  • Publication number: 20200366390
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method and apparatus for measuring wireless performance of a receiver of a wireless terminal, and a non-transitory computer readable storage medium. The method includes the following. A measured signal of a receiver to be measured is determined. Measured signals of other receivers except the receiver to be measured are zero. Multiple transmitted signals are determined based on the measured signals. The multiple transmitted signals are transmitted through multiple measurement antennas. When a bit error rate of the receiver to be measured does not equal a preset bit error rate, the measured signal is adjusted, determining the multiple transmitted signals based on the updated measured signal. When the bit error rate equals the preset error rate, a power of the measured signal is determined as the radiant sensitivity of the receiver to be measured.

  • Patent number: 10389414
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatuses for matrix compensation to prevent rank deficiency. In some aspects, a channel matrix is formed based on channel feedback matrices that are received from multiple devices. The channel matrix is transformed to provide a channel covariance matrix, which is then decomposed into a unitary matrix and Eigen value matrix components. Diagonal values of the Eigen value matrix are increased to provide a compensated Eigen value matrix. Based on the compensated Eigen value matrix, a steering matrix is determined for steering transmissions through the channel to the multiple devices. By compensating the Eigen value matrix, rank deficiency issues that typically result in failed steering matrix calculations can be prevented. Alternately or additionally, a dynamic range of the steering matrix calculations may be reduced by compensating matrices, enabling steering matrices to be calculated with less-complex or fewer hardware resources.

  • Patent number: 10348380
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatuses for singular value decomposition with norm sorting. In some aspects, a sounding frame is received through a channel of a wireless medium. Based on the sounding frame, a channel covariance matrix describing conditions of the channel can be determined. The channel covariance matrix is then decomposed, with an ortho-normal matrix, to provide an intermediate matrix of vectors. One or more vectors of the intermediate matrix are sorted based on a respective norm to provide a norm-sorted matrix of the vectors. A steering matrix for the channel is then generated by ortho-normalizing at least two vectors of the norm-sorted matrix. By so doing, a steering matrix can be generated quickly and efficiently for use in subsequent communication operations.
