Generalized random spreading performance analysis of CDMA over GWSSUS fading channels

Ertuğ, Özgür
Since direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) is an interference-limited random multiple-access scheme, the reduction of co-channel interference with either interference suppression or interference cancellation multiuser receivers and/or power control to prevent detrimental near-far situations is vital for improved performance. Up to date, some contributions investigated randomly-spread asymptotically - large number of users and large bandwidth - large CDMA systems with multiuser receivers and power control via random matrix theoretic and free probability theoretic tools especially over Gaussian and single-path fading channels. As complement within this thesis, we analyze also within the generalized random spreading framework but at finite system sizes and without power control the capacity achievable with linear multichannel multiuser receivers; i.e. RAKE, zero-forcing decorrelator, linear minimum mean-squared error (LMMSE) multiuser receivers, within a single-cell setting over generalized time-varying GWSSUS - Rayleigh/Ricean - fading channels via random matrix theoretic tools. Assuming maximal-ratio combining (MRC) of resolved frequency - multipath - diversity channels due to wideband transmission, the signal-to-interference ratios (SIRs) with multichannel multiuser receivers that set the basis for further derivations are statistically characterized. The information-theoretic ergodic and outage sum-rates spectral efficiencies are then derived and analyzed.


Optimization of doppler processing by using bank of matched filters
Aktop, Onur; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In radars, matched filters are used in the receiver of the system. Since the target velocity is not known a priori, degradation occurs due to mismatch of the return signal and the matched filter. The performance of the radar can be improved by using a bank of matched filters. The first topic investigated in this work is optimization of the bank of matched filter structure. Two methods are proposed for the design of the parallel filter structure and computations are performed with both methods. The output si...
Multi-tone representation of arbitrary waveforms and application to the analysis of nonlinear amplifiers and feedforward linearizers
Mutlu, Ahmet; Demir, Şimşek; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Characterization of nonlinear systems is a challenging task as the output can not be expressed simply in terms of input signal. Therefore, a universal analysis method is essential to simplify this procedure. Modeling of the input signal is a crucial part of such analysis. In this thesis, multi-tone representation is employed to model arbitrary, stochastically not well-defined input signals and thereafter characterize nonlinear systems. In order to verify the validity of multitone representation, multi-tone ...
MMSE based iterative turbo equalization for antenna switching sytems
Yıldırım, Recep Ali; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, we study the performance of an antenna switching (AS) system in comparison to an Alamouti coded system. We analyze the outage probabilities and propose minimum mean-squared error based iterative equalizers for both systems. We see from the outage probability analysis of both systems that the AS system may achieve the same diversity order of the Alamouti coded scheme contingent on the transmission rate and constellation size. In the proposed receiver, MMSE equalization and channel decoding ar...
Interception techniques for direct sequence spread spectrum signals
Karadeniz, Uygar; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this work interception and spreading sequence estimation of Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) signals, in low signal to noise power ratios is discussed. For interception an approach based on autocorrelation fluctuations is employed and also symbol period is estimated from this interception process. Spreading sequence estimation is performed by using eigenanalysis of the correlation matrix and estimated symbol period. These approaches are applied on different kinds of DSSS signals including 3rd gener...
Implementation of stanag 428 hf modem software on tms320c54x digital signal processor
Örümlü, Erhan; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this research, STANAG 4285 HF modem software is implemented on TMS320C54x fixed point digital signal processor. The software is optimized in order to meet real-time operation requirements. A fractionally spaced least mean square (LMS) decision feedback equalizer (DFE) is employed for the receiver. In order to improve the convergence of the LMS algorithm a multipass technique is utilized. Based on Watterson̕s model, an HF channel simulator is employed for evaluating the performance of the modem. The simul...
