MIMO Communication Systems Using Hierarchical Modulation

2014-04-25
This paper considers multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. The disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver is that the computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas and the number of bits per modulation symbol. Using MIMO communication system with 16-ary hierarchical quadrature amplitude modulation (16-HQAM), we propose a receiver structure which can be an alternative to maximum-likelihood (ML) receiver. 16-HQAM involves a base layer and an enhancement layer. In the proposed receiver, the base layer is detected first with a minimum mean square error (MMSE) detector which is followed by ML detection of the enhancement layer. We examine the bit error rate (BER) performance of our low complexity receiver structure and compare it to the performance of other receiver structures. This work does not consider channel coding, which will be included along with the analysis of the proposed system in future studies.

Performance Analysis of Beamforming Techniques in MU-MIMO Systems with Residual RF Impairments
Tamer, Ufuk; SUNU, CANSU; AKTAŞ, EMRE; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2015-05-19)
Multiple-input multiple-output wireless communication systems substantially suffer from RF Impairments in the course of the physical implementation of transceivers. In this paper, we study the performance of beamforming techniques in MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) system with one transmitter and two receivers. We showed that the interference cancellation beamforming is suitable in the proposed scenario. In addition, we study the performance of MU-MIMO system with the suitable beamforming technique by taking RF i...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Cooperative Communication

In cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase systems robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. In cooperative communication systems which use hierarchical modulation, error propagation is the most important problem that prevents achieving full diversity gain. Thresholds that depend on the signal to noise ratio (SNR) value between the source and the relay can be used to mitigate error propagation. If the instantaneous SNR between the source and th...
MIPS Extension for a TCAM Based Parallel Architecture for Fast IP Lookup
Erdem, Oguzhan; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi (2009-09-16)
This paper discusses the feasibility of the use of minimum independent prefix set (MIPS) algorithm in a ternary content addressable memory (TCAM) based parallel architecture proposed for high speed packet switching. MIPS algorithm is proposed earlier to transform a forwarding table into one that contains the minimum independent prefix set. In this paper we propose MIPS algorithm to be integrated into a TCAM based parallel IP lookup engine. We first analyze the table compression performance of the MIPS algor...
Parallel decodable channel coding implemented on a MIMO testbed
Aktaş, Tuğcan; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis considers the real-time implementation phases of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication system. The parts which are related to the implementation detail the blocks realized on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) board and define the connections between these blocks and typical radio frequency front-end modules assisting the wireless communication. Two sides of the implemented communication testbed are discussed separately as the transmitter and the receiver parts. In a...
