ABSTRACT In this correspondence, we propose an analog network coding scheme with differential modulation (ANC-DM) using amplify-and-forward protocol for bidirectional relay networks when neither the source nodes nor the relay knows the channel state information (CSI). The performance of the proposed ANC-DM scheme is analyzed and a simple asymptotic bit error rate (BER) expression is derived. The analytical results are verified through simulations. It is shown that the BER performance of the proposed differential scheme is about 3 dB away from that of the coherent detection scheme. To improve the system performance, the optimum power allocation between the sources and the relay is determined based on the simplified BER. Simulation results indicate that the proposed differential scheme with optimum power allocation yields 1-2 dB performance improvement over an equal power allocation scheme.

    ABSTRACT: A signal detection scheme was proposed for two-way relaying networks (TWRNs) using distributed differential space-time coding (DDSTC) under imperfect synchronization. Unlike most existing work perfect with synchronization assumed, a relative delay between the signals transmitted from both sources to the relay was considered. Since perfect channel state information (CSI) is difficult to be acquired in fast fading, the scenarios and computation complexity will be increased especially when there appear multiple relays, CSI is assumed unavailable at all nodes. Therefore, the article proposes a differential signal detection scheme based on estimating and cancelling the imperfect synchronization component in the received signal at the two source nodes, followed by a least square (LS) decoder. Simulations, using the Nakagami-m fading channel due to its versatile statistical distribution property, show that the proposed scheme for both source nodes are effective in suppressing the inter-symbol interference (ISI) caused by imperfect synchronization while neither the source nodes nor the relay nodes have any knowledge of CSI.

    ABSTRACT: The orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is currently used in long term evolution (LTE) system. The time offset estimation (TOE) and frequency offset estimation (FOE) of OFDM is essential in mobile communication base. According to the conventional cross correlation TOE and FOE algorithms, a new cross correlation computation was proposed to estimate the time offset and frequency offset for LTE uplink system, so that the time offset and frequency offset can be estimated simultaneously with low complexity. Compared with the conventional TOE and FOE algorithms, the simulation show that the proposed can reduce complexity and improve performance for FOE with good performance for TOE in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and multipath channel.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we consider an amplify-and-forward two-way relay system with unknown carrier frequency offsets (CFOs) which change randomly. Due to the existence of CFOs, the conventional differential scheme fails. In this case, a double differential transmission scheme is proposed to achieve successful two-way relay transmission over Nakagami-m fading channels. The average symbol error rate (SER) performance of the proposed scheme is analyzed and a closed-form approximation is derived. Simulation results are provided to validate the proposed scheme.
