In this paper, we analyze the performance of spectrum sensing based on energy detection. We do not assume the exact noise variance is known a priori. Instead, an estimated noise variance is used to calculate the threshold used in the spectrum sensing based on energy detection. We propose a new analytical model to evaluate the statistical performance of the(More)
Cognitive radios (CR) are proposed to alleviate the spectrum scarcity problems facing wireless service providers. In US, the FCC is considering spectrum regulation changes by allowing unlicensed operation in the TV broadcast bands provided that no harmful interference is caused. In this paper, we discuss the spectrum sensing aspects of cognitive radios. We(More)
This paper examines the performance of cooperative spectrum sensing, using energy detection, in Suzuki fading channels. Sub-optimal centralized detection approaches are examined where decisions are made based on identical tests performed at the individual radios. Decisions are performed at a fusion center using a counting rule that encompasses the OR, AND,(More)
In this paper, we present the architecture and implementation of an all-digital transmitter with radio frequency output targeting an FPGA device. FPGA devices have been widely adopted in the applications of digital signal processing (DSP) and digital communication. They are typically well suited for the evolving technology of software defined radios (SDR)(More)
Cartan's method is used to prove a several variable, non-Archime-dean, Nevanlinna Second Main Theorem for hyperplanes in projective space. The corresponding defect relation is derived, but unlike in the complex case, we show that there can only be finitely many non-zero non-Archimedean defects. We then address the non-Archimedean Nevanlinna inverse problem,(More)
