In this work we consider the uplink of an OFDMA system and present a novel receiver that performs joint frequency offset acquisition, channel estimation and data detection for each active user. The proposed receiver can be used with any subcarrier assignment scheme, and it operates in an iterative fashion. Users' separation is accomplished at the base station through space-alternating generalized-expectation (SAGE) techniques. Each separated user's signal is then passed to an expectation-conditional maximization (ECM)-based processor that jointly performs frequency acquisition, channel estimation and data detection at each iteration. Compared to conventional OFDMA systems, the proposed receiver allows significant reduction of the synchronization overhead as it dispenses from the need of returning estimated frequency offsets back to active users for frequency adjustment.

Abstract

In this work we consider the uplink of an OFDMA system and present a novel receiver that performs joint frequency offset acquisition, channel estimation and data detection for each active user. The proposed receiver can be used with any subcarrier assignment scheme, and it operates in an iterative fashion. Users' separation is accomplished at the base station through space-alternating generalized-expectation (SAGE) techniques. Each separated user's signal is then passed to an expectation-conditional maximization (ECM)-based processor that jointly performs frequency acquisition, channel estimation and data detection at each iteration. Compared to conventional OFDMA systems, the proposed receiver allows significant reduction of the synchronization overhead as it dispenses from the need of returning estimated frequency offsets back to active users for frequency adjustment. Simulations indicate that the proposed scheme provides accurate data detection for unsynchronized OFDMA uplink transmissions over doubly-selective fading channels.
