A Hardware Efficient Implementation of a Digital Baseband Receiver for High-Capacity Millimeter-Wave Radios
2015 (English)In: IEEE transactions on microwave theory and techniques, ISSN 0018-9480, E-ISSN 1557-9670, Vol. 63, no 5, 1683-1692 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This paper presents an implementation solution for a digital baseband receiver, which consists mainly of an analog symbol timing recovery (STR) block and a digital carrier recovery block. The STR is realized based on "one-sample-per-symbol" sampling, resulting in relaxed requirement on the A/D converters sampling speed. In this sense, the proposed implementation solution is hardware efficient. To functionally verify the solution, a proof-of-concept E-band link system is implemented and tested in the laboratory, which supports 5-Gbit/s data traffic using 16 quadrature amplitude modulation. The test results demonstrate that the proposed solution works for high-capacity millimeter-wave radios for point-to-point links, one of the targeted applications.
