Design and Simulation of MC-CDMA Transceiver via Slantlet Transform

By Kattoush A. H. Qasaymeh M. M.

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Apr. 2012

Wireless communications is a rapidly growing piece of the communications manufacturing, with the potential to provide high-speed high-quality information exchange between the portable devices located anywhere in the world. Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) has emerged recently as a promising candidate for the next generation broad-band mobile networks. Recently, it was found that Slantlet transform (SLT) based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is capable to reduce the Inter Symbol Interference (ISI) and the Inter Carrier Interference (ICI), which are caused by the loss of orthogonality between the sub-carriers. SLT-OFDM can support higher spectrum efficiency than Fast Fourier Transform-based OFDM (FFT-OFDM) due to the elimination of the Cyclic Prefix (CP). In this paper, a novel SLT-MC-CDMA transceiver design is presented based on the SLT-OFDM that is used as a basic building block in the design of MC-CDMA transceiver to maintain the orthogonality against the multi-path frequency Selective Fading Channels (SFC). Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the significant gain in the performance of the proposed technique. The Bit Error Rate (BER) of SLT-MC-CDMA scheme is compared with FFT-MC-CDMA and tested in Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN), Flat Fading and Selective Fading Channels (SFH). The simulation results confirmed that, the proposed system outperforms the reference one.

Performance of a Slantlet Based OFDM Transceiver under Different Channel Conditions

By Abbas Hasan Kattoush Qasaymeh M. M.

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2012

A major goal of the next-generation wireless communication systems is the development of a reliable high-speed wireless communication system that supports high user mobility. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system is one of the most promising technologies for current and future wireless communications that has drawn a lot of attention. OFDM usually achieved by Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). In this paper, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is replaced by SlantLet Transform (SLT) in order to reduce Inter-Carrier Interference (ICI), Inter-symbol Interference (ISI), and to improve the bandwidth efficiency by removing the Guard Interval (GI) needed in FFT-OFDM. The new structure was tested and compared with conventional FFT-based OFDM for Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel, Flat Fading Channel (FFC), and multi-path Selective Fading Channel (SFC). Simulation tests were generated for different channels parameters values. The obtained results showed the proposed system has an improved Bit Error Rate (BER) performance compared with the reference system. For SFC the SLT-OFDM performs better than the FFT-OFDM on the lower SNR region, while the situation reverses with increasing SNR values.
