Performance Analysis of RVQ-Based Limited Feedback Beamforming Codebooks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Codebooks based on Random Vector Quantization (RVQ) are popular in limited feedback beamforming applications over MIMO channels because of their low-complexity properties. The goal of this paper is on understanding the performance of an ensemble of RVQ codebooks as a function of the number of bits of feedback (B), antenna dimensions, and spatial correlation. Prior work on RVQ performance has focused primarily on the large B regime: in either the MISO case (both i.i.d. as well as correlated channels) and the MIMO case (i.i.d. channels). In this paper, the authors develop a unified framework tailored to the case of correlated MIMO channels and arbitrary choice of B.
