RRNS-Convolutional Concatenated Code for OFDM Based Wireless Communication With Direct Analog-to-Residue Converter
Source: Gannon University
The modern telecommunication industry demands higher capacity networks with high data rate. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a promising technique for high data rate wireless communications at reasonable complexity in wireless channels. OFDM has been adopted for many types of wireless systems like wireless local area networks such as IEEE 802.11a, and Digital Audio/Video Broadcasting (DAB/DVB). The proposed research focuses on a concatenated coding scheme that improve the performance of OFDM based wireless communications. It uses a Redundant Residue Number System (RRNS) code as the outer code and a convolutional code as the inner code. Here, a direct conversion of analog signal to residue domain is done to reduce the conversion complexity using sigma-delta based parallel analog-to-residue converter.
