Multi-Carrier and Spread Spectrum Systems is one of thefirst books to describe and analyze the basic concepts ofmulti-carrier OFDM transmission and its combination with spreadspectrum (MC-CDMA). The different architectures and detectionstrategies as well as baseband-related transceiver components areexplained. This includes topics like FEC channel coding anddecoding, modulation and demodulation (IFFT/FFT), digitalI/Q-generation, time and frequency synchronisation, channelestimation, frequency domain equalization and RF aspects such asphase noise and non-linearity issues. Concrete examples of itsapplications for cellular mobile communication systems (B3G/4G) aregiven. Further derivatives of MC-SS (such as OFDMA, SS-MC-MA andDFT-spread OFDM) and their corresponding applications in the LTE, WiMAX, WLAN and DVB-RCT standards are detailed. Capacity andflexibility enhancements of multi-carrier OFDM systems by differentMIMO diversity techniques such as space time/frequency coding (STC, SFC) and software defined radio concepts are also described.
Written in a highly accessible manner this book provides aunique reference on the topics of multi-carrier and spread spectrumcommunications, assisting 4G engineers with theirimplementation.
