This paper investigates the performance of the space-time-frequency coded (STFC) multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing ultra-wideband (MBOFDM UWB) system over wireless body area network (WBAN) channels, using the Alamouti code. Different MIMO configurations and different modulations are used for comparison. The effect of body directions is(More)
It is widely believed that the walsh code is the best to provide covering for a CDMA channel due to its orthogonality. However, it exhibits a severe aperiodic ACF and variation of its aperiodic ACF pattern for each code. Hence, the comparison of MAI performances of walsh sequences with other three orthogonal sequences as a channel cover code in DS-CDMA was(More)
This paper proposes a simple, but efficient, adaptive space-time-frequency coded (STFC) multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing ultra-wideband (MB-OFDM UWB) system to improve the average BER performance for body-to-external link wireless body area network (WBAN) applications. The novelty of this paper is the proposed body direction based(More)

A bit error rate (BER) estimation-based adaptive space-time-frequency coded (STFC) multiband orthogonal frequency division multiplexing ultra-wideband (MB-OFDM UWB) wireless body area network (WBAN) system is proposed in this paper. It is designed to improve the average BER performance for high data rate applications while maintaining a reasonably high(More)
