Whitepaper: Adaptive Prediction Iterative Channel Estimation for OFDM Signal Reception in a Frequency Selective Fading Channel

by Tohoku UniversityJan 01, 2008

This research paper from Tohoku University describes, pilot-assisted adaptive prediction iterative channel estimation proposed for the antenna diversity reception of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signals. Adaptive prediction filtering is incorporated into iterative channel estimation process with decision feedback and reverse modulation. The filter tap weights are adaptively updated according to changes in the multipath propagation environment. For the adaptation of tap weights, the normalized least mean square (NLMS) algorithm is applied that uses the noisy instantaneous channel gains obtained by reverse modulation and from pilot symbols as the reference signal.
