Hi All,, Plz help me for ofdm simulation. I have tried to simulate ofdm signal with 64 subcarriers, with an oversampling of factor 4 in frequency domain. Now I've got 256 QPSK symbols with zero paddings.I'm doing IFFT of 256 points. But I need to modulate my data on 64 subcarriers. then how would it be possible if i'm doing IFFT/FFT of 256 points. plz clarify me this thing, if i have zeronpadde...

Hi all, Can anybody enlighten me a little bit using concept of eigenvalues of the channel matrix? I vaguely heard about that the eigenvalues correspond to the impulse response of the channel matrix and then it somehow did blah blah blah, so the OFDM idea is good... blah blah blah, I am not sure I understood it... anybody provides some intuition and thoughts? Thanks a lot! ...

I am designing ofdm equalizer.Ofdm frame contains: -19 symbols -24 subcarriers per channel -pilot symbols that are comb type arranged -BPSK modulation The period of one frame (19symbols) is 625us,pilots are inserted every four symbol in time direction and every four subcarrier in frequency direction. I made real measurements to determine the channel nature between base station and rece...

Hi, I find that there are Null Subcarriers that are frequency guard bands (there is no transmission). But, What is the use of DC (Direct Current) subcarrier in OFDM ? Thx in advans, Karthik Balaguru

## How many samples are there in one period of a subcarrier which is produced after IFFT in OFDM systems?

Hello, In an OFDM system, by using N subcarriers we get one OFDM symbol. But before that the data is first mapped into frequency domain by the constellation mapper and we get N-parallel streams as an input to the IFFT process. The IFFT takes these N-parallel streams and produces N-parallel subcarriers in time domain, all these subcarriers are in digital form and has different frequencies. Let?...

## SNR to EbNo in OFDM scheme

hey all, I made an ofdm simulation in matlab, I want it to output Ber/EbNo plot, and I use the awgn function in order to add white noise in the channel, and as u know the awgn function requires SNR as input, so I need to convert from Eb/No to SNR. I know this: Es/No(dB)=10log10(Tsymb*Fs)+SNR(dB) now I need to convert the Es/No of the ofdm signal to Eb/No: Es/No(dB)=Eb/No(dB)+10log10(...

I have made a simulation of ofdm on baseband and it works fine. to simulate the sampling clock synchronization problem, i have resampled the baseband waveform using resample function in MATLAB. yt = resample(yt, 1601, 1600); Now, even with such a small offset, my receiver does not work (yt contains 1600 samples comprising 20 ofdm symbols each of 64 point + 16 cyclic prefix = 80 samples).

Could anyone tell me if my understanding for the acronym of ICI is right or not? There are 2 types of ICI, one is Inter Carrier Interference which is caused by the frequency offset between transmitter and receiver in OFDM system, and another is Inter Code Interference which is caused by the Code Divison Multiplexing in OFDM-CDM system.

Hi All. I have never worked on OFDM but still I have a doubt. I know how to model time varying frequency selective channel for single carrier system in *time domain*. I am pretty sure that exactly the same way you can model the time varying frequency selective channel for OFDM. But is it something like you can model the time varying frequency selective channel for OFDM in *frequency domai...

## LTE, FFT, OFDM

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...

## Computing per stream SNR in a full CSI MIMO-OFDM system for fast link adaptation

Dear all, I have a MIMO-OFDM system, like 802.11n. I assume full CSI in both TX and RX and my goal is to obtain in the receiver a per spatial stream and per OFDM subcarrier SNR estimation in order to perform a fast link adaptation algorithm, i.e. I want to compute SNR[i][k] where i=1..Nss (Nss: number of spatial streams) and j=1..Nsc (Nsc: number of OFDM subcarriers). Since I assume ful...

Hi All, I have this problem on the level of white noise to be added into an OFDM system. Firstly, I have series of symbols mapped to a series of subcarriers and then go through an IFFT (size 2048). For simplicity, I assumed that it goes through a 1 path channel (i.e. no change to the OFDM signal). I then added some white guassian noise. Now here is the problem, if say I want a SNR of 10 dB,...
