Abstract  A method of communication using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing ("OFDM") includes a step of generating bit streams and the corresponding sets of frequency domain carrier amplitudes modulated as OFDM symbols to be transmitted. A next step includes inserting prefixes as guard intervals in said sample streams. A next step includes transmitting said OFDM symbols. A next step includes using prefix information to estimate the Channel Impulse Response of the transmission channels. A next step includes using the estimated Channel Impulse Response to demodulate said bit streams in the received signals, wherein said prefixes are deterministic and are known to both the receiver and transmitter. The prefixes can be a vector common to the symbols and multiplied by a weighting factor that is different between symbols. The weighting factor can have a complex pseudorandom value. 
Full Text  A METHOD OF COMMUNICATION USING ORTHOGONAL FREQUENCY DIVISION MULTIPLEXING (OFDM), A TRANSMITTER AND RECEIVER FOR USE THEREIN DESCRIPTION FIELD OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to a method of communication using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), a transmitter and receiver for use therein and, more particularly, to channel estimation and tracking in [OFD] communication Background of the Invention OFDM communication has been chosen for most of the modern highdata rate communication systems (Digital Audio Broadcast  DAB, Terrestrial Digital Video Broadcast  DVBT, and Broadband Radio Access Networks  BRAN such as HIPERLAN/2, IEEE802.11a, for example). However, in most cases the receiver needs an accurate estimate of the channel impulse response. In many known OFDM systems, each OFDM symbol of size NN+ is preceded by a guard interval that is longer than the channel impulse response (CIR) and a cyclic prefix of D N+ samples is inserted as the guard interval at the transmitter, the prefix consisting of D samples circularly replicated from the useful OFDM symbol time domain samples. The cyclic prefix enables very simple equalisation at the receiver, where the cyclic prefix is discarded and each truncated block is processed, for example using Fourier Transform (usually Fast Fourier Transform), to convert the frequencyselective channel output into N parallel flatfaded independent subchannel outputs, each corresponding to a respective subcarrier. For equalisation purposes, numerous strategies exist. Following the zero forcing approach, for example, each subchannel output is, unless it is zero, divided by the estimated channel coefficient of the corresponding subcarrier. Like other digital communication systems, OFDM modulation encounters problems at high Doppler spreads, which occur notably when the user is moving fast, for example in a car. HIPERLAN/2, for example, was designed to work only up to speeds of 3 m/s ("pedestrian speed"). Accordingly, the channel impulse response needs to be constantly tracked and updated, especially in the presence of high Doppler spreads. In a known OFDM communication system pilot tones are added which may change their position from one OFDM symbol to another. The amplitudes and positions of the pilot tones are known to the receiver. The receiver uses the pilot tones to estimate the channel coefficients of the corresponding carriers. This method is widely used, but it degrades the system performance, since a certain number of carriers cannot be used for data, since they are reserved for the pilot tones. It is also known to add learning sequences (See for example EBU Review Technical No. 224, August 1987, "Principles of modulation and channel coding for digital broadcasting for mobile receiver", by M. Alard and R. Lassalle.). In HIPERLAN/2, for example, there are at least 2 learning OFDM symbols per frame (i.e. 2 OFDM symbols of 2 • 4/us duration in total per 2ms). If the channel changes quickly, there must be many more training sequences and the consequence is an even bigger degradation in the system performance. Many of the known systems are unable to decode all carriers of OFDM symbols in the presence of channel nulls. Recent innovations propose ways for decoding OFDM symbols even in the presence of channel nulls (see for example the publication entitled "Reduced Complexity Equalizers for ZeroPadded OFDM transmissions" by B. Muquet, Marc de Courville, G. B. Giannakis, Z. Wang, P. Duhamel in the proceedings of the International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing ('ICASSP') 2000 and the publication entitled "OFDM with trailing zeros versus OFDM with cyclic prefix: links, comparisons and application to the HiperLAN/2 system" by Muquet, B.; de Courville, M.; Dunamel, P.; Giannakis, G. in the proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on Communications, 2000, Volume: 2. However, these publications do not offer responses to the problems referred to above concerning channel estimation and channel tracking. Ideally, the OFDM modulation system would keep all the advantages of classic OFDM and additionally allow very simple and completely blind channel estimation at the receiver. No additional redundancy would be added to the system and therefore no bandwidth would be lost. Such a system would be advantageous in lowmobility scenarios and would make OFDM systems applicable to highmobility scenarios as well. Many of the examples and illustrations presented below are based on the assumption N = 4 • D, that is to say that the size of the prefix (0 samples) is assumed to be one quarter of the size of the useful OFDM symbol (N samples). This corresponds to the case of HiperLAN/2 or IEEE802.11. This restriction is introduced for sake of simplicity only. It will be appreciated that the examples and illustrations are applicable more generally to the case of NN+, D N+, the necessary adaptation being basically straightforward. Summary of the invention The present invention provides a method of, and a transmitter and a receiver for, communication using OFDM as described in the accompanying claims.

Detailed description of the preferred embodiments Figure 1 shows an OFDM communication system in accordance with one embodiment of the invention comprising a transmitter comprising an OFDM modulator 1 and a receiver comprising an OFDM demodulator 2, the transmitter and the receiver communicating over a communication channel 3. An input bitstream is modulated onto a set of N carriers whose carrier amplitudes are given by the vector , corresponding to OFDM symbol number k. Afterwards, the time domain OFDM signal is generated by means 4 which performs an Inverse Fourier Transform operation, or preferably an Inverse Fast Fourier Transform ('IFFT) operation where (.)r is the transposition operator and (•)* is the complex conjugate operator: The resulting parallel signal x (k) vector is converted to a series signal by a paralleltoseries converter 5, a prefix, represented by the Dxl vector being inserted into the signal as guard interval between each OFDM symbol to produce a series digital signal xn. The series digital signal xn is then converted to an analogue signal x(t) by a digitaltoanalogue converter 6 and transmitted over the channel 3. The channel 3 has a Channel Impulse Response H(k) = C(k) and also introduces noise v. At the receiver 2, an analogue signal r(t) is received and converted to a digital signal rn by an analoguetodigital converter 7. The digital signal rn is then converted to a parallel signal by a seriestoparallel converter r(k) and equalised and demodulated by equalisation and demodulation means 9 to produce demodulated signals s"'(k). In the following analysis, consideration of noise is omitted for the sake for simplicity. However, including the consideration of noise does not significantly modify the results. In some known OFDM communication systems, the guard interval is used to add some redundancy (D samples of redundancy are added) by introducing a cyclic prefix, for example in the following manner: In other words, data from the end of the frame is repeated by the transmitter in the guard interval to produce a prefix. In accordance with this embodiment of the present invention, however, the prefix samples inserted as guard interval of OFDM symbol number k, ak.c0 to ak.Co 1, are deterministic and are known to said receiver as well as to said transmitter. The prefixes comprise a vector that is common to the symbols multiplied by at least one weighting factor ak, so that the prefixes have the overall form The weighting factor ak may be constant from one symbol to another. However, in a preferred embodiment of the invention, the weighting factor ak differs from one symbol to another, the elements of a given vector PD being multiplied by the same weighting factor. With an OFDM modulator in the transmitter functioning in this way, blind channel estimation in the receiver can be done simply and at low arithmetical complexity. In particular, the receiver can constantly estimate and track the channel impulse response without any loss of data bandwidth. Moreover, the demodulator at the receiver can have advantageous characteristics, ranging from very low arithmetical cost (at medium performance) to high arithmetical cost (very good system performance). More particularly, in the preferred embodiment of the invention, the prefix of D samples that is added in the guard interval comprises a precalculated suitable vector of D samples that is independent of the data and that is weighted by a pseudorandom factor ak that only depends on the number k of the latest OFDM symbol: For the purposes of the analysis below, a second prefix/OFDM symbol vector is defined as follows: Several choices for are possible. It is possible to choose that is to say that can be of any complex value. However, any ■ leads to performance degradation compared to preferred embodiments of the invention. It is possible to limit the choice of ak, somewhat less generally to with This choice usually leads to good system performance, but the decoding process risks to be unnecessarily complex. Accordingly, in the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the phase of ak is chosen so that where m is an integer, N is the useful OFDM symbol size and D is the size of the pseudorandom prefix. This choice is particularly advantageous when using the specific decoding methods described below. For the sake of simplicity, the following analysis assumes that the weighting factor has been chosen as m integer. However, it will be appreciated that the mathematical adaptation to any of the cases presented above is straightforward. It proves to be very useful to choose ak such that its phase changes from OFDM symbol to OFDM symbol. The constant prefix PD is preferably chosen with respect to certain criteria, for example the following: • In the frequency domain, PD is as flat as possible over the frequency band used for data carriers. • In the frequency domain, PD is as near to zero as possible for all unused parts of the band. • In the time domain, PD has a low peaktoaveragepowerratio (PAPR). • The length of PD is the size of the OFDM guard interval, that is to say D samples. Alternatively, a shorter sequence of length D chosen where DD zeros are appended. With these criteria, without any complication of the transmitter, the receiver is able to estimate the channel impulse response blindly, track the changes of the channel impulse response blindly and perform an arithmetically simple equalization. An example of a frame of OFDM symbols in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in Figure 2. The operation of the system will first be described for the specific case where. ak is constant and equal to 1. Now, the modulation unit of the transmitter is clearly defined. In the following, the operations to be performed in the receiver are considered. Each received OFDM symbol selected at the input of the demodulator 9 can then be expressed as follows (neglecting additive noise): where the channel impulse response of the demodulator 9 is assumed to be is the contribution of the demodulator 9 channel matrix corresponding to interblockinterference and is its contribution to inter symbolinterference. The components of the received signal corresponding to interblock interference are illustrated in Figure 3, where blank elements correspond to zero values, for an example where N = 4D (for example, in the case of HiperLAN/2 or IEEE802.11, N = 64 and D = 16). It will be seen that [HIBI] is a matrix of size (N+D)x(N+D) with a triangular submatrix of size (D1)x(D 1) at its upper righthand corner, illustrated by Figure 7, the other elements of the matrix being zero. The components of the received signal corresponding to intersymbol interference are illustrated in Figure 4, for the same case and in the same manner as Figure 3. It will be seen that is a matrix of size with triangular submatrices on its major diagonal as illustrated by Figure 7 and triangular submatrices of size DxD on the diagonal immediately below the main diagonal as illustrated by Figure 8, the other elements of the matrix being zero. The channel impulse response seen by demodulator 9 is represented by the sum of the interblockinterference and the intersymbolinterference as shown in Figure 5. The resulting signal for this example is shown in Figure 9, where are successive parts of the OFDM symbol #k containing as well contributions of the preceding and following prefix convolved by the channel, are corresponding parts of size D of the useful signal transmitted and is a corresponding part of size D of the following prefix in this example. Of course, the example may be generalised to any The expectation values of the parts of the received signals are as follows: It will be appreciated that the expectation values of the useful parts x0(k) to x3(k) of the OFDM symbol tend to zero over a large number of symbols since they are quasirandom with zero mean. However, the prefix PD is known to the receiver (and in this embodiment is constant over successive symbols) and enables to be estimated, by approximating the expectation values E0 and E4 over a large number R of symbols: The sum of the expectation values E0 and E4 is then given by: A first embodiment of a method of channel impulse response estimation on D symbols in accordance with the present invention utilises the expression of the above equation as follows: where the matrices are the (Fast) Fourier Transform and Inverse (Fast) Fourier Transform matrices respectively and the prefix PD is of size D. The matrices are illustrated by Figure 7, Figure 8 and Figure 6 respectively. Accordingly, in this first method, the channel impulse response is estimated using the following steps: • Perform a componentbycomponent division of the first result by the The resulting channel estimation is hD of size Dxl. This method works well in many circumstances and has a low arithmetic cost, since its calculations are based on matrices of size DxD. However, an OFDM symbol which usually is of size N>D samples will be equalized based on this estimation. Thus, this method works very well if the prefixspectrum is nonzero everywhere in the FFTDXD domain (and, of course, everywhere well above channel noise). This can be a troublesome limitation in other circumstances. A second embodiment of a method of channel impulse response estimation on D carriers in accordance with the present invention avoids this limitation, at the expense of increased arithmetic cost. This second method does not estimate hD based on a deconvolution in the FFTDXD domain as presented above, but estimates directly based on the received vector This equation is represented in more detail in Figure 10. In this second method, the channel impulse response is estimated using the following steps: The last step of the list presented above is not essential for the basic equalization algorithm but may be useful, for example in algorithms used to reduce noise levels. The above methods have been described with reference to the specific case where ak is constant and equal to 1. In preferred embodiments of the invention, however, the weight ak of the prefix to each symbol k is a preferably complex pseudorandom factor that only depends on the number k of the latest OFDM symbol. The adaptations to this method of the basic equations (shown in Figure 9) are shown in Figure 11. It is found that equations 4 and 8 are to be adapted as follows: The procedures for blind channel estimation described above remain applicable by setting This amounts to weighting the preceding and following D prefixsamples of each received symbol by the corresponding respectively. The values of the prefixes are chosen as a function of selected criteria, as mentioned above. Values that have been found to give good results with the criteria: • Low PeaktoAveragePowerRatio of the time domain signal • Low OutofBand Radiation, that is to say maximise the energy of the prefix over the useful band and not waste prefix energy over null carriers • Spectral Flatness, e.g. SNR of each channel estimates shall be approx. constant • LowComplexity Channel Estimation, i.e. by prefix spectrum whose spectral contributions are mainly just phases (i.e. of constant modulus), are shown in Figure 12 by way of example, for the following OFDM parameters: • Size of the Prefix in Time Domain: 0=16 Samples • Size of the OFDM symbols in the frame: W=64 Samples • Carriers where channel coefficients are to be estimated (over N+D=80 carriers): Carriers 1 to 52 • OutofBand region: Carriers 76 to 80 • Maximum PAPR has not been limited • OutofBand Radiation as low as possible • Spectral Flatness as good as possible. The channel estimation is done by calculating the expectation value over a number of samples of the received vector as explained above. If the tracking of the channel is done based on a first estimation of the channel impulse response and a number R of OFDM symbols, the first estimate is then updated as follows: based on the ideas of the first method for channel estimation that has been presented above. Alternatively, the second method can be applied by where the factors are positive real numbers that are used for normalization and weighting of the different contributions. Thus, for example it is possible to take older OFDM symbols less into account for the channel estimation than later ones. The Fourier matrix [F] can be chosen in the N+D carriers or D carriers domain Several equalization methods are advantageous using the pseudorandom prefix OFDM. In general, the different methods offer different performance complexity tradeoffs. A first embodiment of a method of equalization uses zero forcing in the N+D Domain and offers low complexity equalization. With the Channel Impulse Response matrix can be represented as follows: Still assuming that the length of the channel impulse response is D, the coefficients are set to zero. This is a socalled pseudocirculant matrix, corresponding to the case where is not equal to 1, and can be diagonalized as follows: With the assumption that and that the weighting factor has been chosen as , where m is an integer, and if the received vector R(k) is: the procedure of this method of zero forcing equalisation is: • Perform Multiplication • Calculate the frequency shifted, estimated CIR coefficients • Extract the N equalized samples of the kih OFDMdata symbol to SEQ(k). • Transform the kth OFDM data symbol. into the frequency domain by a Fourier transform • Proceed with metric calculation, etc. on the received equalised carriers. Another embodiment of a method of equalization uses a method known from studies on zero padding. The received vector R(k) in the OFDM Pseudo Random Prefix Scheme can be expressed as follows, where [P] contains a (N+D)xN pre coding matrix and IN is the NxN identity matrix: The Channel Impulse Response estimation obtained as described above is then used together with the known values of PD to perform the following operation SUBSTITUTE SHEET (RULE 26) in which the known prefix values are multiplied by the Channel Impulse Response estimation and the result subtracted from the received signal. In the general case, [H\ is a pseudo circulant channel matrix. So, the diagonalisation of such matrices can then be performed in order to calculate [H]PD efficiently. Then, several equalization approaches are possible, for example the Zero Forcing (ZF) approach or the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) equalization approach. Examples of MMSE equalization methods are described in the articles "OFDM with trailing zeros versus OFDM with cyclic prefix: links, comparisons and application to the HiperLAN/2 system" by Muquet, B.; de Courville, M.; Dunamel, P.; Giannakis, G.

B.; Wang, Z.; Duhamel, P. International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2000. In one example, the equalisation is performed based on a zeroforcing approach by multiplying ym by the MoorePenrose pseudoinverse [G] of the The definition of the MoorePenrose pseudoinverse is, among others, discussed by Haykin in the book: "Adaptive Filter Theory" by Simon Haykin, 3rd edition, Prentice Hall Information and System Science Series, 1996.
