Sequence Design for Multi-Beam Transmission from an Electronic Transmitter in Millimeter Wave Systems
5G New Radio (5G NR) is a completely new air interface being developed for 5G and millimeter-wave (mmWave) is the prioritized candidate technology. Multiple and highly directional beams are necessary to overcome the isotropic pathloss. Therefore, the electronic transmitter must broadcast the information about the beam identity (BID) along with the cell identity (CID) for beam and cell synchronization. In this paper, a hierarchal sequence is designed for mmWave cellular systems to detect multi-beams transmitted from an electronic transmitter. The sequence carrying the combined information regarding CID and BID can be used for beam and cell synchronization. The properties of the beam and cell synchronization signal (BCSS) such as the constant amplitude, autocorrelation, cross-correlation are analyzed. In addition, it is shown that the proposed technique with the BCSS can significantly reduce the processing time for power measurement and cell selection.
