This letter proposes a novel method for channel estimation in a single-carrier multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) system with frequency-domain equalization/detection. To this end, we construct novel short MIMO training sequences that have constant envelope in the time domain to preclude the peak-to-average power ratio problem encountered in many systems(More)
We investigate a new class of training sequences that are optimal for least squares (LS) channel estimation in systems employing transmit diversity and single-carrier (SC) modulation with a cyclic prefix (CP) extension. The sequences have a constant envelope in the time domain and are orthogonal in the frequency domain. Transmission of these sequences(More)
This paper discusses some of the challenges and opportunities of communications research in the area of smart grids and smart metering. It is clear that the communications research community has been actively seeking the 'next big thing' after interests in recent hot topics such as cognitive radio, cooperative communications, and MIMO have more or less(More)
In order to evaluate the performance of third-generation mobile communication systems, radio channel models are required. The models should be capable of handling nonstationary scenarios with dynamic evolution of multipaths. In this context and due to the introduction of advanced antenna systems to exploit the spatial domain, a further expansion is needed(More)
Single-carrier (SC) wireless communication systems generally require knowledge of the channel and the variance of the additive noise process to equalize a received message. Obtaining this information can be straightforward in stationary environments; however, these parameters constantly change in mobile environments. In this paper, we propose novel(More)

Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes have been adopted in a number of wired and wireless communication standards due to their improved error correcting ability and relatively simple decoder structure. However, for very high throughput systems operating in the multi-Gb/s range conventional decoding methods based on message passing are limited, due largely(More)
Channel estimation and tracking pose real problems in wideband single-carrier wireless communication systems employing multiple transmit and receive antennas. An alternative to estimating the channel is to adaptively equalize the received symbols. In this paper, we present an adaptive equalization algorithm for implementation in multiple-input(More)
