In this paper, we focus on a general multi-pair massive MIMO amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying system where the relay antennas employ low-resolution analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) to reduce the hardware cost. First, considering the effect of low quantization on channel estimation, a tight closed form approximation of the system ergodic achievable rate is derived. Second, some asymptotic analysis is presented to reveal the impacts of the system parameters on the achievable rate… CONTINUE READING
