In this paper, the relationship between time and frequency domain joint channel estimation (JCE) in multi-branch, i.e., multi-user and/or multiple antenna, systems is explained. It is proved that the design criterion of optimum pilots for frequency domain JCE can be deduced from the design criterion of optimum pilots for time domain JCE, and vice versa.(More)
In this letter, the design of pilots aiming at mitigating the inter-cell interference in MIMO OFDM systems is addressed. It is shown that if an ideal channel between interferer and receiver is assumed, pilots resulting in a variation coefficient of zero, and therefore best performance on system level, can be designed. The properties of these pilots are(More)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems encounter performance degradations due to the time varying (TV) channels in wireless environments. As delay spread increases, symbol duration should also increase, and then OFDM systems become more susceptible to time-variations. Time-variations introduce inter-carrier interference (ICI), which must(More)
This paper presents an innovative interface design and its field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementation for transparent transmission between medium access control (MAC) layer and physical (PHY) layer. In the interface design, we introduce a mechanism of central process unit (CPU) and FPGA co-processing data so as to obtain good performance compared(More)
In spectrum sharing systems, a secondary user (SU) is permitted to share frequency bands with primary user (PU) as long as its transmission does not interfere with the PU’s communication. In this paper, the outage probability is investigated for the physical-layer network coding (PNC) based cognitive two-way relay network over Nakagami-m fading channel. By(More)
