An investigation into the implementation and performance of spectrally shaped orthogonal frequency division multiplex

Bhatoolaul, David Lahiri January 1999 (has links)
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) is a flexible, robust multi-carrier modulation scheme. The orthogonal spectral shaping and spacing of OFDM sub-carriers ensure that their spectra can be over-lapped without leading to undesirable inter-carrier interference. Conventional OFDM systems have non-band limited Sinc(x) shaped subcarrier spectra. An alternative form of OFDM, referred to hereafter as Spectrally Shaped OFDM, employs band limited Nyquist shaped sub-carrier spectra. The research described in this thesis investigates the strengths and weaknesses of Spectrally Shaped OFDM as a potential modulation scheme for future mobile radio applications. From this research a novel Digital Signal Processing architecture for modulating and demodulating Spectrally Shaped OFDM sub-carriers has been derived which exploits the combination of a complex Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and PolyPhase Network (PPN) filter. This architecture is shown to significantly reduce the minimum number of computations required per symbol compared to previous designs. Using a custom coded computer simulation, the effects of varying the key parameters of the novel architecture's PolyPhase Filter (PPN) filter an the overall system complexity, spectral performance and system signal-to-distortion have been extensively studied. From these studies it is shown that compared to similar conventional OFDM systems, Spectrally Shaped OFDM systems possess superior out-of-band spectral qualities but significantly worse Peak-to-Average-Power-Ratio (PAPR) envelope performance. lt is also shown that the absolute value of the end PPN filter coefficients (dependent on the roll-off factor of the sub-carrier spectral shaping) dictate the system signal-to-distortion ratio when no time-domain windowing of the PPN filter coefficients is applied. Finally the effects of a both time and frequency selective fast fading channels on the modulation scheme's uncoded Bit Error Rate (BER) versus Signal-to-Noise (SNR) performance are simulated. The results obtained indicate that Spectrally Shaped OFDM is more robust (lower BER) to frequency-selective fading than time-selective fading.

A comparison of two novel channel coding techniques for CDMA

Kim, Young M. 03 March 2009 (has links)
In Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) systems forward error correction (FEC) is an important factor in improving system performance. Because of the multiple access interference observed in asynchronous CDMA, FEC is required to improve system capacity. Several alternative coding techniques are available, including "trellis codes" specifically designed for CDMA, very low rate convolutional codes and conventional convolutional codes. An analytic approach is developed to compare the performance of different coding techniques for CDMA on the same basis by extending several improved analysis techniques which were developed for uncoded CDMA. Analytic results are presented for additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels and frequency non-selective Rician Fading (FNRF) channels. The performance of coded CDMA systems in frequency selective Rayleigh fading channels is also analyzed using simulation techniques. Both analytic and simulation results show that by using trellis codes or very low rate convolutional codes significant performance improvement is achieved over conventional convolutional codes. Trellis codes outperform very low rate convolutional codes in AWGN and FNRF channels while both codes show similar performance in frequency selective Rayleigh fading channels. / Master of Science
