Hi, i've forgotten where i read about this but i know for OFDM, if i want the output of my IFFT to be real, i can only use half of the subcarriers with the other half the complex conjugate mirror of the 1st half. It apparantly got to do with the properties of Fourier transform or something like that. I'm currently writing my report on OFDM. Can someone direct me to references or literature...

Hi, I am working on an OFDM system using Matlab. The bits received at the receiver have a constant error ( i.e., avg 200 bits out of 1000 are always wrong).. when I decreased no. of bits in a symbol to let say 49 and FFT length to 64, there was no error. It looks like that there is some error in the computation of IFFT/FFT bolcks by Matlab (maybe some rounding of the data by Matlab). I am unsu...

Hi all I have basic question regarding OFDM symbol genration.IFFT is taken to genrate a OFDM symbol.that part is undersood. My question is that whether that IFFT taken is complex or real.i believe it is complex as the ouput is shown to be assymetrical.so if it is complex,the data to be transmitted also has to be complex. from where we fill

Hi all! My question is about getting the impulse response from the transfer function of a system. I have simulation data for the transfer function of an LTI system. I make the data Hermitian symmetric so that when I do an IFFT on it, I get a real impulse response. So far so good. But the problem is the shape of the impulse response I get after the IFFT. It oscillates at the beginning, decays t...

I have a question that has been bugging me fo rsome time and I am hoping someone here can help me get to the bottom of it. It is a zero padding & FFT issue. Here goes; If I take 2 random signals for deconvolution (say 1000 samples and 1500 samples long with same sampling time). If I zero pad both out to 4096, take FFTs, devide one by another, then take iFFT, I get a graph of one signal deconvo...
