—Multi-input multi-output orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) has become a promising candidate for next generation broadband wireless communications. However, like a single-input single-output (SISO)-OFDM, one main disadvantage of the MIMO-OFDM is the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR), which can be reduced by using an amplitude(More)
—Space-time block coded (STBC) single carrier (SC) transmission was extended in a distributed fashion for practical implementation of user cooperation. However, STBC was designed under the assumption that the channel is static over the duration of a space-time codeword. Thus, the distributed STBC SC system suffers from the time selectivity of wireless(More)
—This paper proposes a full-rate cooperative communication technique with spatial diversity for single-carrier transmissions. In order to achieve both the spatial diversity and the full-rate, data streams are simultaneously transmitted through all direct and relay channels with different phase rotation and cyclic delay patterns. The phase rotation and(More)
Peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) regrowth after clipping is one disadvantage of space-frequency block coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (SFBC-OFDM). In this letter, we propose an effective PAPR reduction technique of SFBC-OFDM for multinode cooperative transmission. To reduce PAPR at the source (mobile equipment), the relay applies SFBC(More)
As with orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), one main disadvantage of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) OFDM is the prohibitively large peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of transmitted signals on different antennas, which can be reduced by a deliberate amplitude clipping. However, clipping causes distortion that degrades the system performance.(More)
