|Title||The hardware impairments impact on fixed-gain AF relaying performance in Nakagami-m fading|
|Authors||Cabarkapa, M., Neskovic, N., Budimir, D. and Maletic, N.|
The effects of joint hardware impairments on the performance of fixed gain amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying are studied. By considering IQ imbalance at the source and destination and the nonlinear relay the outage probability over Nakagami-m fading channels is derived, and the effects of fading and hardware impairments on the system are analysed.
The analytical results are verified by Monte Carlo simulations.
