Transmitter architectures in radio and wireless communications are highly susceptible to gain and phase imbalances triggered by the analog quadrature modulator. An efficient yet, simple adaptive approach for estimating these impairments has been proposed comparing the instantaneous powers of the output and input signal without interrupting the transmission mode using a batch-gradient descent algorithm. The proposed methodology is tested for different values of I/Q imbalances and different batch-size in both simulations and on hardware platform. The technique shows a significant suppression of image with an image to signal ratio as low as 50 dB for a batch-size as low as 1000-1500 with the inclusion of noise (Signal-to-noise ratio = 60 dB). The simulation and hardware results at a carrier frequency of 2.14 GHz validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. The results have been compared with a state-of-the-art method in literature and show improved results, robustness with lesser computational complexity.
