Recommended by Kostas Berberidis Multicarrier modulation is a powerful transmission technique that provides improved performance in various communication fields. A fundamental topic of multicarrier communication systems is the bit and power loading, which is addressed in this article as a constrained multivariable nonlinear optimization problem. In(More)
— Multilevel-cell (MLC) storage is a typical way for achieving increased capacity and thus lower cost-per-bit in memory technologies. In phase-change memory (PCM), however, MLC storage is seriously hampered by the phenomenon of resistance drift. Reference cells may be used to offer some relief, however their effectiveness is limited due to the stochastic(More)
— Phase-change memory (PCM) has emerged as one among the most promising technologies for next-generation non-volatile solid-state memory. Multilevel storage, namely storage of non-binary information in a memory cell, is a key factor for reducing the total cost-per-bit and thus increasing the competitiveness of PCM technology in the nonvolatile memory(More)
—This letter presents a new bit-loading algorithm for discrete multitone systems that converges faster to the same bit allocation as the optimal discrete bit-filling and bit-removal methods. The algorithm exploits the differences between the subchannel gain-to-noise ratios in order to determine an initial bit allocation and then performs a multiple-bits(More)
NAND Flash memory is not only the ubiquitous storage medium in consumer applications, but has also started to appear in enterprise storage systems as well. MLC and TLC Flash technology made it possible to store multiple bits in the same silicon area as SLC, thus reducing the cost per amount of data stored. However, at current sub-20nm technology nodes, MLC(More)
— This paper addresses the problem of efficient resource allocation for multiuser orthogonal frequency division multiplexing over frequency selective channels. For wideband applications, such as power line communications and wireless networks, the development of low-complexity and fast execution time algorithms is important due to the time-varying behavior(More)
