—This paper considers MIMO transceivers with linear precoders and decision feedback equalizers (DFEs), with bit allocation at the transmitter. Zero-forcing (ZF) is assumed. Considered first is the minimization of transmitted power, for a given total bit rate and a specified set of error probabilities for the symbol streams. The precoder and DFE matrices are(More)
—Automatic white balance is an important function of digital still cameras. The goal of white balance is to adjust the image such that it looks as if it is taken under canonical light. We proposed a novel technique to detect reference white points in an image. Our algorithm uses dynamic threshold for white point detection and is more flexible than other(More)
—A general family of optimal transform coders (TCs) is introduced here based on the generalized triangular decomposition (GTD) developed by Jiang et al. This family includes the Karhunen–Loeve transform (KLT) and the generalized version of the prediction-based lower triangular transform (PLT) introduced by Phoong and Lin as special cases. The coding gain of(More)
— We consider new optimization problems for transceivers with DFE receivers and linear precoders, which also use bit loading at the transmitter. First, we consider the MIMO QoS (quality of service) problem, which is to minimize the total transmitted power when the bit rate and probability of error of each data stream are specified. The developments of this(More)
—This correspondence revisits the joint transceiver optimization problem for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels. The linear transceiver as well as the transceiver with linear precoding and decision feedback equalization are considered. For both types of transceivers, in addition to the usual total power constraint, an individual power constraint(More)
—The geometric mean decomposition (GMD) transform coder (TC) was recently introduced and was shown to achieve the optimal coding gain without bit loading under the high bit rate assumption. However, the performance of the GMD transform coder is degraded in the low rate case. There are mainly two reasons for this degradation. First, the high bit rate(More)
