This paper establishes the capacity of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels with phase-quantized output. We show that a rotated $2^{b}$-phase shift keying scheme is the capacity-achieving input distribution for a complex AWGN channel with b-bit phase quantization. The result is then used to establish the expression for the channel capacity as a function of average power constraint $P$ and quantization bits $b$. The outage performance of phase-quantized system is also investigated for…

On the Capacity-Achieving Input of Channels with Phase Quantization
This paper considers four different channel models with multi-bit phase quantization at the output and identifies the optimal input distribution for each channel model and presents an optimum power control scheme which achieves ergodic capacity when CSI is also available at the transmitter.
On the Capacity-Achieving Input of the Gaussian Channel with Polar Quantization
It is shown that the capacity-achieving modulation scheme has an amplitude phase shift keying (APSK) structure and the existence of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) thresholds, above which the number of amplitude levels of the optimal APSK scheme and their respective probabilities change abruptly.


Fading channels with 1-bit output quantization: Optimal modulation, ergodic capacity and outage probability
Considering the outage probability for Rayleigh fading, L-PSK with large L shows the best performance among conventional modulation schemes, and circular symmetry with at most one amplitude per phase is a necessary condition for optimal modulation.
Analysis of Rayleigh-fading channels with 1-bit quantized output
This paper considers multi-input multi-output (MIMO) Rayleigh-fading channels with coarsely quantized outputs, where the channel is unknown to the transmitter and receiver, and shows that on-off QPSK signaling is the capacity achieving distribution.
Phase Modulated Communication with Low-Resolution ADCs
It is observed that a transceiver architecture with n-bit quantization is asymptotically optimum in terms of communication reliability if n ≥ log<sub>2</sub> M + 1, and using an extra quantization bit improves communication reliability significantly.
Capacity Lower Bound of MIMO Channels with Output Quantization and Correlated Noise
A lower bound on the channel capacity of quantized MIMO channels is derived based on the Bussgang decomposition based on possible noise correlation and reveals that noise correlation might reduce the capacity loss due to quantization when compared to the uncorrelated noise case.
Phase-Quantized Block Noncoherent Communication
This work considers transmission over the block noncoherent additive white Gaussian noise channel, and investigates the achievable performance under low-precision output quantization, and focuses attention on an architecture in which the receiver quantizes only the phase of the received signal.

Simulation results show that quantizing with q = 1 + log2 M bits provides comparable performance in Rayleigh fading to the idealized (unquantized) AF protocol as well as to an adaptive decode- and-forward protocol at frame error rates of practical interest.
Capacity-Achieving Signal and Capacity of Gaussian Mixture Channels with 1-bit Output Quantization
This paper addresses the optimal signaling scheme and capacity of an additive Gaussian mixture (GM) noise channel using 1-bit output quantization and demonstrates that the maximum number of mass points in the capacity-achieving signal is four.
Optimal Signaling Schemes and Capacity of Non-Coherent Rician Fading Channels With Low-Resolution Output Quantization
The goal of this work is to address the design of optimal signaling schemes and establish the capacity limit of Rician fading channels with low-resolution output quantization and characterization of the optimal input.
The capacity of discrete-time memoryless Rayleigh-fading channels
The capacity-achieving distribution of a discrete-time Rayleigh fading channel, in which successive symbols face independent fading, and where neither the transmitter nor the receiver has channel state information is studied.
Optimal Precoding for Multiuser MIMO Systems With Phase Quantization and PSK Modulation via Branch-and-Bound
An optimal precoding algorithm constrained to constant envelope signals and phase quantization that maximizes the minimum distance to the decision threshold at the receivers using a branch-and-bound strategy is proposed.
