A Hardware Efficient Implementation of a Digital Baseband Receiver for High-Capacity Millimeter-Wave Radios
Journal article, 2015

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 converter’s 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.
