Electrical and computer engineering, I/Q imbalance correction
Integrated circuits--Design and construction, Integrated circuits--Reliability
Most modern integrated circuit transceivers, especially wireless LAN, utilize a direct conversion radio architecture. While this approach is highly advantageous from the perspectives of cost and flexibility, there exist several performance impairments, including gain and phase imbalances between the in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) of a transmitter (TX) or receiver (RX). The dissertation presents several signal processing methodologies for compensation of I/Q imbalance for a direct conversion packet-switched OFDM communications system, whichl accounts for TX I/Q imbalance, RX I/Q imbalance, phase/frequency error, and dispersive multipath fading. Both frequency dependent I/Q imbalance and frequency independent cases are considered, covering both m00hvch1 j,lk and narrowband modulation. The proposed estimation algorithms operate within the fully compliant framework of existing multi-user OFDM radio standards (802.11a). It is shown that these algorithms accurately estimate and correct transceiver I/Q imbalance on a packet-by-packet basis, all within the RX's digital baseband.
