ABSTRACT Symbol mapping is very crucial for the performance of bit-interleaved coded modulation with iterative decoding (BICM-ID). In this paper, a new scheme of symbol mapping called Cross-8PSK-Quasi-Gray is proposed. The optimization scheme of Cross-8PSK is composed of two QPSK with different radius and phases. Through analysis and comparisons with three previously mentioned symbol mappings in terms of channel capacity and error performance, simulation results show that Cross-8PSK-Quasi-Gray mapping significantly outperforms set partitioning, semi set partitioning labeling maps in the aspects of both channel capacity and error performance. The overall performance of Cross-8PSK-Quasi-Gray mapping is nearly close to gray mapping in conventional 8PSK. Thus, Cross-8PSK-Quasi-Gray mapping is a good scheme for designing the power-efficient BICM.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose to study the effect of the choice of the mapping on the performance of iterative receivers for flat fading channels. We use at the transmitter a BICM (Bit Interleaved Coded Modulation) based scheme obtained by the concatenation of a binary code and a modulator separated by an interleaver. Because of the interleaving, the optimal receiver is too complex. In order to achieve a good complexity/performance trade-off, we propose to use an iterative receiver. The basic idea of the iterative processing is to exchange extrinsic information between the different stages of the receiver to successively improve the performance during the iterations. We consider the case of flat fading channels where a turbo-demodulator is used. An optimization of the mapping is required to obtain a gain by using the iterative receivers. In order to make the mapping choice easier, we propose to perform an analysis based on the Gaussian approximation. This analysis relies on only one simulation of the demodulator.

    ABSTRACT: We consider network coding for the time-division two-way relay channel (TWRC). Based on achievable rates, we study the optimal transmission time allocation for a three-phase transmission protocol. While existing network coding schemes for the TWRC perform "hard" network coding, we propose a novel soft-information-based joint network-channel coding scheme. A detailed description of the operation of each network node in our scheme is given. Moreover, we discuss optimal log-likelihood ratio quantization as well as the transmission of quantized soft information. Finally, we assess the performance of the proposed scheme using numerical simulations, including a comparison to conventional "hard" network coding and to direct transmission without relay.

    ABSTRACT: Classic Shannon theory suggests that the achievable channel capacity increases logarithmically with the transmit power. By contrast, the MIMO capacity increases linearly with the number of transmit antennas, provided that the number of receive antennas is equal to the number of transmit antennas. With the further proviso that the total transmit power is increased proportionately to the number of transmit antennas, a linear capacity increase is achieved upon increasing the transmit power, which justifies the spectacular success of MIMOs. Hence we may argue that MIMO-aided transceivers and their cooperation-assisted distributed or virtual MIMO counterparts constitute power-efficient solutions. In a nutshell, since the conception of GSM in excess of three orders of magnitude bit-rate improvements were achieved in three decades, which corresponds to about a factor ten for each decade, because GSM had a data rate of 9.6 Kb/s, while HSDPA is capable of communicating at 13.7 Mb/s. However, the possible transmit power reductions remained more limited, even when using the most advanced multistage iterative detectors, since the required received signal power has not been reduced by as much as 30 dB. This plausible observation motivates the further research of advanced cooperation-aided wireless MIMO transceivers, as detailed in this treatise.
