MIMO Pre-Equalization With Decision Feedback for High-Speed Chip-to-Chip Communication

In this contribution, we present a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transceiver scheme for very high-speed off-chip communication over low-cost electrical interconnects. Linear MIMO pre-equalization at the transmitter is combined with decision feedback equalization (DFE) at the receiver to counteract the adverse effect of inter symbol interference (ISI) and crosstalk (XT). Elegant closed-form expressions for the minimum mean square error equalization filters are derived under a total transmit energy constraint. Numerical analysis shows that the combination of linear MIMO pre-equalization and MIMO DFE allows to significantly improve the reliability of future high-speed off-chip communication.

  • Segall I.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new networking paradigm in which network functionality is implemented on top of virtual infrastructure deployed over COTS servers. One of the main motivations for the shift of telco operators into this paradigm is cost reduction, thus the efficient use of resources is an important ...

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a novel paradigm allowing flexible and scalable implementation of network services on cloud infrastructure. An important enabler for the NFV paradigm is software switching, which needs to satisfy rigid network requirements such as high throughput and low latency. Despite recent research activities in the field ...

Coexistence-aware dynamic channel allocation for 3.5 GHz shared spectrum systems

The paradigm of shared spectrum allows secondary devices to opportunistically access spectrum bands underutilized by primary owners. As the first step, the FCC targeted sharing the 3.5 GHz (3550–3700 MHz) federal spectrum with commercial systems. The proposed rules require a Spectrum Access System to implement a three-tiered spectrum management framework, ...
