A.1 An Introduction to OFDM

Topics:

A.1.1 Introduction

A.1.2 Principle of OFDM

A.1.3 Implementation of transreceivers

A.1.1 Introduction

One of the main reason to use OFDM is to increase robustness against

frequency-selective fading or narrowband interference

In a single-carrier system, a single fade or interferer can cause the entire link

to fail, but in a multi-carrier (MC) system, only a small percentage of the subcarriers (SCs) will be affected

The difference between the conventional non-overlapping MC technique and

overlapping MC technique is: we save almost 50% of the BW in the latter case

To realize this, however, we need to reduce cross-talk between SCs, which

means that we want orthogonality between the different modulated carriers

OFDM is a modulation scheme that is especially suited for high-data-rate

transmission in delay-dispersive environments

It converts a high data stream into a number of low-rate streams that are

transmitted over parallel, narrowband channels that can be easily equalized

OFDM dates back some 40 years; a patent was applied in mid 1960s by Chang

[1966]

Climini [1985] was the first to suggest OFDM for wireless communications

But it was only in the early 1990s that advances in hardware for DSP made

OFDM a realistic option for wireless systems

Currently OFDM is used for DAB, DVB, WLANs (IEEE 802.11a, IEEE

802.11g)

A.1.2 Principle of OFDM

OFDM splits the information into N parallel streams which are then

transmitted by modulating N distinct carriers (henceforth called SCs or tones)

Symbol duration on each SCs thus becomes larger by a factor of N

In order for the receiver to be able to separate signals carried by different SCs,

they have to be orthogonal

FDMA have large freq. spacing between carriers This however wastes precious spectrum A narrower spacing of SCs can be achieved in OFDM as shown in Fig.1.1.2 Let us assume modulation on each SCs is PAM with rectangular pulse shape in time domain. as long as the receiver does the appropriate demodulation (multiplying by exp (-j2πfrt) and integrating over symbol duration). as depicted in Fig. A.3 We first split our original data stream into N parallel sub-streams. Kshetrimayum Fig.1.N-1 Each of the parallel data streams then modulates one of the carriers .2 OFDM (Carrier spacing W/N) In order for the receiver to be able to separate signals carried by different SCs.

. this is the reason why we have a P/S (parallel to serial) conversion directly after the IFFT At the receiver. S. Kshetrimayum Let the complex transmit symbol at time instant i on the nth carrier be Cn.0 Now this is nothing but the IFFT of the transmit symbols Therefore the transmitter can be realized by performing an IDFT In almost all practical cases. we can reverse the process: sample the received signal. one after another.e. a S/P conversion and perform FFT on this vector The result is an estimate of the original data Cn Analog implementation of OFDM would require multiple local oscillators each of which has to operate with little phase noise and drift: in order to retain orthogonality between the different SCs This is usually not a practical solution . and sample it at the instances tk=kT/N s (t ) = k k k j 2π n 1 N −1 ∑ C e N T n = 0 n .i The transmit signal is then ∞ ∞ N −1 ∑ s(t ) = si ( t ) = ∑ ∑ Cn .EC635 Advanced Topics in Communication Systems R.i gn ( t − iT ) i =−∞ i =−∞ n = 0 where the basis pulse g (t) is a normalized frequency shifted rectangular pulse n t 1 j 2 π nT for 0 < t <T g (t ) = e n T 0 otherwise Let us know without loss of generality consider the signal only for i=0. as temporal samples. and the IDFT is realized as an IFFT Note that input to this IFFT is made up of N samples (the symbols for the different SCs) And therefore the output from the IFFT also consists of N values These N values now have to be transmitted. the number of samples N is chosen to be a power of 2. write a block of N samples into a vector – i.
