ABSTRACT A novel method of multipath diversity signal combination is
proposed for mobile direct sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS)
communications. Multiple transmissions are made for each spread signal.
Each transmission is independently delayed and amplified in the complex
domain according to the delay profile and the estimated path strength of
the channel. This is done to facilitate reception of a signal at the
mobile unit which is already a RAKE combination of the multipath
signals. This method is called a pre-RAKE combination system because the
RAKE combination function is performed pre-transmission. Using this
method the size and complexity of the mobile unit can be kept to a
minimum. The pre-RAKE method retains the advantages of diversity
reception in a multi-path fading environment. An examination of the SNR
for the traditional RAKE and the pre-RAKE systems and computer
simulations show that the performance of the pre-RAKE system is
equivalent to that of the RAKE system

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates multiple input multiple output (MIMO) transmission techniques based on realistic assumptions on feedback of channel state information. We consider three conventional techniques as the baseline: 3GPP long-term evolution (LTE) single user MIMO (SU-MIMO) based on implicit channel feedback, zero-forcing multiuser MIMO (ZF MU-MIMO) based on explicit channel feedback, and ZF MU-MIMO based on implicit channel feedback. SU-MIMO may not be able to exploit the full spatial dimension of the downlink MIMO channel. ZF MU-MIMO has the potential to improve the spectral efficiency, but the explicit channel feedback is not compatible with implicit feedback whereas implicit based ZF MU-MIMO is limited by performance and also the commonly assumed rank restriction makes it impossible to perform dynamic switching of SU/MU MIMO transmission. We propose a new hybrid scheme which enables such dynamic switching of SU/MU MIMO transmission by allowing UE to feed back the implicit channel information without any rank restriction. Computer simulation results show the benefits of the new hybrid scheme, which can properly switch to the better transmission mode in various correlation scenarios.

    ABSTRACT: Linear precoding is a relatively simple method of MIMO signaling that can also be optimal in certain special cases. This paper is dedicated to high-SNR analysis of MIMO linear precoding. The Diversity-Multiplexing Tradeoff (DMT) of a number of linear precoders is analyzed. Furthermore, since the diversity at finite rate (also known as the fixed-rate regime, corresponding to multiplexing gain of zero) does not always follow from the DMT, linear precoders are also analyzed for their diversity at fixed rates. In several cases, the diversity at multiplexing gain of zero is found not to be unique, but rather to depend on spectral efficiency. The analysis includes the zero-forcing (ZF), regularized ZF, matched filtering and Wiener filtering precoders. We calculate the DMT of ZF precoding under two common design approaches, namely maximizing the throughput and minimizing the transmit power. It is shown that regularized ZF (RZF) or Matched filter (MF) suffer from error floors for all positive multiplexing gains. However, in the fixed rate regime, RZF and MF precoding achieve full diversity up to a certain spectral efficiency and zero diversity at rates above it. When the regularization parameter in the RZF is optimized in the MMSE sense, the structure is known as the Wiener precoder which in the fixed-rate regime is shown to have diversity that depends not only on the number of antennas, but also on the spectral efficiency. The diversity in the presence of both precoding and equalization is also analyzed.

    ABSTRACT: In impulse-radio or DS/SS UWB communications, a prerake scheme has been proposed to achieve path diversity while reducing computational complexity in a mobile terminal. On the other hand, in an OFDM system, fractional sampling (FS) has been proposed to achieve path diversity with a single antenna. However, in the FS-OFDM system, it is necessary to oversample a received signal that leads to larger power consumption in the terminal side. In this paper, a precoded transmit path diversity scheme in an OFDM system has been proposed. The proposed scheme can achieve path diversity without oversampling the received signal.
