Short-range digital communications at 60 GHz have recently received a lot of interest because of the huge bandwidth available at those frequencies. The capacity offered to the users could finally reach 2 Gbps, enabling the deployment of new multimedia applications. However, the design of analog components is critical, leading to a possible high nonideality… (More)
—The large bandwidth available at 60 GHz together with the resulting wavelength of only 5 mm allow the design of multi-gigabit/s wireless devices equipped with large arrays of tiny antennas. This enables wireless communication of large contents multimedia such as high-definition video. However, due to the high cost and power consumption of analog frond-end… (More)
—In this paper, we develop a new low-complexity linear frequency domain equalization (FDE) approach for continuous phase modulated (CPM) signals. As a CPM signal is highly correlated, calculating a linear minimum mean square error (MMSE) channel equalizer requires the inversion of a non-diagonal matrix, even in the frequency domain. In order to regain the… (More)
—This work evaluates the system-level performance of 60 GHz channels by simulating a realistic living room scenario with various numbers of humans and three different antenna configurations. In the first step, a comprehensive ray tracing study with a 3D ray tracing tool is performed to determine the channel impulse responses. Feeding our PHY simulator with… (More)
found to be slightly less affected than SC-CP in both flat channels and frequency selective channels. It is shown also that CPE is the dominate impact if the PN cutoff frequency is smaller than the subcarrier spacing.
