This letter considers selection of the optimal peak reduction tone (PRT) set for the tone reservation (TR) scheme to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal. In the TR scheme, PAPR reduction performance achieved by a randomly generated PRT set is superior to that by a consecutive PRT set(More)
Channel estimation in multipath environments is typically performed using the pilot-symbol-assisted modulation (PSAM) scheme. However, the traditional PSAM scheme requires the use of dedicated pilot subcarriers and therefore leads to a reduction in the bandwidth utilization. Accordingly, this paper investigates a channel-estimation approach for orthogonal(More)
In this paper, we propose a real-time subcarrier, bit, and power allocation algorithm for OFDM-based multiuser communication systems in downlink transmission. Assuming that base stations know the channel gains of all subcarriers of all users, the proposed loading algorithm tries to minimize the required transmit power while satisfying the rate requirement(More)
In this paper, the multiply-detected macrodiversity (MDM) scheme is proposed for wireless cellular systems. As opposed to the traditional macrodiversity schemes, in which at any time a signal from only one base station is selected, in the MDM scheme there is no selection, but all the received signals are detected, and a maximum-likelihood decision algorithm(More)
This paper presents an architecture as well as circuit implementation of a ZigBee modulator/demodulator in the transceiver for personal area network, which is compliant with the physical layer of IEEE standard 802.15.4. A test prototype has been designed and fabricated using 0.18m single-poly six-metal CMOS process with core area of 0.16 mm . The(More)
