||There has been much effort in new design for transceiver used in mobile communications. The general approach is to combine RF functions with DSP to allow linear modulation techniques and permit flexibility of modulation format and receiver processing. In practice, with the quadrature modulation technique there is always some imbalance between the I- and Q channels of modulator and demodulator. This is mainly due to finite tolerances of capacitor and resistor values used to implement the analog components. The unavoidable imbalance between the I- and Q channels is known to degrade the performance of quadrature communication system.|
The main concern of this thesis is to propose a new blind scheme and with fast convergence algorithm, such as the inverse QRD-RLS algorithm, to deal with the problem described above for compensation in the transmitter and receiver. First, for the transmitter, the so-called adaptive estimation and compensation with power measurement implemented by the inverse QRD-RLS algorithm is employed. While in the receiver, a new blind adaptive filtering approach of the nonlinear parameters estimation and compensation, along with the power measurement in the receiver, is devised to adaptively compensate for the gain/phase imbalance and DC offsets in a quadrature demodulator. Where the conventional inverse QRD-RLS algorithm is employed for estimating the parameters of compensator, without using any reference signal transmitted from the transmitter. To document the merits of the proposed scheme, computer simulation for the coherent 16-PSK-communication system is carried out. With our proposed method a great improvement for eliminating the effects of the imbalance and offset over the existing techniques has verified. It has rapidly convergence rate and the smaller mean square error in steady state.
