A Low Complexity Near-Maximum Likelihood MIMO Receiver with Low Resolution Analog-to-Digital Converters

04/19/2019 ∙ by Arkady Molev-Shteiman, et al. ∙ 0

Based on a new equivalent model of quantizer with noisy input recently presented in [23], we propose a new low complexity receiver that takes into account the nonlinear distortion (NLD) generated by Analog to Digital converter (ADC) with insufficient resolution. The strength of new model is that it presents the NLD as a function of only the desired part of input signal (without noise). Therefore it can easily be used in a variety of NLD mitigation techniques. Here, as an illustration of this, we use a pseudo-ML approach to detect the original QAM modulation based on the equivalent transfer function and exhaustive search. Simulation results for a single user QAM under flat fading show performance equivalent to a true ML receiver, but with much lower computational complexity. The excellent performance of our receiver is an independent validation of the model [23].
