ABSTRACT In this paper we consider and compare several strategies that can be employed to constrain the transmit power at base station (BS) and compare the performance of the different space-frequency pre-filtering techniques that have been proposed recently for DL MC-CDMA systems. We consider the use of antenna arrays at the base station and a single antenna at the mobile terminal (MT). These schemes format the transmitted signals to eliminate the effects of multiple access interference (MAI) and channel distortions at the mobile terminals, while maintaining low MT complexity. The performance of the different pre-filtering schemes is evaluated, considering both uncoded data and channel turbo coding based on UMTS specifications

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes two space-frequency schemes with a multi-user pre-filtering technique for downlink (DL) multicarrier code division multiple access (MC-CDMA) systems. We consider the use of antenna arrays at the base station (BS) and a single antenna at the mobile terminal (MT) and derive the proposed multi-user pre-filtering technique that modulates the transmitted signal to eliminate the effects of multiple access interference (MAI) and channel distortions at the mobile terminals, while maintaining low MT complexity. Two types of detectors are considered at the MT: simple despreading and single user equalizers. The performances of the proposed schemes are compared to those of other transmit signal design approaches that have been recently proposed for DL MC-CDMA, considering both typical indoor and pedestrian scenarios, and channel coding based on UMTS specifications.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we compare the performance of the joint space-frequency single and multi-user pre-filtering techniques that have been proposed recently for DL MC-CDMA systems. We consider the use of antenna arrays at the base station and a single antenna at the mobile terminal (MT). We investigate how the chip mapping strategy impacts on the performance of the pre-filtering approaches. Thus, practical combinations of pre- filtering and chip mapping are discussed. The performance is evaluated for different chip mapping strategies, considering typical indoor and pedestrian scenarios and both uncoded data and channel turbo coding based on UMTS specifications.

    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with downlink space-frequency block coding (SFBC) with a multi-user pre-filtering technique for MIMO MC-CDMA systems. We consider the use of an antenna array at both the base station (BS) and the user terminal (UT). The space-frequency block codes allow that the spatial diversity be efficiently exploited and the linear multi-user frequency pre-filtering technique modulates the transmitted signal to eliminate the effects of multiple access interference (MAI) and channel distortions at the user terminals. The aim of this technique is to transfer the most computational complexity from UT to the BS, keeping the first one at very low complexity. The performance of the proposed scheme is evaluated, considering typical pedestrian scenario and both uncoded data and channel turbo coding based on UMTS specifications.
