Abstract: Massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) is believed to be an effective technique for future terrestrial broadcasting systems. Reciprocity calibration is one of the major practical challenges for massive MIMO systems operating in Time-Division Duplexing (TDD) mode. A new closed-loop reciprocity calibration method is investigated in this paper which can support online calibration with a higher accuracy compared to the existing methods. In the first part of the proposed method, an optimized relative calibration is introduced using the same structure of traditional relative calibration but with less impaired hardware in the reference radio chain. In the second part, a test device (TD) based calibration is proposed which makes online calibration possible. An experiment setup is built for the measurement of the BS hardware impairments and TD based calibration implementation. Simulation results and the error vector magnitude (EVM) of UE received signal after calibration show that the performance of our proposed method is improved significantly compared to the existing relative calibration methods.
