In this work we design the precoders/combiners for a multiuser mmWave system considering a frequency selective channel model. We assume that the available channel information is imperfect, and only the estimates of the autocorrelation of the received signal, and the cross-correlation with the transmitted signal are available. Using this knowledge, the precoder and combiners are designed via an iterative MMSE algorithm. The solutions are decomposed into the frequency-flat analog and frequency-selective digital precoders/combiners, which obtain a close performance to the all-digital solution in terms of achievable rate as shown in the simulations.
