GRAND for Rayleigh Fading Channels

  title={GRAND for Rayleigh Fading Channels},
  author={Syed Mohsin Abbas and Marwan Jalaleddine and Warren J. Gross},
—Guessing Random Additive Noise Decoding (GRAND) is a code-agnostic decoding technique for short-length and high-rate channel codes. GRAND tries to guess the channel noise by generating test error patterns (TEPs), and the sequence of the TEPs is the main difference between different GRAND variants. In this work, we extend the application of GRAND to multipath frequency non-selective Rayleigh fading communication channels, and we refer to this GRAND variant as Fading-GRAND. The proposed Fading…

Symbol-Level GRAND for High-Order Modulation over Flat Fading Channels

Simulation results demonstrate that symbol- level GRAND produces estimates of the transmitted codewords notably faster than the original GRAND at the cost of a small increase in memory requirements.

Soft-input, soft-output joint detection and GRAND

This work demonstrates how GRAND can leverage crude soft information in received symbols and channel state information to generate, through guesswork, soft bit reliability outputs in log-likelihood ratios (LLRs).



High-Throughput VLSI Architecture for GRAND

The first hardware architecture for the GRAND algorithm is proposed and compared with a decoder tailored for a (79, 64) BCH code show that the proposed architecture can achieve a slightly higher average throughput at high SNRs, while obtaining the same decoding performance.

An approximate ML decoding scheme where the receiver abandons the search after a fixed number of queries is introduced, an approach that is also capacity-achieving for an appropriate choice of abandonment threshold, and its complexity, error, and success exponents are characterized.

It is shown that the proposed scheme provides the same BER provided by the maximal ratio combining (MRC) scheme for a dual diversity system, and is only 0.3 dB inferior to the MRC when the number of branches is four, in Rayleigh fading channels.

High-Throughput and Energy-Efficient VLSI Architecture for Ordered Reliability Bits GRAND

The first hardware architecture for ORBGRAND is reported, which achieves an average throughput of up to 42.5 Gb/s for a code length of 128 at a target frame error rate (FER) of 10 and can be used to decode any code as long as the length and rate constraints are met.

Keep the bursts and ditch the interleavers

It is established that certain well-known structured codes are ill-suited for use in bursty channels, but Random Linear Codes (RLCs) are robust to correlated noise, which suggests that the use of RLCs with GRAND-MO is a good candidate for applications requiring high throughput with low latency.
