A Low-Complexity Graph-Based LMMSE Receiver for MIMO ISI Channels With M-QAM Modulation

In this paper, we propose a low complexity graph-based linear minimum mean-square-error (LMMSE) equalizer in order to remove inter-symbol and inter-stream interference in a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communication. The proposed state space representation inflicted on the graph provides linearly increasing computational complexity with block length. In addition, owing to the Gaussian assumption used in the presented cycle-free factor graph, the complexity of the suggested equalizer structure is not affected by the size of the signaling space. In addition, we introduce an efficient way of computing extrinsic bit log-likelihood ratio values for the LMMSE estimation compatible with higher order alphabets, which is shown to perform better than the other methods in the literature. Overall, we provide an efficient receiver structure reaching high data rates in frequency selective MIMO systems, whose performance is shown to be very close to a genie-aided matched filter bound through extensive simulations.


A Low-Complexity Graph-Based LMMSE Receiver Designed for Colored Noise Induced by FTN-Signaling
Sen, Pinar; Aktas, Tugcan; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2014-04-09)
We propose a low complexity graph-based linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) equalizer which considers both the intersymbol interference (ISI) and the effect of non-white noise inherent in Faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) signaling. In order to incorporate the statistics of noise signal into the factor graph over which the LMMSE algorithm is implemented, we suggest a method that models it as an autoregressive (AR) process. Furthermore, we develop a new mechanism for exchange of information between the proposed...
A Reduced-State Ungerboeck Type MAP Receiver with Bidirectional Decision Feedback for M-ary Quasi Orthogonal Signaling
Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Tanık, Yalçın; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2014-02-01)
In this paper, we propose a generic receiver based on optimum maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) employing a generalized Ungerboeck metric with significantly reduced complexity for the general class of M-ary quasi orthogonal signaling (MOS) in severe multipath fading channels. First, by using the factor graph (FG) of the obtained generalized Ungerboeck metric for MOS and sum-product algorithm (SPA) framework, a highly efficient reduced state sequence estimation (RSSE) algorithm is proposed that o...

In this paper, an alternative method is proposed instead of the ones using semi-definite programming (SDP) tools in precoder and decoder design to solve max-min fairness (MMF) problem in the multiuser downlink multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) communication systems for common and private information transmission. This is a Hybrid method which is the combination of the two solving total signal-interference plus noise ratio (SINR) maximization (Total-SINR Max) and total MMSE (Joint-TMSE) problems and it is very...
A CDMA system wideband feedforward linearizer design based on an analytical model
Coskun, AH; Demir, Şimşek (2003-01-01)
Feedforward systems are complicated due to the presence of two nonlinear amplifiers and the requirement of amplitude, delay and phase match in two different loops. Analytical tools that characterize this complexity help the designer a lot in rapid and accurate initial optimizations, particularly for wideband applications. In this work we present a wideband feedforward linearizer design for CDMA applications, based on an analytical model and speed and accuracy aspects of the results are compared with RF simu...
A Reduced complexity ungerboeck type receiver for multi-code signaling in dispersive channels
Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer; Tanık, Yalçın; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
The main aim in this thesis is to propose multiple signaling waveforms (multi-code) based yet spectrally efficient modulation schemes and competent receiver architectures realizing soft-input-soft-output (SISO) detection. We search for generic suboptimal receiver architectures for Multi-Code Signaling (MCS), which can be represented as selection of one out of M waveforms per signaling interval. The proposed receiver architectures exhibit almost optimal performance at significantly reduced complexity in high...
