Abstract

Further exploitation of the spatial domain, as in Massive MIMO (MaMi) systems, is imperative to meet future communication requirements [1]. Up-scaling of conventional 4×4 small-scale MIMO implementations to MaMi is prohibitive in-terms of flexibility, as well as area and power cost. This work discloses a 1.1mm2 128×8 MaMi baseband chip, achieving up to 12dB array and 2× spatial multiplexing gains. The area cost compared to previous state-of-the-art MIMO implementations [2-3], is reduced by 53% and 17% for up- and down-link, respectively. Algorithm optimizations and a highly flexible framework were evaluated on real measured channels. Extensive hardware time multiplexing lowered area cost, and leveraging on flexible FD-SOI body bias and clock gating resulted in an energy efficiency of 6.56nJ/QRD and 60pJ/b at 300Mb/s detection rate.
