Machine learning using neural networks in digital signal processing for RF transceivers

  • Fischer G.

Communication is changing to a wireless world. Any wireless communication system needs radio frontends (transceivers) to link higher layer signals to the air interface. The increasing standard and technology diversity require transceivers with high flexibility supporting many of frequencies, standards and signal requirements. Design to cost, the demand for highest energy efficiency and MIMO systems don't ease the challenges for transceiver designs. A change in paradigm can be an opener to face these challenges for future systems. This work presents the use of neural networks for signal processing, impairment mitigation, control and optimization in transceiver systems.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
