— This paper introduces a super-orthogonal space-time block coding scheme. The code construction is based on the expansion of orthogonal block code via a unitary matrix transformation. By expanding the orthogonal block code, both the code rate can be increased and the performance improved in terms of E b /N 0 , with a moderate increase of the receiver(More)
A novel detector for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications is presented. The algorithm belongs to the class of the lattice detectors, i.e. it finds a reduced complexity solution to the problem of finding the closest vector to the received observations. The algorithm achieves optimal maximum-likelihood (ML) performance in case of two transmit(More)
Recently a soft-output multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) detector has been proposed, namely LORD (layered orthogonal lattice detector), able to achieve maximum-likelihood (ML) performance (in the max-log sense) for two transmit antennas, and near-optimal for greater than two, in MIMO-OFDM bit interleaved coded modulation (BICM) systems.

In this paper a VLSI architecture of a high throughput and high performance soft-output (SO) MIMO detector (the recently presented Layered ORthogonal Lattice Detector, LORD) is presented. The baseline implementation includes optimal (i.e. maximum-likelihood -- ML -- in the max-log sense) SO generation. A reduced complexity variant of the SO generation stage(More)
— This paper presents a low-complexity/low-latency algorithm for estimating and tracking time-varying fading channels in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems. More specifically, it is described a decision directed (DD) channel estimation (CE) method, consisting of two main steps: 1) Data detection of the current received OFDM symbol is(More)
