Abstract

Use of low resolution analog to digital converters (ADCs) is an effective way to reduce the high power consumption of millimeter wave (mmWave) receivers. In this paper, a receiver with low resolution ADCs based on adaptive thresholds is considered in downlink mmWave communications in which the channel state information is not known a-priori and acquired through channel estimation. A performance comparison of low-complexity algorithms for power and ADC allocation among transmit and receive terminals, respectively, is provided. Through simulation of practical mmWave cellular networks, it is shown that the use of low resolution ADCs does not significantly degrade the system throughput (as compared to a conventional fully digital high resolution receiver) when using the adaptive threshold receiver in conjunction with simple power and ADC allocation strategies.
