Delay-spread estimation using cyclic-prefix in wireless OFDM systems

Athaudage, Chandranath R. N. & Jayalath, Dhammika (2003) Delay-spread estimation using cyclic-prefix in wireless OFDM systems. In IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, 2003 (ICASSP '03)., 6-10 April 2003, Melbourne.


A novel cyclic-prefix based delay-spread estimation technique for wireless OFDM systems is proposed. The technique uses change of gradient of a correlation function as the strategy to detect delayed arrival paths. Estimation of the symbol timing and frequency synchronization information is also inherent in the technique. The proposed technique can be computationally efficiently implemented using the Viterbi search algorithm. Numerical results demonstrate the accuracy of the technique in estimating the relative timing (delay) and magnitude (power) of delayed paths in a multipath environment. The delay-spread information provided by the proposed technique can be adaptively used to improve the accuracy of the frequency domain channel response interpolation process in OFDM systems.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
