We analytically evaluated the effects of the analog components on a high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) system standardized by 3GPP. We considered the phase noise of synthesizers, the imbalance of demodulators between in-phase and quadrature channels, and the filters. The components are represented by the appropriate equations. We applied adaptive modulation and coding methods for HSDPA systems and base station transmission of adequate data rate signals complying with quality estimated by mobile stations (MSs). The quality represents a data rate indicating that MSs can receive the signals. We estimated the quality using a conventional signal-to-interference measurement of the common pilot channel (CPICH) and found that the phase noise creates a mismatch relationship between the quality and the data rate, while the demodulator imbalance and filters create a suitable relationship. We confirmed this using analytic methods and computer simulation.
