Millimetre waves (mm-Waves) with massive multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) have the potential to fulfill fifth generation (5G) traffic demands. In this paper, a hybrid digital-to-analog (D-A) precoding system is investigated and a particle swarm optimisation (PSO) based joint D-A precoding optimisation algorithm is proposed. This algorithm maximises the capacity of the hybrid D-A mm-Wave massive MIMO system. The proposed algorithm is compared with three known hybrid D-A precoding algorithms. The analytical and simulation results show that the proposed algorithm achieves higher capacity than the existing hybrid D-A precoding algorithms.
