    In this paper, the authors propose a channel estimation algorithm based on incremental pilots. These are pilots additionally inserted after puncturing the modulated Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) symbols to enhance channel estimation performance without lowering bandwidth efficiency. A low-density parity-check code puncturing scheme is also proposed to prevent the...

    Design for a Dual-Frequency Antenna-in-Package

    For an Antenna-in-Package (AiP), via holes are used to connect the antenna ground and system ground. In this paper, a dual-frequency AiP with a U-slot embedded in the patch is proposed. By properly arranging three via holes under the non-radiating edge, an AiP with two resonant frequencies is realized. Then...

    Key Establishment and Pairing Management Protocol for Downloadable Conditional Access System Host Devices

    In this paper, the authors investigate the possible security threats to Downloadable Conditional Access System (DCAS) host devices. They then propose a DCAS Secure Micro (SM) and Transport Processor (TP) security protocol that counters identified security threats using a secure key establishment and pairing management scheme. The proposed protocol not...

    RF Band-Pass Sampling Frontend for Multiband Access CR/SDR Receiver

    Radio Frequency (RF) subsampling can be used by radio receivers to directly down-convert and digitize RF signals. A goal of a Cognitive Radio/Software Defined Ratio (CR/SDR) receiver design is to place the Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) as near the antenna as possible. Based on this, a band-pass sampling (BPS) frontend for...

    Efficient Implementation of a Pseudorandom Sequence Generator for High-Speed Data Communications

    A conventional pseudorandom sequence generator creates only 1 bit of data per clock cycle. Therefore, it may cause a delay in data communications. In this paper, the authors propose an efficient implementation method for a pseudorandom sequence generator with parallel outputs. By virtue of the simple matrix multiplications, they derive...

    Relay Performance Analysis of TTR and STR Relay Modes in IEEE 802.16j MMR System

    The IEEE802.16j standard uses non-transparent relay stations to extend coverage. There are two types of nontransparent relay modes, that is, the Time-division Transmit and Receive (TTR) relay mode which can operate with one of two types of frame structures, a single-frame and multi-frame structure, and the Simultaneous Transmit and Receive...

    Performance Evaluation of Service-Aware Optical Transport System

    Legacy optical transport networks have been designed to provide Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) services such as voice traffic with high performance and low latency. However, the world of telecommunications is changing due to the accelerating demand for Ethernet services. Ethernet has been gaining greater interest from both data service providers and...

    Demonstration of RSOA-Based 20 Gb/s Linear Bus WDM-PON With Simple Optical Add-Drop Node Structure

    The authors describe a linear bus wavelength-reused gigabit Wavelength-Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (WDM-PON) with multiple optical add-drop nodes. A commercially available reflective semiconductor optical amplifier-based WDM-PON has a sufficient power budget to provide multiple optical add/drop nodes in 16 WDM channels. Sixteen 1.25 Gb/s WDM channels are successfully transmitted...

    Multihop Rate Adaptive Wireless Scalable Video Using Syndrome-Based Partial Decoding

    The overall channel capacity of a multihop wireless path drops progressively over each hop due to the cascading effect of noise and interference. Hence, without optimal rate adaptation, the video quality is expected to degrade significantly at any client located at a far-edge of an ad-hoc network. To overcome this...

    A Practical RTP Packetization Scheme for SVC Video Transport Over IP Networks

    Scalable Video Coding (SVC) has been standardized as an extension of the H.264/AVC standard. This paper proposes a practical Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) packetization scheme to transport SVC video over IP networks. In combined scalability of SVC, a coded picture of a base or scalable enhancement layer is produced as...
