A Kalman-Filter Approach to Equalization of CDMA Downlink Channels

An efficient method for equalization of downlink CDMA channels is presented. By describing the observed signal in terms of a state-space model, the method employs the Kalman filter (KF) to achieve an unbiased signal estimate satisfying the linear minimum mean-squared error (LMMSE) criterion. The state-space model is realized at the symbol and chip levels… CONTINUE READING
