Cognitive Radio (CR) communication has been considered as one of the promising technologies to enable dynamic spectrum sharing in the next generation of wireless networks. Among several possible enabling techniques, Spectrum Sensing (SS) is one of the key aspects for enabling opportunistic spectrum access in CR Networks (CRN). From practical perspectives, it is important to design low-complexity wideband CR receiver having low resolution Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) working at a reasonable sampling rate. In this context, this paper proposes a novel spatio-temporal wideband SS technique by employing multiple antennas and one-bit quantization at the CR node, which subsequently enables the use of a reasonable sampling rate. In our analysis, we show that for the same sensing performance requirements, the proposed wideband receiver can have lower power consumption than the conventional CR receiver equipped with a single-antenna and a high-resolution ADC. Furthermore, the proposed technique exploits the spatial dimension by estimating the direction of arrival of Primary User (PU) signals, which is not possible by the conventional SS methods and can be of a significant benefit in a CRN. Moreover, we evaluate the performance of the proposed technique and analyze the effects of one-bit quantization with the help of numerical results. [less ▲]
