When a preamble signal is repeated multiple times in OFDM systems, we derive joint maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of the frame timing (FT) and carrier frequency offset (CFO). Unlike conventional estimators which use correlation of adjacent repetition patterns only or some specific sets of patterns, the joint ML estimation exploits correlation of any(More)
This letter analyzes the effect of the carrier frequency offset on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems for multipath fading channels. A simple approximate expression for the average signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is derived. This approximate expression is shown to be an upper bound of the average SNR for flat fading channels and an exact(More)
This paper presents an exact analysis of the effect of the carrier frequency offset on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems for a general multipath fading channel. As is well known, the carrier frequency offset attenuates the desired signal and causes inter-carrier interference, thus reducing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The SNR(More)
This paper proposes and analyzes receiver schemes for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with hybrid automatic-repeat-request (HARQ). It is shown by means of analysis as well as computer simulations that the proposed receiver schemes have optimal decoding performance in the sense that all the relevant information is fully used.

Bandwidth efficient modulation schemes using Reed-Solomon (RS) codes are proposed for Hybrid In-Band-On-Channel (IBOC) systems that broadcast digital audio signals simultaneously with analog Amplitude Modulation (AM) programs in the AM band. Since both the power and bandwidth allocated for digital audio transmission are limited in this application, the(More)
This paper analyzes the effect of phase noise on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with a focus on time-direction (TD) differential receivers. Both Wiener phase noise and wide-sense stationary (WSS) phase noise are considered. A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) expression for TD differential receivers is derived in the presence of phase(More)
