Hi all, I have a mini question and need yr help pls. It is simply about the understanding of sample scheme of OFDM. For convenience, the parameters of a OFDM system are presented as follows. .the sample period: T .FFT/IFFT point: N .the OFDM symbol period: N=B7T Then we obtain that, .the carrier spacing: 1/(N=B7T) .the frequency of the first "baseband" carrie...

Hi, I'm trying to visualize the sub-carriers in my ofdm model. What I do is I generate a BPSK OFDM symbol and after IFFT I plot the FFT of transmitter output. I only get one Sinc graph not the overlapping sub-channels. Could you please correct me to get a proper view of sub-carriers? Best regards Shahin

Hi, i'm an undergraduate student doing some project on Stochastic Processes and i have a few questions on OFDM. There are few things that i don't quite understand and they are mainly in Digital Signal Processing domain (that is not my field of expertise). I'm writing code in MATLAB for transmitting data using sound and use OFDM modulation. Mathematically the transmitted multicarrier ...

## LTE, FFT, OFDM

inHello, In LTE specification, OFDM is implemented using FFT of sizes 128/256/512/1024/1536/2048. These correspond to Downlink bandwidth...

Hello, In LTE specification, OFDM is implemented using FFT of sizes 128/256/512/1024/1536/2048. These correspond to Downlink bandwidth of 1.4/3/5/10/15/20 MHz. I don't know how these N point FFT are selected for OFDM implementation. Let us take 1.4 MHz and 128 point FFT for example. 128 point FFT has N value of (2^N = 128) of 7. With a sub-carrier spacing of 15 KHz, this covers = 7*15 KH...

Im a little confused about how you employ coherent demod in OFDM. After the FFT at the receiver, how do I perform a coherent demodulation-dont I need a carrier for phase estimation in case of BPSK, QPSK etc. Also this is what coherent OFDM is, right?

Hallo everybody, I've just finished my OFDM-Simulation, but I'm still facing a little problem with the AWGN-function provided by Matlab. The transmitted OFDM-Signal s(k) consists of samples of the komplexe baseband signal. (As I've implemented a diskrete time OFDM-baseband-system). The channel should add white Gaussian noise n(k). An the resulting signal r(k) = s(k) + n(k) will than be process...

Hello, I am wondering there is so much literature about carrier and timing recovery in communications*. However as far as I understand, OFDM uses a different approach in synchronization. My question is since OFDM is becoming more and more popular does this mean that these algorithms will cease to be used in future? * synchronization in software radios (chris dick, fred harris, michael ric...

Hi, all: I am interested in CFR of OFDM. I find some relavant paper mentioned low latency feature in the crest factor reduction (CFR) topic of OFDM. I don't understand the reason. It seems to me that several hundreds of microseconds delay is not a big issue. I don't know the specification of WiMax of the latency. Anyone can tell me that? I appreciate to any feedback on this. Thanks.

Hi everbody, I am doing my M.SC thesis on the topic "ICI cancellation in OFDM". I have very limited time, if you can help me I will be grateful to you.... I can implement the OFDM structure in AWGN channel, it works very well.. But when i try to implement the system in a "rayleighchan", I obtain very bad BER results. -------------------------- N=3D256 ; % carriers GI=3DN/4;...

Dear all I am doing a block for a OFDM receiver that receives as input the ofdm received signal and gives as output a rectangular signal (for synchronization) in which each pulse represents a peak in the autocorrelation function realised over the ofdm received signal. How can i define a threshold to detect this peak of the correlation function? Is there another way to do this? I will use di...

Hi guys I have a question about the use of LDPC codes and different bit- loadings which naturally occur as part of a large number of OFDM systems (802.16e, for example). I have seem a few methods in the literature for using LDPC with multi-level (e.g. BICM, MLC, etc.) but none of them seem to tackle the problem I'm interested in. Specifically, consider two of the sub-carriers in an OFDM ...

Hello, Assume you have 2 OFDM transmitters that are simultanously transmitting different data and the data is somehow coded (ie CDMA). After IFFT the ofdm symbol of each transmitter , X1 and X2, passes a freq. selective fading channel: Y = X1.G1 + X2.G2 + N My question is at the receiver, before or after the FFT, how to remove the effect G1 and G2 which are the fading coeffici...

Dear comp.dsp, Though I did try looking at the previous posts related to this, my question has not been answered. So, here goes: I have a simple OFDM+QPSK code wherein I use one symbol to estimate the channel and do the zero forcing (multiply by reciprocal of channel FFT) to get derotated QPSK symbols. Note that the data is uncoded and not interleaved. 1. BER for QPSK+OFDM in an AWGN ...

Hello, everyone. I would like to discuss OFDM's robustnesss againt freq-selective channel. 1) I'm using BPSK( for some reasons, even though mostly we use QPSK, or QAM..) on a very very wide channel. 2) I didn't employ a channel equalizer at the frontend before fft. 3) I, as a reference, followed Richard Van Nee's 'OFDM for wireless multimedia communications' to set the parameters: [1] wor...
