    Fast static characterization of residual-based ADCs

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs ; Volume 60, Issue 11 , 2013 , Pages 746-750 ; 15497747 (ISSN) Hassanpourghadi, M ; Sharifkhani, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Computationally exhaustive time-domain Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are commonly conducted to obtain the static characteristics of a residual analog-to-digital converter (ADC) (e.g., pipelined ADC) for the calculation of the integral nonlinearity (INL) and differential nonlinearity (DNL). In this brief, a new ultrahigh-speed, yet precise, behavioral-level dc characterization algorithm for residual-based ADC is introduced. The algorithm derives the transition points of a given stage of the ADC based on the random parameters of that stage. Then, it merges the dc characteristics of all stages together to extract detailed dc input-output characteristics for the entire ADC. Then, the exact amount... 

    Design and Implementation of Baseband Processing Algorithms in Massive MIMO Systems

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mirfarshbafan, Hadi (Author) ; Shabany, Mahdi (Supervisor)
    Massive MIMO is a key enabling technology in the fifth generation (5G) wireless communication systems. In this technology, the base station is equipped with a large number of antennas (e.g. 100-200) and communicates with a relatively smaller number of user terminals. The large number of antennas at the base station, on one hand, has enabled unprecedented improvements in data rate and energy-efficiency, while on the other hand has posed challenges on the practical deployment of this technology.One of these challenges, is the high computational complexity of the baseband processing algorithms, such as precoding, due to the large number of antennas. In this research, we propose a novel ZF... 

    Applications and performance of optical analog-to-digital converter and optical logic gate elements in multilevel multiclass fiber-optic CDMA systems

    , Article IEEE Journal on Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics ; Volume 16, Issue 5 , 2010 , Pages 1476-1485 ; 1077260X (ISSN) Ghaffari, B. M ; Salehi, J. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we present and analyze a novel all-optical multilevel multiclass optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) system, using optical analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and advanced optical logic gate elements. In such OCDMA network, users are distributed in Mdifferent classes. Furthermore, power level with which users in class j,j = 2⋯M, transmit optical pulses, is twice the power level at which users of class j - 1transmit their optical pulses. We achieve optical transmitter structure that satisfies these conditions using power control schemes. Also, we suggest two receiver structures for the aforementioned multiclass multilevel system. The first and simple receiver structure... 

    Beamforming, null-steering, and simultaneous spatial and frequency domain filtering in integrated phased array systems

    In the case that phased array systems are not capable of attenuating interferences, Radio Frequency (RF) front-ends and Analog Digital Converters (ADCs) with a large dynamic range are required to avoid saturation of the receiver. This leads to a higher power consumption. In this paper, employing N-path circuits in Mixer-First receivers, a novel method is introduced in which spatial and frequency blockers are eliminated right before entering the system on the antennas input. In fact using this technique, adjustable spatial notch filter and band-pass frequency filter are implemented to suppress spatial and frequency interferences. The proposed method enhances the robustness and effectiveness...
