In millimeter-wave communications (MMWC), multipath components (MPCs) have different steering angles and independent fadings. Park and Pan recently proposed a simple scheme for both transmitter and receiver to concurrently beamform towards multiple steering angles of MPCs to achieve both array gain and diversity gain. However, when the number of MPCs is greater than that of the transmit or receive antennas, a solution of antenna weight vector (AWV) does not exist. To cope with this problem, two… CONTINUE READING
