In this paper, an analytical framework for evaluating the performance of scalable cell-free massive MIMO (SCFmMIMO) systems in which all user equipments (UEs) and access points (APs) employ finite resolution digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and operates under correlated Rician fading, is presented. By using maximalratio combining (MRC) detection, generic expressions for the uplink (UL) spectral efficiency (SE) for both distributed and centralized… Expand

Numerical results show that the centralized receiver cooperation needs more quantization bits to achieve the ideal performance and a low-complexity power control method for maximizing the sum SE is efficient for improving the system performance. Expand
Performance Analysis of Mixed-ADC Massive MIMO Systems Over Rician Fading Channels
This work investigates the performance of mixed-ADC massive MIMO systems over the Rician fading channel, which is more general for the 5G scenarios like Internet of Things, and reveals the tradeoff between the achievable rate and the energy efficiency. Expand
Throughput Analysis of Massive MIMO Uplink With Low-Resolution ADCs
It is illustrated that, for the 1-bit quantized case, pilot-based channel estimation together with maximal-ratio combing, or zero-forcing detection enables reliable multi-user communication with high-order constellations, in spite of the severe nonlinearity introduced by the ADCs. Expand
Cell-Free Massive MIMO Systems With Low Resolution ADCs
This paper investigates the achievable performance of cell-free massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with low resolution analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) at both the access points (APs) and users and proposes an ADC resolution bits allocation scheme which substantially outperforms the equal ADC resolution bit allocation scheme.

On the Performance of Cell-Free Massive MIMO With Low-Resolution ADCs
This paper derives a tight approximate expression for uplink spectral efficiency (SE) from the additive quantization noise model (AQNM), and investigates the tradeoff between the SE and energy efficiency (EE) with design issues surrounding the quantization bit of low-resolution ADCs and the number of antennas.

Performance Analysis of TDD Multicell Massive MIMO Systems With Non-Orthogonal Pilots and Hardware Imperfections in Rician Fading Channels
The tradeoff between UL energy efficiency (EE) and UL-SE has been investigated by analyzing the performance of several receive detection strategies as a function of the employed ADC quantization bits (Q-bits) and the optimal ADC/DAC Q-bit region which maximizes the DL-EE is identified. Expand
Making Cell-Free Massive MIMO Competitive With MMSE Processing and Centralized Implementation
It turns out that it is possible to outperform conventional Cellular Massive MIMO and small cell networks by a wide margin, but only using global or local minimum mean-square error (MMSE) combining, in sharp contrast to the existing literature, which advocates for maximum-ratio combining. Expand
Performance of cell-free massive MIMO systems with MMSE and LSFD receivers
The uplink performance of cell-free systems with minimum mean squared error (MMSE) and large scale fading decoding (LSFD) receivers is investigated and an asymptotic approximation for signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) of MMSE receiver is derived as a function of large Scale fading coefficients only.
