ABSTRACT This paper proposes a relay-based transmit diversity technique for single carrier frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE). The proposed system achieves spatial diversity over fading channels in a distribution fashion without cyclic prefix (CP), which increases spectral efficiency of conventional relay- based systems. The destruction of channel cyclicity due to the lack of CP is recovered at the input of relay and destination. In order to obtain spatial diversity, the transmit sequence of relay is efficiently generated in time domain, realizing space-frequency block code (SFBC). Corresponding destination structure using FDE, timing synchronization, and highly accurate channel estimation for the proposed system are also presented. Simulation results show that the proposed system approaches the lower bound of full-CP system.

    ABSTRACT: Cooperative diversity is an effective transmission technique allowing multiple users to create a virtual antenna array although each of them is equipped with single antenna. In this paper, an iterative channel estimation and equalization (ICEE) scheme for single-carrier systems is proposed, realizing space-frequency block code (SFBC) with amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying in a distributed fashion. Most existing researchers assume perfect channel information available at the receiver, however, the effect of imperfect channel estimation should be considered for practical applications. In the proposed algorithm, pilot-aided channel estimation (CE) and soft inter-symbol interference (ISI) cancelation with minimum mean squared error (MMSE) filtering are performed iteratively to suppress interferences. An implementation that accounts for imperfect channel estimation is also investigated. The bit error rate (BER) performances and extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) charts are presented for Rayleigh fading channels. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: This paper develops an amplify-and-forward relaying scheme for multiuser wireless cooperative networks under frequency-selective block-fading. Single-carrier frequency division multiple-access with frequency-domain equalization technique is employed at both the relay and destination to combat the inter-block and inter-symbol interference caused by multipath propagation. With the assumption that the full channel state information (CSI) is available at the destination, the relay only knows the uplink channels while no CSI is available at the sources, two power allocation schemes are developed for the relay: (i) to minimize the total transmit power at the relay while maintaining the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) for each user at the destination above a certain level, and (ii) to maximize the worst SINR among all the users subject to a constraint on total relay power. In the first problem, it is shown that SINR adaptation is needed not only to guarantee a feasible solution but also to significantly reduce the transmit power at the relay for certain channel conditions. In the second problem, a flexible multi-level water-filling scheme is developed, which can be easily modified to adapt to the different channel conditions as well as different quality-of-service provision strategies.
