  • Publication number: 20200177312
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for implementing spatial processing with unequal modulation and coding schemes (MCSs) or stream-dependent MCSs are disclosed. Input data may be parsed into a plurality of data streams, and spatial processing is performed on the data streams to generate a plurality of spatial streams. An MCS for each data stream is selected independently. The spatial streams are transmitted via multiple transmit antennas. At least one of the techniques of space time block coding (STBC), space frequency block coding (SFBC), quasi-orthogonal Alamouti coding, time reversed space time block coding, linear spatial processing and cyclic delay diversity (CDD) may be performed on the data/spatial streams. An antennal mapping matrix may then be applied to the spatial streams. The spatial streams are transmitted via multiple transmit antennas. The MCS for each data stream may be determined based on a signal-to-noise ratio of each spatial stream associated with the data stream.

  • Publication number: 20170264476
    Abstract: A resource block (RB)-based multicarrier modulation (MCM) transmitter and receiver structure for spectral agile systems are disclosed. The transmitter and the receiver are capable of sharing opportunistically available and non-contiguous channels with other users. The RB-MCM partitions the available spectrum, contiguous or non-contiguous, into multiple RBs (same or different sizes), applies a baseband MCM or single carrier modulation, or coded single carrier or multicarrier schemes in each RB with a type of spectral leakage reduction technique, and applies RB modulation for each RB to modulate the signal from baseband to the frequency band of that RB. At the receiver, the received signal may be filtered and RB demodulation may be applied to put each RB signal in baseband and a baseband multicarrier or single carrier or coded single carrier or coded multicarrier demodulation may be applied to each RB signal. Different RBs may use different modulation schemes.

  • Patent number: 7773681
    Abstract: In a wireless communication system, a method and apparatus for noise estimation of a received OFDM communication signal, wherein the signal comprises a data frame with a preamble having at least one long training field (LTF) containing two substantially similar OFDM symbols, comprise examining the LTF for substantially similar OFDM symbols. The noise power in the signal is estimated and the received signal power is measured. The signal to noise ratio is calculated and the signal power is determined by subtracting the noise power from the signal noise.

  • Publication number: 20090232108
    Abstract: A method and apparatus perform I/Q imbalance estimation and compensation using synchronization signals in LTE systems. Primary and secondary synchronization signals (P-SCH and S-SCH), which carry synchronization information, are embedded in each LTE frame, and are used for receiver I/Q imbalance estimation. Additionally, the performance may be significantly improved by optimally selecting the training data in I/Q imbalance estimation.
