    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we develop a novel iterative equal- ization algorithm for energy-spreading-transform (EST) based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. We show that the proposed scheme significantly outperforms the existing non- linear MIMO equalizers in various system setups. We further in- vestigate the precoder design based on the signal-to-interference- plus-noise-ratio (SINR) variance evolution technique, so as to exploit the available channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT). We derive the optimal precoding directions, and show that the precoder optimization then boils down to a simple power allocation problem that is solvable using convex programming. Numerical results demonstrate that the optimized precoder can achieve a significant power gain, as compared with the non- optimized scheme

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to propose a compensation strategy that is able to easily identify the model of the In-phase/Quadrature (I/Q) impairments of Radio-Frequency (RF) direct-conversion devices and to efficiently compensate these unwanted effects. In fact, direct-conversion transmitters that integrate analog and digital components introduce a wideband frequency-dependent I/Q mismatch that strongly reduces the upconverter performances. The wider the signal bandwidth or the higher its spectral efficiency, the more severe the I/Q artifacts on the upconverted signal become. The proposed compensation strategy can mitigate these unwanted effects, eliminating I/Q impairments with a very simple hardware architecture. The compensation model adopted here for a generic upconverter device does not assume any hypotheses about signal modulation and system architecture and can be easily adapted to accommodate specific hardware systems or different wireless standards. To show the capabilities of the proposed compensation scheme, an experimental setup has been arranged to emulate system configurations found in direct-conversion RF Integrated Circuits (RFIC) for 3.5/4G applications.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a space-time semi-blind equalizer (ST-SBE) for dispersive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems that employ high throughput quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) signals. A novel cost function (CF) that integrates multimodulus algorithm (MMA) with soft decision-directed (SDD) scheme is established to efficiently obtain the weight vector associated with the ST-SBE. In the ST-SBE, a very short training sequence is used to provide a rough initial least squares estimate of the weight vector. An efficient modified Newton method (MNM) for minimizing the established cost function is proposed to fast search the optimal weight vector. Very interestingly, we prove that the proposed MNM has the same quadratic order of convergence as Newton methods. In addition, the proposed MNM has much lower computational complexity than Newton methods. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate that the ST-SBE has better performances than the gradient-Newton (GN)-based concurrent constant modulus algorithm (CMA) with SDD scheme (GN-CMA+SDD).

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider physical layer security provisioning in multi-cell massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Specifically, we consider secure downlink transmission in a multi-cell massive MIMO system with matched-filter precoding and artificial noise (AN) generation at the base station (BS) in the presence of a passive multi-antenna eavesdropper. We investigate the resulting achievable ergodic secrecy rate and the secrecy outage probability for the cases of perfect training and pilot contamination. Thereby, we consider two different AN shaping matrices, namely, the conventional AN shaping matrix, where the AN is transmitted in the null space of the matrix formed by all user channels, and a random AN shaping matrix, which avoids the complexity associated with finding the null space of a large matrix. Our analytical and numerical results reveal that in multi-cell massive MIMO systems employing matched-filter precoding (1) AN generation is required to achieve a positive ergodic secrecy rate if the user and the eavesdropper experience the same path-loss, (2) even with AN generation secure transmission may not be possible if the number of eavesdropper antennas is too large and not enough power is allocated to channel estimation, (3) for a given fraction of power allocated to AN and a given number of users, in case of pilot contamination, the ergodic secrecy rate is not a monotonically increasing function of the number of BS antennas, and (4) random AN shaping matrices provide a favourable performance/complexity tradeoff and are an attractive alternative to conventional AN shaping matrices.
