MIMO-UFMC Transceiver Schemes for Millimeter Wave Wireless Communications

Project Code :TMRECO19_08


The main objective of this project is to design an MIMO-UFMC modulation system for mmWave communications which increases the data rate of the system.


Our work focuses on the design and analysis of an UFMC transceiver equipped with multiple antennas and operating at millimeter wave carrier frequencies. The UFMC modulation is among the most considered solutions for the realization of beyond-OFDM air interfaces for future wireless networks. Our proposed model provides the full mathematical model of a MIMO-UFMC transceiver, taking into account the presence of hybrid analog/digital beam formers at both ends of the communication links. Then, several detection structures are proposed, both for the case of single-packet isolated transmission, and for the case of multiple-packet continuous transmission. 

In the latter situation, we also considers the case in which no guard time among adjacent packets is inserted, trading off an increased level of interference with higher values of spectral efficiency. At the analysis stage, the several considered detection structures and transmission schemes are compared in terms of bit-error-rate, root-mean-square-error, and system throughput. The numerical results show that the proposed transceiver algorithms are effective and that the linear MMSE data detector is capable of well managing the increased interference brought by the removal of guard times among consecutive packets, thus yielding throughput gains of about 10 - 13 %. The effect of phase noise at the receiver is also numerically assessed, and it is shown that the recursive implementation of the linear MMSE exhibits some degree of robustness against this disturbance.
