Compressive Sensing Based Channel Estimation for High-order MIMO Systems

Zhiguo Lv, Ying Li

Abstract


The high-order multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system can remarkably increase the data rate or enhance the reliability. However, it is difficult to perform channel estimation because of the massive number of antennas. The Narrow Band Estimation Antenna Processing (NBEAP) scheme is used to deal with this issue. Nevertheless, the accuracy of the channel estimation needs to be improved. In this paper, a compressive sensing based scheme named Narrow Band Estimation Fixed Antenna Processing (NBEFAP) is proposed to estimate the channel state information (CSI) for high-order MIMO systems. A simple pilot structure is designed to decrease the computation complexity. In addition, the pilot length is adjusted according to the time-varying sparsity level of the CSI. Compared with NBEAP scheme, NBEFAP scheme can improve the estimation error performance. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the NBEFAP scheme.
