    The theoretical capacity of the spatial correlated Rayleigh multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channel is an important issue in MIMO technology. In this article, an ergodic channel capacity formula of the spatial correlated rayleigh MIMO channel is provided, which is deduced when two antennas exist at either the transmitter or the receiver. The multi-dimensional least-squares fit algorithm is employed to narrow the difference between the theoretical formula capacity and the practical capacity. Simulation results show that the theoretical capacity approaches the practical one closely.

    Interference alignment (IA), given uncorrelated channel components and perfect channel state information, obtains the maximum degrees of freedom in an interference channel. Little is known, however, about how the sum rate of IA behaves at finite transmit power, with imperfect channel state information, or antenna correlation. This paper provides an approximate closed-form signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) expression for IA over multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) channels with imperfect channel state information and transmit antenna correlation. Assuming linear processing at the transmitters and zero-forcing receivers, random matrix theory tools are utilized to derive an approximation for the post-processing SINR distribution of each stream for each user. Perfect channel knowledge and i.i.d. channel coefficients constitute special cases. This SINR distribution not only allows easy calculation of useful performance metrics like sum rate and symbol error rate, but also permits a realistic compari...

    Aimed at that only one form of channel statistic information is utilized in traditional robust precoder schemes: either the channel mean or the transmit antenna correlation in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless system, this paper proposes robust precoder designs which exploit both of statistic information to minimize the equalization mean-square error (MSE) with power constraint. Two different power constraints are studied. Besides the usual sum power constraint over all antennas, the per-antenna power constraint is imposed at transmitter in this paper. Since each antenna has its own amplifier, individual power constraint on each antenna is more realistic. Especially in MIMO-OFDM systems, the Peak-to-Average Ratio (PAR) is one of main practical problems. Simulations show that the proposed schemes have better performance than traditional normalized zero forcing schemes for imperfectly known correlated channel. Moreover, per-antenna power constraint can efficiently decrease the demand of dynamic range of power amplifier on each transmit antenna, especially in MIMO-OFDM systems.

    Based on the three-dimensional GBSBCM (geometrically based double bounce cylinder model) channel model of MIMO for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), the simple form of UAV space-time-frequency channel correlation function which includes the LOS, SPE, and DIF components is presented. By the methods of channel matrix decomposition and coefficient normalization, the analytic formula of UAV-MIMO normalized correlation matrix is deduced. This formula can be used directly to analyze the condition number of UAV-MIMO channel matrix, the channel capacity, and other characteristic parameters. The simulation results show that this channel correlation matrix can be applied to describe the changes of UAV-MIMO channel characteristics under different parameter settings comprehensively. This analysis method provides a theoretical basis for improving the transmission performance of UAV-MIMO channel. The development of MIMO technology shows practical application value in the field of UAV communication.

    2006-01-01

    This paper studies the multiuser diversity with constellation selection based on a virtual representation of realistic Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) correlated channels. To realize multiuser diversity in slow fading channels, random beamforming is adopted. Random beamforming matrix exploiting virtual channel representation is constructed, which can match the channel matrix of the desired user better. Simultaneously, adaptive coded modulation is applied to each sub-channel of the selected user to improve the system performance further.

    2011-01-01

    Large dimensional random matrix theory (RMT) has provided an efficient analytical tool to understand multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels and to aid the design of MIMO wireless communication systems. However, previous studies based on large dimensional RMT rely on the assumption that the transmit correlation matrix is diagonal or the propagation channel matrix is Gaussian. There is an increasing interest in the channels where the transmit correlation matrices are generally nonnegative definite and the channel entries are non-Gaussian. This class of channel models appears in several applications in MIMO multiple access systems, such as small cell networks (SCNs). To address these problems, we use the generalized Lindeberg principle to show that the Stieltjes transforms of this class of random matrices with Gaussian or non-Gaussian independent entries coincide in the large dimensional regime. This result permits to derive the deterministic equivalents (e.g., the Stieltjes transform and the ergodic mut...

    2007-01-01

    In real multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, the perfect channel state information (CSI) may be costly or impossible to acquire. But the channel statistical information can be considered relatively stationary during long-term transmission.The statistical information can be obtained at the receiver and fed back to the transmitter and do not require frequent update. By exploiting channel mean and covariance information at the transmitter simultaneously, this paper investigates the optimal transmission strategy for spatially correlated MIMO channels. An upper bound of ergodic capacity is derived and taken as the performance criterion. Simulation results are also given to show the performance improvement of the optimal transmission strategy.

    This paper provides the analysis of capacity expressions in multi-user and multi-cell systems when the transmitters and receivers have a large number of correlated antennas. Our main contribution mathematically translates into a deterministic equivalent of the Shannon transform of a class of large dimensional random matrices. This class of large matrices is used in this contribution to model (i) multi-antenna multiple access (MAC) and broadcast channels (BC) with transmit and receive channel correlation, (ii) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications with inter-cell interference and channel correlation both at the base stations and at the receiver. These models extend the classical results on multi-user MIMO capacities in independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) Gaussian channels to the more realistic Gaussian channels with separable variance profile. On an information theoretical viewpoint, this article provides: in scenario (i), an asymptotic description of the MAC and BC rate regions as ...

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available The performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO systems is greatly influenced by the spatial-temporal correlation properties of the underlying MIMO channels. This paper investigates the spatial-temporal correlation characteristics of the spatial channel model (SCM in the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP and the Kronecker-based stochastic model (KBSM at three levels, namely, the cluster level, link level, and system level. The KBSM has both the spatial separability and spatial-temporal separability at all the three levels. The spatial-temporal separability is observed for the SCM only at the system level, but not at the cluster and link levels. The SCM shows the spatial separability at the link and system levels, but not at the cluster level since its spatial correlation is related to the joint distribution of the angle of arrival (AoA and angle of departure (AoD. The KBSM with the Gaussian-shaped power azimuth spectrum (PAS is found to fit best the 3GPP SCM in terms of the spatial correlations. Despite its simplicity and analytical tractability, the KBSM is restricted to model only the average spatial-temporal behavior of MIMO channels. The SCM provides more insights of the variations of different MIMO channel realizations, but the implementation complexity is relatively high.

    2004-01-01

    Vertically-layered Bell Laboratories Layered Space-Time (VBLAST) is one of the most promising techniques for realizing high spectral efficiencies over wireless link. In previously published work, the performance of VBLAST has been primarily investigated in uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. However in real environments some correlation between antenna elements can be presented. In this paper, we study the impact of transmit correlation on the performance of VBLAST systems. Finally we provide simulation results demonstrating the impact of spatial fading correlation on the symbol error rate of VBLAST.

    Gutman, Igor; Wulich, Dov

    2009-01-01

    Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) precoding is an efficient scheme that may significantly enhance the communication link. However, this enhancement comes with a cost. Many precoding schemes require channel knowledge at the transmitter that is obtained through feedback from the receiver. Focusing on the natural common fusion of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and MIMO, we exploit the channel correlation in the frequency and spatial domain to reduce the required feedback rate in a frequency division duplex (FDD) system. The proposed feedback method is based on Huffman coding and is employed here for the single stream case. The method leads to a significant reduction in the required feedback rate, without any loss in performance. The proposed method may be extended to the multi-stream case.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available The ergodic capacity of MIMO frequency-flat and -selective channels depends greatly on the eigenvalue distribution of spatial correlation matrices. Knowing the eigenstructure of correlation matrices at the transmitter is very important to enhance the capacity of the system. This fact becomes of great importance in MIMO wireless systems where because of the fast changing nature of the underlying channel, full channel knowledge is difficult to obtain at the transmitter. In this paper, we first investigate the effect of eigenvalues distribution of spatial correlation matrices on the capacity of frequency-flat and -selective channels. Next, we introduce a practical scheme known as linear precoding that can enhance the ergodic capacity of the channel by changing the eigenstructure of the channel by applying a linear transformation. We derive the structures of precoders using eigenvalue decomposition and linear algebra techniques in both cases and show their similarities from an algebraic point of view. Simulations show the ability of this technique to change the eigenstructure of the channel, and hence enhance the ergodic capacity considerably.

    Full Text Available A new generation method for spatial and temporal correlated multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO Nakagami fading channel is proposed, which has low complexity and is applicable for arbitrary fading parameters and prespecified correlation coefficients of different subchannel. The new scheme can be divided into two steps: (1 generate independent Nakagami fading sequences for each subchannel based on a novel rejection method; (2 introduce the temporal and spatial correlation based on the relationships between Rayleigh, Gamma, and Nakagami random processes. The analysis and simulation results show that the proposed simulator has a good agreement with the theoretical model on fading envelope distribution, spatial-temporal correlation characteristic.

    Capacity of MIMO LAS-CDMA systems under multi-path fading channels with two different correlating models were studied in the paper. Influences of the two models parameters on capacity were analyzed. The numerical results present that: according to the Various Scattering Environments correlating model, when the inner-elements distance of antennas array is large than 0.5λ, correlation almost does not take from the system capacity; for the Salz-Winter correlating model, the spread angle at receiver is the other key factor, it also influence the system capacity greatly.

    Full Text Available In order to build the MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output channel model based on IEEE 802.16, the way and analysis on how to build good MIMO channel model are described in this study. By exploiting the spatial freedom of wireless channels, MIMO systems have the potential to achieve high bandwidth efficiency, promoting MIMO to be a key technique in the next generation communication systems. As a basic researching field of MIMO technologies, MIMO channel modeling significantly serve to the performance evaluation of space-time encoding algorithms as well as system level calibration and simulation. Having the superiorities of low inner-antenna correlation and small array size, multi-polarization tends to be a promising technique in future MIMO systems. However, polarization characteristics have not yet been modeled well in current MIMO channel models, so establishing meaningful multi-polarized MIMO channel models has become a hot spot in recent channel modeling investigation. In this study, I have mainly made further research on the related theories in the channel models and channel estimation and implementation algorithms on the others’ research work.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available One of the efficient ways to transmit high data rate is by employing a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO transmission. One of the MIMO schemes, known as spatial multiplexing (SM, relies on the linear independence data streams from different transmit antennas to exploit the capacity from the fading channels. Consequently, SM suffers from the effect of spatial correlation which is the limiting factor in achieving the capacity benefit that SM can offer. In an attempt to increase the robustness of the SM transmission in a wide range of correlated channels, the use of dynamic subcarrier allocation (DSA is investigated. The effective signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR metric is used as the performance metric to determine the subcarrier quality which can then be utilised in the allocation. Two novel variants of the subcarrier allocation scheme are proposed. It is shown that the DSA-SINR approach improves the BER performance of SM transmission in highly correlated channels environment.

    2015-03-01

    In this paper, an exact closed-form expression for the Spatial Correlation Function (SCF) is derived for the standardized three-dimensional (3D) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel. This novel SCF is developed for a uniform linear array of antennas with non-isotropic antenna patterns. The proposed method resorts to the spherical harmonic expansion (SHE) of plane waves and the trigonometric expansion of Legendre and associated Legendre polynomials to obtain a closed-form expression for the SCF for arbitrary angular distributions and antenna patterns. The resulting expression depends on the underlying angular distributions and antenna patterns through the Fourier Series (FS) coefficients of power azimuth and elevation spectrums. The novelty of the proposed method lies in the SCF being valid for any 3D propagation environment. Numerical results validate the proposed analytical expression and study the impact of angular spreads on the correlation. The derived SCF will help evaluate the performance of correlated 3D MIMO channels in the future. © 2015 IEEE.

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Conventional Time Reversal (TR technique suffers from performance degradation in time varying Multiple-Input Multiple-Output Ultra-Wideband (MIMO-UWB systems due to outdating Channel State Information (CSI over time progressions. That is, the outdated CSI degrades the TR performance significantly in time varying channels. The correlation property of time correlated channels can improve the TR performance against other traditional TR designs. Based on this property, at first, we propose a robust TR-MIMO-UWB system design for a time-varying channel in which the CSI is updated only at the beginning of each block of data where the CSI is assumed to be known. As the channel varies over time, pre-processor blindly pre-equalizes the channel during the next symbol time by using the correlation property. Then, a novel recursive power allocation strategy is derived over time-correlated time-varying TR-MIMO-UWB channels. We show that the proposed power loading technique, considerably improves the BER performance of TR-MIMO-UWB system in imperfect CSI with robust pre-filter. The proposed algorithms lead to a cost-efficient CSI updating procedure for the TR optimization. Simulation results are provided to confirm the new design performance against traditional method.

    Combined optimization of the source precoder, relay weighting matrices, and destination decoder is proposed in dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiple-relay networks with the source-to-destination link in correlated channels. This broadband cooperative transceiver design is studied based on the minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) criterion under correlated fading channels. The optimization problem belongs neither concave nor convex so that an iterative nonlinear matrix conjugate gradient (MCG) search algorithm is applied to explore local optimal solutions. Simulation results show that the broadband cooperative transceiver joint architecture performs better the non-cooperative transceiver design in terms of the bit-error-rate (BER).

    2008-01-01

    To minimize the overall transmit power while maintaining a constant data rate and target BER,a downlink adaptive resource allocation algorithm with jointing the exclusive manner and the shared manner is proposed for multiuser MIMO-OFDM system in correlated channels. The algorithm allocates all the subcarriers to different users according to their spatial correlations. The users with high spatial correlation are allocated in the same group and the exclusive manner is applied. The shared manner with an improved null broadening method,which improves the performance of co-channel interference (CCI) suppression and decreases the number of transmit antennas required, is applied between the different group users. As the user's direction of departure (DOD) changes very slowly, a looking up table method is used to reduce the computational complexity. The simulation results show that despite the angle spread of DOD, when compared with the exclusive manner, the proposed algorithm improves the spectral efficiency, and when compared with the TDMA-ZF (zero forcing) shared manner, the proposed algorithm decreases the total transmit power by at least 1 dB.

    2015-05-07

    Previous studies have confirmed the adverse impact of fading correlation on the mutual information (MI) of two-dimensional (2D) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. More recently, the trend is to enhance the system performance by exploiting the channel’s degrees of freedom in the elevation, which necessitates the derivation and characterization of three-dimensional (3D) channels in the presence of spatial correlation. In this paper, an exact closed-form expression for the Spatial Correlation Function (SCF) is derived for 3D MIMO channels. This novel SCF is developed for a uniform linear array of antennas with nonisotropic antenna patterns. The proposed method resorts to the spherical harmonic expansion (SHE) of plane waves and the trigonometric expansion of Legendre and associated Legendre polynomials. The resulting expression depends on the underlying arbitrary angular distributions and antenna patterns through the Fourier Series (FS) coefficients of power azimuth and elevation spectrums. The novelty of the proposed method lies in the SCF being valid for any 3D propagation environment. The developed SCF determines the covariance matrices at the transmitter and the receiver that form the Kronecker channel model. In order to quantify the effects of correlation on the system performance, the information-theoretic deterministic equivalents of the MI for the Kronecker model are utilized in both mono-user and multi-user cases. Numerical results validate the proposed analytical expressions and elucidate the dependence of the system performance on azimuth and elevation angular spreads and antenna patterns. Some useful insights into the behaviour of MI as a function of downtilt angles are provided. The derived model will help evaluate the performance of correlated 3D MIMO channels in the future.

    Full Text Available In this paper, three beamforming design are considered for multi user MIMO system. First, transmit beamformers are fixed and the receive (RX beamformers are calculated. Transmit beamformer (TX-BFis projectedas a null space of appropriate channels. It reduces the interference for each user. Then the receiver beamformer is determined which maximize the SNR. This beamforming design provides less computation time. The second case is joint TX and RX beamformer for SNR maximization. In this transmitter and receiver beamformer are calculated using extended alternating optimization (EAO algorithm. The third one is joint transmitter and receiver beamforming for SNR and SINR maximization using EAO algorithm. This algorithm provides better error performance and sum rate performance. All the design cases are simulated by using standard multipath channel model. Our simulation results illustrate that compared to the least square design and zero forcing design, the joint TX and RX beamforming design using EAO algorithm provides faster beamforming and improved error performance and sum rate.

    This article proposes a simple pilot-aided channel estimation method based on correlation in time domain for multiple-input and multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. Pilot symbols in all transmit antennas are generated from different circular shifting of a certain sequence. Through once correlation, the receiver can obtain time-domain pulse responses for channel fading from all transmit antennas to a certain receive antenna, from which channel estimation in frequency domain can be obtained. Beyond 3G time-division duplex (B3G-TDD) uplink is introduced, and the channel estimation method is used in it. Theoretical analysis and simulation are both carried out. Mean square error (MSB) performance shows that the method can exhibit precise estimation. Complexity analysis proves it requires very low complexity. System simulation result shows that it guarantees the performance of B3G-TDD uplink very well.

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper investigates the upper capacity bounds of MIMO systems with correlation and antenna selection techniques in general fading environments. With Antenna Selection techniques, the increased hardware complexity due to multiple antennas and large number of RF chains can be reduced to a substantial amount, retaining the diversity benefits of MIMO systems. The channel Correlation also affects the capacity of MIMO fading channels. Hence, to evaluate the upper bounds of capacity through fading channels, performance of MIMO systems is exemplified under Nakagami-m and Rayleigh fading channels while considering that the channel characteristics are known at a transmitter. The obtained results give an assessment to the better understanding to the effect of antenna selection and correlation on the capacity of MIMO channels, and how they can be used in different fading environments.

    To increase the transmission rate without bandwidth expansion, the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technique has recently been attracting much attention. The MIMO channel capacity in a cellular system is affected by the interference from neighboring co-channel cells. In this paper, we introduce the cellular channel capacity and evaluate its outage capacity, taking into account the frequency-reuse factor, path loss exponent, standard deviation of shadowing loss, and transmission power of a base station (BS). Furthermore, we compare the cellular MIMO downlink channel capacity with those of other multi-antenna transmission techniques such as single-input multiple-output (SIMO) and space-time block coded multiple-input single-output (STBC-MISO). We show that the optimum frequency-reuse factor F that maximizes 10%-outage capacity is 3 and both 50%- and 90%-outage capacities is 1 irrespective of the type of multi-antenna transmission technique, where q%-outage capacity is defined as the channel capacity that gives an outage probability of q%. We also show that the cellular MIMO channel capacity is always higher than those of SIMO and STBC-MISO.

  9. Double Space Time Transmit Diversity OFDM System with Antenna Shuffling in Spatial Correlated Frequency Selective MIMO Channels

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhou, Liang; Shimizu, Masahiko

    In this paper, we study low complexity transceiver for double space time transmit diversity (DSTTD) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system with antenna shuffling. Firstly, we propose a novel antenna shuffling method based on the criterion of minimizing the condition number of channel correlation matrix. The condition number is an indicator about the quality of the channel. By selecting the minimum of condition number which has better channel quality, consequently, a linear detector with respect to this new channel may achieve better performance results. A low complexity variant of the condition number calculation is also proposed, and it is shown that this criterion can be reduced to the minimum mean square error (MMSE) based criterion. Furthermore, the weighted soft decision Viterbi decoding is applied to mitigate noise enhancement inherent to zero forcing (ZF) and MMSE linear receivers and improve error rate performance. Next, we propose an algorithm to reduce the amount of feedback by exploiting the fact that the channel frequency responses across OFDM subcarriers are correlated. In the proposed algorithm, subcarriers are clustered in blocks, which are allocated the same shuffling pattern with the largest number of the shuffling patterns in the cluster. This way, the signaling overhead can be reduced in comparison with each subcarrier based feedback. Extensive simulations show that the proposed techniques for DSTTD-OFDM system outperform other existing techniques under both uncorrelated and highly spatial correlated frequency selective MIMO fading channels.

  12. From Multi-Keyholes to Measure of Correlation and Power Imbalance in MIMO Channels: Outage Capacity Analysis

    CERN Document Server

    Levin, George

    2008-01-01

    An information-theoretic analysis of a multi-keyhole channel, which includes a number of statistically independent keyholes with possibly different correlation matrices, is given. When the number of keyholes or/and the number of Tx/Rx antennas is large, there is an equivalent Rayleigh-fading channel such that the outage capacities of both channels are asymptotically equal. In the case of a large number of antennas and for a broad class of fading distributions, the outage capacity is shown to be asymptotically Gaussian in distribution, and compact, closed-form expressions for the mean and variance are given. Motivated by the asymptotic analysis, a simple, full-ordering scalar measure of spatial correlation and power imbalance in MIMO channels is introduced, which quantifies the negative impact of these two factors on the outage capacity in a simple and well-tractable way. It does not require the eigenvalue decomposition, and has the full-ordering property. The size-asymptotic results are used to prove Telatar'...

    2015-09-01

    In this paper, we consider the problem of compressive sensing (CS) recovery with a prior support and the prior support quality information available. Different from classical works which exploit prior support blindly, we shall propose novel CS recovery algorithms to exploit the prior support adaptively based on the quality information. We analyze the distortion bound of the recovered signal from the proposed algorithm and we show that a better quality prior support can lead to better CS recovery performance. We also show that the proposed algorithm would converge in $\\mathcal{O}\\left(\\log\\mbox{SNR}\\right)$ steps. To tolerate possible model mismatch, we further propose some robustness designs to combat incorrect prior support quality information. Finally, we apply the proposed framework to sparse channel estimation in massive MIMO systems with temporal correlation to further reduce the required pilot training overhead.

    This paper presents analytical expressions for the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel capacity in frequency-flat Rayleigh fading environments. An exact analytical expression is given for the ergodic capacity for single-input multiple-output (SIMO) channels. The analysis shows that the SIMO channel capacity can be approximated by a Gaussian random variable and that the MIMO channel capacity can be approximated as the sum of multiple SIMO capacities. The SIMO channel results are used to derive approximate closed-form expressions for the MIMO channel ergodic capacity and the complementary cumulative distribution function (CCDF) of the MIMO channel capacity (outage capacity). Simulations show that these theoretical results are good approximations for MIMO systems with an arbitrary number of transmit or receive antennas. Moreover, these analytical expressions are relatively simple which makes them very useful for practical computations.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Secret sharing over the fast-fading MIMO wiretap channel is considered. A source and a destination try to share secret information over a fast-fading MIMO channel in the presence of an eavesdropper who also makes channel observations that are different from but correlated to those made by the destination. An interactive, authenticated public channel with unlimited capacity is available to the source and destination for the secret sharing process. This situation is a special case of the "channel model with wiretapper" considered by Ahlswede and Csiszár. An extension of their result to continuous channel alphabets is employed to evaluate the key capacity of the fast-fading MIMO wiretap channel. The effects of spatial dimensionality provided by the use of multiple antennas at the source, destination, and eavesdropper are then investigated.

    2017-02-07

    Elevation beamforming and Full Dimension MIMO (FD-MIMO) are currently active areas of research and standardization in 3GPP LTE-Advanced. FD-MIMO utilizes an active antenna array system (AAS), that provides the ability of adaptive electronic beam control over the elevation dimension, resulting in a better system performance as compared to the conventional 2D MIMO systems. FD-MIMO is more advantageous when amalgamated with massive MIMO systems, in that it exploits the additional degrees of freedom offered by a large number of antennas in the elevation. To facilitate the evaluation of these systems, a large effort in 3D channel modeling is needed. This paper aims at providing a summary of the recent 3GPP activity around 3D channel modeling. The 3GPP proposed approach to model antenna radiation pattern is compared with the ITU approach. A closed-form expression is then worked out for the spatial correlation function (SCF) for channels constituted by individual antenna elements in the array by exploiting results on spherical harmonics and Legendre polynomials. The proposed expression can be used to obtain correlation coefficients for any arbitrary 3D propagation environment. Simulation results corroborate and study the derived spatial correlation expression. The results are directly applicable to the analysis of future 5G 3D massive MIMO systems.

    2008-01-01

    This paper is devoted to the study of the performance of the Linear Minimum Mean-Square Error receiver for (receive) correlated Multiple-Input Multiple-Output systems. By the random matrix theory, it is well-known that the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) at the output of this receiver behaves asymptotically like a Gaussian random variable as the number of receive and transmit antennas converge to +$\\infty$ at the same rate. However, this approximation being inaccurate for the estimation of some performance metrics such as the Bit Error Rate and the outage probability, especially for small system dimensions, Li et al. proposed convincingly to assume that the SNR follows a generalized Gamma distribution which parameters are tuned by computing the first three asymptotic moments of the SNR. In this article, this technique is generalized to (receive) correlated channels, and closed-form expressions for the first three asymptotic moments of the SNR are provided. To obtain these results, a random matrix theory technique...

  20. A Perspective on the MIMO Wiretap Channel

    KAUST Repository

    Oggier, Frederique

    2015-10-01

    A wiretap channel is a communication channel between a transmitter Alice and a legitimate receiver Bob, in the presence of an eavesdropper Eve. The goal of communication is to achieve reliability between Alice and Bob, but also confidentiality despite Eve’s presence. Wiretap channels are declined in all kinds of flavors, depending on the underlying channels used by the three players: discrete memoryless channels, additive Gaussian noise channels, or fading channels, to name a few. In this survey, we focus on the case where the three players use multiple-antenna channels with Gaussian noise to communicate. After summarizing known results for multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) channels, both in terms of achievable reliable data rate (capacity) and code design, we introduce the MIMO wiretap channel. We then state the MIMO wiretap capacity, summarize the idea of the proof(s) behind this result, and comment on the insights given by the proofs on the physical meaning of the secrecy capacity. We finally discuss design criteria for MIMO wiretap codes.

  1. Modified Spatial Channel Model for MIMO Wireless Systems

    Pekka Kyösti

    2007-12-01

    Full Text Available The third generation partnership Project's (3GPP spatial channel model (SCM is a stochastic channel model for MIMO systems. Due to fixed subpath power levels and angular directions, the SCM model does not show the degree of variation which is encountered in real channels. In this paper, we propose a modified SCM model which has random subpath powers and directions and still produces Laplace shape angular power spectrum. Simulation results on outage MIMO capacity with basic and modified SCM models show that the modified SCM model gives constantly smaller capacity values. Accordingly, it seems that the basic SCM gives too small correlation between MIMO antennas. Moreover, the variance in capacity values is larger using the proposed SCM model. Simulation results were supported by the outage capacity results from a measurement campaign conducted in the city centre of Oulu, Finland.

    In this paper the performance limits and design principles of rateless codes over fading channels are studied. The diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) is used to analyze the system performance for all possible transmission rates. It is revealed from the analysis that the design of such rateless codes follows the design principle of approximately universal codes for parallel multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, in which each sub-channel is a MIMO channel. More specifically, it is shown that for a single-input single-output (SISO) channel, the previously developed permutation codes of unit length for parallel channels having rate LR can be transformed directly into rateless codes of length L having multiple rate levels (R, 2R, . . ., LR), to achieve the DMT performance limit.

    Full Text Available This paper reports investigations on the effect of antenna mutual coupling on performance of training-based Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO channel estimation. The influence of mutual coupling is assessed for two training-based channel estimation methods, Scaled Least Square (SLS and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE. It is shown that the accuracy of MIMO channel estimation is governed by the sum of eigenvalues of channel correlation matrix which in turn is influenced by the mutual coupling in transmitting and receiving array antennas. A water-filling-based procedure is proposed to optimize the training signal transmission to minimize the MIMO channel estimation errors.

    This article investigates transmitter design in Rayleigh fading multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channels with spatial correlation when there are channel uncertainties caused by a combined effect of channel estimation error and limited feedback. To overcome the high computational complexity of the optimal transmit power allocation, a simple and suboptimal allocation is proposed by exploiting the transmission constraint and differentiating a bound based on Jensen inequality on the channel capacity. The simulation results show that the mutual information corresponding to the proposed power allocation closely approaches the channel capacity corresponding to the optimal one and meanwhile the computational complexity is greatly reduced.

    Full Text Available To improve the achievable rate for the MIMO channels, we propose a hybrid transmission (HT scheme that mixes half-duplex decode-and-forward cooperative relaying transmission (DFRH)with direct transmission (DT. In the HT scheme, the source message is divided into two parts: one is transmitted by DFRH scheme and another is transmitted by DT scheme. Precoding and decoding are considered to convert the original MIMO relay channel into several parallel subchannels so that resource allocation can be easily performed. We focus on the spatial subchannel and power allocation problem. The objective of this problem is to maximize the total achievable rate under the constraints of joint total transmission power. Simulation results show that significant capacity gain can be achieved by the HT scheme compared to the DT scheme and the pure DFRH scheme.

    Simoens Frederik

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper concerns channel tracking in a multiantenna context for correlated flat-fading channels obeying a Gauss-Markov model. It is known that data-aided tracking of fast-fading channels requires a lot of pilot symbols in order to achieve sufficient accuracy, and hence decreases the spectral efficiency. To overcome this problem, we design a code-aided estimation scheme which exploits information from both the pilot symbols and the unknown coded data symbols. The algorithm is derived based on a factor graph representation of the system and application of the sum-product algorithm. The sum-product algorithm reveals how soft information from the decoder should be exploited for the purpose of estimation and how the information bits can be detected. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of our approach.

    This paper investigates pilot-symbol-aided channel estimation/prediction for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems in fast fading environments. We first derive the design criteria of the optimal pilot blocks for energy, power and bandwidth-limited systems, respectively. Then two low-complexity channel estimation schemes are provided. Finally, we present a robust Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) channel estimator based on channel time correlation. Simulation shows the proposed MMSE estimator is considerably insensitive to channel statistics and significantly outperforms the traditional estimators with a low additional complexity in fast fading environments. By simply adjusting some parameters, the MMSE estimator can work as an estimator and a predictor simultaneously.

    CERN Document Server

    Huang, Kaibin

    2010-01-01

    Multi-antenna precoding effectively mitigates the interference in wireless networks. However, the precoding efficiency can be significantly degraded by the overhead due to the required feedback of channel state information (CSI). This paper addresses such an issue by proposing a systematic method of designing precoders for the two-user multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) interference channels based on finite-rate CSI feedback from receivers to their interferers, called cooperative feedback. Specifically, each precoder is decomposed into inner and outer precoders for nulling interference and improving the data link array gain, respectively. The inner precoders are further designed to suppress residual interference resulting from finite-rate cooperative feedback. To regulate residual interference due to precoder quantization, additional scalar cooperative feedback signals are designed to control transmitters' power using different criteria including applying interference margins, maximizing sum throughput, an...

    Massive MIMO systems have got extraordinary spectral efficiency using a large number of base station antennas, but it is in the challenge of pilot contamination using the aligned pilots.To address this issue, a selective transmission is proposed using time-shifted pilots with cell grouping, where the strong interfering users in downlink transmission cells are temporally stopped during the pilots transmission in uplink cells.Based on the spatial characteristics of physical channel models, the strong interfering users are selected to minimize the inter-cell interference and the cell grouping is designed to have less temporally stopped users within a smaller area.Furthermore, a Kalman estima-tor is proposed to reduce the unexpected effect of residual interferences in channel estimation, which exploits both the spatial-time correlation of channels and the share of the interference information. The numerical results show that our scheme significantly improves the channel estimation accuracy and the data rates.

    2008-01-01

    We present two interference alignment techniques such that an opportunistic point-to-point multiple input multiple output (MIMO) link can reuse, without generating any additional interference, the same frequency band of a similar pre-existing primary link. In this scenario, we exploit the fact that under power constraints, although each radio maximizes independently its rate by water-filling on their channel transfer matrix singular values, frequently, not all of them are used. Therefore, by aligning the interference of the opportunistic radio it is possible to transmit at a significant rate while insuring zero-interference on the pre-existing link. We propose a linear pre-coder for a perfect interference alignment and a power allocation scheme which maximizes the individual data rate of the secondary link. Our numerical results show that significant data rates are achieved even for a reduced number of antennas.

    2012-01-01

    Optimizing the energy efficiency (EE) for the MIMO broadcasting channels (BC) is addressed in this paper, taking into account the transmit independent power which is related to the active transmit antenna number. A new optimization framework is proposed, in which transmit covariance optimization under fixed active transmit antenna sets is first performed and active transmit antenna selection (ATAS) is utilized then. To optimize the EE under a fixed transmit antenna set, we propose an energy efficient iterative waterfilling scheme according to the block-coordinate ascent algorithm, through transforming the problem into a concave fractional optimization via uplink-downlink duality. It is proved that the proposed scheme converges to the global optimality. After that, ATAS is employed to determine the active transmit antenna set and to turn off the rest inactive antennas. ATAS can balance the active transmit antenna number related EE gain with higher capacity gain and the EE loss with more transmit independent po...

    A novel deterministic model for downlink Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel with nonisotropic scattering around Mobile station (MS) is presented. For both Space-time codes (STC) scenario and Downlink beam-forming (DBF) scenario, statistical fading characteristics, including level-crossing rate, average duration of fades, and envelope cross-correlation are investigated in frequency-selective fast fading channels. The impact of non-isotropic scattering on capacity of MIMO channel is also studied. Numerical results show that loss of ergodic capacity caused by non-isotropic scattering almost reach 1bit/Hz/s for a 2×2 MIMO channel and maximum achievable capacity will be degraded mainly by transmit correlation rather than non-isotropic scattering.

  11. Low-SNR Capacity of MIMO Optical Intensity Channels

    KAUST Repository

    Chaaban, Anas

    2017-09-18

    The capacity of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) optical intensity channel is studied, under both average and peak intensity constraints. We focus on low SNR, which can be modeled as the scenario where both constraints proportionally vanish, or where the peak constraint is held constant while the average constraint vanishes. A capacity upper bound is derived, and is shown to be tight at low SNR under both scenarios. The capacity achieving input distribution at low SNR is shown to be a maximally-correlated vector-binary input distribution. Consequently, the low-SNR capacity of the channel is characterized. As a byproduct, it is shown that for a channel with peak intensity constraints only, or with peak intensity constraints and individual (per aperture) average intensity constraints, a simple scheme composed of coded on-off keying, spatial repetition, and maximum-ratio combining is optimal at low SNR.

    2010-01-01

    In the past few years considerable attention has been given to the design of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Eigenmode Transmission Systems (EMTS). This paper presents an in-depth analysis of a new MIMO eigenmode transmission strategy. The non-linear decomposition technique called Geometric Mean Decomposition (GMD) is employed for the formation of eigenmodes over MIMO flatfading channel. Exploiting GMD technique, identical, parallel and independent transmission pipes are created for data transmission at higher rate. The system based on such decomposition technique is referred to as MIMO Identical Eigenmode Transmission System (IETS). The comparative analysis of the MIMO transceiver design exploiting nonlinear and linear decomposition techniques for variable constellation is presented in this paper. The new transmission strategy is tested in combination with the Vertical Bell Labs Layered Space Time (V-BLAST) decoding scheme using different number of antennas on both sides of the communication link.

    2011-01-01

    The conventional analytical channel models for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless radio channels are array dependent. In this paper, we present several array independent MIMO channel models that inherit the essence of analytical models. The key idea is to decompose the physical scattering channel into two parts using the manifold decomposition technique: one is the wavefield independent sampling matrices depending on the antenna arrays only; the other is the array independent physical channel that can be individually modeled in an analytical manner. Based on the framework, we firstly extend the conventional virtual channel representation (VCR), which is restricted to uniform linear arrays (ULAs) so far, to a general version applicable to arbitrary array configurations. Then, we present two array independent stochastic MIMO channel models based on the proposed new VCR as well as the Weichselberger model. These two models are good at angular power spectrum (APS) estimation and capacity prediction, r...

    Full Text Available There is an increasing demand for high data transmission rates with the evolution of the very large scale integration (VLSI technology. The multiple input multiple output-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM systems are used to fulfill these requirements because of their unique properties such as high spectral efficiency, high data rate and resistance towards multipath propagation. MIMO-OFDM systems are finding their applications in the modern wireless communication systems like IEEE 802.11n, 4G and LTE. They also offer reliable communication with the increased coverage area. The bottleneck to the MIMO-OFDM systems is the estimation of the channel state information (CSI. This can be estimated with the help of any one of the Training Based, Semiblind and Blind Channel estimation algorithms. This paper presents various channel estimation algorithms, optimization techniques and their effective utilization in MIMO-OFDM for modern wireless LTE systems.

    Full Text Available A training-based MIMO channel estimation scheme is presented to operate in severe frequency and time selective fading channels. Besides the new pilot bits designed from the ‘Paley-Hadamard’ matrix to exploit its orthogonal and ‘Toeplitz-like’ structures and minimising its pilot length, a novel pilot expansion technique is proposed to estimate the length of the channel impulse response, by flexibly extending its pilot length as required in order to capture the number of multipath existed within the MIMO channel. The pilot expansion can also help to deduce the initial channel variation and its Doppler rate which can be subsequently applied for MIMO channel tracking using decision feedback Kalman filter during the data payload.

    Yuehai Zhou; Xiuling Cao; Feng Tong

    2015-01-01

    Underwater acoustic channels pose a great difficulty for the development of high speed communication due to highly limited band-width as well as hostile multipath interference. Enlightened by rapid progress of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technologies in wireless communication scenarios, MIMO systems offer a potential solution by enabling multiple spatially parallel communication channels to improve communication performance as well as capacity. For MIMO acoustic communications, deep sea channels offer substantial spatial diversity among multiple channels that can be exploited to address simultaneous multipath and co-channel interference. At the same time, there are increasing requirements for high speed underwater communication in very shallow water area (for example, a depth less than 10 m). In this paper, a space-time multichannel adaptive receiver consisting of multiple decision feedback equalizers (DFE) is adopted as the receiver for a very shallow water MIMO acoustic communication system. The performance of multichannel DFE receivers with relatively small number of receiving elements are analyzed and compared with that of the multichannel time reversal receiver to evaluate the impact of limited spatial diversity on multi-channel equalization and time reversal processing. The results of sea trials in a very shallow water channel are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of very shallow water MIMO acoustic communication.

    2005-06-01

    A finite impulse response (FIR) precoder for the multi-input multi-output (MIMO) channel is proposed to eliminate the intersymbol interference (ISI) effect in this research. Two precoders are designed to maximize the signal to noise ratio (SNR) and the signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR), respectively. At the receiver end, a finite-length MIMO decision feedback equalizer is adopted to minimize the mean squared error (MSE) of the overall system. It is observed that the SINR-maximizing precoder performs the best among all precoders under our examination. For the 2x2 MIMO channel, the simple one-tap SNR-maximizing precoder can perform almost as well. For a heavily dispersive channel, the SINR-maximizing precoder still performs well even its length is much smaller than the channel length.

    The concepts of MIMO MC-CDMA are not new but the new technologies to improve their functioning are an emerging area of research. In general, most mobile communication systems transmit bits of information in the radio space to the receiver. The radio channels in mobile radio systems are usually multipath fading channels, which cause inter-symbol interference (ISI) in the received signal. To remove ISI from the signal, there is a need of strong equalizer. In this thesis we have focused on simulating the MIMO MC-CDMA systems in MATLAB and designed the channel estimation for them.

    2008-01-01

    New training sequences and frame structure are proposed to estimate time-varying channel for multiple-input multiple-output and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. The training sequences are modulatable orthogonal polyphase sequences, which have both good autocorrelations and cross-correlations. The channel impulse response (CIR) can be obtained by measuring the correlation between the received training sequence and the locally generated training sequence. The training sequences are used as guard interval instead of cyclic prefix, which not only improve the transmission efficiency but also enable the channel estimator to track time-varying channel. The simulation results show that the proposed method has about 2dB SNR gain over conventional methods in fast time-varying channel.

  7. Channel Acquisition for Massive MIMO-OFDM With Adjustable Phase Shift Pilots

    Science.gov (United States)

    You, Li; Gao, Xiqi; Swindlehurst, A. Lee; Zhong, Wen

    2016-03-01

    We propose adjustable phase shift pilots (APSPs) for channel acquisition in wideband massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems employing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) to reduce the pilot overhead. Based on a physically motivated channel model, we first establish a relationship between channel space-frequency correlations and the channel power angle-delay spectrum in the massive antenna array regime, which reveals the channel sparsity in massive MIMO-OFDM. With this channel model, we then investigate channel acquisition, including channel estimation and channel prediction, for massive MIMO-OFDM with APSPs. We show that channel acquisition performance in terms of sum mean square error can be minimized if the user terminals' channel power distributions in the angle-delay domain can be made non-overlapping with proper phase shift scheduling. A simplified pilot phase shift scheduling algorithm is developed based on this optimal channel acquisition condition. The performance of APSPs is investigated for both one symbol and multiple symbol data models. Simulations demonstrate that the proposed APSP approach can provide substantial performance gains in terms of achievable spectral efficiency over the conventional phase shift orthogonal pilot approach in typical mobility scenarios.

    For the MIMO channels with space correlation and time correlation, a novel joint space-time Huffman limited feedback precoding scheme was proposed which improves the system performance and reduces the amount of feedback. Based on space correlation, the precoding structure under zero-forcing (ZF) criterion was derived and the rotating quan-tization codebook was designed which reduces the effect of space correlation on system performance. In addition, in view of time correlation of channels, the scheme reduces the feedback data of channel state information (CSI) in the slow fad-ing channel by using neighborhood-based limited feedback. Due to different probabilities of codewords in the neighbor-hood, Huffman coding was adopted to further reduce the amount of feedback.%针对空时相关的 MIMO 信道,提出了一种新颖的 Huffman 空时联合有限反馈预编码方法,提高了系统性能,并减少了反馈量。从信道的空间相关性出发,推导了迫零准则下预编码的构成,从而设计了一种旋转量化码本,减小了空间相关性对系统性能的影响。另外,针对信道的时间相关性,利用基于邻域的有限反馈来降低慢衰落信道的反馈量。同时,由于领域内各码字被选中的概率不同,可以利用Huffman编码进一步减少反馈量。

    2011-01-01

    We consider the problem of estimating sparse communication channels in the MIMO context. In small to medium bandwidth communications, as in the current standards for OFDM and CDMA communication systems (with bandwidth up to 20 MHz), such channels are individually sparse and at the same time share a common support set. Since the underlying physical channels are inherently continuous-time, we propose a parametric sparse estimation technique based on finite rate of innovation (FRI) principles. Parametric estimation is especially relevant to MIMO communications as it allows for a robust estimation and concise description of the channels. The core of the algorithm is a generalization of conventional spectral estimation methods to multiple input signals with common support. We show the application of our technique for channel estimation in OFDM (uniformly/contiguous DFT pilots) and CDMA downlink (Walsh-Hadamard coded schemes). In the presence of additive white Gaussian noise, theoretical lower bounds on the estimat...

    Optimizing energy efficiency (EE) for the MIMO broadcasting channels (BC) is considered in this paper, where a practical power model is taken into account. Although the EE of the MIMO BC is non-concave, we reformulate it as a quasiconcave function based on the uplink-downlink duality. After that, an energy efficient iterative waterfilling scheme is proposed based on the block-coordinate ascent algorithm to obtain the optimal transmission policy efficiently, and the solution is proved to be convergent. Through simulations, we validate the efficiency of the proposed scheme and discuss the system parameters' effect on the EE.

  15. Energy-Efficient Channel Estimation in MIMO Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The emergence of MIMO communications systems as practical high-data-rate wireless communications systems has created several technical challenges to be met. On the one hand, there is potential for enhancing system performance in terms of capacity and diversity. On the other hand, the presence of multiple transceivers at both ends has created additional cost in terms of hardware and energy consumption. For coherent detection as well as to do optimization such as water filling and beamforming, it is essential that the MIMO channel is known. However, due to the presence of multiple transceivers at both the transmitter and receiver, the channel estimation problem is more complicated and costly compared to a SISO system. Several solutions have been proposed to minimize the computational cost, and hence the energy spent in channel estimation of MIMO systems. We present a novel method of minimizing the overall energy consumption. Unlike existing methods, we consider the energy spent during the channel estimation phase which includes transmission of training symbols, storage of those symbols at the receiver, and also channel estimation at the receiver. We develop a model that is independent of the hardware or software used for channel estimation, and use a divide-and-conquer strategy to minimize the overall energy consumption.

    Full Text Available The increasing interest in wireless transmission of highest data rates for multimedia applications (e.g. HDTV demands the use of communication systems as e.g. described in the IEEE 802.11n draft specification for WLAN including spatial multiplexing or transmit diversity to achieve a constant high data rate and a small outage probability. In a wireless communications system the transmission of parallel data stream leads to multiple input/multiple output (MIMO systems, whose key parameters heavily depend on the properties of the mobile channel. Assuming an uncorrelated channel matrix the correlation between the multiplexed data streams is caused by the coupling of the antennas, so that the radiation element becomes an even more important part of the system. Previous work in this research area (Klemp and Eul, 2006 has shown that planar log.-per four arm antennas are promising candidates for MIMO applications providing two nearly decorrelated radiators, which cover a wide frequency range including both WLAN bands at 2.4 GHz and 5.4 GHz. Up to now the MIMO performance of this antenna is mainly analyzed by simulations. In this contribution measured channel matrices in a real office environment are studied in terms of the antenna's MIMO performance such as outage probability. The obtained results recorded by using a commercial platform are compared to the simulated ones.

    In multiple-antenna communications, as bandwidth and modulation order increase, system components must work with demanding tolerances. In particular, high resolution and high sampling rate analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are often prohibitively challenging to design. Therefore ADCs for such applications should be low-resolution. This paper provides new insights into the problem of optimal signal detection based on quantized received signals for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. It capitalizes on previous works which extensively analyzed the unquantized linear vector channel using graphical inference methods. In particular, a "loopy" belief propagation-like (BP) MIMO detection algorithm, operating on quantized data with low complexity, is proposed. In addition, we study the impact of finite receiver resolution in fading channels in the large-system limit by means of a state evolution analysis of the BP algorithm, which refers to the limit where the number of transmit and receive antennas go t...

    In this paper, an adaptive channel estimation for MIMO OFDM is proposed. A set of pilot tones first are placed in each OFDM block, then the channel frequency response of these pilot tones are adaptively estimated by reeursive least squares (RLS) directly in frequency domain not in time domain. Then after the estimation of the channel frequency response of pilot tones, to obtain the channel frequency response of data tones, a new interpolation method based on DFT different from traditional linear interpolation method according to adjacent pilot tones is proposed. Simulation results show good performance of the technique.

    This letter addresses the problem of robust transceiver design for the multiuser multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) downlink where the channel state information at the base station (BS) is imperfect. A stochastic approach which minimizes the expectation of the total mean square error (MSE) of the downlink conditioned on the channel estimates under a total transmit power constraint is adopted. The iterative algorithm reported in [2] is improved to handle the proposed robust optimization problem. Simulation results show that our proposed robust scheme effectively reduces the performance loss due to channel uncertainties and outperforms existing methods, especially when the channel errors of the users are different.

    In multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communication systems, eigenvalues of channel correlation matrices play an essential role for the performance analysis, and particularly the investigation about their behavior under time-variant environment ruled by a certain statistics is an important problem. This paper first gives the theoretical expressions for the marginal distributions of all the ordered eigenvalues of MIMO correlation matrices under i. i. d. (independent and identically distributed) Rayleigh fading environment. Then, an approximation method of those marginal distributions is presented: We show that the theory of SIMO space diversity using maximal ratio combining (MRC) is applicable to the approximation of statistical distributions of all eigenvalues in MIMO systems with the same number of diversity branches. The derived approximation has a monomial form suitable for the calculation of various performance measures utilized in MIMO systems. Through computer simulations, the effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated.

Furthermore, the maximum performance of the system in the high power regime as well as the set of all feasible quality-of-service requirements is analyzed. First, a fundamental duality is derived that holds between the MIMO broadcast channel and virtual MIMO multiple access channel. This duality construct allows for the efficient solution of problems originally posed in the broadcast channel in the dual domain where a possibly hidden convexity can often be revealed. On the basis of the established duality result, the gradient-projection algorithm is introduced as a tool to solve constrained optimization problems to global optimality under certain conditions. The gradient-projection tool is then applied to solving the weighted sum rate maximization problem which is a central optimization that arises in any network u...

    This paper addresses the problem of estimating sparse channels in massive MIMO-OFDM systems. Most wireless channels are sparse in nature with large delay spread. In addition, these channels as observed by multiple antennas in a neighborhood have approximately common support. The sparsity and common support properties are attractive when it comes to the efficient estimation of large number of channels in massive MIMO systems. Moreover, to avoid pilot contamination and to achieve better spectral efficiency, it is important to use a small number of pilots. We present a novel channel estimation approach which utilizes the sparsity and common support properties to estimate sparse channels and require a small number of pilots. Two algorithms based on this approach have been developed which perform Bayesian estimates of sparse channels even when the prior is non-Gaussian or unknown. Neighboring antennas share among each other their beliefs about the locations of active channel taps to perform estimation. The coordinated approach improves channel estimates and also reduces the required number of pilots. Further improvement is achieved by the data-aided version of the algorithm. Extensive simulation results are provided to demonstrate the performance of the proposed algorithms.

    2017-06-20

    This work considers the downlink of a multicell massive MIMO system in which L base stations (BSs) of N antennas each communicate with K single-antenna user equipments randomly positioned in the coverage area. Within this setting, we are interested in evaluating the sum rate of the system when MRT and RZF are employed under the assumption that each intracell link forms a MIMO Rician uncorrelated fading channel. The analysis is conducted assuming that N and K grow large with a non-trivial ratio N/K under the assumption that the data transmission in each cell is affected by channel estimation errors, pilot contamination, and an arbitrary large scale attenuation. Numerical results are used to validate the asymptotic analysis in the finite system regime and to evaluate the network performance under different settings. The asymptotic results are also instrumental to get insights into the interplay among system parameters.

    We study the compound multi-input multi-output (MIMO) broadcast channel with confidential messages (BCC), where one transmitter sends a common message to two receivers and two confidential messages respectively to each receiver. The channel state may take one of a finite set of states, and the transmitter knows the state set but does not know the realization of the state. We study achievable rates with perfect secrecy in the high SNR regime by characterizing an achievable secrecy degree of freedom (s.d.o.f.) region for two models, the Gaussian MIMO-BCC and the ergodic fading multi-input single-output (MISO)-BCC without a common message. We show that by exploiting an additional temporal dimension due to state variation in the ergodic fading model, the achievable s.d.o.f. region can be significantly improved compared to the Gaussian model with a constant state, although at the price of a larger delay.

  8. Distributed Channel Estimation and Pilot Contamination Analysis for Massive MIMO-OFDM Systems

    KAUST Repository

    2016-07-22

    By virtue of large antenna arrays, massive MIMO systems have a potential to yield higher spectral and energy efficiency in comparison with the conventional MIMO systems. This paper addresses uplink channel estimation in massive MIMO-OFDM systems with frequency selective channels. We propose an efficient distributed minimum mean square error (MMSE) algorithm that can achieve near optimal channel estimates at low complexity by exploiting the strong spatial correlation among antenna array elements. The proposed method involves solving a reduced dimensional MMSE problem at each antenna followed by a repetitive sharing of information through collaboration among neighboring array elements. To further enhance the channel estimates and/or reduce the number of reserved pilot tones, we propose a data-aided estimation technique that relies on finding a set of most reliable data carriers. Furthermore, we use stochastic geometry to quantify the pilot contamination, and in turn use this information to analyze the effect of pilot contamination on channel MSE. The simulation results validate our analysis and show near optimal performance of the proposed estimation algorithms.

    This paper considers the so-called multiple-input-multiple-output interference channel (MIMO-IC) which has relevance in applications such as multi-cell coordination in cellular networks as well as spectrum sharing in cognitive radio networks among others. We address the design of precoding (i.e. beamforming) vectors at each sender with the aim of striking a compromise between beamforming gain at the intended receiver (Egoism) and the mitigation of interference created towards other receivers (Altruism). Combining egoistic and altruistic beamforming has been shown previously to be instrumental to optimizing the rates in a multiple-input-single-output interference channel MISO-IC (i.e. where receivers have no interference canceling capability) [5], [7]. Here we explore these game-theoretic concepts in the more general context of MIMO channels and using the framework of Bayesian games [17], allowing us to derive (semi-)distributed precoding techniques. We draw parallels with existing work on the MIMO-IC, includi...

    A simplified three-dimension (3D) fading channel model deployed in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) beamforming system is explored in this article. Both angle of arrival (AoA) and angle of departure (AoD) which impact the overall system performance are examined. The numerical results are given for validating the accuracy of the theoretical derived formulas. Furthermore, the performances of the model with different number of transmitters and receivers are studied and compared. The increment in AoA parameters definitely generates the impact of the system performance when the consideration of simplified 3D channels.

    We consider frequency selective channel estimation in the uplink of massive MIMO-OFDM systems, where our major concern is complexity. A low complexity distributed LMMSE algorithm is proposed that attains near optimal channel impulse response (CIR) estimates from noisy observations at receive antenna array. In proposed method, every antenna estimates the CIRs of its neighborhood followed by recursive sharing of estimates with immediate neighbors. At each step, every antenna calculates the weighted average of shared estimates which converges to near optimal LMMSE solution. The simulation results validate the near optimal performance of proposed algorithm in terms of mean square error (MSE). © 2015 EURASIP.

    在FDD模式多用户MIMO(Multi-input Multi-output)系统下行链路中,由于信道估计、反馈信道等存在误差,使得发送端获取理想信道状态信息(CSI,channel state information)十分困难.针对获得非理想csI的多用户MIMO系统,考虑在基站和各用户的天线分别具有相关性并引入视距分量的信道条件下,提出了一种新的基于块对角化的MMSE准则收发联合设计算法.该算法首先通过块对角化消除用户间的共信道干扰,然后针对存在信道估计误差的用户信道依据MMSE准则分别迭代求解每个用户预编码和解码矩阵.论文设计出一种基于训练序列的信道估计误差算法,并获得等效信道模型,使得收发端获得的信道状态信息更有实际意义.本文假设反馈信道理想,发射端可以完整得到信道估计矩阵.在MMSE准则下,推导获得了Lagrange乘子的解析解,避免了求解非线性方程的复杂过程,显著降低了计算复杂度.和已有算法相比,该算法不仅可以获得良好的误码性能还可以对各用户进行独立优化,处理更加灵活.仿真分析了视距分量、信道相关性以及信道估计误差对算法性能的影响.仿真结果表明,该算法误码性能良好,算法收敛快,并且对信道估计误差带来的影响有较好的抑制作用.%Multi-user MIMO ( multi-input multi-output) system has been studied in number of papers in recent years. In this paper,a novel multi-user transceiver algorithm is proposed for the system. In the multi-user MIMO system under FDD mode for the downlink, because of the channel estimation error and feedback channel errer, it is difficult to obtain the perfect channel state information ( CSI) at transmitter. With the consideration of both the line-of-sight( LOS) component and the correlation at both the transmitter and users , a minimum sum MSE criterion MIMO transceiver design algorithm based on block diagonalization is proposed.

    2007-01-01

    The large majority of commercially available multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radio channel measurement devices (sounders) is based on time-division multiplexed switching (TDMS) of a single transmit/receive radio-frequency chain into the elements of a transmit/receive antenna array. While being cost-effective, such a solution can cause significant measurement errors due to phase noise and frequency offset in the local oscillators. In this paper, we systematically analyze the resulting errors and show that, in practice, overestimation of channel capacity by several hundred percent can occur. Overestimation is caused by phase noise (and to a lesser extent frequency offset) leading to an increase of the MIMO channel rank. Our analysis furthermore reveals that the impact of phase errors is, in general, most pronounced if the physical channel has low rank (typical for line-of-sight or poor scattering scenarios). The extreme case of a rank-1 physical channel is analyzed in detail. Finally, we present measureme...

    2015-12-01

    This paper proposes a spatially common sparsity based adaptive channel estimation and feedback scheme for frequency division duplex based massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems, which adapts training overhead and pilot design to reliably estimate and feed back the downlink channel state information (CSI) with significantly reduced overhead. Specifically, a non-orthogonal downlink pilot design is first proposed, which is very different from standard orthogonal pilots. By exploiting the spatially common sparsity of massive MIMO channels, a compressive sensing (CS) based adaptive CSI acquisition scheme is proposed, where the consumed time slot overhead only adaptively depends on the sparsity level of the channels. Additionally, a distributed sparsity adaptive matching pursuit algorithm is proposed to jointly estimate the channels of multiple subcarriers. Furthermore, by exploiting the temporal channel correlation, a closed-loop channel tracking scheme is provided, which adaptively designs the non-orthogonal pilot according to the previous channel estimation to achieve an enhanced CSI acquisition. Finally, we generalize the results of the multiple-measurement-vectors case in CS and derive the Cramer-Rao lower bound of the proposed scheme, which enlightens us to design the non-orthogonal pilot signals for the improved performance. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme outperforms its counterparts, and it is capable of approaching the performance bound.

    Introducing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay channel could offer significant capacity gain.And it is of great importance to develop effective power allocation strategies to achieve power efficiency and improve channel capacity in amplify-and-forward relay system.This article investigates a two-hop MIMO relay system with multiple antennas in relay node (RN) and receiver (RX).Maximizing capacity with antenna selection (MCAS) and maximizing capacity with eigen-decomposition (MCED) schemes are proposed to efficiently allocate power among antennas in RN under first and second hop limited scenarios.The analysis and simulation results show that both MCED and MCAS can improve the channel capacity compared with uniform power allocation (UPA) scheme in most of the studied areas.The MCAS bears comparison with MCED with an acceptable capacity loss, but lowers the complexity by saving channel state information (CSI) feedback to the transmitter (TX).Moreover, when the RN is close to RX, the performance of UPA is also close to the upper bound as the performance of first hop is limited.

    2011-01-01

    In this paper, we consider a robust lattice alignment design for K-user quasi-static MIMO interference channels with imperfect channel knowledge. With random Gaussian inputs, the conventional interference alignment (IA) method has the feasibility problem when the channel is quasi-static. On the other hand, structured lattices can create structured interference as opposed to the random interference caused by random Gaussian symbols. The structured interference space can be exploited to transmit the desired signals over the gaps. However, the existing alignment methods on the lattice codes for quasi-static channels either require infinite SNR or symmetric interference channel coefficients. Furthermore, perfect channel state information (CSI) is required for these alignment methods, which is difficult to achieve in practice. In this paper, we propose a robust lattice alignment method for quasi-static MIMO interference channels with imperfect CSI at all SNR regimes, and a two-stage decoding algorithm to decode th...

    2015-03-01

    Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems of current LTE releases are capable of adaptation in the azimuth only. More recently, the trend is to enhance the system performance by exploiting the channel\\'s degrees of freedom in the elevation through the dynamic adaptation of the vertical antenna beam pattern. This necessitates the derivation and characterization of three-dimensional (3D) channels. Over the years, channel models have evolved to address the challenges of wireless communication technologies. In parallel to theoretical studies on channel modeling, many standardized channel models like COST-based models, 3GPP SCM, WINNER, ITU have emerged that act as references for industries and telecommunication companies to assess system-level and link-level performances of advanced signal processing techniques over real-like channels. Given the existing channels are only two dimensional (2D) in nature; a large effort in channel modeling is needed to study the impact of the channel component in the elevation direction. The first part of this work sheds light on the current 3GPP activity around 3D channel modeling and beamforming, an aspect that to our knowledge has not been extensively covered by a research publication. The standardized MIMO channel model is presented, that incorporates both the propagation effects of the environment and the radio effects of the antennas. In order to facilitate future studies on the use of 3D beamforming, the main features of the proposed 3D channel model are discussed. A brief overview of the future 3GPP 3D channel model being outlined for the next generation of wireless networks is also provided. In the subsequent part of this work, we present an information-theoretic channel model for MIMO systems that supports the elevation dimension. The model is based on the principle of maximum entropy, which enables us to determine the distribution of the channel matrix consistent with the prior information on the angles of departure and

    Yang, Sheng

    2007-01-01

    We consider slow fading relay channels with a single multi-antenna source-destination terminal pair. The source signal arrives at the destination via N hops through N-1 layers of relays. We analyze the diversity of such channels with fixed network size at high SNR. In the clustered case where the relays within the same layer can have full cooperation, the cooperative decode-and-forward (DF) scheme is shown to be optimal in terms of the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT). The upper bound on the DMT, the cut-set bound, is attained. In the non-clustered case, we show that the naive amplify-and-forward (AF) scheme has the maximum multiplexing gain of the channel but is suboptimal in diversity, as compared to the cut-set bound. To improve the diversity, space-time relay processing is introduced through the parallel partition of the multihop channel. The idea is to let the source signal go through K different "AF paths" in the multihop channel. This parallel AF scheme creates a parallel channel in the time domai...

    Full Text Available This paper proposes several configurations for multiple base stations in indoor MIMO systems and compares their performance. The results are based on channel measurements realized with a MIMO testbed. The receiver was moved along several routes and floors on an office building. Both outdoor and indoor locations are considered for the transmitters or base stations, which allow the analysis of not only indoor but also outdoor-to-indoor environment. The use of 2 base stations with different system level combinations of the two is analyzed. We show that the configuration with base station selection provides almost as good performance as a full water-filling scheme when the 2 base stations are placed at different locations. Also the spatial correlation properties for the different configurations are analyzed and the importance of considering path loss when evaluating capacity is highlighted.

    We consider a bidirectional time division duplex (TDD) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication system with time-varying channel and additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). A blind bidirectional channel tracking algorithm, based on the projection approximation subspace tracking (PAST) algorithm, is applied in both terminals. The resulting singular value decomposition (SVD) of the channel matrix is then used to approximately diagonalize the channel. The proposed method is applied to an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing-(OFDM-)MIMO setting with a typical indoor time-domain reflection model. The computational cost of the proposed algorithm, compared with other state-of-the-art algorithms, is relatively small. The Kalman filter is utilized for establishing a benchmark for the obtained performance of the proposed tracking algorithm. The performance degradation relative to a full channel state information (CSI) due to the application of the tracking algorithm is evaluated in terms of average effective rate and the outage probability and compared with alternative tracking algorithms. The obtained results are also compared with a benchmark obtained by the Kalman filter with known input signal and channel characteristics. It is shown that the expected degradation in performance of frequency-domain algorithms (which do not exploit the smooth frequency response of the channel) is only minor compared with time-domain algorithms in a range of reasonable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) levels. The proposed bidirectional frequency-domain tracking algorithm, proposed in this paper, is shown to attain communication rates close to the benchmark and to outperform a competing algorithm. The paper is concluded by evaluating the proposed blind tracking method in terms of the outage probability and the symbol error rate (SER) versus.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Analysis and design of multielement antenna systems in mobile fading channels require a model for the space-time cross-correlation among the links of the underlying multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO Mobile-to-Mobile (M-to-M communication channels. In this paper, we propose the modified geometrical two-ring model, a MIMO channel reference model for M-to-M communication systems. This model is based on the extension of single-bounce two-ring scattering model for flat fading channel under the assumption that the transmitter and the receiver are moving. Assuming single-bounce scattering model in both isotropic and nonisotropic environment, a closed-form expression for the space-time cross-correlation function (CCF between any two subchannels is derived. The proposed model provides an important framework in M-to-M system design, where includes many existing correlation models as special cases. Also, two realizable statistical simulation models are proposed for simulating both isotropic and nonisotropic reference model. The realizable simulation models are based on Sum-of-Sinusoids (SoS simulation model. Finally, the correctness of the proposed simulation models is shown via different simulation scenarios.

    In this paper, linear transceiver design for dual-hop non-regenerative (amplify-and-forward (AF)) MIMO-OFDM systems under channel estimation errors is investigated. Second order moments of channel estimation errors in the two hops are first deduced. Then based on the Bayesian framework, joint design of linear forwarding matrix at the relay and equalizer at the destination under channel estimation errors is proposed to minimize the total mean-square-error (MSE) of the output signal at the destination. The optimal designs for both correlated and uncorrelated channel estimation errors are considered. The relationship with existing algorithms is also disclosed. Moreover, this design is extended to the joint design involving source precoder design. Simulation results show that the proposed design outperforms the design based on estimated channel state information only.

    Ahmad Ansari, Ejaz; Rajatheva, Nandana

    Although the topic of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) based orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) over different fading channels is well investigated, its closed form symbol error rate (SER) expressions and performance results employing orthogonal space time block codes (OSTBCs) over uncorrelated frequency-selective Nakagami-m fading channels are still not available. The closed form expressions are extremely useful for evaluating system's performance without carrying out time consuming simulations. Similarly, the performance results are also quite beneficial for determining the system's performance in the sense that many practical wireless standards extensively employ MIMO-OFDM systems in conjunction with M-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (M-QAM) constellation. This paper thus, derives exact closed form expressions for the SER of M-ary Gray-coded one and two dimensional constellations when an OSTBC is employed and Nt transmit antennas are selected for transmission over frequency-selective Nakagami-m fading channels. For this purpose, first an exact closed-form of average SER expression of OSTBC based MIMO-OFDM system for M-ary phase shift keying (M-PSK) using traditional probability density function (PDF) approach is derived. We then compute exact closed form average SER expressions for M-ary pulse amplitude modulation (M-PAM) and M-QAM schemes by utilizing this generalized result. These expressions are valid over both frequency-flat and frequency-selective Nakagami-m fading MIMO channels and can easily be evaluated without using any numerical integration methods. We also show that average SER of MIMO-OFDM system using OSTBC in case of frequency-selective Rayleigh fading channels remains independent to the number of taps, L of that fading channel and the performance of the same system for two-tap un-correlated Rayleigh and Nakagami-m fading channels is better than that of the correlated one.

    Multi-antenna precoding effectively mitigates the interference in wireless networks. However, the resultant performance gains can be significantly compromised in practice if the precoder design fails to account for the inaccuracy in the channel state information (CSI) feedback. This paper addresses this issue by considering finite-rate CSI feedback from receivers to their interfering transmitters in the two-user multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) interference channel, called \\emph{cooperative feedback}, and proposing a systematic precoder design. Specifically, each precoder is decomposed into inner and outer precoders for nulling interference and improving the data-link array gain, respectively. The inner precoders are further designed to suppress the residual interference resulting from the finite-rate cooperative feedback. To regulate such interference, additional scalar cooperative feedback signals are designed to control transmission power using different criteria including fixed interference margins, ...

    In this paper, we characterize the ergodic capacity of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Rayleigh fading channels with full channel state information (CSI) at both the transmitter (CSI-T) and the receiver (CSI-R) at asymptotically low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). A simple analytical expression of the capacity is derived for any number of transmit and receive antennas. This characterization clearly shows the substantial gain in terms of capacity over the no CSI-T case and gives a good insight on the effect of the number of antennas used. In addition, an On-Off transmission scheme is proposed and is shown to be asymptotically capacity-achieving. © 2012 IEEE.

    Using analytical methods of statistical mechanics, we analyse the typical behaviour of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Gaussian channel with binary inputs under low-density parity-check (LDPC) network coding and joint decoding. The saddle point equations for the replica symmetric solution are found in particular realizations of this channel, including a small and large number of transmitters and receivers. In particular, we examine the cases of a single transmitter, a single receiver and symmetric and asymmetric interference. Both dynamical and thermodynamical transitions from the ferromagnetic solution of perfect decoding to a non-ferromagnetic solution are identified for the cases considered, marking the practical and theoretical limits of the system under the current coding scheme. Numerical results are provided, showing the typical level of improvement/deterioration achieved with respect to the single transmitter/receiver result, for the various cases.

    Full Text Available This paper presents an evaluation of the MIMO performance of three candidate antenna array designs, each embedded within a PDA footprint, using indoor wideband channel measurements at 5.2 GHz alongside channel simulations. A channel model which employs the plane-wave approximation was used to combine the embedded antenna radiation patterns of the candidate devices obtained from far-field pattern measurements and multipath component parameters from an indoor ray-tracer. The 4-element candidate arrays were each constructed using a different type of antenna element, and despite the diverse element directivities, pattern characteristics, and polarization purities, all three devices were constructed to fully exploit diversity in polarization, space, and angle. Thus, low correlation and high information theoretic capacity was observed in each case. A good match between the model and the measurements is also demonstrated, especially for 2×2 MIMO subsets of identically or orthogonally polarized linear slot antennas. The interdependencies between the channel XPD, directional spread and pathloss, and the respective impact on channel capacity are also discussed in this paper.

    2014-05-01

    The capacity of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Rayleigh fading channels with full knowledge of channel state information (CSI) at both the transmitter and the receiver (CSI-TR) has been shown recently to scale at low Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) essentially as SNR log(1=SNR), independently of the number of transmit and receive antennas. In this paper, we investigate the ergodic capacity of MIMO Rayleigh fading channel with estimated channel state information at the transmitter (CSI-T) and possibly imperfect channel state information at the receiver (CSI-R). Our framework can be seen as a generalization of previous works as it can capture the perfect CSI-TR as a special case when the estimation error variance goes to zero. In our work, we mainly focus on the low SNR regime and we show that the capacity scales as (1-α) SNR log(1=SNR), where α is the estimation error variance. This characterization shows the loss of performance due to error estimation over the perfect channel state information at both the transmitter and the receiver. As a by-product of our new analysis, we show that our framework can also be extended to characterize the capacity of MIMO Rician fading channels at low SNR with possibly imperfect CSI-T and CSI-R. © 2014 IFIP.

    The capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Rayleigh fading channels with full knowledge of channel state information (CSI) at both the transmitter and the receiver (CSI-TR) has been shown recently to scale at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) essentially as SNR log(1/SNR), independently of the number of transmit and receive antennas. In this paper, we investigate the ergodic capacity of MIMO Rayleigh fading channel with estimated channel state information at the transmitter (CSI-T) and possibly imperfect channel state information at the receiver (CSI-R). Our framework can be seen as a generalization of previous works as it can capture the perfect CSI-TR as a special case when the estimation error variance goes to zero. In this paper, we mainly focus on the low SNR regime, and we show that the capacity scales as (1-α) SNR log(1/SNR), where α is the estimation error variance. This characterization shows the loss of performance due to error estimation over the perfect channel state information at both the transmitter and the receiver. As a by-product of our new analysis, we show that our framework can be also extended to characterize the capacity of MIMO Rician fading channels at low SNR with possibly imperfect CSI-T and CSI-R. © 1972-2012 IEEE.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a generalized spectral subtraction approach for reducing additive impulsive noise, narrowband signals, white Gaussian noise and DS-CDMA interferences in MIMO channel DS-CDMA wireless communication systems is investigated. The interference noise reduction or suppression is essential problem in wireless mobile communication systems to improve the quality of communication. The spectrum subtraction scheme is applied to the interference noise reduction problems for noisy MIMO channel systems. The interferences in space and time domain signals can effectively be suppressed by selecting threshold values, and the computational load with the FFT is not large. Further, the fading effects of channel are compensated by spectral modification with the spectral subtraction process. In the simulations, the effectiveness of the proposed methods for the MIMO channel DS-CDMA is shown to compare with the conventional MIMO channel DS-CDMA.

    Full Text Available The problem of jointly optimizing the source precoder, relay transceiver, and destination equalizer has been considered in this paper for a multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO amplify-and-forward (AF relay channel, where the channel estimates of all links are assumed to be imperfect. The considered joint optimization problem is nonconvex and does not offer closed-form solutions. However, it has been shown that the optimization of one variable when others are fixed is a convex optimization problem which can be efficiently solved using interior-point algorithms. In this context, an iterative technique with the guaranteed convergence has been proposed for the AF MIMO relay channel that includes the direct link. It has been also shown that, for the double-hop relay case without the receive-side antenna correlations in each hop, the global optimality can be confirmed since the structures of the source precoder, relay transceiver, and destination equalizer have closed forms and the remaining joint power allocation can be solved using Geometric Programming (GP technique under high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR approximation. In the latter case, the performance of the iterative technique and the GP method has been compared with simulations to ensure that the iterative approach gives reasonably good solutions with an acceptable complexity. Moreover, simulation results verify the robustness of the proposed design when compared to the nonrobust design that assumes estimated channels as actual channels.

    Full Text Available This paper considers the problem of uplink transmission over multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO channels affected by slow frequency-nonselective uncorrelated and correlated Rayleigh fading. We consider the case when channel state information, corrupted by estimation errors, is available at the receiver only. In this setting, we generalize the derivation of our previously proposed linear-complexity MIMO signal detector and derive closed-form expressions for the distribution of its soft outputs and the approximate symbol error probability. Based on this soft decision detector, we consider a turbo-coded MIMO uplink architecture with iterative processing, which enables performance within 1.6 to 2.8 dB of the ergodic capacity limit and outperforms the T-BLAST (turbo-Bell Laboratories layered space-time system by about 10 dB at bit error rates of 10−5. The presented results illustrate that this linear-complexity MIMO signal detector is highly robust to channel estimation errors.

    This letter investigates the energy efficiency (EE) scaling law for the broadcasting channels (BC) with many users, in which the non-ideal transmit independent power consumption is taken into account. We first consider the single antenna case with $K$ users, and derive that the EE scales as $\\frac{{\\log_2 \\ln K}}{\\alpha}$ when $\\alpha > 0$ and $\\log_2 K$ when $\\alpha = 0$, where $\\alpha$ is the normalized transmit independent power. After that, we extend it to the general MIMO BC case with a $M$-antenna transmitter and $K$ users each with $N$ antennas. The scaling law becomes $\\frac{{M \\log_2 \\ln NK}}{\\alpha}$ when $\\alpha > 0$ and $ \\log_2 NK$ when $\\alpha = 0$.

    In this paper, we propose an efficient optimal joint channel estimation and data detection algorithm for massive MIMO wireless systems. Our algorithm is optimal in terms of the generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT). For massive MIMO systems, we show that the expected complexity of our algorithm grows polynomially in the channel coherence time. Simulation results demonstrate significant performance gains of our algorithm compared with suboptimal non-coherent detection algorithms. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first algorithm which efficiently achieves GLRT-optimal non-coherent detections for massive MIMO systems with general constellations.

    A model of MIMO system over spatial correlative and frequency selective channel is constructed. The non - binary RA codes are adapted as channel codes at the transmitter,and a correlative and uncorre-latod channel adaptive iterative detection method using soft interference cancellation is adapted at the re-ceiver. In this method, the sliding window based on MMSE method is used to cancel inter - symbol interfer-ence(ISI), then joint antenn as maximum likelihood detection is performed, finally soft information is pas-sod from detector to decoder,thus one iteration process(called JAD SC/MMSE) is completed. This model brings very low bit error rate (BER), and its advanced scheme, where diversity in modulation field is added at the transmitter,can achieve better performance. For contrast, BER of the common scheme, based on an-tenna by antenna detection which uses MMSE only (ABA SC/MMSE) is very poor. The simulation result also proves the opinion above.%给出了一种频率选择性信道下空间相关MIMO的系统模型,其发送端采用准循环系统RA码,接收端采用一种对空间相关和非相关信道均适用的软干扰消除迭代检测算法.该算法首先采用基于最小均方误差检测(MMSE)的滑动窗口模型进行干扰消除,然后采用多天线联合最大似然检测(ML)以得到软信息,再将得到的软信息传递到译码器译码并输出发送比特的软信息作为下一次迭代的先验信息,即完成一次迭代.此模型能够取得比较好的误码率性能(BER),其改进方案既增加了发送端的调制域分集,性能又有提升.作为比较,基于软干扰消除的逐天线MMSE迭代检测的方案(ABA SC/MMSE)性能很差.仿真结果也证明了以上观点.

    2011-01-01

    We consider a multi-cell frequency-selective fading uplink channel (network MIMO) from K single-antenna user terminals (UTs) to B cooperative base stations (BSs) with M antennas each. The BSs, assumed to be oblivious of the applied codebooks, forward compressed versions of their observations to a central station (CS) via capacity limited backhaul links. The CS jointly decodes the messages from all UTs. Since the BSs and the CS are assumed to have no prior channel state information (CSI), the channel needs to be estimated during its coherence time. Based on a lower bound of the ergodic mutual information, we determine the optimal fraction of the coherence time used for channel training, taking different path losses between the UTs and the BSs into account. We then study how the optimal training length is impacted by the backhaul capacity. Although our analytical results are based on a large system limit, we show by simulations that they provide very accurate approximations for even small system dimensions.

    2011-01-01

    The fundamental diversity-multiplexing tradeoff of the three-node, multi-input, multi-output (MIMO), quasi-static, Rayleigh faded, half-duplex relay channel is characterized for an arbitrary number of antennas at each node and in which opportunistic scheduling (or dynamic operation) of the relay is allowed, i.e., the relay can switch between receive and transmit modes at a channel dependent time. In this most general case, the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff is characterized as a solution to a simple, two-variable optimization problem. This problem is then solved in closed form for special classes of channels defined by certain restrictions on the numbers of antennas at the three nodes. The key mathematical tool developed here that enables the explicit characterization of the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff is the joint eigenvalue distribution of three mutually correlated random Wishart matrices. Previously, without actually characterizing the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff, the optimality in this tradeoff m...

  11. Bidirectional Fano Algorithm for Lattice Coded MIMO Channels

    2013-05-08

    Recently, lattices - a mathematical representation of infinite discrete points in the Euclidean space, have become an effective way to describe and analyze communication systems especially system those that can be modeled as linear Gaussian vector channel model. Channel codes based on lattices are preferred due to three facts: lattice codes have simple structure, the code can achieve the limits of the channel, and they can be decoded efficiently using lattice decoders which can be considered as the Closest Lattice Point Search (CLPS). Since the time lattice codes were introduced to Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) channel, Sphere Decoder (SD) has been an efficient way to implement lattice decoders. Sphere decoder offers the optimal performance at the expense of high decoding complexity especially for low signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) and for high- dimensional systems. On the other hand, linear and non-linear receivers, Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE), and MMSE Decision-Feedback Equalization (DFE), provide the lowest decoding complexity but unfortunately with poor performance. Several studies works have been conducted in the last years to address the problem of designing low complexity decoders for the MIMO channel that can achieve near optimal performance. It was found that sequential decoders using backward tree 
search can bridge the gap between SD and MMSE. The sequential decoder provides an interesting performance-complexity trade-off using a bias term. Yet, the sequential decoder still suffers from high complexity for mid-to-high SNR values. In this work, we propose a new algorithm for Bidirectional Fano sequential Decoder (BFD) in order to reduce the mid-to-high SNR complexity. Our algorithm consists of first constructing a unidirectional Sequential Decoder based on forward search using the QL decomposition. After that, BFD incorporates two searches, forward and backward, to work simultaneously till they merge and find the closest lattice point to the

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA and multiple input multiple output- (MIMO- CDMA systems suffer from multiple access interference (MAI which limits the spectral efficiency of these systems. By making these systems more power efficient, we can increase the overall spectral efficiency. This can be achieved through the use of improved modulation and coding techniques. Conventional MIMO-CDMA systems use fixed spreading code assignments. By strategically selecting the spreading codes as a function of the data to be transmitted, we can achieve coding gain and introduce additional degrees of freedom in the decision variables at the output of the matched filters. In this paper, we examine the bit error rate performance of parity bit-selected spreading and permutation spreading under different wireless channel conditions. A suboptimal detection technique based on maximum likelihood detection is proposed for these systems operating in frequency selective channels. Simulation results demonstrate that these code assignment techniques provide an improvement in performance in terms of bit error rate (BER while providing increased spectral efficiency compared to the conventional system. Moreover, the proposed strategies are more robust to channel estimation errors as well as spatial correlation.

    2007-12-01

    Full Text Available Joint linear beamforming and scheduling are performed in a system where limited feedback is present at the transmitter side. The feedback conveyed by each user to the base station consists of channel direction information (CDI based on a predetermined codebook and a scalar metric with channel quality information (CQI used to perform user scheduling. In this paper, we present a design framework for scalar feedback in MIMO broadcast channels with limited feedback. An approximation on the sum rate is provided for the proposed family of metrics, which is validated through simulations. For a given number of active users and average SNR conditions, the base station is able to update certain transmission parameters in order to maximize the sum-rate function. On the other hand, the proposed sum-rate function provides a means of simple comparison between transmission schemes and scalar feedback techniques. Particularly, the sum rate of SDMA and time division multiple access (TDMA is compared in the following extreme regimes: large number of users, high SNR, and low SNR. Simulations are provided to illustrate the performance of various scalar feedback techniques based on the proposed design framework.

    In this paper, we propose a codebook-based interference alignment (IA) scheme in the constant multiple-input multipleoutput (MIMO) interference channel especially for the uplink scenario. In our proposed scheme, we assume cooperation among base stations (BSs) through reliable backhaul links so that global channel knowledge is available for all BSs, which enables BS to compute the transmit precoder and inform its quantized index to the associated user via limited rate feedback link.We present an upper bound on the rate loss of the proposed scheme and derive the scaling law of the feedback load tomaintain a constant rate loss relative to IA with perfect channel knowledge. Considering the impact of overhead due to training, cooperation, and feedback, we address the effective degrees of freedom (DOF) of the proposed scheme and derive the maximization of the effective DOF. From simulation results, we verify our analysis on the scaling law to preserve the multiplexing gain and confirm that the proposed scheme is more effective than the conventional IA scheme in terms of the effective DOF. © 2014 KICS.

    A method of MIMO channel tracking based on Kalman filter and MMSE-DFE is proposed. The Kalman filter tracks the time-varying channel by using the MMSE-DFE decision and the MMSE-DFE conducts the next decision by using the channel estimates produced by the Kalman filter. Polynomial fitting is used to bridge the gap between the channel estimates produced by the Kalman filter and those needed for the DFE decision. Computer simulation demonstrates that this method can track the MIMO time-varying channel effectively.

  17. Improving MIMO-OFDM decision-directed channel estimation by utilizing error-correcting codes

    P. Beinschob

    2009-05-01

    Full Text Available In this paper a decision-directed Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO channel tracking algorithm is enhanced to raise the channel estimate accuracy. While DDCE is prone to error propagation the enhancement employs channel decoding in the tracking process. Therefore, a quantized block of symbols is checked on consistency via the channel decoder, possibly corrected and then used. This yields a more robust tracking of the channel in terms of bit error rate and improves the channel estimate under certain conditions.

    Equalization is performed to prove the feasibility of the obtained channel estimate. Therefore a combined signal consisting of data and pilot symbols is sent. Adaptive filters are applied to exploit correlations in time, frequency and spatial domain. By using good error-correcting coding schemes like Turbo Codes or Low Density Parity Check (LDPC codes, adequate channel estimates can be acquired even at low signal to noise ratios (SNR. The proposed algorithm among two others is applied for channel estimation and equalization and results are compared.

    CERN Document Server

    2010-01-01

    The diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) is obtained for the symmetric MIMO half-duplex (HD) relay channel where the source and the destination have $n$ antennas each and the relay node has $m$ antennas (hereafter, such a channel is referred to as an $(n,m)$-relay channel). The characterization of the DMT requires the joint eigenvalue distribution of three specially correlated central Wishart random matrices, which is derived using a related result in [1], [2]. The explicit characterization of the DMT, besides providing the theoretical benchmark for evaluating performance of practical cooperative protocols on this channel, reveals several interesting facts such as: a) the HD operation of the relay fundamentally limits relay channel performance in the sense that the DMT of the full-duplex (FD) relay channel can be strictly greater than that of the HD relay channel; b) an extra antenna at the relay node on a HD relay channel does not always improve the achievable diversity order, unlike that on an FD relay cha...

    Full Text Available In this study, various techniques of UWA (Underwater Acoustic, UWA channel estimation for underwater MIMO-OFDM system are studied. Dual turbo channel estimation algorithm based on channel puncture technique is proposed. In order to judge the criteria of channel compensation, difference between the raw received signal and the re-coded information signal is carried out. The uncertain sub-channels are punched by using channel puncture technique and replaced by the responses estimated by MMSE (Minimum Mean Square Error, MMSE or OMP (Orthogonal Matching Pursuit, OMP algorithms. Compared with the conventional existing algorithms, the proposed algorithm can effectively reduce the occupancy of pilots, offer confined error propagation and significantly increase the stability of the system with Monte Caro simulation. The results of in-tank-experiment further indorse the reliable performance with improved efficiency of 1.51 bits/s/Hz.

    2007-01-01

    We consider a MIMO fading broadcast channel and compute achievable ergodic rates when channel state information is acquired at the receivers via downlink training and explicit channel feedback is performed to provide transmitter channel state information (CSIT). Both ``analog'' and quantized (digital) channel feedback are analyzed, and digital feedback is shown to be potentially superior when the feedback channel uses per channel coefficient is larger than 1. Also, we show that by proper design of the digital feedback link, errors in the feedback have a relatively minor effect even if simple uncoded modulation is used on the feedback channel. We extend our analysis to the case of fading MIMO Multiaccess Channel (MIMO-MAC) in the feedback link, as well as to the case of a time-varying channel and feedback delay. We show that by exploiting the MIMO-MAC nature of the uplink channel, a fully scalable system with both downlink multiplexing gain and feedback redundancy proportional to the number of base station ant...

    2011-01-01

    Fading MIMO relay channels are studied analytically, when the source and destination are equipped with multiple antennas and the relays have a single one. Compact closed-form expressions are obtained for the outage probability under i.i.d. and correlated Rayleigh-fading links. Low-outage approximations are derived, which reveal a number of insights, including the impact of correlation, of the number of antennas, of relay noise and of relaying protocol. The effect of correlation is shown to be negligible, unless the channel becomes almost fully correlated. The SNR loss of relay fading channels compared to the AWGN channel is quantified. The SNR-asymptotic diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) is obtained for a broad class of fading distributions, including, as special cases, Rayleigh, Rice, Nakagami, Weibull, which may be non-identical, spatially correlated and/or non-zero mean. The DMT is shown to depend not on a particular fading distribution, but rather on its polynomial behavior near zero, and is the same ...

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available We propose a wideband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO car-to-car (C2C channel model based on the geometrical street scattering model. Starting from the geometrical model, a MIMO reference channel model is derived under the assumption of single-bounce scattering in line-of-sight (LOS and non-LOS (NLOS propagation environments. The proposed channel model assumes an infinite number of scatterers, which are uniformly distributed in two rectangular areas located on both sides of the street. Analytical solutions are presented for the space-time-frequency cross-correlation function (STF-CCF, the two-dimensional (2D space CCF, the time-frequency CCF (TF-CCF, the temporal autocorrelation function (ACF, and the frequency correlation function (FCF. An efficient sum-of-cisoids (SOCs channel simulator is derived from the reference model. It is shown that the temporal ACF and the FCF of the SOC channel simulator fit very well to the corresponding correlation functions of the reference model. To validate the proposed channel model, the mean Doppler shift and the Doppler spread of the reference model have been matched to real-world measurement data. The comparison results demonstrate an excellent agreement between theory and measurements, which confirms the validity of the derived reference model. The proposed geometry-based channel simulator allows us to study the effect of nearby street scatterers on the performance of C2C communication systems.

    In this paper, we consider a uniform circular array (UCA) of directional antennas at the base station (BS) and the mobile station (MS) and derive an exact closed-form expression for the spatial correlation present in the 3D multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel constituted by these arrays. The underlying method leverages the mathematical convenience of the spherical harmonic expansion (SHE) of plane waves and the trigonometric expansion of Legendre and associated Legendre polynomials. In contrast to the existing results, this generalized closed-form expression is independent of the form of the underlying angular distributions and antenna patterns. Moreover, the incorporation of the elevation dimension into the antenna pattern and channel model renders the proposed expression extremely useful for the performance evaluation of 3D MIMO systems in the future. Verification is achieved with the help of simulation results, which highlight the dependence of the spatial correlation on channel and array parameters. An interesting interplay between the mean angle of departure (AoD), angular spread and the positioning of antennas in the array is demonstrated. © 2016 IEEE.

  8. Iterative Sparse Channel Estimation and Decoding for Underwater MIMO-OFDM

    Full Text Available We propose a block-by-block iterative receiver for underwater MIMO-OFDM that couples channel estimation with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO detection and low-density parity-check (LDPC channel decoding. In particular, the channel estimator is based on a compressive sensing technique to exploit the channel sparsity, the MIMO detector consists of a hybrid use of successive interference cancellation and soft minimum mean-square error (MMSE equalization, and channel coding uses nonbinary LDPC codes. Various feedback strategies from the channel decoder to the channel estimator are studied, including full feedback of hard or soft symbol decisions, as well as their threshold-controlled versions. We study the receiver performance using numerical simulation and experimental data collected from the RACE08 and SPACE08 experiments. We find that iterative receiver processing including sparse channel estimation leads to impressive performance gains. These gains are more pronounced when the number of available pilots to estimate the channel is decreased, for example, when a fixed number of pilots is split between an increasing number of parallel data streams in MIMO transmission. For the various feedback strategies for iterative channel estimation, we observe that soft decision feedback slightly outperforms hard decision feedback.

    2008-01-01

    We present a general rate duality between the multiple access channel (MAC) and the broadcast channel (BC) which is applicable to systems with and without nonlinear interference cancellation. Different to the state-of-the-art rate duality with interference subtraction from Vishwanath et al., the proposed duality is filter-based instead of covariance-based and exploits the arising unitary degree of freedom to decorrelate every point-to-point link. Therefore, it allows for noncooperative stream-wise decoding which reduces complexity and latency. Moreover, the conversion from one domain to the other does not exhibit any dependencies during its computation making it accessible to a parallel implementation instead of a serial one. We additionally derive a rate duality for systems with multi-antenna terminals when linear filtering without interference (pre-)subtraction is applied and the different streams of a single user are not treated as self-interference. Both dualities are based on a framework already applied ...

  11. Balancing Egoism and Altruism on the Interference Channel: The MIMO case

    CERN Document Server

    Ho, Zuleita K M

    2010-01-01

    This paper considers the so-called MIMO interference channel. This situation has relevance in applications such as multi-cell coordination in cellular networks as well as spectrum sharing in cognitive radio networks among others. We address the design of precoding (i.e. beamforming) vectors at each sender with the aim of striking a compromise between beamforming gain at the intended receiver (Egoism) and the mitigation of interference created towards other receivers (Altruism). Combining egoistic and altruistic beamforming has been shown previously to be instrumental to optimizing the rates in a MISO interference channel (i.e. where receivers have no interference canceling capability) . Here we explore these game-theoretic concepts in the more general context of MIMO channels and using the framework of Bayesian games, allowing us to derive (semi-)distributed precoding techniques. We draw parallels with existing work on the MIMO interference channel, including rate-optimizing and interference-alignement precod...

    2011-01-01

    In this paper, we consider a Partial Interference Alignment and Interference Detection (PIAID) design for $K$-user quasi-static MIMO interference channels with discrete constellation inputs. Each transmitter has M antennas and transmits L independent data streams to the desired receiver with N receive antennas. We focus on the case where not all K-1 interfering transmitters can be aligned at every receiver. As a result, there will be residual interference at each receiver that cannot be aligned. Each receiver detects and cancels the residual interference based on the constellation map. However, there is a window of unfavorable interference profile at the receiver for Interference Detection (ID). In this paper, we propose a low complexity Partial Interference Alignment scheme in which we dynamically select the user set for IA so as to create a favorable interference profile for ID at each receiver. We first derive the average symbol error rate (SER) by taking into account of the non-Guassian residual interfere...

    Due to the massive data traffic in wireless networks, energy consumption has become a crucial concern, especially with the limited power supply of the mobile terminals and the increasing CO2 emission of the cellular industry. In this context, we study the energy efficiency (EE) of MIMO spectrum sharing cognitive radio (CR) systems under power and interference constraints. We present an energy-efficient power allocation framework based on maximizing the average EE per parallel channel resulting from the singular value decomposition (SVD) eigenmode transmission. We also present a sub-optimal low-complexity power allocation scheme based on the water-filling power allocation. In the numerical results, we show that the sub-optimal power allocation achieves at least 95% of the optimal performance. In addition, we show that adopting more antennas is more energy efficient for a given power budget. Finally, we show that the interference threshold has a significant effect on both the EE and the spectral efficiency at high-power regime.

    多输入多输出/智能天线(multiple input multiple output/smart antenna,MIMO/SA)系统是4G的关键技术之一,多天线的互耦效应是影响MIMO/SA多天线系统性能的主要问题.建立了MIMO与SA相结合的多天线系统模型,推导了互耦效应影响下空间相关系数和信道容量的表达式;通过电磁场数值计算和蒙特卡罗方法仿真MIMO/SA多天线系统的各态历经信道容量.结果表明:在典型的角度谱分布下改变天线间距,考虑互耦效应的信道容量围绕无互耦效应时的信道容量上下振荡;基站天线阵列间距增大信道容量持续增大,移动台天线阵列间距增大到0.5倍波长后信道容量基本保持不变;互耦效应增大信道的空域相关性,从而降低信道容量.%Multiple input multiple output and smart antenna (MIMO/SA) system is one of the key technologies for the fourth generation mobile communications system, mutual coupling is the main factor which affects the performance of MIMO/SA multi-antenna systems. A combination model of M1MO and SA is presented. With the existing of mutual coupling effects the expressions of spatial correlation and channel capacity are derived. The ergodic capacity of MIMO/SA multi-antenna systems is simulated using electromagnetic numeric method and Monte Carlo method. The results show that in the typical power azimuth spectrum distribution, the channel capacity which takes mutual coupling into account oscillates up and down around the channel capacity without mutual coupling while changing the distance of the antennas; the channel capacity increases continually while increasing the distance of base station antenna array; when antennas distance of the mobile station is farther than 0. 5 wavelength the channel capacity remains almost the same even though the antenna array distance increases; and mutual coupling increases the channel spatial correlation of MIMO/SA multi-antenna systems and thus reduces the channel capacity.

    2008-01-01

    A channel estimation method is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency di-vision multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems in time-varying fading channels. In this method, a decision-direct-ed space-ahernating generalized expectation-maximization (SAGE) algorithm is introduced to the tracking of time-varying fading. In order to improve the estimation performance of the SAGE algorithm, a low rank approxi-mation method is presented by using the signal subspaee of the channel frequency autocorrelation matrix. The study reveals that this method can be incorporated into the SAGE algorithm. Furthermore, a modified fast sub-space tracking algorithm is given to adaptively estimate the signal subspace by utilizing training OFDM blocks sent at regular interval. Simulation results demonstrate the considerable benefits of the proposed channel estima-tion method.

    KAUST Repository

    Chaaban, Anas

    2016-10-01

    The capacity of MIMO intensity modulation channels is studied. The nonnegativity of the transmit signal (intensity) poses a challenge on the precoding of the transmit signal, which limits the applicability of classical schemes in this type of channels. To resolve this issue, capacity lower bounds are developed by using precoding-free schemes. This is achieved by channel inversion or QR decomposition to convert the MIMO channel to a set of parallel channels. The achievable rate of a DC-offset SVD based scheme is also derived as a benchmark. Then, a capacity upper bound is derived and is shown to coincide with the achievable rate of the QR decomposition based scheme at high SNR, consequently characterizing the high-SNR capacity of the channel. The high-SNR gap between capacity and the achievable rates of the channel inversion and the DC-offset SVD based schemes is also characterized. Finally, the ergodic capacity of the channel is also briefly discussed.

    2010-01-01

    We consider interference alignment (IA) over K-user Gaussian MIMO interference channel (MIMO-IC) when the SNR is not asymptotically high. We introduce a generalization of IA which enables receive diversity inside the interference-free subspace. We generalize the existence criterion of an IA solution proposed by Yetis et al. to this case, thereby establishing a multi-user diversity-multiplexing trade-off (DMT) for the interference channel. Furthermore, we derive a closed-form tight lower-bound for the ergodic mutual information achievable using IA over a Gaussian MIMO-IC with Gaussian i.i.d. channel coefficients at arbitrary SNR, when the transmitted signals are white inside the subspace defined by IA. Finally, as an application of the previous results, we compare the performance achievable by IA at various operating points allowed by the DMT, to a recently introduced distributed method based on game theory.

    2010-01-01

    This paper considers a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Gaussian wiretap channel model, where there exists a transmitter, a legitimate receiver and an eavesdropper, each equipped with multiple antennas. Perfect secrecy is achieved when the transmitter and the legitimate receiver can communicate at some positive rate, while ensuring that the eavesdropper gets zero bits of information. In this paper, the perfect secrecy capacity of the multiple antenna MIMO wiretap channel is found for aribtrary numbers of antennas under the assumption that the transmitter performs beamforming based on the generalized singular value decomposition (GSVD). More precisely, the optimal allocation of power for the GSVD-based precoder that achieves the secrecy capacity is derived. This solution is shown to have several advantages over prior work that considered secrecy capacity for the general MIMO Gaussian wiretap channel under a high SNR assumption. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the proposed theoretical finding...

    In this paper, we investigate the effect of channel estimation error on the capacity and bit-error rate (BER) of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmit maximal ratio transmission (MRT) and receive maximal ratio combining (MRC) systems over uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. We first derive the ergodic (average) capacity expressions for such systems when power adaptation is applied at the transmitter. The exact capacity expression for the uniform power allocation case is also presented. Furthermore, to investigate the diversity order of MIMO MRT-MRC scheme, we derive the BER performance under a uniform power allocation policy. We also present an asymptotic BER performance analysis for the MIMO MRT-MRC system with multiuser diversity. The numerical results are given to illustrate the sensitivity of the main performance to the channel estimation error and the tightness of the approximate cutoff value. © 2011 IEEE.

  1. Space-Time Water-Filling for Composite MIMO Fading Channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available We analyze the ergodic capacity and channel outage probability for a composite MIMO channel model, which includes both fast fading and shadowing effects. The ergodic capacity and exact channel outage probability with space-time water-filling can be evaluated through numerical integrations, which can be further simplified by using approximated empirical eigenvalue and maximal eigenvalue distribution of MIMO fading channels. We also compare the performance of space-time water-filling with spatial water-filling. For MIMO channels with small shadowing effects, spatial water-filling performs very close to space-time water-filling in terms of ergodic capacity. For MIMO channels with large shadowing effects, however, space-time water-filling achieves significantly higher capacity per antenna than spatial water-filling at low to moderate SNR regimes, but with a much higher channel outage probability. We show that the analytical capacity and outage probability results agree very well with those obtained from Monte Carlo simulations.

    The combination of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), MIMO-OFDM, is a promising way of achieving high spectral efficiency in wireless communication systems. However, the performance of MIMO-ODFM systems is highly degraded by radio frequency (RF) impairments such as phase noise. Similar to the single-input single-output (SISO) case, phase noise in MIMO-OFDM systems results in a common phase error (CPE) and inter carrier interference (ICI). In this paper the problem of joint channel and phase noise estimation in a system with multiple transmit and receive antennas where each antenna is equipped with its own independent oscillator is tackled. The technique employed makes use of a novel placement of pilot carriers in the preamble and data portion of the MIMO-OFDM frame. Numerical results using a 16 and 64 quadrature amplitude modulation QAM schemes are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme for MIMO-OFDM systems.

    2007-01-01

    In this paper a method that combines transmit antenna selection and reduced-constellation detection in spatially correlated Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) fading channels is presented. To mitigate the performance degradation caused by the use of antenna selection that is based on correlation among columns, an iterative receiver scheme that uses only a subset of the constellation points close to the expected symbol value estimated in the previous iteration is proposed. The size of the subset can adapt to the maximum correlation of the sub-matrix after the simple antenna selection. Furthermore, the error rate performance of the scheme under linear Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) or Ordered Successive Interference Cancellation (OSIC) for the first run detection and different interleaver lengths is investigated while the transmit antenna selection is considered. The simulation results show a significant advantage both for implementation complexity and for error rate performance under a fixed data rate.

First, we propose a new Markov chain model for FEC based on RS codes and derive the expressions for QoS on the basis of this model, which comprise four metrics: throughput, packet error rate, delay, and energy efficiency. Then, we apply RS codes with the MIMO channel technology to the cross-layer design. Numerical and simulation results show that the joint design of MIMO and adaptive cooperative FEC based on RS codes can achieve considerable spectral efficiency gain, real-time performance, reliability, and energy utility.

  8. Performance of Adaptive Subchannel Assignment-Based MIMO/OFDM Systems over Multipath Fading Channels

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2006-01-01

    Adaptive antenna arrays at both the base and mobile stations can further increase system capacity and improve the quality of service of conventional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Conventional adaptive antenna array-based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)/OFDM systems use the sub-carriers characterized by the largest eigenvalue to transmit the OFDM symbols. This paper describes the performance of adaptive subchannel assignment-based MIMO/OFDM systems over multipath fading channels. The system adaptively selects the eigenvectors associated with the relatively large subchannel eigenvalues to generate the antenna array weights at the base and mobile stations and then adaptively assigns the corresponding best subchannels to transmit the OFDM symbols. Simulation results show that the proposed system can achieve better performance than the conventional adaptive antenna array-based MIMO/OFDM system over multipath fading channels.

    Mukherjee, Amitav

    2010-01-01

    This paper investigates reliable and covert transmission strategies in a MIMO wiretap channel with a transmitter, receiver and an adversarial wiretapper, each equipped with multiple antennas. In a departure from existing work, the wiretapper possesses the dual capability to act either as a passive eavesdropper or as an active jammer, under a halfduplex constraint. The transmitter therefore faces a choice between allocating all of its power for data, or broadcasting artificial noise along with the information signal in order to selectively jam the eavesdropper (assuming its instantaneous channel state is unknown). To examine the resulting tradeoffs for both agents, we model the network as a two-person zero-sum game with the ergodic MIMO secrecy rate as the payoff function. We first quantify and rank the various possible MIMO secrecy rate outcomes of the actions available to each player, and derive asymptotic expressions for the same. We then examine conditions for the existence of pure and mixed Nash equilibri...

To remedy this problem, a MIMO detection method based on fractional lower order statistics (FLOS for PLC channel with impulse noise is proposed in this paper. The alpha stable distribution is used to model impulse noise, and FLOS is applied to construct the criteria of MIMO detection. Then the optimal detection solution is obtained by recursive least squares algorithm. Finally, the transmitted signals in PLC MIMO system are restored with the obtained detection matrix. The proposed method does not require channel estimation and has low computational complexity. The simulation results show that the proposed method has a better PLC MIMO detection performance than the existing ones under impulsive noise environment.

    2007-01-01

    MIMO technology is one of the most significant advances in the past decade to increase channel capacity and has a great potential to improve network capacity for mesh networks. In a MIMO-based mesh network, the links outgoing from each node sharing the common communication spectrum can be modeled as a Gaussian vector broadcast channel. Recently, researchers showed that ``dirty paper coding'' (DPC) is the optimal transmission strategy for Gaussian vector broadcast channels. So far, there has been little study on how this fundamental result will impact the cross-layer design for MIMO-based mesh networks. To fill this gap, we consider the problem of jointly optimizing DPC power allocation in the link layer at each node and multihop/multipath routing in a MIMO-based mesh networks. It turns out that this optimization problem is a very challenging non-convex problem. To address this difficulty, we transform the original problem to an equivalent problem by exploiting the channel duality. For the transformed problem,...

    Vaze, Chinmay S

    2009-01-01

    A Dirty Paper Coding (DPC) based transmission scheme for the Gaussian multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) cognitive radio channel (CRC) is studied when there is imperfect and perfect channel knowledge at the transmitters (CSIT) and the receivers, respectively. In particular, the problem of optimizing the sum-rate of the MIMO CRC over the transmit covariance matrices is dealt with. Such an optimization, under the DPC-based transmission strategy, needs to be performed jointly with an optimization over the inflation factor. To this end, first the problem of determination of inflation factor over the MIMO channel $Y=H_1 X + H_2 S + Z$ with imperfect CSIT is investigated. For this problem, two iterative algorithms, which generalize the corresponding algorithms proposed for the channel $Y=H(X+S)+Z$, are developed. Later, the necessary conditions for maximizing the sum-rate of the MIMO CRC over the transmit covariances for a given choice of inflation factor are derived. Using these necessary conditions and the alg...

  15. Performance Analysis of Beamforming in MU-MIMO Systems for Rayleigh Fading Channels

    KAUST Repository

    2017-03-25

    This paper characterizes the performance metrics of MU-MIMO systems under Rayleigh fading channels in the presence of both cochannel interference and additive noise with unknown channel state information and known correlation matrices. In the first task, we derive analytical expressions for the cumulative distribution function of the instantaneous signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) for any deterministic beamvectors. As a second task, exact closed-form expressions are derived for the instantaneous capacity, the upper bound on ergodic capacity, and the Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization-based ergodic capacity for similar intra-cell correlation coefficients. Finally, we present the utility of several structured-diagonalization techniques, which can achieve the tractability for the approximate solution of ergodic capacity for both similar as well as different intra-cell correlation matrices. The novelty of this paper is to formulate the received SINR in terms of indefinite quadratic forms, which allows us to use complex residue theory to characterize the system behavior. The analytical expressions obtained closely match simulation results.

    A channel estimation approach for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing with multiple-input and multipleoutput(MIMO-OFDM)in rapid fading channels is proposed.This approach combines the advantages of an optimal training sequence based least-square(DLS)algorithm and an expectation-maximization(EM)algorithm.The channels at the training blocks are estimated using an estimator based on the OLS algorithm.To compensate for the fast Rayleigh fading at the data blocks,a time domain based Gaussian interpolation filter is presented.Furthermore,an EM algorithm is introduced to improve the performance of channel estimation by a few iterations.Simulations show that this channel estimation approach can effectively track rapid channel variation.

  18. Low SNR capacity for MIMO Rician and Rayleigh-product fading channels with single co-channel interferer and noise

    2010-09-01

    This paper studies the ergodic capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with a single co-channel interferer in the low signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) regime. Two MIMO models namely Rician and Rayleigh-product channels are investigated. Exact analytical expressions for the minimum energy per information bit, {Eb/N0min, and wideband slope, S0, are derived for both channels. Our results show that the minimum energy per information bit is the same for both channels while their wideband slopes differ significantly. Further, the impact of the numbers of transmit and receive antennas, the Rician K factor, the channel mean matrix and the interference-to-noise-ratio (INR) on the capacity, is addressed. Results indicate that interference degrades the capacity by increasing the required minimum energy per information bit and reducing the wideband slope. Simulation results validate our analytical results. © 2010 IEEE.

    This paper describes a Least Squares (LS) channel estimation scheme for MIMO OFDM systems based on time-domain training sequence. We first compute the minimum mean square error (MSE) of the LS channel estimation, and then derive the optimal criteria of the training sequence with respect to the minimum MSE. It is shown that optimal time-domain training sequence should satisfy two criteria. First, the autocorrelation of the sequence transmitted from the same antenna is an impulse function in a region longer than the channel maximum delay. Second, the cross-correlation between sequences transmitted from different antennas is zero in this region. Simulation results show that the estimator using optimal time-domain training sequences has better performance than that using optimal frequency training sequence at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). To reduce the training overhead, a suboptimal training sequence is also proposed. Comparing with optimal training sequence, it has low computation complexity and high transmission efficiency at the expense of little performance degradation.

    Full Text Available We consider a multiuser downlink transmission from a base station with multiple antennas (MIMO to mobile terminals (users with a single antenna, using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM. Channel conditions are reported by a feedback from users with limited rate, and the base station schedules transmissions and beamforms signals to users. We show that an important set of schedulers using a general utility function can be reduced to a scheduler maximizing the weighted sum rate of the system. For this case we then focus on scheduling methods with many users and OFDM subcarriers. Various scheduling strategies are compared in terms of achieved throughput and computational complexity and a good tradeoff is identified in greedy and semiorthogonal user selection algorithms. In the greedy selection algorithm, users are selected one by one as long as the throughput increases, while in the semiorthogonal approach users are selected based on the channel correlation. An extension of these approaches from a flat-fading channel to OFDM is considered and simplifications that may be useful for a large number of subcarriers are presented. Results are reported for a typical cellular transmission of the long-term evolution (LTE of 3GPP.

    Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) wireless communication link has been theoretically proven to be reliable and capable of achieving high capacity. However, these two advantageous characteristics tend to be addressed separately in many major researches. Researches on various approaches to attain both characteristics in a single MIMO system are still on-going and an established approach is yet to be concluded. To address this problem, in this paper a Vertical Bell Laboratories Layered Space-Time (V-BLAST) MIMO enhanced with Rate-Compatible Convolutional (RCPC) codes with Zero Forcing (ZF) and Minimum Mean Squared Error (MMSE)-based detection is proposed. The analytical BER of the system is presented and numerically analyzed. The system performance is analyzed in Nakagami-m fading channel, which provides accuracy and flexibility in matching the signals statistics compared to other fading models. The complexity which arises in the calculations of the RCPC codes parameters is significantly reduced by using equ...

  2. A Chaos MIMO Transmission Scheme for Channel Coding and Physical-Layer Security

    Okamoto, Eiji

    In recent wireless communication systems, security is ensured mainly in the upper-layer techniques such as a password or a cryptography processing. However, security needs not be restricted to the upper-layer and the addition of physical-layer security also would yield a much more robust system. Therefore, in this paper, we exploit chaos communication and propose a chaos multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission scheme which achieves physical-layer security and additional channel-coding gain. A chaotic modulation symbol is multiplied to the data to be transmitted at each MIMO antenna to exploit the MIMO antenna diversity, and at the receiver, the joint MIMO detection and chaos decoding is done by maximum likelihood decoding (MLD). The conventional chaos modulation suffers from bit error rate (BER) performance degradation, while the coding gain is obtained in the proposed scheme by the chaos modulation in MIMO. We evaluate the performances of the proposed scheme by an analysis and computer simulations.

    Full Text Available Future wireless communication systems can utilize the spatial properties of the wireless channel to enhance the spectral efficiency and therefore increases its channel capacity. This can be designed by deploying multiple antennas at both the transmitter side and receiver side. The basic measure of performance is the capacity of a channel; the maximum rate of communication for which arbitrarily small error probability can be achieved. The AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise channel introduces the notion of capacity through a heuristic argument. The AWGN channel is then used as a basic building block to check the capacity of wireless fading channels in contrast to the AWGN channel. There is no single definition of capacity for fading channels that is applicable in all situations. Several notions of capacity are developed, and together they form a systematic study of performance limits of fading channels. The various capacity measures allow us to observe clearly the various types of resources available in fading channels: degrees of freedom, power and diversity. The MIMO systems capacity can be enhanced linearly with large the number of antennas. This paper elaborates the study of MIMO system capacity using the AWGN Channel Model, Channel Capacity, Channel Fast Fading, Spatial Autocorrelation and Power delay profile for various channel environments.

    Full Text Available Closed-loop MIMO technique standardized in LTE can support different layer transmissions through precoding operation to match the channel multiplexing capability. However, the performance of the limited size codebook still needs to be evaluated in real channel environment for further insights. Based on the wideband MIMO channel measurement in a typical indoor scenario, capacity loss (CL of the limited size codebook relative to perfect precoding is studied first in two extreme channel conditions. The results show that current codebook design for single layer transmission is nearly capacity lossless, and the CL will increase with the number of transmitted layers. Furthermore, the capacity improvement of better codebook selection criterions is very limited compared to CL. Then we define the maximum capacity boost achieved by frequency domain layer adaption (FDLA and investigate its sensitivity to SNR and channel condition. To survey the effect of frequency domain channel variation on MIMO-OFDM system, we define a function to measure the fluctuation levels of the key channel metrics within a subband and reveal the inherent relationship between them. Finally, a capacity floor resulted as the feedback interval increases in frequency domain.

  8. Weighted-Sum-Rate-Maximizing Linear Transceiver Filters for the K-User MIMO Interference Channel

    CERN Document Server

    Shin, Joonwoo

    2012-01-01

    This letter is concerned with transmit and receive filter optimization for the K-user MIMO interference channel. Specifically, linear transmit and receive filter sets are designed which maximize the weighted sum rate while allowing each transmitter to utilize only the local channel state information. Our approach is based on extending the existing method of minimizing the weighted mean squared error (MSE) for the MIMO broadcast channel to the K-user interference channel at hand. For the case of the individual transmitter power constraint, however, a straightforward generalization of the existing method does not reveal a viable solution. It is in fact shown that there exists no closed-form solution for the transmit filter but simple one-dimensional parameter search yields the desired solution. Compared to the direct filter optimization using gradient-based search, our solution requires considerably less computational complexity and a smaller amount of feedback resources while achieving essentially the same lev...

    Full Text Available For simulations of nonstationary multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO Rayleigh fading channels in time-variant scattering environments, a novel channel simulator is proposed based on the superposition of chirp signals. This new method has the advantages of low complexity and implementation simplicity as the sum of sinusoids (SOS method. In order to reproduce realistic time varying statistics for dynamic channels, an efficient parameter computation method is also proposed for updating the frequency parameters of employed chirp signals. Simulation results indicate that the proposed simulator is effective in generating nonstationary MIMO channels with close approximation of the time-variant statistical characteristics in accordance with the expected theoretical counterparts.

In this letter, a simple proof is presented for the fact that the channel capacity increases with an increase in the number of receiving antennas. The proof is based on the famous capacity formula of Foschini and Gans with matrix theory.

    2007-05-01

    Full Text Available Due to the much different environment in satellite and terrestrial links, possibilities in and design of MIMO systems are rather different as well. After pointing out these differences and problems arising from them, two MIMO designs are shown rather well adapted to satellite link characteristics. Cooperative diversity seems to be applicable; its concept is briefly presented without a detailed discussion, leaving solving particular satellite problems to later work. On the other hand, a detailed discussion of polarization time-coded diversity (PTC is given. A physical-statistical model for dual-polarized satellite links is presented together with measuring results validating the model. The concept of 3D polarization is presented as well as briefly describing compact 3D-polarized antennas known from the literature and applicable in satellite links. A synthetic satellite-to-indoor link is constructed and its electromagnetic behavior is simulated via the FDTD (finite-difference time-domain method. Previous result of the authors states that in 3D-PTC situations, MIMO capacity can be about two times higher than SIMO (single-input multiple-output capacity while a diversity gain of nearly 2×3 is further verified via extensive FDTD computer simulation.

  13. Cyclic Communication and the Inseparability of MIMO Multi-way Relay Channels

    KAUST Repository

    Chaaban, Anas

    2015-10-27

    The K-user MIMO multi-way relay channel (Ychannel) consisting of K users with M antennas each and a common relay node with N antennas is studied in this paper. Each user wants to exchange messages with all the other users via the relay. A transmission strategy is proposed for this channel. The proposed strategy is based on two steps: channel diagonalization and cyclic communication. The channel diagonalization is applied by using zero-forcing beam-forming. After channel diagonalization, the channel is decomposed into parallel sub-channels. Cyclic communication is then applied, where signal-space alignment for network-coding is used over each sub-channel. The proposed strategy achieves the optimal DoF region of the channel if N M. To prove this, a new degrees-of-freedom outer bound is derived. As a by-product, we conclude that the MIMO Y-channel is not separable, i.e., independent coding on separate sub-channels is not enough, and one has to code jointly over several sub-channels.

    2005-01-01

    A lower bound of the rate in feedback channel from a receiver to a transmitter is presented for measured Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems based on the formulae of the open-loop and the closedloop MIMO capacity, under the assumptions of quasi-static block-fading MIMO channel, independent nondispersive fading between each transmit and receive antenna, sampling with the period equal to the reciprocal of the signal bandwidth at the receiver, and zero feedback delay. Through Monte Carlo simulations~ we numerically validate the existence of the lower bound and show numerical results of the bound for system design. Also, we conclude that, the Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) impacts little on the lower bound of the feedback rate for low antenna numbers, a closed-loop system with a feedback rate less than the lower bound is worse than a open-loop system, and the lower bound remains small with respect to the increase of antenna number for low SNRs. Finally, it is shown that the lower bound of the feedback rate and the conclusions are applicable to practical closed-loop MIMO systems.

    Full Text Available An optimal resource allocation strategy for MIMO relay system is considered in simultaneous wireless information and energy transfer network, where two users with multiple antennas communicate with each other assisted by an energy harvesting MIMO relay that gathers energy from the received signal by applying time switching scheme and forwards the received signal by using the harvesting energy. It is focused on the precoder design and resource allocation strategies for the system to allocate the resources among the nodes in decode-and-forward (DF mode. Specifically, optimal precoder design and energy transfer strategy in MIMO relay channel are firstly proposed. Then, we formulate the resource allocation optimization problem. The closed-form solutions for the time and power allocation are derived. It is revealed that the solution can flexibly allocate the resource for the MIMO relay channel to maximize the sum rate of the system. Simulation results demonstrated that the performance of the proposed algorithm outperforms the traditional fixed method.

    In this paper, we consider the feasibility of linear interference alignment (IA) for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels with constant coefficients for any number of users, antennas and streams per user. We combine algebraic geometry techniques with differential topology ones and prove much stronger results than those previously published on this topic. Specifically, we consider the input set (complex projective space of MIMO interference channels), the output set (precoder and decoder Grassmannians) and the solution set (channels, decoders and precoders satisfying the IA polynomial equations), not only as algebraic sets but also as smooth compact manifolds. The main result of the paper states that the linear alignment problem is feasible when the algebraic dimension of the solution variety is larger or equal than the dimension of the input space and the linear mapping between the tangent spaces of both smooth manifolds given by the first projection is surjective. If that mapping is not surjective,...

    2010-01-01

    This paper focuses on two-cell multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Gaussian interfering broadcast channels (MIMO-IFBC) with $K$ cooperating users on the cell-boundary of each BS. It corresponds to a downlink scenario for cellular networks with two base stations (BSs), and $K$ users equipped with Wi-Fi interfaces enabling to cooperate among users on a peer-to-peer basis. In this scenario, we propose a novel interference alignment (IA) technique exploiting user cooperation. Our proposed algorithm obtains the achievable degrees of freedom (DoF) of 2K when each BS and user have $M=K+1$ transmit antennas and $N=K$ receive antennas, respectively. Furthermore, the algorithm requires only a small amount of channel feedback information with the aid of the user cooperation channels. The simulations demonstrate that not only are the analytical results valid, but the achievable DoF of our proposed algorithm also outperforms those of conventional techniques.

    2009-01-01

    This paper examines linear beamforming methods for secure communications in a multiuser wiretap channel with a single transmitter, multiple legitimate receivers, and a single eavesdropper, where all nodes are equipped with multiple antennas. No information regarding the eavesdropper is presumed at the transmitter, and we examine both the broadcast MIMO downlink with independent information, and the multicast MIMO downlink with common information for all legitimate receivers. In both cases the information signal is transmitted with just enough power to guarantee a certain SINR at the desired receivers, while the remainder of the power is used to broadcast artificial noise. The artificial interference selectively degrades the passive eavesdropper's signal while remaining orthogonal to the desired receivers. We analyze the confidentiality provided by zero-forcing and optimal minimum-power beamforming designs for the broadcast channel, and optimal minimum-MSE beamformers for the multicast channel.

  19. An Improved Multicell MMSE Channel Estimation in a Massive MIMO System

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Massive MIMO is a promising technology to improve both the spectrum efficiency and the energy efficiency. The key problem that impacts the throughput of a massive MIMO system is the pilot contamination due to the nonorthogonality of the pilot sequences in different cells. Conventional channel estimation schemes cannot mitigate this problem effectively, and the computational complexity is increasingly becoming larger in views of the large number of antennas employed in a massive MIMO system. Furthermore, the channel estimation is always carried out with some ideal assumptions such as the complete knowledge of large-scale fading. In this paper, a new channel estimation scheme is proposed by utilizing interference cancellation and joint processing. Highly interfering users in neighboring cells are identified based on the estimation of large-scale fading and then included in the joint channel processing; this achieves a compromise between the effectiveness and efficiency of the channel estimation at a reasonable computational cost, and leads to an improvement in the overall system performance. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    2012-01-01

    Multi-antenna relaying has emerged as a promising technology to enhance the system performance in cellular networks. However, when precoding techniques are utilized to obtain multi-antenna gains, the system generally requires channel state information (CSI) at the transmitters. We consider a linear precoding scheme in a MIMO relaying broadcast channel with quantized CSI feedback from both two-hop links. With this scheme, each remote user feeds back its quantized CSI to the relay, and the relay sends back the quantized precoding information to the base station (BS). An upper bound on the rate loss due to quantized channel knowledge is first characterized. Then, in order to maintain the rate loss within a predetermined gap for growing SNRs, a strategy of scaling quantization quality of both two-hop links is proposed. It is revealed that the numbers of feedback bits of both links should scale linearly with the transmit power at the relay, while only the bit number of feedback from the relay to the BS needs to gr...

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Massive multiple-input multiple-output (massive-MIMO is foreseen as a potential technology for future 5G cellular communication networks due to its substantial benefits in terms of increased spectral and energy efficiency. These advantages of massive-MIMO are a consequence of equipping the base station (BS with quite a large number of antenna elements, thus resulting in an aggressive spatial multiplexing. In order to effectively reap the benefits of massive-MIMO, an adequate estimate of the channel impulse response (CIR between each transmit–receive link is of utmost importance. It has been established in the literature that certain specific multipath propagation environments lead to a sparse structured CIR in spatial and/or delay domains. In this paper, implicit training and compressed sensing based CIR estimation techniques are proposed for the case of massive-MIMO sparse uplink channels. In the proposed superimposed training (SiT based techniques, a periodic and low power training sequence is superimposed (arithmetically added over the information sequence, thus avoiding any dedicated time/frequency slots for the training sequence. For the estimation of such massive-MIMO sparse uplink channels, two greedy pursuits based compressed sensing approaches are proposed, viz: SiT based stage-wise orthogonal matching pursuit (SiT-StOMP and gradient pursuit (SiT-GP. In order to demonstrate the validity of proposed techniques, a performance comparison in terms of normalized mean square error (NCMSE and bit error rate (BER is performed with a notable SiT based least squares (SiT-LS channel estimation technique. The effect of channels’ sparsity, training-to-information power ratio (TIR and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR on BER and NCMSE performance of proposed schemes is thoroughly studied. For a simulation scenario of: 4 × 64 massive-MIMO with a channel sparsity level of 80 % and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR of 10 dB , a performance gain of 18 dB and 13 d

    2011-01-01

    The exact complexity analysis of the basic sphere decoder for general space-time codes applied to multi-input multi-output (MIMO) wireless channel is known to be difficult. In this work, we shed the light on the computational complexity of sphere decoding for the quasi-static, LAttice Space-Time (LAST) coded MIMO channel. Specifically, we derive the asymptotic tail distribution of the decoder's computational complexity in the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime. For the uncoded $M\\times N$ MIMO channel (e.g., V-BLAST), the analysis in [6] revealed that the tail distribution of such a decoder is of a Pareto-type with tail exponent that is equivalent to $N-M+1$. In our analysis, we show that the tail exponent of the sphere decoder's complexity distribution is equivalent to the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff achieved by LAST coding and lattice decoding schemes. This leads to extend the channel's tradeoff to include the decoding complexity. Moreover, we show analytically how minimum-mean square-error decisio...

    Kumar, K Raj; Moustakas, A L

    2008-01-01

    Linear receivers are considered as an attractive low-complexity alternative to optimal processing for multi-antenna MIMO communications. In this paper we characterize the performance of MIMO linear receivers in two different asymptotic regimes. For fixed number of antennas, we investigate the Diversity-Multiplexing Tradeoff (DMT), which captures the outage probability (decoding block-error probability) in the limit of high SNR. For fixed SNR, we characterize the outage probability for a large (but finite) number of antennas. As far as the DMT is concerned, we report a negative result: we show that both linear Zero-Forcing (ZF) and linear Minimum Mean-Square Error (MMSE) receivers achieve the same DMT, which is largely suboptimal even though outer coding and decoding is performed across the antennas. We also provide an approximate quantitative analysis of the different behavior of the MMSE and ZF receivers at finite rate and non-asymptotic SNR, and show that while the ZF receiver achieves poor diversity at any...

    2003-01-01

    Multiple input multiple output-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) is one of the most promising scheme for achieving high data rate and large system capacity over wireless networks. This paper addresses the error performance analysis of the Space-time trellis code (STTC) MIMO-OFDM systems over quasistatic, frequency selective Rayleigh fading channels. Using the Chernoff bound combined with transfer function bounding technique, we provide a new analytical method. To quantify the upper bound of the error performance, we derive the probability density function (pdf) of the frequency domain fading channel and make a novel approximation to the Euclidean distance. Monte Carlo simulation results indicate that the derived upper bounds are quite accurate in a broad range of Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).

    2016-10-01

    In this letter, we develop a low-complexity transceiver design, referred to as semi-random beam pairing (SRBP), for sparse multipath massive MIMO channels. By exploring a sparse representation of the MIMO channel in the virtual angular domain, we generate a set of transmit-receive beam pairs in a semi-random way to support the simultaneous transmission of multiple data streams. These data streams can be easily separated at the receiver via a successive interference cancelation (SIC) technique, and the power allocation among them are optimized based on the classical waterfilling principle. The achieved degree of freedom (DoF) and capacity of the proposed approach are analyzed. Simulation results show that, compared to the conventional singular value decomposition (SVD)-based method, the proposed transceiver design can achieve near-optimal DoF and capacity with a significantly lower computational complexity.

    Well-controlled resource allocation is crucial for promoting the performance of multiple input multiple output or-thogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. Recent studies have focused primarily on traditional cen-tralized systems or distributed antenna systems (DASs), and usually assumed that one sub-carrier or sub-channel is exclusively occupied by one user. To promote system performance, we propose a sub-channel shared resource allocation algorithm for multi- user distributed MIMO-OFDM systems. Each sub-channel can be shared by multiple users in the algorithm, which is different from previous algorithms. The algorithm assumes that each user communicates with only two best ports in the system. On each sub-carrier, it allocates a sub-channel in descending order, which means one sub-channel that can minimize signal to leakage plus noise ratio (SLNR) loss is deleted until the number of remaining sub-channels is equal to that of receiving antennas. If there are still sub-channels after all users are processed, these sub-channels will be allocated to users who can maximize the SLNR gain. Simulations show that compared to other algorithms, our proposed algorithm has better capacity performance and enables the system to provide service to more users under the same capacity constraints.

    This paper studies the sum rate performance of two low complexity eigenmode-based transmission techniques for the MIMO broadcast channel, employing greedy semi-orthogonal user selection (SUS). The first approach, termed ZFDPC-SUS, is based on zero-forcing dirty paper coding; the second approach, termed ZFBF-SUS, is based on zero-forcing beamforming. We first employ new analytical methods to prove that as the number of users K grows large, the ZFDPC-SUS approach can achieve the optimal sum rate scaling of the MIMO broadcast channel. We also prove that the average sum rates of both techniques converge to the average sum capacity of the MIMO broadcast channel for large K. In addition to the asymptotic analysis, we investigate the sum rates achieved by ZFDPC-SUS and ZFBF-SUS for finite K, and show that ZFDPC-SUS has significant performance advantages. Our results also provide key insights into the benefit of multiple receive antennas, and the effect of the SUS algorithm. In particular, we show that whilst multiple receive antennas only improves the asymptotic sum rate scaling via the second-order behavior of the multi-user diversity gain; for finite K, the benefit can be very significant. We also show the interesting result that the semi-orthogonality constraint imposed by SUS, whilst facilitating a very low complexity user selection procedure, asymptotically does not reduce the multi-user diversity gain in either first (log K) or second-order (loglog K) terms.

    A 2-D Shooting and Bouncing Ray-tracing method (SBR) is used to analyze the different antenna array structure effect on the water-filling Capacity Complementary Cumulative Distribution Functions (CCDFS) of indoor Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) channel. The results have shown that in NLOS indoor environment different antenna array structures affect on the CCDFS differently. The CCDFS of MIMO systems with antenna spacing 5λ change slightly with antenna array structures and all approach the in independent and identically distribution (i.i.d.) rayleigh channel water-filling capacity. When antenna spacing decreased to 0.5λ, the capacities of MIMO systems drop also, and change with antenna array structures greatly. The results on outage water-filling capacity also show that there exist a fixed relationship that i.i.d. rayleigh channel capacity is larger than the capacity equipped with linear antenna array which is larger than the capacity equipped with rectangular antenna array and the capacity equipped with circular antenna array.

    Full Text Available For multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO wireless communication system with minimum mean square error (MMSE detection, a new scheme of power allocation between pilot and data symbols is investigated under MMSE channel estimation in this paper. First, we propose a novel soft-output MMSE MIMO detector by taking into consideration the channel estimation error. Then, through the application of random matrix theorem, we propose an efficient scheme for power allocation between pilot and data symbols which maximizes the lower bound of postprocessing signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR for MIMO systems with equal number of transmitter and receiver antennas. We have proven the existence and uniqueness of the proposed optimal power allocation settings. Furthermore, our analysis shows that the proposed power allocation is also valid and applicable for those MIMO systems with unequal number of transmitter and receiver antennas. Finally, our extensive simulation results have validated this novel power allocation scheme.

    2011-01-01

    This paper presents a tool for the analysis, and simulation of direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation in wireless mobile communication systems over the fading channel. It reviews two methods of Direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm. The standard Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC) can be obtained from the subspace based methods. In improved MUSIC procedure called Cyclic MUSIC, it can automatically classify the signals as desired and undesired based on the known spectral correlation property and estimate only the desired signal's DOA. In this paper, the DOA estimation algorithm using the de-noising pre-processing based on time-frequency conversion analysis was proposed, and the performances were analyzed. This is focused on the improvement of DOA estimation at a lower SNR and interference environment. This paper provides a fairly complete image of the performance and statistical efficiency of each of above two methods with QPSK signal.

    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems hold the potential to drastically improve the spectral efficiency and link reliability in future wireless communications systems. A particularly promising candidate for next-generation fixed and mobile wireless systems is the combination of MIMO technology with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). OFDM has become the standard method because of its advantages over single carrier modulation schemes on multipath, frequency selective fading channels. Doppler frequency shifts are expected in fast-moving environments, causing the channel to vary in time, that degrades the performance of OFDM systems. In this paper, we present a time-varying channel modeling and estimation method based on the Discrete Evolutionary Transform to obtain a complete characterization of MIMO-OFDM channels. Performance of the proposed method is evaluated and compared on different levels of channel noise and Doppler frequency shifts.

  15. Performance Analysis of Compact FD-MIMO Antenna Arrays in a Correlated Environment

    Full dimension multiple-input-multiple-output (FDMIMO) is one of the key technologies proposed in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) for the fifth generation (5G) communication systems. The reason can be attributed to its ability to yield significant performance gains through the deployment of active antenna elements at the base station in the vertical as well as the conventional horizontal directions, enabling several elevation beamforming strategies. The resulting improvement in spectral efficiency largely depends on the orthogonality of the sub-channels constituting the FD-MIMO system. Accommodating a large number of antenna elements with sufficient spacing poses several constraints for practical implementation, making it imperative to consider compact antenna arrangements that minimize the overall channel correlation. Two such configurations considered in this work are the uniform linear array (ULA) and the uniform circular array (UCA) of antenna ports, where each port is mapped to a group of physical antenna elements arranged in the vertical direction. The generalized analytical expression for the spatial correlation function (SCF) for the UCA is derived, exploiting results on spherical harmonics and Legendre polynomials. The mutual coupling between antenna dipoles is accounted for and the resulting SCF is also presented. The second part of this work compares the spatial correlation and mutual information (MI) performance of the ULA and UCA configurations in the 3GPP 3D urban-macro and urban-micro cell scenarios, utilizing results from Random Matrix Theory (RMT) on the deterministic equivalent of the MI for the Kronecker channel model. Simulation results study the performance patterns of the two arrays as a function of several channel and array parameters and identify applications and environments suitable for the deployment of each array.

    2008-01-01

    For flat fast fading Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) channels, this paper presents a sampling based channel estimation and an iterative Particle Filter (PF) signal detection scheme. The channel estimation is comprised of two parts: the adaptive iterative update on the channel distribution mean and a regular update on the "adaptability" via pilot. In the detection procedure, the PF is employed to produce the optimal decision given the known received signal and the sequence of the channel samples, where an asymptotic optimal importance density is constructed, and in terms of the asymptotic update order, the Parallel Importance Update (PIU) and the Serial Importance Update (SIU) scheme are performed respectively. The simulation results show that for the given fading channel, if an appropriate pilot mode is selected, the proposed scheme is more robust than the conventional Kalman filter based superimposed detection scheme.

    Full Text Available Multi-input multioutput (MIMO technique provides a promising solution to enhance the performance of wireless communication systems. In this paper, we consider antenna correlation at the transmitter in practical cognitive MIMO systems. What is more, a game-theoretic framework is conducted to analyze the optimum beamforming and power allocation such that each user maximizes its own rate selfishly under the transmitting power constraint and the primary user (PU interference constraint. The design of the cognitive MIMO system is formulated as a noncooperative game, where the secondary users (SUs compete with each other over the resources made available by the PUs. Interestingly, as the correlation parameter grows, the utility degrades. Nash equilibrium is considered as the solution of this game. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can converge quickly and clearly outperforms the strategy without game.

    Full Text Available In order to satisfy the stringent demand for an accurate prediction of MIMO channel capacity and diversity performance in wireless communications, more effective and suitable models that account for real antenna radiation behavior have to be taken into account. One of the main challenges is the accurate modeling of antenna correlation that is directly related to the amount of channel capacity or diversity gain which might be achieved in multi element antenna configurations. Therefore spherical wave theory in electromagnetics is a well known technique to express antenna far fields by means of a compact field expansion with a reduced number of unknowns that was recently applied to derive an analytical approach in the computation of antenna pattern correlation. In this paper we present a novel and efficient computational technique to determine antenna pattern correlation based on the evaluation of the surface current distribution by means of a spherical mode expansion.

    We consider optical wireless communication which can be utilized for illumination and communication by relying on lighting devices. Due to the limited bandwidth of optical sources, it is challenging to achieve high data rate in optical wireless systems. In order to obtain a multiplexing gain and high spectral efficiency, we design an optical multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system utilizing a singular value decomposition-based spatial multiplexing and adaptive modulation. We note that the conventional allocation method in radio frequency MIMO channels cannot be applied directly to the optical intensity channels. In this paper, we generalize the result of power allocation method in [1] for arbitrary number of transmit and receive antennas in optical wireless MIMO systems. Based on three constraints, namely, the nonnegativity, the aggregate optical power, and the bit error rate requirement, we propose a novel method to allocate the optical power, the offset value, and the modulation size for maximum sum rate. From some selected simulation results, we show that our proposed allocation method gives a better spectral efficiency than the method that allocates the optical power equally for each data stream. © 2011 IEEE.

    We study the converse and achievability for the degrees of freedom of the multicellular multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiple access channel (MAC) with constant channel coefficients. We assume L>1 homogeneous cells with K>0 users per cell where the users have M antennas and the base stations are equipped with N antennas. The degrees of freedom outer bound for this L-cell and K-user MIMO MAC is formulated. The characterized outer bound uses insight from a limit on the total degrees of freedom for the L-cell heterogeneous MIMO network. We also show through an example that a scheme selecting a transmitter and performing partial message sharing outperforms a multiple distributed transmission strategy in terms of the total degrees of freedom. Simple linear schemes attaining the outer bound (i.e., those achieving the optimal degrees of freedom) are explores for a few cases. The conditions for the required spatial dimensions attaining the optimal degrees of freedom are characterized in terms of K, L, and th...

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Massive MIMO is one of the most promising technologies for the fifth generation (5G mobile communication systems. In order to better assess the system performance, it is essential to build a corresponding channel model accurately. In this paper, a three-dimension (3D two-cylinder regular-shaped geometry-based stochastic model (GBSM for non-isotropic scattering massive MIMO channels is proposed. Based on geometric method, all the scatters are distributed on the surface of a cylinder as equivalent scatters. Non-stationary property is that one antenna has its own visible area of scatters by using a virtual sphere. The proposed channel model is evaluated by comparing with the 3GPP 3D channel model [1]. The statistical properties are investigated. Simulation results show that close agreements are achieved between the characteristics of the proposed channel model and those of the 3GPP channel model, which justify the correctness of the proposed model. The model has advantages such as good applicability.

    In this paper, application of Sequential Quasi Monte Carlo (SQMC) to blind channel and symbol joint estimation in cooperative Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system is proposed, which does not need to transmit training symbol and can save the power and channel bandwidth. Additionally, an improved version of SQMC algorithm by taking advantage of current received signal is discussed. Simulation results show that the SQMC method outperforms the Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) methods, and the incorporation of current received signal improves the performance of the SQMC obviously.

    This paper illustrates a large-scale MIMO propagation channel measurement in a real life environment and evaluates throughput performance of various MIMO schemes in that environment. For that purpose, 4 × 4 MIMO transceivers and a novel spatial scanner are fabricated for wideband MIMO channel measurements in the 5GHz band. A total of more than 50, 000 spatial samples in an area of 150m2, which includes a bedroom, a Japanese room, a hallway, and the living and dining areas, are taken in a real residential home environment. Statistical properties of the propagation channel and throughput performance of various MIMO schemes are evaluated by using measured data. Propagation measurement results show large dynamic channel variations occurring in a real environment in which statistical properties of the channel, such as frequency correlation and spatial correlation are not stationary any more, and become functions of the SNR. Furthermore, evaluation of throughput shows that although MIMO schemes outperform the SISO system in most areas, open loop systems perform badly in the far areas with low SNR. Paying for the cost of CSI or partial CSI at Tx, closed loop and hybrid systems have superior performance compared to other schemes, especially in reasonable SNR areas ranging from 10dB to 30dB. Spatial correlation, which is common in Japanese wooden residences, is also found to be a dominant factor causing throughput degradation of the open loop MIMO schemes.

    In this paper, the effect of channel estimation errors upon the Zero Forcing (ZF) precoding Multiple Input Multiple Output Broadcast (MIMO BC) systems was studied. Based on the two kinds of Gaussian estimation error models, the performance analysis is conducted under different power allocation strategies. Analysis and simulation show that if the covariance of channel estimation errors is independent of the received Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), imperfect channel knowledge deteriorates the sum capacity and the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance severely. However, under the situation of orthogonal training and the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) channel estimation, the sum capacity and BER performance are consistent with those of the perfect Channel State Information (CSI)with only a performance degradation.

    2009-01-01

    Interference alignment (IA) has been shown to provide all users of an interference channel with half the capacity achievable in an interference free point-to-point link resulting in linear sum capacity scaling with the number of users in the high SNR regime. The linear scaling is achieved by cooperatively precoding transmitted signals to align interference subspaces at the receivers, effectively reducing the number of discernible interferers. The theory of IA was derived under assumptions about the richness of the propagation channel; practical channels do not guarantee such ideal characteristics. This paper presents the first experimental study of IA in measured multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) interference channels. We show that IA achieves the claimed scaling factors in a wide variety of measured channel settings for a 3 user, 2 antennas per node setup. In addition to verifying the claimed performance, we characterize the effect of several realistic syst...

The effects of carrier frequency offset (CFO, sampling frequency offset (SFO, and channel impulse responses (CIRs on the received samples are analyzed and explored to develop the turbo decoding process and vector recursive least squares (RLSs algorithm for joint CIR, CFO, and SFO tracking. For burst transmission, with initial estimates derived from the preamble, the proposed scheme can operate without the need of pilot tones during the data segment. Simulation results show that the proposed turbo joint channel estimation, synchronization, and decoding scheme offers fast convergence and low mean squared error (MSE performance over quasistatic Rayleigh multipath fading channels. The proposed scheme can be used in a coded MIMO-OFDM transceiver in the presence of multipath fading, carrier frequency offset, and sampling frequency offset to provide a bit error rate (BER performance comparable to that in an ideal case of perfect synchronization and channel estimation over a wide range of SFO values.

Creation of a propagation environment inside an anechoic chamber requires unconventional radio channel modelling, namely, a specific mapping of the original models onto the probe antennas. We introduce two novel methods to generate fading emulator channel coefficients; the prefaded signals synthesis and the plane wave synthesis. To verify both methods we present a set of simulation results. We also show that the geometric description is a prerequisite for the original channel model.

    The spatial correlation extensively exists in the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) free space optical (FSO) communication systems due to the channel fading and the antenna space limitation. Wilkinson's method was utilized to investigate the impact of spatial correlation on the MIMO FSO communication system employing multipulse pulse-position modulation. Simulation results show that the existence of spatial correlation reduces the ergodic channel capacity, and the reception diversity is more competent to resist this kind of performance degradation.

    2014-10-01

    This paper investigates the uplink achievable rates of massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems in Ricean fading channels, using maximal-ratio combining (MRC) and zero-forcing (ZF) receivers, assuming perfect and imperfect channel state information (CSI). In contrast to previous relevant works, the fast fading MIMO channel matrix is assumed to have an arbitrary-rank deterministic component as well as a Rayleigh-distributed random component. We derive tractable expressions for the achievable uplink rate in the large-antenna limit, along with approximating results that hold for any finite number of antennas. Based on these analytical results, we obtain the scaling law that the users' transmit power should satisfy, while maintaining a desirable quality of service. In particular, it is found that regardless of the Ricean $K$-factor, in the case of perfect CSI, the approximations converge to the same constant value as the exact results, as the number of base station antennas, $M$, grows large, while the transmit power of each user can be scaled down proportionally to $1/M$. If CSI is estimated with uncertainty, the same result holds true but only when the Ricean $K$-factor is non-zero. Otherwise, if the channel experiences Rayleigh fading, we can only cut the transmit power of each user proportionally to $1/\\sqrt M$. In addition, we show that with an increasing Ricean $K$-factor, the uplink rates will converge to fixed values for both MRC and ZF receivers.

    This paper considers a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) receiver with very low-precision analog-to-digital convertors (ADCs) with the goal of developing massive MIMO antenna systems that require minimal cost and power. Previous studies demonstrated that the training duration should be {\\em relatively long} to obtain acceptable channel state information. To address this requirement, we adopt a joint channel-and-data (JCD) estimation method based on Bayes-optimal inference. This method yields minimal mean square errors with respect to the channels and payload data. We develop a Bayes-optimal JCD estimator using a recent technique based on approximate message passing. We then present an analytical framework to study the theoretical performance of the estimator in the large-system limit. Simulation results confirm our analytical results, which allow the efficient evaluation of the performance of quantized massive MIMO systems and provide insights into effective system design.

    2011-01-01

    In this paper, the performance limit of lattice sequential decoder for lattice space-time coded MIMO channel is analysed. We determine the rates achievable by lattice coding and sequential decoding applied to such channel. The diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) under lattice sequential decoding is derived as a function of its parameter---the bias term. The bias parameter is critical for controlling the amount of computations required at the decoding stage. Achieving low decoding complexity requires increasing the value of the bias term. However, this is done at the expense of losing the optimal tradeoff of the channel. We show how such a decoder can bridge the gap between lattice decoder and low complexity decoders. Moreover, the computational complexity of lattice sequential decoder is analysed. Specifically, we derive the tail distribution of the decoder's computational complexity in the high signal-to-noise ratio regime. Similar to the conventional sequential decoder used in discrete memoryless channel,...

  14. Performance of Antenna Selection in MIMO System Using Channel Reciprocity with Measured Data

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The channel capacity of MIMO system increases as a function of antenna pairs between transmitter and receiver but it suffers from multiple expensive RF chains. To reduce cost of RF chains, antenna selection (AS method can offer a good tradeoff between expense and performance. For a transmitting AS system, channel state information (CSI feedback is required to choose the best subset of available antennas. However, the delay and error in feedback channel are the most dominant factors to degrade performances. In this paper, the concept of AS method using reciprocal CSI instead of feedback channel is proposed. The capacity performance of proposed system is investigated by own developing Testbed. The obtained results indicate that the reciprocity technique offers a capacity close to a system with perfect CSI and gains a higher capacity than a system without AS method. This benefit is from 0.9 to 2.2 bps/Hz at SNR 10 dB.

  15. Sum-Rate Enhancement in Multiuser MIMO Decode-and-Forward Relay Broadcasting Channel with Energy Harvesting Relays

    KAUST Repository

    2016-09-20

    In this paper, we consider a multiuser multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) decode-and-forward (DF) relay broadcasting channel (BC) with single source, multiple energy harvesting (EH) relays and multiple destinations. All the nodes are equipped with multiple antennas. The EH and information decoding (ID) tasks at the relays and destinations are separated over the time, which is termed as the time switching (TS) scheme. As optimal solutions for the sum-rate maximization problems of BC channels and the MIMO interference channels are hard to obtain, the end-to-end sum rate maximization problem of a multiuser MIMO DF relay BC channel is even harder. In this paper, we propose to tackle a simplified problem where we employ the block diagonalization (BD) procedure at the source, and we mitigate the interference between the relaydestination channels using an algorithm similar to the BD method. In order to show the relevance of our low complex proposed solution, we compare it to the minimum mean-square error (MMSE) solution that was shown in the literature to be equivalent to the solution of the sum-rate maximization in MIMO broadcasting interfering channels. We also investigate the time division multiple access (TDMA) solution which separates all the information transmissions from the source to the relays and from the relays to the destinations over time. We provide numerical results to show the relevance of our proposed solution, in comparison with the no co-channel interference (CCI) case, the TDMA based solution and the MMSE based solution.

  16. MIMO Multiple Access Channel with an Arbitrarily Varying Eavesdropper

    He, Xiang; Yener, Aylin

    2012-01-01

    A two-transmitter Gaussian multiple access wiretap channel with multiple antennas at each of the nodes is investigated. The channel matrices at the legitimate terminals are fixed and revealed to all the terminals, whereas the channel matrix of the eavesdropper is arbitrarily varying and only known to the eavesdropper. The secrecy degrees of freedom (s.d.o.f.) region under a strong secrecy constraint is characterized. A transmission scheme that orthogonalizes the transmit signals of the two users at the intended receiver and uses a single-user wiretap code is shown to be sufficient to achieve the s.d.o.f. region. The converse involves establishing an upper bound on a weighted-sum-rate expression. This is accomplished by using induction, where at each step one combines the secrecy and multiple-access constraints associated with an adversary eavesdropping a carefully selected group of sub-channels.

  18. Compressive sensing for feedback reduction in MIMO broadcast channels

    KAUST Repository

    Eltayeb, Mohammed E.

    2014-09-01

    In multi-antenna broadcast networks, the base stations (BSs) rely on the channel state information (CSI) of the users to perform user scheduling and downlink transmission. However, in networks with large number of users, obtaining CSI from all users is arduous, if not impossible, in practice. This paper proposes channel feedback reduction techniques based on the theory of compressive sensing (CS), which permits the BS to obtain CSI with acceptable recovery guarantees under substantially reduced feedback overhead. Additionally, assuming noisy CS measurements at the BS, inexpensive ways for improving post-CS detection are explored. The proposed techniques are shown to reduce the feedback overhead, improve CS detection at the BS, and achieve a sum-rate close to that obtained by noiseless dedicated feedback channels.

  19. Time-Varying FIR Equalization for MIMO Transmission over Doubly Selective Channels

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available We propose time-varying FIR equalization techniques for spatial multiplexing-based multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO transmission over doubly selective channels. The doubly selective channel is approximated using the basis expansion model (BEM, and equalized by means of time-varying FIR filters designed according to the BEM. By doing so, the time-varying deconvolution problem is converted into a two-dimensional time-invariant deconvolution problem in the time-invariant coefficients of the channel BEM and the time-invariant coefficients of the equalizer BEM. The timevarying FIR equalizers are derived based on either the matched filtering criterion, or the linear minimum mean-square error (MMSE or the zero-forcing (ZF criteria. In addition to the linear equalizers, the decision feedback equalizer (DFE is proposed. The DFE can be designed according to two different scenarios. In the first scenario, the DFE is based on feeding back previously estimated symbols from one particular antenna at a time. Whereas, in the second scenario, the previously estimated symbols from all transmit antennas are fed back together. The performance of the proposed equalizers in the context of MIMO transmission is analyzed in terms of numerical simulations.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available In this work an iterative time domain Least Squares (LS based channel estimation method using superimposed training (ST for a Multiple Input Multiple Output Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM system over time varying frequency selective fading channels is proposed. The performance of the channel estimator is analyzed in terms of the Mean Square Estimation Error (MSEE and its impact on the uncoded Bit Error Rate (BER of the MIMO-OFDM system is studied. A new selection criterion for the training sequences that jointly optimizes the MSEE and the BER of the OFDM system is proposed. Chirp based sequences are proposed and shown to satisfy the same. These are compared with the other sequences proposed in the literature and are found to yield a superior performance. The sequences, one for each transmitting antenna, offers fairness through providing equal interference in all the data carriers unlike earlier proposals. The effectiveness of the mathematical analysis presented is demonstrated through a comparison with the simulation studies. Experimental studies are carried out to study and validate the improved performance of the proposed scheme. The scheme is applied to the IEEE 802.16e OFDM standard and a case is made with the required design of the sequence.

    Letzepis, Nick

    2008-01-01

    The free-space optical channel has the potential to facilitate inexpensive, wireless communication with fiber-like bandwidth under short deployment timelines. However, atmospheric effects can significantly degrade the reliability of a free-space optical link. In particular, atmospheric turbulence causes random fluctuations in the irradiance of the received laser beam, commonly referred to as scintillation. The scintillation process is slow compared to the large data rates typical of optical transmission. As such, we adopt a quasi-static block fading model and study the outage probability of the channel under the assumption of orthogonal pulse-position modulation. We investigate the mitigation of scintillation through the use of multiple lasers and multiple apertures, thereby creating a multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) channel. Non-ideal photodetection is also assumed such that the combined shot noise and thermal noise are considered as signal-independent Additive Gaussian white noise. Assuming perfect re...

    CERN Document Server

    Cho, Sungyoon; Huang, Kaibin; Kim, Dongku; Lau, Vincent K N; Seo, Hanbyul; Kim, Byounghoon

    2011-01-01

    Interference alignment (IA) is a joint-transmission technique that achieves the capacity of the interference channel for high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). Most prior work on IA is based on the impractical assumption that perfect and global channel-state information(CSI) is available at all transmitters. To implement IA, each receiver has to feed back CSI to all interferers, resulting in overwhelming feedback overhead. In particular, the sum feedback rate of each receiver scales quadratically with the number of users even if the quantized CSI is fed back. To substantially suppress feedback overhead, this paper focuses on designing efficient arrangements of feedback links, called feedback topologies, under the IA constraint. For the multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) K-user interference channel, we propose the feedback topology that supports sequential CSI exchange (feedback and feedforward) between transmitters and receivers so as to achieve IA progressively. This feedback topology is shown to reduce the ...

  5. On the Optimality of Opportunistic Interference Alignment in 3-Transmitter MIMO Interference Channels

    CERN Document Server

    Lee, Jung Hoon; Love, David J

    2011-01-01

    In this paper, we propose opportunistic interference alignment (OIA) for three-transmitter multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference channels (ICs). In the proposed OIA scheme, each transmitter has its own user group that consists of $K$ users, and each transmitter opportunistically selects the user whose received interference signals are most aligned. Thus, three-transmitter MIMO IC is opportunistically constructed by three transmitters and their selected users. Contrary to conventional IA, perfect channel information for all of the interference links is not required at the transmitter. Each user just needs to feed back one scalar value in the proposed OIA scheme. When the number of receive antennas is $N_R$ (with $N_R=2M$) and the number of transmit antennas is $N_T$ (with $N_T\\ge M$), we prove that each transmitter can achieve $M$ degrees of freedom (DoF) as the number of users in each group goes to infinity ($K\\to\\infty$), in comparison with the $\\frac{2M}{3}$ DoF known to be achievable in the th...

    2008-01-01

    A multi-hop relay channel with multiple antenna terminals in a quasi-static slow fading environment is considered. For both full-duplex and half-duplex relays the fundamental diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) is analyzed. It is shown that, while decode-and-forward (DF) relaying achieves the optimal DMT in the full-duplex relay scenario, the dynamic decode-and-forward (DDF) protocol is needed to achieve the optimal DMT if the relay is constrained to half-duplex operation. For the latter case, static protocols are considered as well, and the corresponding achievable DMT performance is characterized.

    Two major issues are facing today s wireless communications evolution: -Spectrum scarcity: Need for more bandwidth. As a solution, the Cognitive Radio (CR) paradigm, where secondary users (unlicensed) share the spectrum with licensed users, was introduced. -Energy consumption and CO2 emission: The ICT produces 2% of global CO2 emission (equivalent to the aviation industry emission). The cellular networks produces 0.2%. As solution energy efficient systems should be designed rather than traditional spectral efficient systems. In this work, an energy efficient power allocation framework based on maximizing the average EE per parallel channel is presented.

  8. Robust Transceiver Design for AF MIMO Relay Systems with Column Correlations

    Xing, Chengwen; Wu, Yik-Chung; Ma, Shaodan; Kuang, Jingming

    2012-01-01

    In this paper, we investigate the robust transceiver design for dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) MIMO relay systems with Gaussian distributed channel estimation errors. Aiming at maximizing the mutual information under imperfect channel state information (CSI), source precoder at source and forwarding matrix at the relay are jointly optimized. Using some elegant attributes of matrix-monotone functions, the structures of the optimal solutions are derived first. Then based on the derived structure an iterative waterfilling solution is proposed. Several existing algorithms are shown to be special cases of the proposed solution. Finally, the effectiveness of the proposed robust design is demonstrated by simulation results.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available The waveforms used in Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR should have a large time-bandwidth product and good ambiguity function performance. A scheme to design multiple orthogonal MIMO SAR Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM chirp waveforms by combinational sparse matrix and correlation optimization is proposed. First, the problem of MIMO SAR waveform design amounts to the associated design of hopping frequency and amplitudes. Then a iterative exhaustive search algorithm is adopted to optimally design the code matrix with the constraints minimizing the block correlation coefficient of sparse matrix and the sum of cross-correlation peaks. And the amplitudes matrix are adaptively designed by minimizing the cross-correlation peaks with the genetic algorithm. Additionally, the impacts of waveform number, hopping frequency interval and selectable frequency index are also analyzed. The simulation results verify the proposed scheme can design multiple orthogonal large time-bandwidth product OFDM chirp waveforms with low cross-correlation peak and sidelobes and it improves ambiguity performance.

  10. An Intelligent Channel Estimation Approach for MIMO-OFDM Systems using Meta-heuristic Optimization Algorithm

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    K. Vidhya

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available This research study mainly focuses to develop an efficient channel estimation approach through swarm intelligence approach with lesser computational complexity. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM is a modulation approach used to fight with the selection of frequency of the transmission channels to attain high data rate without any disturbances. OFDM principle is to gain popularity in the wireless transmission area. OFDM is united with antenna at the transmitter and receiver to amplify the variety gain and to improve the system capacity on time-variant and frequency selective channels, ensuing in a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO pattern. Least Square (LS and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE approaches are the most commonly used channel estimation techniques. In LS, the estimation process is simple but the problem is that it has high mean square error. In Low SNR, the MMSE is better than that of LS, but its main problem is its high computational complexity. In order to overcome the above said problems, a novel method is proposed in this research study which combines LS and MMSE. In this study improved PSO is introduced to select the best channel. Also that this proposed approach is more efficient and also requires less time to estimate the best channel when compared with other techniques. The experimental results show the performance of the proposed channel estimation method over the existing methods.

  11. A Differential MIMO SC-FDE Transceiver Design over Multipath Fast Fading Channels

    Science.gov (United States)

    Deng, Juinn-Horng; Hwang, Jeng-Kuang

    In this paper, we propose a new differential MIMO single-carrier system with frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE) aided by the insertion of cyclic prefix. This block transmission system not only inherits all the merits of the SISO SC-FDE system, but is also equipped with a differential space-time block coding (DSTBC) such as to combat the fast-changing frequency selective fading channels without the needs to estimate and then compensate the channel effects. Hence, for practical applications, it has the additional merits of decoding simplicity and robustness against high mobility transmission environments. Computer simulations show that the proposed system can provide diversity benefit as the non-differential system does, while greatly reducing the receiver complexity.

  12. Sphere decoding complexity exponent for decoding full rate codes over the quasi-static MIMO channel

    CERN Document Server

    2011-01-01

    In the setting of quasi-static multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, we consider the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) asymptotic complexity required by the sphere decoding (SD) algorithm for decoding a large class of full rate linear space-time codes. With SD complexity having random fluctuations induced by the random channel, noise and codeword realizations, the introduced SD complexity exponent manages to concisely describe the computational reserves required by the SD algorithm to achieve arbitrarily close to optimal decoding performance. Bounds and exact expressions for the SD complexity exponent are obtained for the decoding of large families of codes with arbitrary performance characteristics. For the particular example of decoding the recently introduced threaded cyclic division algebra (CDA) based codes -- the only currently known explicit designs that are uniformly optimal with respect to the diversity multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) -- the SD complexity exponent is shown to take a particularly...

  13. Secrecy Degrees of Freedom of MIMO Broadcast Channels with Delayed CSIT

    CERN Document Server

    Yang, Sheng; Piantanida, Pablo; Shamai, Shlomo

    2011-01-01

    The degrees of freedom (DoF) of the two-user Gaussian multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channel with confidential message (BCC) is studied under the assumption that delayed channel state information (CSI) is available at the transmitter. We characterize the optimal secrecy DoF (SDoF) region and show that it can be achieved by a simple artificial noise alignment (ANA) scheme. The proposed scheme sends the confidential messages superposed with the artificial noise over several time slots. Exploiting delayed CSI, the transmitter aligns the signal in such a way that the useful message can be extracted at the intended receiver but is completely drowned by the artificial noise at the unintended receiver. The proposed scheme can be interpreted as a non-trivial extension of Maddah-Ali Tse (MAT) scheme and enables us to quantify the resource overhead, or equivalently the DoF loss, to be paid for the secrecy communications.

    2017-02-09

    In this paper, we consider a multiuser multiple- input multiple-output (MIMO) decode-and-forward (DF) relay broadcasting channel (BC) with single source, multiple energy harvesting relays and multiple destinations. Since the end-to-end sum rate maximization problem is intractable, we tackle a simplified problem where we maximize the sum of the harvested energy at the relays, we employ the block diagonalization (BD) procedure at the source, and we mitigate the interference between the relay- destination channels. The interference mitigation at the destinations is managed in two ways: either to fix the interference covariance matrices at the destination and update them at each iteration until convergence, or to cancel the interference using an algorithm similar to the BD method. We provide numerical results to show the relevance of our proposed solution.

  18. Two-Way Training Design for Discriminatory Channel Estimation in Wireless MIMO Systems

    CERN Document Server

    Huang, Chao-Wei

    2011-01-01

    This work examines the use of two-way training in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems to discriminate the channel estimation performances between a legitimate receiver (LR) and an unauthorized receiver (UR). This thesis extends upon the previously proposed discriminatory channel estimation (DCE) scheme that allows only the transmitter to send training signals. The goal of DCE is to minimize the channel estimation error at LR while requiring the channel estimation error at UR to remain beyond a certain level. If the training signal is sent only by the transmitter, the performance discrimination between LR and UR will be limited since the training signals help both receivers perform estimates of their downlink channels. In this work, we consider instead the two-way training methodology that allows both the transmitter and LR to send training signals. In this case, the training signal sent by LR helps the transmitter obtain knowledge of the transmitter-to-LR channel, but does not help UR estim...

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, joint design of linear relay precoder and destination equalizer for dual-hop non-regenerative amplify-and-forward (AF) MIMO-OFDM systems under channel estimation errors is investigated. Second order moments of channel estimation errors in the two hops are first deduced. Then based on the Bayesian framework, joint design of linear robust precoder at the relay and equalizer at the destination is proposed to minimize the total mean-square-error (MSE) of the output signal at the destination. The optimal designs for both correlated and uncorrelated channel estimation errors are considered. The relationship with existing algorithms is also disclosed. Simulation results show that the proposed robust designs outperform the design based on estimated channel state information only.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lozano Angel

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents an extension of the vertical Bell Laboratories Layered Space-Time (V-BLAST architecture in which the closed-loop multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO capacity can be approached with conventional scalar coding, optimum successive decoding (OSD, and independent rate assignments for each transmit antenna. This theoretical framework is used as a basis for the proposed algorithms whereby rate and power information for each transmit antenna is acquired via a low-rate feedback channel. We propose the successive quantization with power control (SQPC and successive rate and power quantization (SRPQ algorithms. In SQPC, rate quantization is performed with continuous power control. This performs better than simply quantizing the rates without power control. A more practical implementation of SQPC is SRPQ, in which both rate and power levels are quantized. The performance loss due to power quantization is insignificant when 4–5 bits are used per antenna. Both SQPC and SRPQ show an average total rate close to the closed-loop MIMO capacity if a capacity-approaching scalar code is used per antenna.

    2008-01-01

    A new Turbo iterative receiver structure is proposed for the uplink multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiple access (MIMO-OFDMA) systems. The space-alternating generalized expectation-maximization (SAGE) algorithm is naturally embedded in the framework of iterative receiver to perform synchronization and detection using the Turbo detector outputs. In each iteration, the expectation step intends to remove the multiple access interference (MAI) caused by other asynchronous users, and the maximization step is utilized to estimate the required parameters (i.e., timing offset, carrier frequency offset, channel state information, etc.) sequentially for each user. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can approach the performance of ideal receiver closely, while the processing complexity is rather lower than the conventional detectors.

    Full Text Available The exact closed-form expressions regarding the outage probability and capacity of distributed MIMO (DMIMO systems over a composite fading channel are derived. This is achieved firstly by using a lognormal approximation to a gamma-lognormal distribution when a mobile station (MS in the cell is in a fixed position, and the so-called maximum ratio transmission/selected combining (MRT-SC and selected transmission/maximum ratio combining (ST-MRC schemes are adopted in uplink and downlink, respectively. Then, based on a newly proposed nonuniform MS cell distribution model, which is more consistent with the MS cell hotspot distribution in an actual communication environment, the average outage probability and capacity formulas are further derived. Finally, the accuracy of the approximation method and the rationality of the corresponding theoretical analysis regarding the system performance are proven and illustrated by computer simulations.

    Full Text Available We present a framework for cross-layer optimized real time multiuser encoding of video using a single layer H.264/AVC and transmission over MIMO wireless channels. In the proposed cross-layer adaptation, the channel of every user is characterized by the probability density function of its channel mutual information and the performance of the H.264/AVC encoder is modeled by a rate distortion model that takes into account the channel errors. These models are used during the resource allocation of the available slots in a TDMA MIMO communication system with capacity achieving channel codes. This framework allows for adaptation to the statistics of the wireless channel and to the available resources in the system and utilization of the multiuser diversity of the transmitted video sequences. We show the effectiveness of the proposed framework for video transmission over Rayleigh MIMO block fading channels, when channel distribution information is available at the transmitter.

    Because the training serials are unipolar in multi-input multi-output free space optical communication (MIMO-FSO) systems, which leads to the signal energy loss easily, the result of traditional singular value decomposition (SVD) channel estimation algorithm is inaccurate. A kind of modified adaptive SVD estimation algorithm is put forward which can compensate for the estimation errors of SVD algorithm. So the modified adaptive SVD estimation algorithm can be better fit for MIMO-FSO systems. The simulation results indicate that compared with the SVD algorithm, the mean square error (MSE) performance of the modified algorithm is improved by two and three orders of magnitude when the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is 15 dB and 30 dB, respectively. Compared with the average value modified SVD algorithm, the modified algorithm has 1 dB improvement of the MSE performance under the same condition. The modified algorithm possesses strong transplanting property and can be adopted in other channel estimation methods.%针对多入多出(MIMO)无线光通信(FSO)中传统的奇异值分解(SVD)信道估计算法由于训练序列的单极性容易导致信号能量损失,从而引起信道估计值不准确的问题,提出了一种修正的自适应SVD估计算法.该修正算法能对SVD算法中存在的估计误差进行补偿,从而能使该估计方法更好地应用于MIMO-FSO系统中.仿真结果表明,与SVD算法相比,在信噪比为15 dB时,修正的算法有2个数量级的均方误差(MSE)性能提高,在信噪比为30 dB时,MSE性能有3个数量级的提高.与相同条件下的均值修正SVD算法相比,平均有1 dB左右的性能改善.该修正方法可移植性强,在其他信道估计方法中也可采用类似的改进方法.

    Consider a K-user flat fading MIMO interference channel where the k-th transmitter (or receiver) is equipped with M_k (respectively N_k) antennas. If a large number of statistically independent channel extensions are allowed either across time or frequency, the recent work [1] suggests that the total achievable degrees of freedom (DoF) can be maximized via interference alignment, resulting in a total DoF that grows linearly with K even if M_k and N_k are bounded. In this work we consider the case where no channel extension is allowed, and establish a general condition that must be satisfied by any degrees of freedom tuple (d_1, d2, ..., d_K) achievable through linear interference alignment. For a symmetric system with M_k = M, N_k = N, d_k = d for all k, this condition implies that the total achievable DoF cannot grow linearly with K, and is in fact no more than K(M + N)=(K + 1). We also show that this bound is tight when the number of antennas at each transceiver is divisible by the number of data streams.

    Currently, wireless hydroacoustic modems are actively being developed, which are used to provide efficient data transmission in the hydroacoustic channel. Such kind of developments are relevant for today, as they are used in various fields of science and fields of activity. An example is the connection with underwater vehicles for scientific, research, search and rescue purposes. Development of this kind of communication systems (modems) is a difficult task, as signal propagation is affected by various factors. As a result, the transfer characteristic changes with time, thereby imposing restrictions on the acoustic communication channel. In this regard, the researchers began the task of further study sonar environment and get a detailed mathematical description of the underwater channel. For this, a huge number of field tests were conducted, aimed at studying the underwater acoustic environment. However, the results of the research are always limited by the conditions in which the test took place. Therefore, it is not always possible to apply these results to the required conditions. All of the above features do not allow you to create some kind of a commonly accepted model for the acoustic channel, as studies based on experiments, collected in localized environments without generalizations. This paper presents, the three-dimensional model of the sonar channel for MIMO systems in the coastal zone, based on the acoustic signal propagation characteristics in the presence of multiple paths, the influence of the Doppler effect (as a result of mobile and / or base station traffic), in terms of signal attenuation, receiver characteristics influence and Transmitting antenna, etc.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Adaptive equalization of wireless systems operating over time-varying and frequency-selective multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO channels is considered. A novel equalization structure is proposed, which comprises a cascade of decision feedback equalizer (DFE stages, each one detecting a single stream. The equalizer filters, as well as the ordering by which the streams are extracted, are updated based on the minimization of a set of least squares (LS cost functions in a BLAST-like fashion. To ensure numerically robust performance of the proposed algorithm, Cholesky factorization of the equalizer input autocorrelation matrix is applied. Moreover, after showing that the equalization problem possesses an order recursive structure, a computationally efficient scheme is developed. A variation of the method is also described, which is appropriate for slow time-varying conditions. Theoretical analysis of the equalization problem reveals an inherent numerical deficiency, thus justifying our choice of employing a numerically robust algebraic transformation. The performance of the proposed method in terms of convergence, tracking, and bit error rate (BER is evaluated through extensive computer simulations for time-varying and wideband channels.

    2010-01-01

    The fundamental diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) of the quasi-static fading, MIMO Z interference channel (ZIC), with $M_1$ and $M_2$ antennas at the transmitters and $N_1$ and $N_2$ antennas at the corresponding receivers, respectively, is derived. Channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT) and a short-term average power constraint is assumed. The achievability of the DMT is proved by showing that a simple Gaussian superposition coding scheme can achieve a rate region which is within a constant (independent of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)) number of bits from an upper bound to the capacity region of the ZIC. We also characterize an achievable DMT of the ZIC with No-CSIT and show that in a small region of multiplexing gains (MG), the full CSIT DMT of the ZIC can be achieved with no CSIT at all. The size of this MG region depends on the system parameters such as the number of antennas at the four nodes (referred to hereafter as "antenna configuration"), SNRs and interference-to-noise ratio (INR) o...

  14. Achievable rate of cognitive radio spectrum sharing MIMO channel with space alignment and interference temperature precoding

    2013-06-01

    In this paper, we investigate the spectral efficiency gain of an uplink Cognitive Radio (CR) Multi-Input MultiOutput (MIMO) system in which the Secondary/unlicensed User (SU) is allowed to share the spectrum with the Primary/licensed User (PU) using a specific precoding scheme to communicate with a common receiver. The proposed scheme exploits at the same time the free eigenmodes of the primary channel after a space alignment procedure and the interference threshold tolerated by the PU. In our work, we study the maximum achievable rate of the CR node after deriving an optimal power allocation with respect to an outage interference and an average power constraints. We, then, study a protection protocol that considers a fixed interference threshold. Applied to Rayleigh fading channels, we show, through numerical results, that our proposed scheme enhances considerably the cognitive achievable rate. For instance, in case of a perfect detection of the PU signal, after applying Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC), the CR rate remains non-zero for high Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) which is usually impossible when we only use space alignment technique. In addition, we show that the rate gain is proportional to the allowed interference threshold by providing a fixed rate even in the high SNR range. © 2013 IEEE.

    2014-01-26

    Several interference cancellation (IC) schemes have been recently proposed to suppress multi-user interference for various network configurations (e.g., multiple access and X channels). However, most of these schemes trade-off diversity for implementation complexity or vice-versa. In this paper, we propose a full-diversity interference cancellation scheme in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) X channel with two sources and two destinations while maintaining low decoding complexity. We provide sufficient conditions for a wide range of space-time block codes (STBCs) to achieve full-diversity gain under the so-called partial interference cancellation group decoding (PICGD) in the configuration of interest. A systematic construction is then proposed to achieve full-diversity. The constructed scheme is compared to recently proposed IC scheme in terms of performance and decoding complexity. Our IC scheme outperforms the recently proposed scheme in the case it provides higher transmission rate, while it loses slightly in the case of equal rates. In terms of decoding complexity, both schemes are equivalent.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we present the design and the measurement of MIMO meandered monopole antennas and the computation of their channel capacity performance. The initial proposed handset-system is composed of a meandered monopole operating in the LTE 700 MHz band, connected to a parasitic radiating element for the upper 2.5 GHz LTE band. Two antennas of the same kind are then closely positioned on the same 120x50 mm2 Printed Circuit Board (PCB. A neutralization line connects the two antennas to enhance their port-to-port isolation in the 700 MHz band. The computation of the channel capacity performance in this band is based on propagation simulations performed with the GRIMM model from the CREMANT. Two system-prototypes are evaluated: one with the neutralization line for enhanced port-to-port isolation and a second without the neutralization exhibiting poor antenna-to-antenna isolation. It is demonstrated that the neutralization technique helps in giving a minimum improvement of 12% of the capacity performance of the handset-system, and a maximum improvement 46%, in the chosen environment.

    2010-01-01

    The fundamental diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) of the quasi-static fading, symmetric $2$-user MIMO interference channel (IC) with channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT) and a short term average power constraint is obtained. The general case is considered where the interference-to-noise ratio (INR) at each receiver scales differently from the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the receivers. The achievability of the DMT is proved by showing that a simple Han-Kobayashi coding scheme can achieve a rate region which is within a constant (independent of SNR) number of bits from a set of upper bounds to the capacity region of the IC. In general, only part of the DMT curve with CSIT can be achieved by coding schemes which do not use any CSIT (No-CSIT). A result in this paper establishes a threshold for the INR beyond which the DMT with CSIT coincides with that with No-CSIT. Our result also settles one of the conjectures made in~\\cite{EaOlCv}. Furthermore, the fundamental DMT of a class of non-symmet...

    2009-01-01

    We consider a Gaussian multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wiretap channel model, where there exists a transmitter, a legitimate receiver and an eavesdropper, each node equipped with multiple antennas. We study the problem of finding the optimal input covariance matrix that achieves secrecy capacity subject to a power constraint, which leads to a non-convex optimization problem that is in general difficult to solve. Existing results for this problem address the case in which the transmitter and the legitimate receiver have two antennas each and the eavesdropper has one antenna. For the general cases, it has been shown that the optimal input covariance matrix has low rank when the difference between the Grams of the eavesdropper and the legitimate receiver channel matrices is indefinite or semi-definite, while it may have low rank or full rank when the difference is positive definite. In this paper, the aforementioned non-convex optimization problem is investigated. In particular, for the multiple-input sing...

    We study the degrees of freedom (DoF) regions of two-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Z and full interference channels in this paper. We assume that the receivers always have perfect channel state information. We derive the DoF region of Z interference channel with channel state information at transmitter (CSIT). For full interference channel without CSIT, the DoF region has been obtained in previous work except for a special case M1< N1channels are the same. We establish the achievability based on the assumption of transmitter antenna mode switching. A systematic way of constructing the DoF-achieving nulling and beamforming matrices is presented in this paper.

  2. On Low-Complexity Full-diversity Detection In Multi-User MIMO Multiple-Access Channels

    KAUST Repository

    2014-01-28

    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques are becoming commonplace in recent wireless communication standards. This newly introduced dimension (i.e., space) can be efficiently used to mitigate the interference in the multi-user MIMO context. In this paper, we focus on the uplink of a MIMO multiple access channel (MAC) where perfect channel state information (CSI) is only available at the destination. We provide new sufficient conditions for a wide range of space-time block codes (STBC)s to achieve full-diversity under partial interference cancellation group decoding (PICGD) with or without successive interference cancellation (SIC) for completely blind users. Interference cancellation (IC) schemes for two and three users are then provided and shown to satisfy the full-diversity criteria. Beside the complexity reduction due to the fact that PICGD enables separate decoding of distinct users without sacrificing the diversity gain, further reduction of the decoding complexity may be obtained. In fact, thanks to the structure of the proposed schemes, the real and imaginary parts of each user\\'s symbols may be decoupled without any loss of performance. Our new IC scheme is shown to outperform recently proposed two-user IC scheme especially for high spectral efficiency while requiring significantly less decoding complexity.

  3. On the power and offset allocation for rate adaptation of spatial multiplexing in optical wireless MIMO channels

    2013-04-01

    In this paper, we consider resource allocation method in the visible light communication. It is challenging to achieve high data rate due to the limited bandwidth of the optical sources. In order to increase the spectral efficiency, we design a suitable multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system utilizing spatial multiplexing based on singular value decomposition and adaptive modulation. More specifically, after explaining why the conventional allocation method in radio frequency MIMO channels cannot be applied directly to the optical intensity channels, we theoretically derive a power allocation method for an arbitrary number of transmit and receive antennas for optical wireless MIMO systems. Based on three key constraints: the nonnegativity of the intensity-modulated signal, the aggregate optical power budget, and the bit error rate requirement, we propose a novel method to allocate the optical power, the offset value, and the modulation size. Based on some selected simulation results, we show that our proposed allocation method gives a better spectral efficiency at the expense of an increased computational complexity in comparison to a simple method that allocates the optical power equally among all the data streams. © 2013 IEEE.

    Wang, Chenwei; Jafar, Syed A

    2011-01-01

    We show that the 3 user M_T x M_R MIMO interference channel has d(M,N)=min(M/(2-1/k),N/(2+1/k)) degrees of freedom (DoF) normalized by time, frequency, and space dimensions, where M=min(M_T,M_R), N=max(M_T,M_R), k=ceil{M/(N-M)}. While the DoF outer bound is established for every M_T, M_R value, the achievability is established in general subject to normalization with respect to spatial-extensions. Given spatial-extensions, the achievability relies only on linear beamforming based interference alignment schemes with no need for time/frequency extensions. In the absence of spatial extensions, we show through examples how essentially the same scheme may be applied over time/frequency extensions. The central new insight to emerge from this work is the notion of subspace alignment chains as DoF bottlenecks. The DoF value d(M,N) is a piecewise linear function of M,N, with either M or N being the bottleneck within each linear segment. The corner points of these piecewise linear segments correspond to A={1/2,2/3,3/4,...

    2013-10-01

    We consider a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference channel (IC), where a single data stream per user is transmitted and each receiver treats interference as noise. The paper focuses on the open problem of computing the outermost boundary (so-called Pareto boundary-PB) of the achievable rate region under linear transceiver design. The Pareto boundary consists of the strict PB and non-strict PB. For the two user case, we compute the non-strict PB and the two ending points of the strict PB exactly. For the strict PB, we formulate the problem to maximize one rate while the other rate is fixed such that a strict PB point is reached. To solve this non-convex optimization problem which results from the hard-coupled two transmit beamformers, we propose an alternating optimization algorithm. Furthermore, we extend the algorithm to the multi-user scenario and show convergence. Numerical simulations illustrate that the proposed algorithm computes a sequence of well-distributed operating points that serve as a reasonable and complete inner bound of the strict PB compared with existing methods.

    2011-01-01

    This work derives inner and outer bounds on the generalized degrees of freedom (GDOF) of the K-user symmetric MIMO Gaussian interference channel (IC). For the inner bound, an achievable GDOF is derived by employing a combination of treating interference as noise, zero-forcing (ZF) at the receivers, interference alignment (IA), and extending the Han-Kobayashi (HK) scheme to K users, depending on the number of antennas and the INR/SNR level. An outer bound on the GDOF is derived, using a combination of the notion of cooperation and providing side information to the receivers. Several interesting conclusions are drawn from the expressions derived. For example, when K > N/M+1, a combination of the HK and IA schemes performs the best among the schemes considered. However, for N/M < K <= N/M+1, HK scheme outperforms other schemes and also found to be GDOF optimal. In this case, ZF-receiving coincides with HK scheme at alpha = 1 and GDOF optimal also.

    We consider a two-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference channel (IC), where a single data stream is transmitted and each receiver applies the minimum mean square error (MMSE) filter. In this paper, we study an open topic on the Pareto boundary of the rate region. The Pareto boundary is divided by two turning points into the weak Pareto boundary (including the horizontal part and vertical part) and the strict Pareto boundary (including the upper-right part and turning points). The weak Pareto boundary and turning points can be computed exactly. For the strict Pareto boundary, we propose a computationally efficient method called iterative alternating algorithm (IAA) for maximizing the rate of one user while the rate of the other user is fixed. To deal with the difficult coupling of the two transmit beamformers in this optimization problem, we convert it into two single-beamformer optimization problems. Then, by certain equivalent transformations, each problem becomes a quadratically constraine...

  13. Crystallized Rate Regions for MIMO Transmission

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available When considering the multiuser SISO interference channel, the allowable rate region is not convex and the maximization of the aggregated rate of all the users by the means of transmission power control becomes inefficient. Hence, a concept of the crystallized rate regions has been proposed, where the time-sharing approach is considered to maximize the sumrate.In this paper, we extend the concept of crystallized rate regions from the simple SISO interference channel case to the MIMO/OFDM interference channel. As a first step, we extend the time-sharing convex hull from the SISO to the MIMO channel case. We provide a non-cooperative game-theoretical approach to study the achievable rate regions, and consider the Vickrey-Clarke-Groves (VCG mechanism design with a novel cost function. Within this analysis, we also investigate the case of OFDM channels, which can be treated as the special case of MIMO channels when the channel transfer matrices are diagonal. In the second step, we adopt the concept of correlated equilibrium into the case of two-user MIMO/OFDM, and we introduce a regret-matching learning algorithm for the system to converge to the equilibrium state. Moreover, we formulate the linear programming problem to find the aggregated rate of all users and solve it using the Simplex method. Finally, numerical results are provided to confirm our theoretical claims and show the improvement provided by this approach.

On the basis of FD-SAGE algorithm, a modified SAGE algorithm is derived through decomposing and analyzing the potential and incomplete data of SAGE algorithm. Meanwhile, the maximum likelihood algorithm is introduced in the process of refreshing data information in SAGE algorithm, and then the reliability of system is improved. The theoretical analysis and simulation results show that this algorithm can better track the channel change and acquire a faster convergence speed, just in cost of a slight system complexity. The performance is better than the traditional Least Square (LS)algorithm. Comparing with the ideal channel estimation under the maximum likelihood algorithm in signal detection, the new proposed algorithm has only a loss of 0.5 dB with the same bit error rate.

    MIMO means multiple inputs multiple outputs. As it refers MIMO is a RF technology used in many new technologies these days to increase link capacity and spectral efficiency. MIMO is used in Wi-Fi, LTE, 4G, 5G and other wireless technologies. This paper describes the earlier history of MIMO-OFDM and the antenna beam forming development in MIMO and types of MIMO. Also this treatise describes several decoding algorithms. The MIMO combined with OFDM increases the channel capacity. But the main problem is in estimating the transmitted signal from the received signal. So the channel knowledge is to be known in estimating the channel capacity. The advancement in MIMO-OFDM is Massive MIMO which is beneficial in providing additional data capacity in the increased traffic environment is described. In this memoir various application scenarios of LS-MIMO which increases the capacity are discussed.

    2016-03-01

    In this paper, we propose and study a non-imaging receiver design reducing the correlation of channel matrix for indoor multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) visible light communication (VLC) systems. Contrary to previous works, our proposed mirror diversity receiver (MDR) not only blocks the reception of light on one specific direction but also improves the channel gain on the other direction by receiving the light reflected by a mirror deployed between the photodetectors. We analyze the channel capacity and optimal height of mirror in terms of maximum channel capacity for a 2 -by-2 MIMO-VLC system in a 2-dimensional geometric model.We prove that this constructive and destructive effects in channel matrix resulting from our proposed MDR are more beneficial to obtain well-conditioned channel matrix which is suitable for implementing spatial-multiplexing MIMO-VLC systems in order to support high data rate.

    In this paper, we propose a novel communication strategy which incorporates physical-layer network coding (PNC) into multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) two-way relay channels (TWRCs). At the heart of the proposed scheme lies a new key technique referred to as eigen-direction alignment (EDA) precoding. The EDA precoding efficiently aligns the two-user's eigen-modes into the same directions. Based on that, we carry out multi-stream PNC over the aligned eigen-modes. We derive an achievable rate of the proposed EDA-PNC scheme, based on nested lattice codes, over a MIMO TWRC. Asymptotic analysis shows that the proposed EDA-PNC scheme approaches the capacity upper bound as the number of user antennas increases towards infinity. For a finite number of user antennas, we formulate the design criterion of the optimal EDA precoder and present solutions. Numerical results show that there is only a marginal gap between the achievable rate of the proposed EDA-PNC scheme and the capacity upper bound of the MIMO TWRC, in ...

    Information-guided channel hopping (IGCH) is a promising technique for high-data-rate communications using multiple antennas for information mapping at the transmitter and optional antenna diversity at the receiver. Compared with some popular multi-antenna techniques, the advantage of this scheme is proven in ideal channel conditions, where the channel is spatially white and the perfect channel state information is assumed available at the receiver. The main objective of this paper is to present an information theoretical study on IGCH in realistic propagation environments with channel degeneracy due to spatial correlation and keyhole phenomena as well as imperfect channel estimation. It is proven that good performance promised by IGCH can be achieved in a variety of non-ideal channel conditions. Moreover, the analysis in this paper provides a convenient tool for the corresponding system design in practical operating environments. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    In this paper, we propose a robust transceiver design for the K-pair quasi-static MIMO interference channel. Each transmitter is equipped with M antennas, each receiver is equipped with N antennas, and the k-th transmitter sends L_k independent data streams to the desired receiver. In the literature, there exist a variety of theoretically promising transceiver designs for the interference channel such as interference alignment-based schemes, which have feasibility and practical limitations. In order to address practical system issues and requirements, we consider a transceiver design that enforces robustness against imperfect channel state information (CSI) as well as fair performance among the users in the interference channel. Specifically, we formulate the transceiver design as an optimization problem to maximize the worst-case signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio among all users. We devise a low complexity iterative algorithm based on alternative optimization and semi-definite relaxation techniques. Nu...

    2015-09-01

    The multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with the use of transmit and receive antenna arrays achieves diversity and array gains via transmit beamforming. Due to the absence of full channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter, the transmit beamforming vector can be quantized at the receiver and sent back to the transmitter by a low-rate feedback channel, called limited feedback beamforming. One of the key roles of Vector Quantization (VQ) is how to generate a good codebook such that the distortion between the original image and the reconstructed image is the minimized. In this paper, a novel adaptive codebook selection scheme for image classification is proposed with taking both spatial and temporal correlation inherent in the channel into consideration. The new codebook selection algorithm is developed to select two codebooks from the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) codebook, the generalized Lloyd algorithm (GLA) codebook and the Grassmannian codebook to be combined and used as candidates of the original image and the reconstructed image for image transmission. The channel is estimated and divided into four regions based on the spatial and temporal correlation of the channel and an appropriate codebook is assigned to each region. The proposed method can efficiently reduce the required information of feedback under the spatially and temporally correlated channels, where each region is adaptively. Simulation results show that in the case of temporally and spatially correlated channels, the bit-error-rate (BER) performance can be improved substantially by the proposed algorithm compared to the one with only single codebook.

    Visible light communication (VLC) using optical sources which can be simultaneously utilized for illumination and communication is currently an attractive option for wireless personal area network. Improving the data rate in optical wireless communication system is challenging due to the limited bandwidth of the optical sources. In this paper, we design the singular value decomposition (SVD)- based multiplexing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system to support two data streams in optical wireless channels. Noting that the conventional allocation method in radio frequency (RF) MIMO channels cannot be applied directly to the optical intensity channels, we propose a novel method to allocate the optical power, the offset value and the modulation size for maximum sum rate under the constraints of the nonnegativity of the modulated signals, the aggregate optical power and the bit error rate (BER) requirement. The simulation results show that the proposed allocation method gives the better performance than the method to allocate the optical power equally for each data stream. © 2011 IEEE.

    Full Text Available A novel hybrid channel estimator is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency- division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM system with per-subcarrier transmit antenna selection having optimal power allocation among subcarriers. In practice, antenna selection information is transmitted through a binary symmetric control channel with a crossover probability. Linear minimum mean-square error (LMMSE technique is optimal technique for channel estimation in MIMO-OFDM system. Though LMMSE estimator performs well at low signal to noise ratio (SNR, in the presence of antenna-to-subcarrier-assignment error (ATSA, it introduces irreducible error at high SNR. We have proved that relaxed MMSE (RMMSE estimator overcomes the performance degradation at high SNR. The proposed hybrid estimator combines the benefits of LMMSE at low SNR and RMMSE estimator at high SNR. The vector mean square error (MSE expression is modified as scalar expression so that an optimal power allocation can be performed. The convex optimization problem is formulated and solved to allocate optimal power to subcarriers minimizing the MSE, subject to transmit sum power constraint. Further, an analytical expression for SNR threshold at which the hybrid estimator is to be switched from LMMSE to RMMSE is derived. The simulation results show that the proposed hybrid estimator gives robust performance, irrespective of ATSA error.

    In this paper, the problem of pilot beam pattern design for channel estimation in massive multiple-input multiple-output systems with a large number of transmit antennas at the base station is considered, and a new algorithm for pilot beam pattern design for optimal channel estimation is proposed under the assumption that the channel is a stationary Gauss-Markov random process. The proposed algorithm designs the pilot beam pattern sequentially by exploiting the properties of Kalman filtering and the associated prediction error covariance matrices and also the channel statistics such as spatial and temporal channel correlation. The resulting design generates a sequentially-optimal sequence of pilot beam patterns with low complexity for a given set of system parameters. Numerical results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

    Aniba, Ghassane

    2011-04-01

    This paper presents an optimal adaptive modulation (AM) algorithm designed using a cross-layer approach which combines truncated automatic repeat request (ARQ) protocol and packet combining. Transmissions are performed over multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Nakagami fading channels, and retransmitted packets are not necessarily modulated using the same modulation format as in the initial transmission. Compared to traditional approach, cross-layer design based on the coupling across the physical and link layers, has proven to yield better performance in wireless communications. However, there is a lack for the performance analysis and evaluation of such design when the ARQ protocol is used in conjunction with packet combining. Indeed, previous works addressed the link layer performance of AM with truncated ARQ but without packet combining. In addition, previously proposed AM algorithms are not optimal and can provide poor performance when packet combining is implemented. Herein, we first show that the packet loss rate (PLR) resulting from the combining of packets modulated with different constellations can be well approximated by an exponential function. This model is then used in the design of an optimal AM algorithm for systems employing packet combining, truncated ARQ and MIMO antenna configurations, considering transmission over Nakagami fading channels. Numerical results are provided for operation with or without packet combining, and show the enhanced performance and efficiency of the proposed algorithm in comparison with existing ones. © 2011 IEEE.

  11. Adaptive antenna selection and Tx/Rx beamforming for large-scale MIMO systems in 60 GHz channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract We consider a large-scale MIMO system operating in the 60 GHz band employing beamforming for high-speed data transmission. We assume that the number of RF chains is smaller than the number of antennas, which motivates the use of antenna selection to exploit the beamforming gain afforded by the large-scale antenna array. However, the system constraint that at the receiver, only a linear combination of the receive antenna outputs is available, which together with the large dimension of the MIMO system makes it challenging to devise an efficient antenna selection algorithm. By exploiting the strong line-of-sight property of the 60 GHz channels, we propose an iterative antenna selection algorithm based on discrete stochastic approximation that can quickly lock onto a near-optimal antenna subset. Moreover, given a selected antenna subset, we propose an adaptive transmit and receive beamforming algorithm based on the stochastic gradient method that makes use of a low-rate feedback channel to inform the transmitter about the selected beams. Simulation results show that both the proposed antenna selection and the adaptive beamforming techniques exhibit fast convergence and near-optimal performance.

  12. Channel capacity of multiple-input multiple-output systems with transmit and receive correlation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    In order to investigate the impact of channel model parameters on the channel capacity of a multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) system,a novel method is proposed to explore the channel capacity under Rayleigh flat fading with correlated transmit and receive antennas.The optimal transmitting direction which can achieve maximum channel capacity is derived using random matrices theory.In addition,the closed-form expression for the channel capacity of MIMO systems is given by utilizing the properties of Wishart distribution when SNR is high.Computer simulation results show that the channel capacity is maximized when the antenna spacing increases to a certain point,and furthermore,the larger the scattering angle is,the more quickly the channel capacity converges to its maximum.At high SNR (>12 dB),the estimation of capacity is close to its true value.And,when the same array configuration is adopted both at the transmitter and the receiver,the UCA yields higher channel capacity than ULA.

    Full Text Available The large-scale array antenna system with numerous low-power antennas deployed at the base station, also known as massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO, can provide a plethora of advantages over the classical array antenna system. Precoding is important to exploit massive MIMO performance, and codebook design is crucial due to the limited feedback channel. In this paper, we propose a new avenue of codebook design based on a Kronecker-type approximation of the array correlation structure for the uniform rectangular antenna array, which is preferable for the antenna deployment of massive MIMO. Although the feedback overhead is quite limited, the codebook design can provide an effective solution to support multiple users in different scenarios. Simulation results demonstrate that our proposed codebook outperforms the previously known codebooks remarkably.

    2012-01-01

    In this paper, we propose an iterative interference alignment (IA) algorithm for MIMO cellular networks with partial connectivity, which is induced by heterogeneous path losses and spatial correlation. Such systems impose several key technical challenges in the IA algorithm design, namely the overlapping between the direct and interfering links due to the MIMO cellular topology as well as how to exploit the partial connectivity. We shall address these challenges and propose a three stage IA algorithm. As illustration, we analyze the achievable degree of freedom (DoF) of the proposed algorithm for a symmetric partially connected MIMO cellular network. We show that there is significant DoF gain compared with conventional IA algorithms due to partial connectivity. The derived DoF bound is also backward compatible with that achieved on fully connected K-pair MIMO interference channels.

    CERN Document Server

    Hatabu, Atsushi; Kabashima, Yoshiyuki

    2009-01-01

    The Kronecker channel model of wireless communication is analyzed using statistical mechanics methods. In the model, spatial proximities among transmission/reception antennas are taken into account as certain correlation matrices, which generally yield non-trivial dependence among symbols to be estimated. This prevents accurate assessment of the communication performance by naively using a previously developed analytical scheme based on a matrix integration formula. In order to resolve this difficulty, we develop a formalism that can formally handle the correlations in Kronecker models based on the known scheme. Unfortunately, direct application of the developed scheme is, in general, practically difficult. However, the formalism is still useful, indicating that the effect of the correlations generally increase after the fourth order with respect to correlation strength. Therefore, the known analytical scheme offers a good approximation in performance evaluation when the correlation strength is sufficiently s...

  4. Single-Tap Precoders and Decoders for Multiuser MIMO FBMC-OQAM Under Strong Channel Frequency Selectivity

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rottenberg, Francois; Mestre, Xavier; Horlin, Francois; Louveaux, Jerome

    2017-02-01

    The design of linear precoders or decoders for multiuser (MU) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) filterbank multicarrier (FBMC) modulations in the case of strong channel frequency selectivity is presented. The users and the base station (BS) communicate using space division multiple access (SDMA). The low complexity proposed solution is based on a single tap per-subcarrier precoding/decoding matrix at the base station (BS) in the downlink/uplink. As opposed to classical approaches that assume flat channel frequency selectivity at the subcarrier level, the BS does not make this assumption and takes into account the distortion caused by channel frequency selectivity. The expression of the FBMC asymptotic mean squared error (MSE) in the case of strong channel selectivity derived in earlier works is developed and extended. The linear precoders and decoders are found by optimizing the MSE formula under two design criteria, namely zero forcing (ZF) or minimum mean squared error (MMSE). Finally, simulation results demonstrate the performance of the optimized design. As long as the number of BS antennas is larger than the number of users, it is shown that those extra degrees of freedom can be used to compensate for the channel frequency selectivity.

    2010-01-01

    We study the degrees of freedom (DoF) regions of two-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Z and full interference channels in this paper. We assume that the receivers always have perfect channel state information. We first derive the DoF region of Z interference channel with channel state information at transmitter (CSIT). For full interference channel without CSIT, the DoF region has been fully characterized recently and it is shown that the previously known outer bound is not achievable. In this work, we investigate the no-CSIT case further by assuming that the transmitter has the ability of antenna mode switching. We obtain the DoF region as a function of the number of available antenna modes and reveal the incremental gain in DoF that each extra antenna mode can bring. It is shown that in certain cases the reconfigurable antennas can bring extra DoF gains. In these cases, the DoF region is maximized when the number of modes is at least equal to the number of receive antennas at the corresponding rec...

  6. On the performance of diagonal lattice space-time codes for the quasi-static MIMO channel

    2013-06-01

    There has been tremendous work done on designing space-time codes for the quasi-static multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel. All the coding design to date focuses on either high-performance, high rates, low complexity encoding and decoding, or targeting a combination of these criteria. In this paper, we analyze in detail the performance of diagonal lattice space-time codes under lattice decoding. We present both upper and lower bounds on the average error probability. We derive a new closed form expression of the lower bound using the so-called sphere-packing bound. This bound presents the ultimate performance limit a diagonal lattice space-time code can achieve at any signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).

    2007-01-01

    Consider a wireless MIMO multi-hop channel with n_s non-cooperating source antennas and n_d fully cooperating destination antennas, as well as L clusters containing k non-cooperating relay antennas each. The source signal traverses all L clusters of relay antennas, before it reaches the destination. When relay antennas within the same cluster scale their received signals by the same constant before the retransmission, the equivalent channel matrix H relating the input signals at the source antennas to the output signals at the destination antennas is proportional to the product of channel matrices H_l, l=1,...,L+1, corresponding to the individual hops. We perform an asymptotic capacity analysis for this channel as follows: In a first instance we take the limits n_s->infty, n_d->infty and k->infty, but keep both n_s/n_d and k/n_d fixed. Then, we take the limits L->infty and k/n_d->infty. Requiring that the H_l's satisfy the conditions needed for the Marcenko-Pastur law, we prove that the capacity scales linear...

    A multiuser multiple input multiple output (MIMO) broadcast scheme was proposed through ap-plying dirty paper coding (DPC) at the transmitter and linear equalization at the receiver. Assuming single data stream communication for each user, joint transmitter and linear receiver design were done to enhance the system performance. Furthermore, a multiuser scheduling algorithm was presented to exploit multiuser diversity when the number of the users is larger than that of transmit antennas. The proposed system achieves the sum rate close to the Sato bound and is superior to some of the existing schemes.

    In multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, spatial demultiplexing at the receiver has its own significance. Thus, several detection techniques have been investigated. There is a tradeoff between computational complexity and optimal performance in most of the detection techniques. One of the detection techniques which gives improved performance and acceptable level of complexity is ordered successive interference cancellation (OSIC) with minimum mean square error (MMSE). However, optimal performance can be achieved by maximum likelihood (ML) detection but at a higher complexity level. Therefore, MMSE-OSIC with candidates (OSIC2) detection is recommended as a solution. In this paper, spatial multiplexed (SM) MIMO systems are considered to evaluate error performance with different detection techniques such as MMSE-OSIC, ML and MMSE-OSIC2 in a composite fading i. e. Weibull-gamma (WG) fading environment. In WG distribution, Weibull and gamma distribution represent multipath and shadowing effects, respectively. Simulation results illustrate that MMSE-OSIC2 detection technique gives the improved symbol error rate (SER) performance which is similar to ML performance and its complexity level approaches to MMSE-OSIC.

  11. A novel mirror diversity receiver for indoor MIMO visible light communication systems

    2016-12-24

    In this paper, we propose and study a non-imaging receiver design reducing the correlation of channel matrix for indoor multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) visible light communication (VLC) systems. Contrary to previous works, our proposed mirror diversity receiver (MDR) not only blocks the reception of light on one specific direction but also improves the channel gain on the other direction by receiving the light reflected by a mirror deployed between the photodetectors. We analyze the channel capacity and optimal height of mirror in terms of maximum channel capacity for a 2 × 2 MIMO-VLC system in a 2-dimensional geometric model. We prove that this constructive and destructive effects in channel matrix resulting from our proposed MDR are more beneficial to obtain well-conditioned channel matrix which is suitable for implementing spatial-multiplexing MIMO-VLC systems in order to support high data rate.

However,the performance of Multiple Input Multiple Output( MIMO) channel in terahertz band is still unknown. A novel MIMO channel model in terahertz communications is proposed by using a discrete mathematical method. Combining the molecular absorption and the path loss in terahertz band,a model of channel capacity is presented based on the channel state information at the receiver.

    2015-04-21

    We study the impact of multiple relays on the primary user (PU) and secondary user (SU) rates of underlay MIMO cognitive radio. Both users exploit amplify-and-forward relays to communicate with the destination. A space alignment technique and a special linear precoding and decoding scheme are applied to allow the SU to use the resulting free eigenmodes. In addition, the SU can communicate over the used eigenmodes under the condition of respecting an interference constraint tolerated by the PU. At the destination, a successive interference cancellation (SIC) is performed to estimate the secondary signal. We present the explicit expressions of the optimal PU and SU powers that maximize their achievable rates. In the numerical results, we show that our scheme provides cognitive rate gain even in absence of tolerated interference. In addition, we show that increasing the number of relays enhances the PU and SU rates at low power regime and/or when the relays power is sufficiently high.

    Full Text Available Multilevel Space Time Trellis Coded Modulation with antenna grouping, which has been proposed recently, has coding gain and diversity gain, which in turn provide high throughput with considerable low computational complexity. However its performance is limited by predefining the antenna groups per component codes. In this paper Multilevel Spatial Multiplexing-Space Time Trellis Coded Modulation (ML-SM-STTCM has been proposed, in which antenna group selection is made based on spatial modulation based on trellis coding proposed by Ertugrul Basar and team. This idea maximizes the spatial diversity. Since only selected antennas are used to transmit the signal, and also the antennas with less cross correlation are in the selected groups, we could able to achieve improved BER performance even in the fast fading channel. Since the antenna selection is based on the component code in the system, at the decoder without increase in the computational complexity, we could achieve better error performance. The performance of the proposed system is analysed with Viterbi decoding algorithm and sub optimal sequential decoding algorithm. In this system, the antenna groups are non-overlapping, hence, it needs Nt, the number transmitter antennas, more than what is required at time t. The computer simulation reveals that the proposed system gives better BER performance compared to Multilevel Space Time Trellis Coded Modulation (ML STTCM over fast fading channel with the same computational complexity both at the transmitter and receiver.

    We investigate the secrecy capacity of an ergodic fading wiretap channel in which the main channel is correlated with the eavesdropper channel. In this study, the full Channel State Information (CSI) is assumed, and thus the transmitter knows the channel gains of the legitimate receiver and the eavesdropper. By analyzing the resulting secrecy capacity we quantify the loss of the secrecy capacity due to the correlation. In addition, we study the asymptotic behavior of the secrecy capacity as Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) tends to infinity. The capacity of an ordinary fading channel logarithmically increases with SNR. On the contrary, the secrecy capacity converges into a limit which can be an upper bound on the secrecy capacity over the fading wiretap channel. We find a closed form of the upper bound for the correlated Rayleigh wiretap channel which also includes the independent case as a special one. Our work shows that the upper bound is determined by only two channel parameters; the correlation coefficient an...

    2017-02-01

    This paper is concerned with the channel estimation problem in Millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless systems with large antenna arrays. By exploiting the inherent sparse nature of the mmWave channel, we first propose a fast channel estimation (FCE) algorithm based on a novel overlapped beam pattern design, which can increase the amount of information carried by each channel measurement and thus reduce the required channel estimation time compared to the existing non-overlapped designs. We develop a maximum likelihood (ML) estimator to optimally extract the path information from the channel measurements. Then, we propose a novel rate-adaptive channel estimation (RACE) algorithm, which can dynamically adjust the number of channel measurements based on the expected probability of estimation error (PEE). The performance of both proposed algorithms is analyzed. For the FCE algorithm, an approximate closed-form expression for the PEE is derived. For the RACE algorithm, a lower bound for the minimum signal energy-to-noise ratio required for a given number of channel measurements is developed based on the Shannon-Hartley theorem. Simulation results show that the FCE algorithm significantly reduces the number of channel estimation measurements compared to the existing algorithms using non-overlapped beam patterns. By adopting the RACE algorithm, we can achieve up to a 6dB gain in signal energy-to-noise ratio for the same PEE compared to the existing algorithms.

    Multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) systems promise enormous capacity increase and are being considered as one of the key technologies for future wireless networks. However, the decrease in capacity due to the presence of interferers in MIMO networks is not well understood. In this paper, we develop an analytical framework to characterize the capacity of MIMO communication systems in the presence of multiple MIMO co-channel interferers and noise. We consider the situation in which transmitters have no information about the channel and all links undergo Rayleigh fading. We first generalize the known determinant representation of hypergeometric functions with matrix arguments to the case when the argument matrices have eigenvalues of arbitrary multiplicity. This enables the derivation of the ergodic capacity expressions for MIMO systems in the presence of multiple MIMO interferers. Our analysis is valid for any number of interferers, each with arbitrary number of antennas having possibly unequal power levels....

    A novel Automatic repeat ReQuest (ARQ) protocol called cooperative ARQ is presented in this letter, where a relay terminal is requested to retransmit an erroneously received packet, instead of the source terminal. The data link layer Packet Error Rate (PER) performance of cooperative ARQ is derived in correlated wireless channel. The results show that even though the relay-destination channel is worse than the sourcedestination channel, the new protocol outperforms the traditional one as long as the average SNR of the relaydestination channel is better than a certain threshold. It is also demonstrated that a second order diversity gain can be achieved with the cooperative ARQ protocol.

  12. How to Achieve the Optimal DMT of Selective Fading MIMO Channels?

    CERN Document Server

    Mroueh, Lina

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, we consider a particular class of selective fading channel corresponding to a channel that is selective either in time or in frequency. For this class of channel, we propose a systematic way to achieve the optimal DMT derived in Coronel and B\\"olcskei, IEEE ISIT, 2007 by extending the non-vanishing determinant (NVD) criterion to the selective channel case. A new code construction based on split NVD parallel codes is then proposed to satisfy the NVD parallel criterion. This result is of significant interest not only in its own right, but also because it settles a long-standing debate in the literature related to the optimal DMT of selective fading channels.

    Coexistence and interoperability between 20 MHz and 40 MHz device and modes of operations are stressed in standard IEEE 802.11n system.It is mandate to report the both sub-channels states to Medium Access Control (MAC) at receiver,since for 40 MHz device,it should serve not only 20 MHz but also 40 MHz signals receiving.Both energy detection and carrier sense are employed to detect channel state.In the case of 20/40 M mode,the power difference between the two sub-channels is also detected in order to report the channel state accurately.The simulation results demonstrate that the performance of the proposed methods are much better than the methods which just employ energy detection.Besides,the simulation results show that the proposed methods ensure that the channel sensing is not a roadblock of IEEE 802.11n system design.

    2016-09-01

    Memory effects play a fundamental role in the study of the dynamics of open quantum systems. There exist two conceptually distinct notions of memory discussed for quantum channels in the literature. In quantum information theory quantum channels with memory are characterized by the existence of correlations between successive applications of the channel on a sequence of quantum systems. In open quantum systems theory memory effects arise dynamically during the time evolution of quantum systems and define non-Markovian dynamics. Here we relate and combine these two different concepts of memory. In particular, we study the interplay between correlations between multiple uses of quantum channels and non-Markovianity as nondivisibility of the t -parametrized family of channels defining the dynamical map.

    2009-01-01

    Multiple-antenna broadcast channels with $M$ transmit antennas and $K$ single-antenna receivers is considered, where the channel of receiver $r$ takes one of the $J_r$ finite values. It is assumed that the channel states of each receiver are randomly selected from $\\mathcal{R}^{M\\times 1}$. It is shown that no matter what $J_r$ is, the degrees of freedom (DoF) of $\\frac{MK}{M+K-1}$ is achievable. The achievable scheme relies on the idea of interference alignment at receivers, without exploiting the possibility of cooperation among transmit antennas. It is proven that if $J_r \\geq M$, $r=1,...,K$, this scheme achieves the optimal DoF. This results implies that when the uncertainty of the base station about the channel realization is considerable, the system loses the gain of cooperation. However, it still benefits from the gain of interference alignment. In fact, in this case, the compound broadcast channel is treated as a compound X channel. Moreover, it is shown that when the base station knows the channel s...

    This paper describes a channel estimation and equalization algorithm using three-layer artificial neural networks (ANNs) with feedback for multiple input multiple output wireless communication systems.An ANN structure with feedback was designed to use different learning algorithms in the different ANN layers. This actually forms a Turbo iteration process between the different algorithms which effectively improves the estimation performance of the channel equalizer. Simulation results show that this channel equalization algorithm has better computational efficiency and faster convergence than higher order statistics based algorithms.

    Drastic improvements in transmission rate and system capacity are required towards 5th generation mobile communications (5G). One promising approach, utilizing the millimeter wave band for its rich spectrum resources, suffers area coverage shortfalls due to its large propagation loss. Fortunately, massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) can offset this shortfall as well as offer high order spatial multiplexing gain. Multiuser MIMO is also effective in further enhancing system capacity by multiplexing spatially de-correlated users. However, the transmission performance of multiuser MIMO is strongly degraded by channel time variation, which causes inter-user interference since null steering must be performed at the transmitter. This paper first addresses the effectiveness of multiuser massive MIMO transmission that exploits the first eigenmode for each user. In Line-of-Sight (LoS) dominant channel environments, the first eigenmode is chiefly formed by the LoS component, which is highly correlated with user movement. Therefore, the first eigenmode provided by a large antenna array can improve the robustness against the channel time variation. In addition, we propose a simplified beamforming scheme based on high efficient channel state information (CSI) estimation that extracts the LoS component. We also show that this approximate beamforming can achieve throughput performance comparable to that of the rigorous first eigenmode transmission. Our proposed multiuser massive MIMO scheme can open the door for practical millimeter wave communication with enhanced system capacity.

  3. A Bayesian matching pursuit based scheduling algorithm for feedback reduction in MIMO broadcast channels

    KAUST Repository

    2013-06-01

    Opportunistic schedulers rely on the feedback of all users in order to schedule a set of users with favorable channel conditions. While the downlink channels can be easily estimated at all user terminals via a single broadcast, several key challenges are faced during uplink transmission. First of all, the statistics of the noisy and fading feedback channels are unknown at the base station (BS) and channel training is usually required from all users. Secondly, the amount of network resources (air-time) required for feedback transmission grows linearly with the number of users. In this paper, we tackle the above challenges and propose a Bayesian based scheduling algorithm that 1) reduces the air-time required to identify the strong users, and 2) is agnostic to the statistics of the feedback channels and utilizes the a priori statistics of the additive noise to identify the strong users. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithm reduces the feedback air-time while improving detection in the presence of fading and noisy channels when compared to recent compressed sensing based algorithms. Furthermore, the proposed algorithm achieves a sum-rate throughput close to that obtained by noiseless dedicated feedback systems. © 2013 IEEE.

  4. Capacity Bounds and High-SNR Capacity of MIMO Intensity-Modulation Optical Channels

    KAUST Repository

    2017-06-01

    The capacity of the intensity modulation direct detection multiple-input multiple-output channel is studied. Therein, the nonnegativity constraint of the transmit signal limits the applicability of classical schemes, including precoding. Thus, new ways are required for deriving capacity lower and upper bounds for this channel. To this end, capacity lower bounds are developed by deriving the achievable rates of two precoding-free schemes: Channel inversion and QR decomposition. The achievable rate of a DC-offset SVD-based scheme is also derived as a benchmark. Then, capacity upper bounds are derived and compared against the lower bounds. As a result, the capacity at high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is characterized for the case where the number of transmit apertures is not larger than the number of receive apertures, and is shown to be achievable by the QR decomposition scheme. This is shown for a channel with average intensity or peak intensity constraints. For a channel with both constraints, the high-SNR capacity is approximated within a small gap. Extensions to a channel with more transmit apertures than receive apertures are discussed, and capacity bounds for this case are derived.

    It was demonstrated that the entanglement evolution of a specially designed quantum state in the bistochastic channel is asymmetric. In this work, we generalize the study of the quantum correlations, including entanglement and quantum discord, evolution asymmetry to various quantum channels. We found that the asymmetry of entanglement and quantum discord only occurs in some special quantum channels, and the behavior of the entanglement evolution may be quite different from the behavior of the quantum discord evolution. To quantum entanglement, in some channels it decreases monotonously with the increase of the quantum channel intensity. In some other channels, when we increase the intensity of the quantum channel, it decreases at first, then keeps zero for some time, and then rises up. To quantum discord, the evolution becomes more complex and you may find that it evolutes unsmoothly at some points. These results illustrate the strong dependence of the quantum correlations evolution on the property of the quantum channels.

  6. Application of Cross-correlation Greens Function along with FDTD for Fast Computation of Envelope Correlation Coefficient over Wideband for MIMO Antennas

    CERN Document Server

    Sarkar, Debdeep

    2016-01-01

    In this paper, the concept of cross-correlation Green's functions (CGF) is used in conjunction with the finite difference time domain (FDTD) technique for calculation of envelope correlation coefficient (ECC) of any arbitrary MIMO antenna system over wide frequency band. Both frequency-domain (FD) and time-domain (TD) post-processing techniques are proposed for possible application with this FDTD-CGF scheme. The FDTD-CGF time-domain (FDTD-CGF-TD) scheme utilizes time-domain signal processing methods and exhibits significant reduction in ECC computation time as compared to the FDTD-CGF frequency domain (FDTD-CGF-FD) scheme, for high frequency-resolution requirements. The proposed FDTD-CGF based schemes can be applied for accurate and fast prediction of wideband ECC response, instead of the conventional scattering parameter based techniques which have several limitations. Numerical examples of the proposed FDTD-CGF techniques are provided for two-element MIMO systems involving thin-wire half-wavelength dipoles ...

    2011-06-01

    This paper presents an analytical performance investigation of the capacity limits of correlated multiple-input single-output (MISO) channels in the presence of quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. Exact closed-form expression for the effective capacity of correlated MISO channels is derived. In addition, simple expressions are obtained at the asymptotic high and low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regimes, which provide insights into the impact of various system parameters on the effective capacity of the system. Also, a complete characterization of the impact of spatial correlation on the effective capacity is provided with the aid of a majorization theory result. The findings suggest that antenna correlation reduce the effective capacity of the channels. Moreover, a stringent QoS requirement causes a significant reduction in the effective capacity but this can be effectively alleviated by increasing the number of antennas. © 2011 IEEE.

    2011-01-01

    This work investigates the effect of finite-alphabet source input on the secrecy rate of a multi-antenna wiretap system. Existing works have characterized maximum achievable secrecy rate or secrecy capacity for single and multiple antenna systems based on Gaussian source signals and secrecy code. Despite the impracticality of Gaussian sources, the compact closed-form expression of mutual information between linear channel Gaussian input and corresponding output has led to broad application of Gaussian input assumption in physical secrecy analysis. For practical considerations, we study the effect of finite discrete-constellation on the achievable secrecy rate of multiple-antenna wire-tap channels. Our proposed precoding scheme converts the multi-antenna system into a bank of parallel channels. Based on this precoding strategy, we propose a decentralized power allocation algorithm based on dual decomposition for maximizing the achievable secrecy rate. In addition, we analyze the achievable secrecy rate for fin...

The main antenna is printed on a 1.6 mm thick FR4 board, while the auxiliary antenna is fabricated with gold-coated copper. A lumped impedance network is applied to enhance matching effect at port1. From simulations by commercial software, it can be found that the proposed antenna is able to cover GSM800, GSM900 (lower band, and LTE/ WiMAX/WLAN (higher band quite well. Good agreements between simulations and measurements are obtained. Corresponding measured results, antenna efficiency, peak gain, and radiation patterns, are presented at the same time. By equipping a passive decoupling element, the coupling power on the ground is radiated into free space, and great enhancement of isolation between antenna elements, especially for lower band, is achieved.

    2007-01-01

    In this two-part paper, we consider the multiantenna multihop relay channels in which the source signal arrives at the destination through N independent relaying hops in series. The main concern of this work is to design relaying strategies that utilize efficiently the relays in such a way that the diversity is maximized. In part I, we focus on the amplify-and-forward (AF) strategy with which the relays simply scale the received signal and retransmit it. More specifically, we characterize the diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) of the AF scheme in a general multihop channel with arbitrary number of antennas and arbitrary number of hops. The DMT is in closed-form expression as a function of the number of antennas at each node. First, we provide some basic results on the DMT of the general Rayleigh product channels. It turns out that these results have very simple and intuitive interpretation. Then, the results are applied to the AF multihop channels which is shown to be equivalent to the Rayleigh product cha...

    This paper investigates the linear precoder design that maximizes the average mutual information of multiple-input multiple-output channels with finite-alphabet inputs and statistical channel state information known at the transmitter. This linear precoder design is an important open problem and is extremely difficult to solve: First, average mutual information lacks closed-form expression and involves complicated computations; Second, the optimization problem over precoder is nonconcave. This study explores the solution to this problem and provides the following contributions: 1) A closed-form lower bound of average mutual information is derived. It achieves asymptotic optimality at low and high signal-to-noise ratio regions and, with a constant shift, offers an accurate approximation to the average mutual information; 2) The optimal structure of the precoder is revealed, and a unified two-step iterative algorithm is proposed to solve this problem. Numerical examples show the convergence and the efficacy of ...

    Filter⁃bank multicarrier (FBMC) with offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OQAM) is a candidate waveform for future wireless communications due to its advantages over orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. However, because of or⁃thogonality in real field and the presence of imaginary intrinsic interference, channel estimation in FBMC is not as straightforward as OFDM systems especially in multiple antenna scenarios. In this paper, we propose a channel estimation method which employs intrinsic interference cancellation at the transmitter side. The simulation results show that this method has less pilot overhead, less peak to average power ratio (PAPR), better bit error rate (BER), and better mean square error (MSE) performance compared to the well⁃known intrinsic approximation methods (IAM).

    2015-06-01

    We consider the detection and estimation of a zero-mean Gaussian signal in a wireless sensor network with a coherent multiple access channel, when the fusion center (FC) is configured with a large number of antennas and the wireless channels between the sensor nodes and FC experience Rayleigh fading. For the detection problem, we study the Neyman-Pearson (NP) Detector and Energy Detector (ED), and find optimal values for the sensor transmission gains. For the NP detector which requires channel state information (CSI), we show that detection performance remains asymptotically constant with the number of FC antennas if the sensor transmit power decreases proportionally with the increase in the number of antennas. Performance bounds show that the benefit of multiple antennas at the FC disappears as the transmit power grows. The results of the NP detector are also generalized to the linear minimum mean squared error estimator. For the ED which does not require CSI, we derive optimal gains that maximize the deflection coefficient of the detector, and we show that a constant deflection can be asymptotically achieved if the sensor transmit power scales as the inverse square root of the number of FC antennas. Unlike the NP detector, for high sensor power the multi-antenna ED is observed to empirically have significantly better performance than the single-antenna implementation. A number of simulation results are included to validate the analysis.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Security issue has been considered as one of the most pivotal aspects for the fifth-generation mobile network (5G due to the increasing demands of security service as well as the growing occurrence of security threat. In this paper, instead of focusing on the security architecture in the upper layer, we investigate the secure transmission for a basic channel model in a heterogeneous network, that is, two-way relay channels. By exploiting the properties of the transmission medium in the physical layer, we propose a novel secure scheme for the aforementioned channel mode. With precoding design, the proposed scheme is able to achieve a high transmission efficiency as well as security. Two different approaches have been introduced: information theoretical approach and physical layer encryption approach. We show that our scheme is secure under three different adversarial models: (1 untrusted relay attack model, (2 trusted relay with eavesdropper attack model, and (3 untrusted relay with eavesdroppers attack model. We also derive the secrecy capacity of the two different approaches under the three attacks. Finally, we conduct three simulations of our proposed scheme. The simulation results agree with the theoretical analysis illustrating that our proposed scheme could achieve a better performance than the existing schemes.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available We investigate the optimal design of uniform rectangular arrays (URAs employed in multiple-input multiple-output communications, where a strong line-of-sight (LOS component is present. A general geometrical model is introduced to model the LOS component, which allows for any orientation of the transmit and receive arrays, and incorporates the uniform linear array as a special case of the URA. A spherical wave propagation model is used. Based on this model, we derive the optimal array design equations with respect to mutual information, resulting in orthogonal LOS subchannels. The equations reveal that it is the distance between the antennas projected onto the plane perpendicular to the transmission direction that is of importance with respect to design. Further, we investigate the influence of nonoptimal design, and derive analytical expressions for the singular values of the LOS matrix as a function of the quality of the array design. To evaluate a more realistic channel, the LOS channel matrix is employed in a Ricean channel model. Performance results show that even with some deviation from the optimal design, we get better performance than in the case of uncorrelated Rayleigh subchannels.

    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channels (BCs) (MIMO-BCs) with perfect channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter are considered. As joint user selection (US) and vector precoding (VP) (US-VP) with zero-forcing transmit beamforming (ZF-BF), US and continuous VP (CVP) (US-CVP) and data-dependent US (DD-US) are investigated. The replica method, developed in statistical physics, is used to analyze the energy penalties for the two US-VP schemes in the large-system limit, where the number of users, the number of selected users, and the number of transmit antennas tend to infinity with their ratios kept constant. Four observations are obtained in the large-system limit: First, the assumptions of replica symmetry (RS) and 1-step replica symmetry breaking (1RSB) for DD-US can provide acceptable approximations for low and moderate system loads, respectively. Secondly, DD-US outperforms CVP with random US in terms of the energy penalty for low-to-moderate system loads. Thirdly, the asymptotic en...

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available We investigate in this paper the effects of the user's presence on the performance of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO system in data and in voice usage scenarios. The investigation studies the user effects on the antenna performance and how these are incorporated into the MIMO channel and the link characteristics. The antennas and the user are deterministic. These are then integrated into the statistical 3GPP spatial channel model (SCM for a typical macrocell propagation environment setting. The channel performance is analyzed based on the average channel capacity, the average power transfer, the correlation, and the cumulative distribution function of the channel capacity as well as the link throughout and the error performance. The mentioned channel and link properties are tied to the MIMO antenna properties that are represented in the mutual coupling between the antennas, the power loss, the total radiated power, the mean effective gain (MEG, as well as the efficiency with emphasis on how the user affects each. It was found that the presence of the user contributed to a loss of up to 50% in the average channel power transfer. The data position was found to be the lowest in terms of channel capacity performance. The voice position performance showed a large dependence on the user orientation with respect to the line of sight path while the data position showed less dependence on the user's orientation. We also discuss through the examined antenna and channel properties the importance of the channel multipath on the MIMO performance. In some scenarios, it was found that a well-conditioned channel can compensate for losses due to the presence of the user, improving the overall system performance. The presented investigation at the link level also discusses the user effects in different MIMO transmission schemes.

    This paper re-examines the well-known fundamental tradeoffs between rate and reliability for the multi-antenna, block Rayleigh fading channel in the high signal to noise ratio (SNR) regime when (i) the transmitter has access to (noiseless) one bit per coherence-interval of causal channel state information (CSI) and (ii) soft decoding delays together with worst-case delay guarantees are acceptable. A key finding of this work is that substantial improvements in reliability can be realized with a very short expected delay and a slightly longer (but bounded) worst-case decoding delay guarantee in communication systems where the transmitter has access to even one bit per coherence interval of causal CSI. While similar in spirit to the recent work on communication systems based on automatic repeat requests (ARQ) where decoding failure is known at the transmitter and leads to re-transmission, here transmit side-information is purely based on CSI. The findings reported here also lend further support to an emerging un...

    2011-01-01

    We consider a homogeneous multiple cellular scenario with multiple users per cell, i.e., $K\\geq 1$ where $K$ denotes the number of users in a cell. In this scenario, a degrees of freedom outer bound as well as an achievable scheme that attains the degrees of freedom outer bound of the multicell multiple access channel (MAC) with constant channel coefficients are investigated. The users have $M$ antennas, and the base stations are equipped with $N$ antennas. The found outer bound is general in that it characterizes a degrees of freedom upper bound for $K\\geq 1$ and $L>1$ where $L$ denotes the number of cells. The achievability of the degrees of freedom outer bound is studied for two cell case (i.e., L=2). The achievable schemes that attains the degrees of freedom outer bound for L=2 are based on two approaches. The first scheme is a simple zero forcing with $M=K\\beta+\\beta$ and $N=K\\beta$, and the second approach is null space interference alignment with $M=K\\beta$ and $N=K\\beta+\\beta$ where $\\beta>0$ is a pos...

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ghassemlooy, Zabih; Popoola, Wasiu O.; Ahmadi, Vahid; Leitgeb, Erich

    In this paper, we analyse the error performance of transmitter/receiver array free-space optical (FSO) communication system employing binary phase shift keying (BPSK) subcarrier intensity modulation (SIM) in clear but turbulent atmospheric channel. Subcarrier modulation is employed to eliminate the need for adaptive threshold detector. Direct detection is employed at the receiver and each subcarrier is subsequently demodulated coherently. The effect of irradiance fading is mitigated with an array of lasers and photodetectors. The received signals are linearly combined using the optimal maximum ratio combining (MRC), the equal gain combining (EGC) and the selection combining (SelC). The bit error rate (BER) equations are derived considering additive white Gaussian noise and log normal intensity fluctuations. This work is part of the EU COST actions and EU projects.

    KAUST Repository

    Qaraqe, Khalid A.

    2010-09-01

    In this paper a novel reduced complexity detection method named modified symbol flipping method is introduced and its advantages on reducing the burden of the calculations at the receiver compared to the optimum maximum likelihood detection method on multiple input- multiple output frequency selective fading channels are explained. The initial concept of the symbol flipping method is derived from a preliminary detection scheme named bit flipping which was introduced in [1]. The detection structure employed in this paper is ing, detection, and cancellation. On the detection stage, the proposed method is employed and the results are compared to the group maximum likelihood detection scheme proposed in [2]. Simulation results show that a 6 dB performance gain can be achieved at the expense of a slight increase in complexity in comparison with the conventional symbol flipping scheme. © 2010 Crown.

  7. Achievable Rate of a Cognitive MIMO Multiple Access Channel With Multi-Secondary Users

    KAUST Repository

    2015-03-01

    We study the secondary sum-rate of an underlay cognitive multiple access channel consisting of a primary user and multiple secondary users (SUs) communicating with a common destination. We propose a particular linear precoding and SU selection scheme that maximize the cognitive sum-rate. This scheme is based on space alignment strategy allowing SUs to share the spectrum without interfering with each other. We derive the optimal power allocation for each selected SU after applying perfect or imperfect successive interference cancellation. Numerical results show that the proposed scheme provides a significant sum-rate improvement as the number of SUs increases. In addition, it achieves almost the same performance as an exhaustive search selection, mainly in low and high power ranges. © 1997-2012 IEEE.

  9. Diversity of MMSE MIMO Receivers

    CERN Document Server

    Mehana, Ahmed Hesham

    2011-01-01

    In most MIMO systems, the family of waterfall error curves, calculated at different spectral efficiencies, are asymptotically parallel at high SNR. In other words, most MIMO systems exhibit a single diversity value for all {\\em fixed} rates. The MIMO MMSE receiver does not follow this pattern and exhibits a varying diversity in its family of error curves. This effect cannot be captured by DMT analysis, due to the fact that all fixed rates correspond to the same multiplexing gain, thus they cannot be differentiated within DMT analysis. This work analyzes this interesting behavior of the MMSE MIMO receiver and produces the MMSE MIMO diversity at each rate. The diversity of the quasi-static flat-fading MIMO channel consisting of any arbitrary number of transmit and receive antennas is fully characterized, showing that full spatial diversity is possible for all antenna configurations if and only if the rate is within a certain bound which is a function of the number of antennas. For other rate brackets, the avail...

    Science.gov (United States)

    Costa, D.; de Almeida, N. G.; Villas-Boas, C. J.

    2016-10-01

    We propose a secure protocol to send quantum information from one part to another without a quantum channel. In our protocol, which resembles quantum teleportation, a sender (Alice) and a receiver (Bob) share classical correlated states instead of EPR ones, with Alice performing measurements in two different bases and then communicating her results to Bob through a classical channel. Our secure quantum communication protocol requires the same amount of classical bits as the standard quantum teleportation protocol. In our scheme, as in the usual quantum teleportation protocol, once the classical channel is established in a secure way, a spy (Eve) will never be able to recover the information of the unknown quantum state, even if she is aware of Alice's measurement results. Security, advantages, and limitations of our protocol are discussed and compared with the standard quantum teleportation protocol.

  11. MIMO Precoding for Networked Control Systems with Energy Harvesting Sensors

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cai, Songfu; Lau, Vincent K. N.

    2016-09-01

    In this paper, we consider a MIMO networked control system with an energy harvesting sensor, where an unstable MIMO dynamic system is connected to a controller via a MIMO fading channel. We focus on the energy harvesting and MIMO precoding design at the sensor so as to stabilize the unstable MIMO dynamic plant subject to the energy availability constraint at the sensor. Using the Lyapunov optimization approach, we propose a closed-form dynamic energy harvesting and dynamic MIMO precoding solution, which has an event-driven control structure. Furthermore, the MIMO precoding solution is shown to have an eigenvalue water-filling structure, where the water level depends on the state estimation covariance, energy queue and the channel state, and the sea bed level depends on the state estimation covariance. The proposed scheme is also compared with various baselines and we show that significant performance gains can be achieved.

  12. Performance Analysis of Dual-hop MIMO Relay Systems with MRT&RAS in the Presence of Co-channel Interference

    Xu, Xiaoming; Cai, Yueming; Yang, Weiwei

    2013-09-01

    This paper focuses on the downlink dual-hop multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) amplify-and-forward (AF) relay systems that employ the maximal-ratio transmission and receive antenna selection scheme (MRT&RAS) for use in each hop. The system under consideration is equipped with arbitrary NS, NR, and ND antennas at the base station (BS), relay station (RS), and mobile station (MS), respectively. The system performance has been investigated over Nakagami-m fading in presence of independent but not necessarily identically distributed co-channel interferences (CCIs) at both the RS and MS. First, we derive an accurate closed-form approximate expression for the outage probability and a single-integral expression for the average symbol error rate (SER), respectively. Besides, to render direct insights into the combined effect of multiple-antenna and interference on the system performance, the asymptotic expressions for the outage probability and the average SER are also presented. Furthermore, we determine the optimal power allocation (OPA) by using the exact and asymptotic methods, respectively, such that the outage probability is minimized. Finally, numerical results validate the correctness of the derived expressions and show that OPA offers superior performance over uniform power allocation. Our analysis and results provide insights on investigating and optimizing the performance of the downlink MIMO relay transmission in practical interference-limited wireless networks.

  13. GPUbased, Microsecond Latency, HectoChannel MIMO Feedback Control of Magnetically Confined Plasmas

    Science.gov (United States)

    Rath, Nikolaus

    Feedback control has become a crucial tool in the research on magnetic confinement of plasmas for achieving controlled nuclear fusion. This thesis presents a novel plasma feedback control system that, for the first time, employs a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for microsecond-latency, real-time control computations. This novel application area for GPU computing is opened up by a new system architecture that is optimized for low-latency computations on less than kilobyte sized data samples as they occur in typical plasma control algorithms. In contrast to traditional GPU computing approaches that target complex, high-throughput computations with massive amounts of data, the architecture presented in this thesis uses the GPU as the primary processing unit rather than as an auxiliary of the CPU, and data is transferred from A-D/D-A converters directly into GPU memory using peer-to-peer PCI Express transfers. The described design has been implemented in a new, GPU-based control system for the High-Beta Tokamak - Extended Pulse (HBT-EP) device. The system is built from commodity hardware and uses an NVIDIA GeForce GPU and D-TACQ A-D/D-A converters providing a total of 96 input and 64 output channels. The system is able to run with sampling periods down to 4 μs and latencies down to 8 μs. The GPU provides a total processing power of 1.5 x 1012 floating point operations per second. To illustrate the performance and versatility of both the general architecture and concrete implementation, a new control algorithm has been developed. The algorithm is designed for the control of multiple rotating magnetic perturbations in situations where the plasma equilibrium is not known exactly and features an adaptive system model: instead of requiring the rotation frequencies and growth rates embedded in the system model to be set a priori, the adaptive algorithm derives these parameters from the evolution of the perturbation amplitudes themselves. This results in non-linear control

    Burnier, Y

    2013-01-01

    The bulk viscosity of thermalized QCD matter at temperatures above a few hundred MeV could be significantly influenced by charm quarks because their contribution arises four perturbative orders before purely gluonic effects. In an attempt to clarify the challenges of a lattice study, we determine the relevant imaginary-time correlator (of massive scalar densities) up to NLO in perturbation theory, and compare with existing data. We find discrepancies much larger than in the vector channel; this may hint, apart from the importance of taking a continuum limit, to larger non-perturbative effects in the scalar channel. We also recall how a transport peak related to the scalar density spectral function encodes non-perturbative information concerning the charm quark chemical equilibration rate close to equilibrium.

    2015-09-28

    We consider secret-key agreement with public discussion over multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Rayleigh fast-fading channels under correlated environment. We assume that transmit, legitimate receiver and eavesdropper antennas are correlated. The legitimate receiver and the eavesdropper are assumed to have perfect channel knowledge while the transmitter has only knowledge of the correlation matrices. First, we derive the expression of the secret-key capacity under the considered setup. We prove that the optimal transmit strategy achieving the secret-key capacity consists in transmitting independent Gaussian signals along the eingenvectors of the transmit correlation matrix. The powers allocated to each channel mode are determined as the solution to a numerical optimization problem. A necessary and sufficient condition for beamforming (i.e., transmitting along the strongest channel mode) to be capacity-achieving is derived. Moreover, we analyze the impact of correlation matrices on the system performance. Finally, we study the system’s performance in the two extreme power regimes. In the high-power regime, we provide closed-form expressions of the gain/loss due to correlation. In the low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime, we investigate the energy efficiency of the system by determining the minimum energy required for sharing a secret-key bit and the wideband slope while highlighting the impact of correlation matrices.

    In this paper, taking into account realistic propagation conditions, namely, spatial correlation, keyhole channels, and unequal-power co-channel interference, we investigate the performance of a wireless relay network where all the nodes are equipped with multiple antennas. Considering channel state information assisted amplify-and-forward protocol, we present analytical expressions for the symbol error rate (SER) and outage probability. More specifically, we first derive the SER expressions of a relay system with orthogonal space-time block coding (OSTBC) over correlated/keyhole fading channels. We also analyze the outage probability of interference corrupted relay systems with maximal ratio combing (MRC) at the receiver as well as multiple-input multiple-output MRC (MIMO MRC). Numerical results are given to illustrate and verify the analytical results. © 2012 IEEE.

    2008-01-01

    MIMO technology proposed in recent years can effectively combat the multipath fading of wireless channel and can considerably enlarge the channel capacity, which has been investigated widely by researchers. However, its performance analysis over correlated block-fading Rayleigh channel is still an open and challenging objective. In this article, an analytic expression of bit error rate (BER) is presented for multiple phase shift keying (MPSK) space-time code, with differential detection over correlated block-fading Rayleigh channel. Through theoretical analysis of BER, it can be found that the differential space-time scheme without the need for channel state information (CSI) at receiver achieves distinct performance gain compared with the traditional nonspace-time system. And then, the system simulation is complimented to verify the above result, showing that the diversity system based on the differential space-time block coding (DSTBC) outperforms the traditional nonspace- time system with diversity gain in terms of BER. Furthermore, the numerical results also demonstrate that the error floor of the differential space-time system is much lower than that of the differential nonspace-time system.

  3. Impact of channel estimation error on channel capacity of multiple input multiple output system

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    In order to investigate the impact of channel estimation error on channel capacity of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system, a novel method is proposed to explore the channel capacity in correlated Rayleigh fading environment. A system model is constructed based on the channel estimation error at receiver side. Using the properties of Wishart distribution, the lower bound of the channel capacity is derived when the MIMO channel is of full rank. Then a method is proposed to select the optimum set of transmit antennas based on the lower bound of the mean channel capacity. The novel method can be easily implemented with low computational complexity. The simulation results show that the channel capacity of MIMO system is sensitive to channel estimation error, and is maximized when the signal-to-noise ratio increases to a certain point. Proper selection of transmit antennas can increase the channel capacity of MIMO system by about 1 bit/s in a flat fading environment with deficient rank of channel matrix.

    Full Text Available With MIMO technology being adopted by the wireless communication standards LTE and HSPA+, MIMO OTA research has attracted wide interest from both industry and academia. Parallel studies are underway in COST2100, CTIA, and 3GPP RAN WG4. The major test challenge for MIMO OTA is how to create a repeatable scenario which accurately reflects the MIMO antenna radiation performance in a realistic wireless propagation environment. Different MIMO OTA methods differ in the way to reproduce a specified MIMO channel model. This paper introduces a novel, flexible, and cost-effective method for measuring MIMO OTA using a two-stage approach. In the first stage, the antenna pattern is measured in an anechoic chamber using a nonintrusive approach, that is without cabled connections or modifying the device. In the second stage, the antenna pattern is convolved with the chosen channel model in a channel emulator to measure throughput using a cabled connection.

    A general formula for the mutual information of the Pauli channels with memory modelled by correlated noise is derived.It is shown that the mutual information depends on the channel shrinking factor,the input state parameter and the channel memory coefficient.The analyses based on the general formula reveal that the entanglement is always a useful resource to enhance the mutual information of some.Pauli channels,such as the bit flip channel and the bit-phase flip channel.Our analyses also show that the entanglement is not advantageous to the reliable transmission of classical information for Borne Pauli channels at any time,such as the phase flip channel and the phase damping channel.

    This paper establishes the classic linear model of signal of the MIMO radar system with distributed apertures.Based on this model,the design principle and detection performance of MIMO radar detector is investigated under conditions of Gaussian colored noise and partially correlated observation channels.First,the research on design principle of detector shows that the clutter suppression and matched filtering can be independently implemented at each receiving aperture,which greatly reduces the difficulty in implementation of these detectors.Based on these results,a Max detector is proposed for the case where partial channels are disabled due to strong noise and stealth techniques.The second part is the performance analysis of detector.The Fishier divergence coefficient and the statistical equivalent decomposition of limit statistics are used to theoretically analyze the detection performance of AMF detector,and then the analytical expressions of the detection performance of the AMF detector is derived.Analysis results show that both the colored nature of noise and the correlation among observation channels can reduce the capability of spatial diversity of the MIMO radar system,change the target RCSs among observation channels from quick fluctuation to slow fluctuation,and degenerate the detection performance of this radar system into that of the phased array radar system at high signal-to-noise ratio.

    The convergence speed of traditional subspace-based blind channel estimation is slow and has a good estimating quality only by receiving a large number of signals.

It extracts a set of vectors to reduce the number of dimensions in OFDM signals and then adds pilot sequence to form a new semi-blind channel estimation method in blind channel estimation method.By computer modeling and simulation, it can be found that newly promoted blind channel estimation method and semi-blind channel estimation method work better in channel estimation and convergence.%传统的子空间盲信道估计收敛速度缓慢且需要大量接收信号才能保证估计性能良好,就此问题提出了一种新的基于虚拟载波(VC)的MIMO-OFDM系统的盲信道估计算法。该算法是传统子空间算法与块矩阵思想的结合,在每个OFDM符号中提取一组子矢量来降低维度。而后又在盲信道估计算法中加入导频序列形成新的半盲信道估计算法。通过计算机模拟仿真发现,新提出的盲信道和半盲信道估计算法在信道估计性能和收敛性方面均表现较好。

    Santiago González-Aurioles

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Wireless channels are commonly affected by short-term fading and long-term fading (shadowing. The shadowing effects must be taken into account also when mobility is present in the wireless scenario. Using a composite fading model, the total channel capacity can be studied for a scenario with short-term Rayleigh fading along with shadowing. This work provides quantitative results for these kinds of scenarios with Rayleigh fading and shadowing, considering also multiple-input and multiple-output systems, which have not been previously reported. In addition, the channel capacity has been studied in depth in its relation with the shadowing level, signal to noise ratio, and the number of elements in the multiple-input and multiple-output system. Moreover, the channel performance with shadowing has been compared to the one without it. Furthermore, Rician model with shadowing is studied and its results are reported. In addition, correlated and experimental results are provided. It is identified that the distributed MIMO systems can benefit from shadowing in Rician channels. This advantage has not been reported previously. This type of fading is proposed for massive MIMO by others and our results open the door to emulate massive MIMO on a reverberation chamber.

    Full Text Available Problem statement: Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO wireless communication system is an innovative solution to improve the bandwidth efficiency by exploiting multipath-richness of the propagation environment. The degree of multipath-richness of the channel will determine the capacity gain attainable by MIMO deployment. Approach: Therefore, it is very important to have accurate knowledge of the propagation environment/radio channel before MIMO implement. The radio channel behavior can be anticipated by channel measurement or channel sounding. Code Division Multiplexing (CDM is one of the channel sounding techniques that allow accurate measurement at the cost of hardware complexity. CDM based channel sounder, requires code with excellent auto-correlation and cross-correlation properties which generally difficult to be achieved simultaneously. Results: In this study, an efficient transmitter for CDM-based 2×2 MIMO channel sounding technique with Loosely Synchronous (LS codes is designed. Simulation results shows that the channel sounding scheme using LS codes gives very good performance for measuring 2×2 MIMO channel behavior. The BPSK transmitter is designed using MATLAB, Verilog and Xilinx system generator blocks. Conclusion: The whole design is simulated as a single ISE project by using ModelSim simulation tool and compiled using ISE 9.2. However the proposed design of transmitter using LS code of length 8190 bits can measure multipath delay of minimum 0.13 μs and maximum 520 μs.

    2017-02-07

    In this paper, we investigate the channel correlation problem which affects the performance of indoor multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) visible light communication (VLC) systems. More specifically, in order to reduce the high correlation of channel matrix in MIMO-VLC intensity channel, we propose a non-imaging receiver called angle-aided mirror diversity receiver (AMDR) which utilizes not only a mirror placement but also a variation of orientation angle for the photodetector (PD) plane. Deploying a mirror helps reducing the correlation by blocking the reception of the light in one specific direction and by receiving additional light reflected in the mirror in another direction, while orienting the angle of PD plane into specific direction enables the directional reception of light. Applying a zero-forcing decorrelator at the receiver, we analyze the bit error rate (BER) performance for a 2×2 multiplexing MIMO-VLC system using a 2-dimensional geometric model. In particular, we formulate a min-max BER problem and find the optimal height of mirror and elevation angle of PD plane. Some selected numerical results validate our proposed optimal solution to our min-max BER problem and show that the BER performance of our proposed AMDR outperforms that of the previous non-imaging receivers.

    This paper proposes a subspace-based noise variance and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) estimation algorithm for Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) wireless Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The special training sequences with the property of orthogonality and phase shift orthogonality are used in pilot tones to obtain the estimated channel correlation matrix. Partitioning the observation space into a delay subspace and a noise subspace, we achieve the measurement of noise variance and SNR.Simulation results show that the proposed estimator can obtain accurate and real-time measurements of the noise variance and SNR for various multipath fading channels, demonstrating its strong robustness against different channels.

    2016-05-01

    Utilizing channel reciprocity, time reversal (TR) technique increases the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the receiver with very low transmitter complexity in complex multipath environment. Present research works about TR multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication all focus on the system implementation and network building. The aim of this work is to analyze the influence of antenna coupling on the capacity of wideband TR MIMO system, which is a realistic question in designing a practical communication system. It turns out that antenna coupling stabilizes the capacity in a small variation range with statistical wideband channel response. Meanwhile, antenna coupling only causes a slight detriment to the channel capacity in a wideband TR MIMO system. Comparatively, uncorrelated stochastic channels without coupling exhibit a wider range of random capacity distribution which greatly depends on the statistical channel. The conclusions drawn from information difference entropy theory provide a guideline for designing better high-performance wideband TR MIMO communication systems.

    We consider a model of a bosonic memory channel, which induces correlations among the transmitted signals. The application of suitable unitary transformations at the encoding and decoding stages allows the complete removal of correlations, thereby mapping the memory channel into a memoryless one. However, such transformations, being global over an arbitrarily large number of bosonic modes, are not realistically implementable. We then introduce a family of efficiently realizable transformations, which can be used to partially remove correlations among errors, and we quantify the reduction of the gap with memoryless channels.

  3. Optimal Performance Monitoring of Hybrid Mid-Infrared Wavelength MIMO Free Space Optical and RF Wireless Networks in Fading Channels

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schmidt, Barnet Michael

    An optimal performance monitoring metric for a hybrid free space optical and radio-frequency (RF) wireless network, the Outage Capacity Objective Function, is analytically developed and studied. Current and traditional methods of performance monitoring of both optical and RF wireless networks are centered on measurement of physical layer parameters, the most common being signal-to-noise ratio, error rate, Q factor, and eye diagrams, occasionally combined with link-layer measurements such as data throughput, retransmission rate, and/or lost packet rate. Network management systems frequently attempt to predict or forestall network failures by observing degradations of these parameters and to attempt mitigation (such as offloading traffic, increasing transmitter power, reducing the data rate, or combinations thereof) prior to the failure. These methods are limited by the frequent low sensitivity of the physical layer parameters to the atmospheric optical conditions (measured by optical signal-to-noise ratio) and the radio frequency fading channel conditions (measured by signal-to-interference ratio). As a result of low sensitivity, measurements of this type frequently are unable to predict impending failures sufficiently in advance for the network management system to take corrective action prior to the failure. We derive and apply an optimal measure of hybrid network performance based on the outage capacity of the hybrid optical and RF channel, the outage capacity objective function. The objective function provides high sensitivity and reliable failure prediction, and considers both the effects of atmospheric optical impairments on the performance of the free space optical segment as well as the effect of RF channel impairments on the radio frequency segment. The radio frequency segment analysis considers the three most common RF channel fading statistics: Rayleigh, Ricean, and Nakagami-m.

  4. A Novel Mirror-Aided Non-imaging Receiver for Indoor 2x2 MIMO Visible Light Communication Systems

    KAUST Repository

    Park, Kihong

    2017-06-07

    Indoor visible light communication (VLC) systems are now possible because of advances in light emitting diode and laser diode technologies. These lighting technologies provide the foundation for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) data transmission through visible light. However, the channel matrix can be strongly correlated in indoor MIMO-VLC systems, preventing parallel data streams from being decoded. Here, in $2\\\\times 2$ MIMO-VLC systems, we describe a mirror diversity receiver (MDR) design that reduces the channel correlation by both blocking the reception of light from one specific direction and improving the channel gain from light from another direction by utilizing a double-sided mirror deployed between the receiver\\'s photodetectors. We report on the channel capacity of the MDR system and the optimal height of its mirrors in terms of maximum channel capacity. We also derived analytic results on the effect of rotation on MDR\\'s performance. Based on numerical and experimental results, we show that the double-sided mirror has both constructive and destructive effects on the channel matrix. Our design can be used with previously described non-imaging systems to improve the performance of indoor VLC systems.

  6. Multipass Channel Estimation and Joint Multiuser Detection and Equalization for MIMO Long-Code DS/CDMA Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Buzzi Stefano

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The problem of joint channel estimation, equalization, and multiuser detection for a multiantenna DS/CDMA system operating over a frequency-selective fading channel and adopting long aperiodic spreading codes is considered in this paper. First of all, we present several channel estimation and multiuser data detection schemes suited for multiantenna long-code DS/CDMA systems. Then, a multipass strategy, wherein the data detection and the channel estimation procedures exchange information in a recursive fashion, is introduced and analyzed for the proposed scenario. Remarkably, this strategy provides, at the price of some attendant computational complexity increase, excellent performance even when very short training sequences are transmitted, and thus couples together the conflicting advantages of both trained and blind systems, that is, good performance and no wasted bandwidth, respectively. Space-time coded systems are also considered, and it is shown that the multipass strategy provides excellent results for such systems also. Likewise, it is also shown that excellent performance is achieved also when each user adopts the same spreading code for all of its transmit antennas. The validity of the proposed procedure is corroborated by both simulation results and analytical findings. In particular, it is shown that adopting the multipass strategy results in a remarkable reduction of the channel estimation mean-square error and of the optimal length of the training sequence.

    This letter investigates the effects of using multiple transmit antennas on code acquisition for preamble search in the CDMA uplink when MIMO is used for signal transmission and reception. The performance of a ML code acquisition technique in the presence of MIMO channel is analyzed by considering the detection and miss probabilities. The acquisition performance is numerically evaluated on a frequency selective fading channel. It is found that the performance of code acquisition scheme for a SIMO system is better than that for the case of MIMO on the low thresholds in terms of detection performance and MAT.

    Khisti, Ashish; Wornell, Gregory

    2009-01-01

    We study the problem of generating a shared secret key between two terminals in a joint source-channel setup -- the sender communicates to the receiver over a discrete memoryless wiretap channel and additionally the terminals have access to correlated discrete memoryless source sequences. We establish lower and upper bounds on the secret-key capacity. These bounds coincide, establishing the capacity, when the underlying channel consists of independent, parallel and reversely degraded wiretap channels. In the lower bound, the equivocation terms of the source and channel components are functionally additive. The secret-key rate is maximized by optimally balancing the the source and channel contributions. This tradeoff is illustrated in detail for the Gaussian case where it is also shown that Gaussian codebooks achieve the capacity. When the eavesdropper also observes a source sequence, the secret-key capacity is established when the sources and channels of the eavesdropper are a degraded version of the legitima...

  9. Precoding Design for Single-RF Massive MIMO Systems: A Large System Analysis

    KAUST Repository

    2016-08-26

    This work revisits a recently proposed precoding design for massive multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) systems that is based on the use of an instantaneous total power constraint. The main advantages of this technique lie in its suitability to the recently proposed single radio frequency (RF) MIMO transmitter coupled with a very-high power efficiency. Such features have been proven using simulations for uncorrelated channels. Based on tools from random matrix theory, we propose in this work to analyze the performance of this precoder for more involved channels accounting for spatial correlation. The obtained expressions are then optimized in order to maximize the signalto- interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). Simulation results are provided in order to illustrate the performance of the optimized precoder in terms of peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR). © 2012 IEEE.

  11. Ion channel noise can explain firing correlation in auditory nerves.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Moezzi, Bahar; Iannella, Nicolangelo; McDonnell, Mark D

    2016-10-01

    Neural spike trains are commonly characterized as a Poisson point process. However, the Poisson assumption is a poor model for spiking in auditory nerve fibres because it is known that interspike intervals display positive correlation over long time scales and negative correlation over shorter time scales. We have therefore developed a biophysical model based on the well-known Meddis model of the peripheral auditory system, to produce simulated auditory nerve fibre spiking statistics that more closely match the firing correlations observed in empirical data. We achieve this by introducing biophysically realistic ion channel noise to an inner hair cell membrane potential model that includes fractal fast potassium channels and deterministic slow potassium channels. We succeed in producing simulated spike train statistics that match empirically observed firing correlations. Our model thus replicates macro-scale stochastic spiking statistics in the auditory nerve fibres due to modeling stochasticity at the micro-scale of potassium channels.

    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems can increase the spectral efficiency in wireless communications. However, the interference becomes the major drawback that leads to high computational complexity at both transmitter and receiver. In particular, the complexity of MIMO receivers can be prohibitively high. As an efficient mathematical tool to devise low complexity approaches that mitigate the interference in MIMO systems, lattice reduction (LR) has been widely studied and employed over the last decade. The co-authors of this book are world's leading experts on MIMO receivers, and here they share the key findings of their research over years. They detail a range of key techniques for receiver design as multiple transmitted and received signals are available. The authors first introduce the principle of signal detection and the LR in mathematical aspects. They then move on to discuss the use of LR in low complexity MIMO receiver design with respect to different aspects, including uncoded MIMO detection...

  14. The dynamic behaviors of complementary correlations under decoherence channels

    2017-01-01

    Complementary correlations can reveal the genuine quantum correlations present in a composite quantum system. Here, we explore an effective method to identify the entangled Bell diagonal states by means of Pearson correlation, one of the complementary correlations. Then, we extend this method to expose the dynamic behavior of complementary correlations under various kinds of decoherence channels. The sudden death and revival of entanglement can be explained by the idea of Pearson correlation. The threshold that is used to identify entanglement is proposed. Furthermore, we put forward a new method to expound the underlying physical mechanisms for which classical and quantum correlations suffer a sudden change in the decoherence process.

    Measuring transmission between four antennas in microwave cavities, we investigate directly the channel cross correlations C of the cross sections σa b from antenna at r⃗a to antenna r⃗b. Specifically we look for the CΣ and CΛ, where the only difference is that CΛ has none of the four channels in common, whereas CΣ has exactly one channel in common. We find experimentally that these two channel cross correlations are antiphased as a function of the channel coupling strength, as predicted by theory. This anticorrelation is essential to obtain the correct values for the universal conductance fluctuations. To obtain good agreement between experiment and predictions from random matrix theory the effect of absorption has to be included.

A 77 052324), where memory effects come from the interaction with correlated environments. Environmental correlations are quantified by a multimode squeezing parameter, which vanishes in the memoryless limit. We show that a global encoding/decoding scheme, which involves input-entangled states among different channel uses, is always preferable with respect to a local one in the presence of memory. Moreover, in a certain range of the parameters, we provide an analytical expression for the classical capacity of the channel showing that a global encoding/decoding scheme allows it to be attained. All the results can be applied to a broad class of bosonic Gaussian channels.

    2012-01-01

    In this study, the authors derive the effective capacity limits for multiple antenna channels which quantify the maximum achievable rate with consideration of link-layer delay-bound violation probability. Both correlated multiple-input single-output and multiple-input multiple-output keyhole channels are studied. Based on the closed-form exact expressions for the effective capacity of both channels, the authors look into the asymptotic high and low signal-to-noise ratio regimes, and derive simple expressions to gain more insights. The impact of spatial correlation on effective capacity is also characterised with the aid of a majorisation theory result. It is revealed that antenna correlation reduces the effective capacity of the channels and a stringent quality-of-service requirement causes a severe reduction in the effective capacity but can be alleviated by increasing the number of antennas. © 2012 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.

    Full Text Available Motivated by the study of the optimization of the quality of service for multiple input multiple output (MIMO systems in 3G (third generation, we develop a method for modeling MIMO channel . This method, which uses a statistical approach, is based on a variational form of the usual channel equation. The proposed equation is given by with scalar variable . Minimum distance of received vectors is used as the random variable to model MIMO channel. This variable is of crucial importance for the performance of the transmission system as it captures the degree of interference between neighbors vectors. Then, we use this approach to compute numerically the total probability of errors with respect to signal-to-noise ratio (SNR and then predict the numbers of antennas. By fixing SNR variable to a specific value, we extract informations on the optimal numbers of MIMO antennas.

    We consider the downlink of a multi-cell system with multi-antenna base stations and single-antenna user terminals, arbitrary base station cooperation clusters, distance-dependent propagation pathloss, and general "fairness" requirements. We focus on the joint transmission from the base stations in a cooperation cluster based on linear zero-forcing beamforming, subject to sum or per-base station power constraints. Analytic expressions for the system spectral efficiency are found in the large-system limit where both the numbers of users and antennas per base station tend to infinity with a given ratio. In particular, for the per-base station constraint, we find new results in random matrix theory, yielding the squared Frobenius norm of submatrices of the Moore-Penrose pseudo-inverse for the structured non-i.i.d. channel matrix resulting from the cooperation cluster, user distribution, and path-loss coefficients. The analysis is extended to the case of non-ideal channel state information obtained through explic...

    This paper investigates transceiver design for dual-hop up-link multi-user Multiple-Input Multiple- Output (MIMO) system with Amplify-and-Forward (AF) relay to improve the performance of Bit Error Ratio (BER) under the imperfect Channel State Information (CSI). Since the antenna correlation at both ends of the channel and the channel estimation errors are taken into account, a robust transceiver design is proposed. The optimization issue is formed with Minimum Mean-Square Error (MMSE) rule firstly. Then the relaying matrix and the optimal source precoding matrix are optimized at the maximum power constraint of the transmitter and relay station subsequently. Finally, the equalizer is optimized by a gradient-based line search algorithm. Simulation results indicate that the proposed design approach achieves better robustness against antenna correlation and channel estimation errors than existing methods.%论文研究了存在信道估计误差及天线相关条件下,上行多用户MIMO中继系统的预编码问题,目标是提升系统的误比特率性能。针对基于放大转发中继技术的上行多用户 MIMO 中继系统,考虑源-中继和中继-目的端信道中存在的信道估计误差及天线相关,提出一种基于不完全信道状态信息(Channel State Information, CSI)的预编码设计方案。首先根据最小均方误差(Minimum Mean-Squared Error, MMSE)准则设计代价函数,以发射端和中继端最大功率为约束条件,通过理论推导求得中继端和发射端的线性预编码矩阵,最后采用迭代下降法得到接收端处理矩阵的闭式解。数值仿真结果表明,在存在信道估计误差和天线相关的条件下,与现有算法相比,所提算法能有效降低系统的误比特率。

    A power allocation scheme for multi-user multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems with channel state information (CSI) on transmitter and receiver is pressed. Multi-user power allocation can be decoupled into single user power allocation throughout null space mapping of multi-user channel and power allocation can be performed throughout spatial-spectral water-filling for per user. To deal with more users in system and fading correlation, scheduling is performed to maintain the gain of power allocation. The proposed scheme can substantially improve system's spectral efficiency with low omplexity. Simulation results validate the accuracy of theoretic analyses.

    The convenience of mobile communications and the increasing demand for higher data transmitting rate have motivated people to explore more efficient methods of signal transmission because of the limited spectral resource. Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) is a high spectral efficient method and the theoretical capacity of a MIMO channel increases linearly with the number of transmitting/receiving antennas under the ideal conditions. We can adopt MIMO technology in the new generation of mobile cellular communication systems, which is IP based and requires high data rate to support multimedia services. Although much progress has been made in MIMO area recently, there are some problems in its practical application, especially in cellular application. In this paper we will analyze the channel model, the capacity and the technology of MIMO, and then we will focus on the issues of MIMO application in mobile cellular system by the Monte Carlo simulation and give the available solution schemes for the issues.

    Full Text Available The fast fluctuation associated with maneuvering a target’s radar cross-section often affects the imaging performance stability of traditional monostatic Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR. To address this problem, in this study, we propose an imaging method based on the fusion of sub-images of frequencydiversity-distributed multiple Input-Multiple Output-Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (MIMO-ISAR. First, we establish the analytic expression of a two-dimensional ISAR sub-image acquired by different channels of distributed MIMO-ISAR. Then, we derive the distance and azimuth distortion factors of the image acquired by the different channels. By compensating for the distortion of the ISAR image, we ultimately realize distributed MIMO-ISAR fusion imaging. Simulations verify the validity of this imaging method using distributed MIMO-ISAR.

    In this letter, a low-feedback non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) scheme using massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission is proposed. In particular, the proposed scheme can decompose a massive-MIMO-NOMA system into multiple separated single-input single-output NOMA channels, and analytical results are developed to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme for two scenarios, with perfect user ordering and with one-bit feedback, respectively.

    The concept of deploying a large number of antennas at the base station, often called massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), has drawn considerable interest because of its potential ability to revolutionize current wireless communication systems. Most literature on massive MIMO systems assumes time division duplexing (TDD), although frequency division duplexing (FDD) dominates current cellular systems. Due to the large number of transmit antennas at the base station, currently standardized approaches would require a large percentage of the precious downlink and uplink resources in FDD massive MIMO be used for training signal transmissions and channel state information (CSI) feedback. To reduce the overhead of the downlink training phase, we propose practical open-loop and closed-loop training frameworks in this paper. We assume the base station and the user share a common set of training signals in advance. In open-loop training, the base station transmits training signals in a round-robin manner, and the user successively estimates the current channel using long-term channel statistics such as temporal and spatial correlations and previous channel estimates. In closed-loop training, the user feeds back the best training signal to be sent in the future based on channel prediction and the previously received training signals. With a small amount of feedback from the user to the base station, closed-loop training offers better performance in the data communication phase, especially when the signal-to-noise ratio is low, the number of transmit antennas is large, or prior channel estimates are not accurate at the beginning of the communication setup, all of which would be mostly beneficial for massive MIMO systems.

    Under the condition of unauthorized receivers and cognitive radios,the problem of detecting the number of transmit antennas in MIMO system with multi-path channel is to be solved.To achieve this goal,we analyze the invalidation of presenting model and transform the MIMO multi-path channel model into virtual channel matrix to create the model of detec-ting the number of transmit antennas in MIMO system with multi-path channel.Then,the result of least eigen-value of covari-ance in random matrix theory is applied to the proof,which shows that the least eigen-value of channel covariance whose ele-ment obeys the Rayleigh distribution,converges in distribution to the Tracy-Widom law TW2. The effect on detecting the num-ber of transmit antennas of this property is analyzed and an improved algorithm based on RMT,which could detect the number of transmit antennas in MIMO system with multi-path channel,is proposed.At last,the simulation shows that compared with the RMT algorithm the improved algorithm has better performance,in the condition of low SNR and small data size.%为了解决认知无线电或信号截获中多径信道下MIMO系统发送天线数估计问题,首先分析了现有模型在多径信道下失效的原因,将MIMO多径信道模型等效变换出一种虚拟信道矩阵,从而建立多径信道下MIMO系统发送天线数估计模型;然后,利用随机矩阵理论中协方差矩阵最小特征值分布的相关研究结果,证明了时不变瑞利信道的协方差矩阵最小特征值收敛于第二类Tracy-Widom分布,分析了该特点对发送天线数估计的影响,并提出一种改进的RMT估计算法来估计多径信道下MIMO系统发送天线数。最后对改进算法进行了仿真验证,结果表明在低信噪比和小数据条件下,改进算法的估计性能相比RMT算法有较大提升。

    In this paper, we studied the spatial variation of the correlated color temperature (CCT) of lightning channel. We also discussed the energy of lightning channels relating to the CCT . First we applied digital image processing techniques to lightning images. In order to reduce the chromatic aberration, we created the reduction technique algorithm of the chromatic aberration on digital still images. We applied the reduction technique of the chromatic aberration to digital still images, and then the obtained results was mapped to the xy-chromaticity diagram. The CCT of the lightning channel was decided on the xy-chromaticity diagram. From results, the spatial variation of the CCT of the lightning channel was confirmed. Then the energy associated with the the CCT was discussed.

    The transmission performance for a downlink mobile WiMAX system with multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) systems in a computer simulation and field experiment is described. In computer simulation, a MU-MIMO transmission system can be realized by using the block diagonalization (BD) algorithm, and each user can receive signals without any signal interference from other users. The bit error rate (BER) performance and channel capacity in accordance with modulation schemes and the number of streams were simulated in a spatially correlated multipath fading environment. Furthermore, we propose a method for evaluating the transmission performance for this downlink mobile WiMAX system in this environment by using the computer simulation. In the field experiment, the received power and downlink throughput in the UDP layer were measured on an experimental mobile WiMAX system developed in Azumino City in Japan. In comparison with the simulated and experimented results, the measured maximum throughput performance in the downlink had almost the same performance as the simulated throughput. It was confirmed that the experimental mobile WiMAX system for MU-MIMO transmission successfully increased the total channel capacity of the system.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available In this contribution we propose an analogue receiver that can perform turbo detection in MIMO systems. We present the case for a receiver that is built from nonlinear analogue devices, which perform detection in a "free-flow" network (no notion of iterations. This contribution can be viewed as an extension of analogue turbo decoder concepts to include MIMO detection. These first analogue implementations report reductions of few orders of magnitude in the number of required transistors and in consumed energy, and the same order of improvement in processing speed. It is anticipated that such analogue MIMO decoder could bring about the same advantages, when compared to traditional digital implementations.

Multiple antennas structures can be classified into single-input multiple-outputs (SIMO, multiple-inputs single output (MISO, and multiple-inputs multiple-outputs (MIMO systems. Assuming that the channel is unknown at receiver, capacity expressions are provided for each structure. Our results also show that increasing the number of transmitting and receiving antennas for a wireless MIMO channel does indeed improve the channel capacity that can be obtained.

  20. A Demosaicking Algorithm with Adaptive Inter-Channel Correlation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Joan Duran

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Most common cameras use a CCD sensor device measuring a single color per pixel. Demosaicking is the interpolation process by which one can infer a full color image from such a matrix of values, thus interpolating the two missing components per pixel. Most demosaicking methods take advantage of inter-channel correlation locally selecting the best interpolation direction. The obtained results look convincing except when local geometry cannot be inferred from neighboring pixels or channel correlation is low. In these cases, these algorithms create interpolation artifacts such as zipper effect or color aliasing. This paper discusses the implementation details of the algorithm proposed in [J. Duran, A. Buades, ``Self-Similarity and Spectral Correlation Adaptive Algorithm for Color Demosaicking'', IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, 23(9, pp. 4031--4040, 2014]. The proposed method involves nonlocal image self-similarity in order to reduce interpolation artifacts when local geometry is ambiguous. It further introduces a clear and intuitive manner of balancing how much channel-correlation must be taken advantage of.

  1. Channel allocation and rate adaptation for relayed transmission over correlated fading channels

    KAUST Repository

    Hwang, Kyusung

    2009-09-01

    We consider, in this paper, channel allocation and rate adaptation scheme for relayed transmission over correlated fading channels via cross-layer design. Specifically, jointly considering the data link layer buffer occupancy and channel quality at both the source and relay nodes, we develop an optimal channel allocation and rate adaptation policy for a dual-hop relayed transmission. As such the overall transmit power for the relayed system is minimized while a target packet dropping rate (PDR) due to buffer over flows is guaranteed. In order to find such an optimal policy, the channel allocation and rate adaptation transmission framework is formulated as a constraint Markov decision process (CMDP). The PDR performance of the optimal policy is compared with that of two conventional suboptimal schemes, namely the channel quality based and the buffer occupancy based channel allocation schemes. Numerical results show that for a given power budget, the optimal scheme requires significantly less power than the conventional schemes in order to maintain a target PDR. ©2009 IEEE.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ankita Shukla

    2011-09-01

    Full Text Available We consider multiplexing systems in correlated multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO fading channels with equal power allocated to each transmit antenna. Under several constraints, the number and subset of transmit antennas together with the transmit symbol constellations are determined assuming knowledge of the channel correlation matrices. The maximum outage data rate of the SCR receiver is seen to be close to the outage channel capacity. Identification of the channel matrix is of main concern in wireless multiple input multiple output (MIMO systems. To maximize the SNR, the best way to utilize a MIMO system is to communicate on the top singular vectors of the channel matrix. In this paper we addresses t several issues and the problem of channel tracking and equalization for multi-input multi-output (MIMO time-varying frequency-selective channels. These channels model the effects of inter-symbol interference (ISI, co-channel interference (CCI, and noise. Via singular value decomposition (SVD analysis, the precoder is used to be shown to outperform the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM precoder in bit-error-rate (BER, transmission rate, and receiver implementation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hu, Chia-Chang; Chou, Yu-Fei; Chen, Kui-He

    2013-09-01

    In the paper, combined optimization of the terminal precoders/equalizers and single-relay precoder is proposed for an amplify-and-forward (AF) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) two-way single-relay system with correlated channel uncertainties. Both terminal transceivers and relay precoding matrix are designed based on the minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion when terminals are unable to erase completely self-interference due to imperfect correlated channel state information (CSI). This robust joint optimization problem of beamforming and precoding matrices under power constraints belongs to neither concave nor convex so that a nonlinear matrix-form conjugate gradient (MCG) algorithm is applied to explore local optimal solutions. Simulation results show that the robust transceiver design is able to overcome effectively the loss of bit-error-rate (BER) due to inclusion of correlated channel uncertainties and residual self-interference.

MIMO-OFDM can very effectively be used to achieve higher data rate’s and higher reliability and this is going to be the Key for 4G Technology. MIMO -OFDM designed in this work consists of Input/Output Memory, 16 QAM Modulator, MIMO Encoder (Space Time Encoder, Wireless Channel Model, MIMO Decoder Space Time Decoder and 16 QAM Demodulator. This paper has resulted in the development of a hardware prototype of a MIMO Transmitter, Receiver and channel, which is implemented on a Spartan-3 FPGA board. As the number format adopted is floating point,there was a need to develop a separate function which will show the equivalent real numbers for the corresponding floating point number. This made the task of debugging a lot easier. Test benches for individual model were developed and tested it for its correct functionality. The functional simulation was carried out for the entire design. The entire design was mapped on to FPGA. The results were compared with the MATLAB results and were found to be the same.

    2008-01-01

    A scenario in which a single source communicates with a single destination via a distributed MIMO transceiver is considered. The source operates each of the transmit antennas via finite-capacity links, and likewise the destination is connected to the receiving antennas through capacity-constrained channels. Targeting a nomadic communication scenario, in which the distributed MIMO transceiver is designed to serve different standards or services, transmitters and receivers are assumed to be oblivious to the encoding functions shared by source and destination. Adopting a Gaussian symmetric interference network as the channel model (as for regularly placed transmitters and receivers), achievable rates are investigated and compared with an upper bound. It is concluded that in certain asymptotic and non-asymptotic regimes obliviousness of transmitters and receivers does not cause any loss of optimality.

    2005-12-01

    This paper describes the methodology and the results of performance investigations on a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transceiver scheme for frequency-selective radio channels. The method relies on offline simulations and employs real-time MIMO channel sounder measurement data to ensure a realistic channel modeling. Thus it can be classified in between the performance evaluation using some predefined channel models and the evaluation of a prototype hardware in field experiments. New aspects for the simulation setup are discussed, which are frequently ignored when using simpler model-based evaluations. Example simulations are provided for an iterative ("turbo") MIMO equalizer concept. The dependency of the achievable bit error rate performance on the propagation characteristics and on the variation in some system design parameters is shown, whereas the antenna constellation is of particular concern for MIMO systems. Although in many of the considered constellations turbo MIMO equalization appears feasible in real field scenarios, there exist cases with poor performance as well, indicating that in practical applications link adaptation of the transmitter and receiver processing to the environment is necessary.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available With the constraint of antenna space, spatial correlation and mutual coupling must be considered to accurately predict the system performance for massive MIMO systems. Increasing the antenna quantity can degrade the system performance due to mutual coupling. Antenna selection systems have better performance and lower hardware cost than full-MIMO systems. However, the conventional selection combining (SC scheme consumes a great amount of training overhead and has high operational complexity in the presence of mutual coupling. This paper proposes a group switch-and-examine combining (GSEC scheme for massive MIMO systems with the spatial correlation and mutual coupling existing at both the transmitter and receiver. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed GSEC scheme provides better effective capacity performance and lower operational complexity than the conventional selection combining (SC and full-MIMO scheme.

For the reverse links of MIM0-RF1D system, monostatic or bistatic, are both the cascade of two multipath channels. In the paper, the analytical expressions of average reverse identi-fication range (RIR) of single-antenna (SISO) and MIMO-RFID systems with maximal ratio combing (MRC) were de-rived. And several influencing factors of RIR were researched through numerical simulation and measurements. The ex-perimental results showed that MIMO technique can evidently increase the RIR of UHF RFID systems, and the more an-tennas, the lower the correlation coefficient of channels, and the larger fading parameters, the higher the RIR.

    Full Text Available This research proposes a novel signal scheme called Hybrid spread MIMO-OFDM system which interface OFDM with CDMA and integrate this CDMA-OFDM to MIMO to generate a system functionally superior to MIMO-OFDM systems are considered as candidates for future broadband wireless service. OFDM may be combined with antenna arrays at the transmitter and receiver to increase the diversity gain and/or to enhance the system capacity on time-variant and frequency-selective channels, resulting in a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO configuration. The multiplexing technique proposed here is the Code Division Multiple Accesses (CDMA scheme which is considered the solution for eliminating the distortion caused by fast fading and provides the inherent advantage of DS-CDMA systems incorporating a spreading signal based on PN code sequence, by providing user discrimination based on coding at the same carrier frequency and simultaneously. The OFDM component provides resistance to multipath effects making it unnecessary to use RAKE receivers for CDMA and thus avoid hardware complexity. In order to compare their performances, the effects of multipath signal propagation on the capacity, under both single and multi user channel, are examined. The Inter Symbol Interference (ISI is used as a suitable measure of multipath effect. The obtained results show that the multipath has more influence on the capacity of MIMO than MIMO-OFDM and spread MIMO-OFDM. In addition, spread MIMO-OFDM offers more average capacity than MIMO under both single and multi user channel. In comparison with MIMO-OFDM, the capacity of spread MIMO-OFDM is higher under the condition of the multi user channel scenario. MIMO-OFDM spread system is being implemented using AWG and VSA. Thus making it possible to implement 4G using hardware and MATLAB/SIMULINK.

    Full Text Available During the March 2011 meeting of the CTIA MIMO OTA Subgroup (MOSG, the members agreed that the subgroup should first determine “what” aspects of a MIMO-capable device require evaluation; then the group should determine “how” to go about making these measurements. In subsequent meetings of MOSG, new yet-unnamed figures of merit were asked for in order to provide a solution to the carriers' requirements for LTE MIMO OTA evaluation. Furthermore, the December 2011 3GPP RAN4 status report on LTE MIMO OTA listed the evaluation of the use of statistical performance analysis in order to minimize test time and help ensure accurate performance assessment as an open issue. This contribution addresses these petitions by providing four new figures of merit, which could serve the purpose of evaluating the operators' top priorities for MIMO OTA compliance testing. The new figures of merit are MIMO Throughput Effectiveness (MTE, MIMO Device Throughput Effectiveness (MDTE, MIMO Throughput Gain (MTG, and MIMO Device Throughput Gain (MDTG. In this paper, MTE is evaluated using the recently available LTE MIMO OTA RR data from 3GPP.

    Full Text Available Interference is the factor which limits the performance in cellular network. Empowered by precoding and decoding, a spatially multiplexed Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO system becomes a convenient framework to offer high data rate, diversity and interference management. In this paper, we discuss precoding scheme to mitigate the effect of channel fading in MIMO system where there is no limit in number of antennas at transmitter and receiver. With the knowledge of channel state information (CSI the transmitted signal is defined such that the channel fading effect is greatly mitigated. This will improve the BER performance of the MIMO system. For our proposed scheme, we use the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD based approach to design the transmitted signal such that it mitigate the effect of channel fading. After simulation, we observe that the BER performance of MIMO system is better than when equalization technique used alone.
