In this letter, air-induced passive intermodulation (PIM) modeling and cancellation schemes are presented in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) frequency-division duplexing (FDD) transceiver context. PIM is distortion generated by nonlinear passive devices either within the transmitter chain or outside the transceiver system, as is the case in air-induced PIM. In FDD systems, the PIM products may lie on the receiver band, thus possibly desensitizing the receiver chain. Unlike previous PIM cancellation works, we consider a challenging rank-2 dual-carrier MIMO transceiver scenario, with two spatially multiplexed signals per component carrier (CC). Stemming from the PIM modeling, we first present a cancellation method based on a complete set of identified basis functions (BFs). Additionally, to relax the processing complexity, we propose an alternative canceller solution with a reduced number of BFs, inspired by the problem modeling. RF measurements conducted with real-life equipment indicate favorable PIM suppression levels of up to 20 dB using both introduced techniques.
