This paper proposes a relay-assisted spacefrequency block code (SFBC) for single carrier frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE) in a distributed fashion. The proposed scheme achieves spatial diversity over uplink fast fading channels without the complexity of multiple antennas. The source (mobile equipment) of the proposed system has a very simple(More)
Multi-input multi-output orthogonal frequencydivision 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 peakto-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 fading(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)
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 cyclic(More)
This paper proposes spectral efficient relayassisted transmit diversity techniques, i.e., space-time and space-frequency block codes (STBC/SFBC), for single carrier frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE). The proposed systems achieve spatial diversity over frequency selective channels in a distributed fashion without cyclic prefix (CP), which increases(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)
Cyclic delay diversity (CDD) is an attractive diversity technique due to its low complexity and compatibility to existing wireless communication systems. This letter proposes a CDD with frequency domain turbo equalization (FDTE) for single carrier (SC) transmission, in order to achieve the full spatial diversity of frequency-selective multi-antenna(More)
