ABSTRACT We consider an iterative receiver composed of a maximum a posteriori (MAP) equalizer and a MAP decoder. During the iterations, the equalizer and the decoder exchange extrinsic information and use them as a priori in order to improve their performance. We propose here to study analytically the impact of the a priori information provided by the channel decoder on the equalizer performance. We show that it is equivalent to a gain in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and we provide an analytical expression. Simulation results show that this expression approximates quite well the SNR gain.

    • "At high SNR, the term corresponding to the upper bound will dominate the sum of the probabilities of the error events (because of the exponential decrease of the Q (.) function). Thus the overall probability of error can be approximated by [4]: "

    ABSTRACT: To combat the effects of intersymbol interference, the optimal equalizer to be used is based on maximum a posteriori (MAP) detection. We consider the case where the MAP equalizer is provided with a priori information on the transmitted data, as in a turbo equalizer. We propose to study analytically the impact of the a priori on the MAP equalizer performance. We distinguish two cases: the case of unreliable a priori and the case of reliable a priori. We show that when the a priori is reliable, it is better to perform the detection of the transmitted symbols based on the a posteriori outputs of the MAP equalizer rather than on the a priori only. In a turbo equalizer, the equalizer and the decoder exchange extrinsic log likelihood ratios (LLRs). We propose here to study analytically their distribution. The aim of this study is to perform in the future the analytical convergence analysis of turbo equalizers using the MAP equalization.

    • "Moreover, we have m ≥ 2. Thus, a lower bound for˜E m = ε m 2 + 4mµ 2 is given by bound(µ 2 ) = d 2 min + 8µ 2 . (26) In [5] "

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider an iterative receiver composed of a maximum a posteriori (MAP) equalizer and a MAP decoder. During the iterations, the equalizer and the decoder exchange extrinsic information and use them as a priori in order to improve their performance. We consider here an iterative receiver including a channel estimator. We propose to study analytically the impact of both the a priori information and the channel estimation errors on the equalizer performance. We show that it is equivalent to a shift in terms of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and we provide an analytical expression. Simulation results show that the analytical expression we give approximate quite well the equalizer performance.

    • "Nous distinguons deux cas d'´ etude : le cas o` u les informations a priori sont fiables et le cas o` u elles ne sont pas fiables. Cetté etude est une généralisation des résultats de [4], qui sont valables uniquement quand les a priori ne sont pas fiables. Dans un turbó egaliseur, l'´ egaliseur et le décodeur s'´ echangent des Logarithmes du Rapport de Vraisemblance (LRV) extrinsèques pour améliorer les performances au fil des itérations [2]. "
