Simplified Architectures for Analogue Antenna Combining

Abstract

An architecture for implementing the maximum ratio combining (MRC) in the radio-frequency (RF) domain has recently been proposed based on applying vector modulators at each branch. In this paper we study a simplified architecture, which eliminates the need for IQ mixing and reduces the number of adders. Interestingly, the optimal beamforming solution… (More)
