a novel linear minimum-mean-squared-error (MMSE) precoder design for a downlink (DL) massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) scenario. For economical and computational efficiency reasons low resolution 1-bit digital-to-analog (DAC) and analog-to-digital (ADC) converters are used. This comes at the cost of performance gain that can be(More)
