ABSTRACT Previous work on I/Q imbalance in SC-FDE transceivers investigates the effect of receiver I/Q imbalance but does not consider Doppler effects due to mobility. SCFDE in doubly-selective channels is studied without considering I/Q imbalance. In this paper, we derive an equivalent channel model for SC-FDE in the presence of both joint Tx/Rx I/Q imbalance and mobility and present an effective low-complexity digital baseband compensation scheme. Furthermore, we propose a novel joint channel and I/Q imbalance parameter estimation scheme for SC-FDE transceivers.

    ABSTRACT: To better answer the user needs, new air interfaces are currently being selected for the emerging wireless communication systems. OFDM and SC-FDE are two interesting alternatives that support both the low complexity equalization of the multi-path channels. Even if the two systems benefit approximately from the same performance, they behave significantly differently in the presence of synchronization errors and front-end non-idealities. The goal of this paper is to assess the impact of CFO, SCO and IQ imbalance on the performance of the OFDM and SC-FDE systems.

    ABSTRACT: Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) has been recently adopted by major manufacturers and by standardization bodies for a wide range of wireless and wireline applications ranging from digital video/audio broadcast-ing to power-line communications. The major virtues of OFDM are 1) its resilience to multipath propagation providing a viable low-complexity and optimal (in the maximum likelihood sense) solution for intersymbol interference (ISI) miti-gation, 2) the possibility of achieving channel capacity if the transmitted signal is adapted to the state of the communication channel (i.e., if energy and bit-loading procedures are adopt-ed), and 3) the availability of strategies for frequency diversity scheduling in multiuser com-munication systems. Although OFDM has become the physical layer of choice for broadband communications standards, it suffers from several drawbacks including a large peak-to-aver-age power ratio (PAPR), intolerance to amplifier nonlinearities, and high sensitivity to carrier frequency offsets (CFOs) [6]. An alternative promising approach to ISI mitigation is the use of
