Full Text  The present invention relates generally to an appurtus for reducing in an OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) mobile communication system, and in particular, to a transmitting/receiving apparatus and method for reducing through block coding a high PAPR (PeaktoAverage Power Ratio) resulting from multiple subcarriers. 2. Description of the Related Art In general, OFDM is a twodimensional multiplexing scheme of TDM (Time Division Multiplexing) and FDM (Frequency Division Multiplexing) in combination. An OFDM symbol is transmitted over subcarriers forming a subchannel. By allowing the spectrum of each subcarrier to overlap with orthogonality, OFDM increases the overall spectral efficiency. Since IFFT (Inverse Fast Fourier Transform) and FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) provide OFDM modulation and demodulation, an efficient digital implementation of a modulator and a demodulator can be carried out. Furthermore, due to its robustness against frequencyselective fading and narrowband interference, OFDM is effective for highspeed data transmission for the current European digital broadcasting and largevolume radio communication systems based on such standards such as IEEE 802.11 a, IEEE 802.16 and IEEE 802.20. Since an OFDM communication system transmits data over multiple subcarriers, the amplitude of a final OFDM signal is the sum of the amplitudes of the subcarriers. Hence, if each subcarrier has the same phase, a very high PAPR results. With a very high PAPR, an amplifier exceeds its linear operation range and a signal suffers from distortion after being processed by the amplifier in a typical OFDM communication system. Consequently, a transmitted OFDM signal does not have a constant amplitude variation due to the phase difference between subcarriers. Moreover, backoff from an operating point from the maximum power available from the amplifier increases, thereby decreasing amplifier efficiency and increasing power consumption. The high PAPR signal reduces the efficiency of a linear amplifier and forces the operating point of a nonlinear amplifier into a nonlinear region. As a result, the high PAPR introduces both inband distortion and outofband spectrum regrowth. Many techniques have been proposed for PAPR reduction. One of them is to use a predistorter having the nonlinear and inverse function characteristics of a power amplifier to be linearized, for avoiding signal distortion. Also, a nonlinear amplifier can be made to operate in a linear region through a backoff from its operating point. However, these methods have the shortcomings of circuit complexity in a high frequency band, low power efficiency, and cost increases. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is, therefore, an object of the present invention to provide a block coding apparatus and method for reducing a PAPR using complementary sequences in an OFDM mobile communication system. it is another object of the present invention to provide an apparatus and method for increasing a coding rate, limiting to a predetermined level (3dB), a PAPR resulting from multiple subcarriers, to thereby improve spectral efficiency in an OFDM mobile communication system.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT A preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described herein below with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the following description, wellknown functions or constructions are not described in detail since they would obscure the invention in unnecessary detail. The present invention proposes a novel block coding method for PA PR reduction in an OFDM mobile communication system. In traditional block coding, a low PAPR codeword of all codewords is chosen for transmission. From extensive research results, most codewords with low PAPR are Golay complementary sequences. Based on this idea, complementary sequences are simply formed out of data using a Gmatrix and a bvector. The conversion of data to Golay complementary sequences confined the PAPR to 3dB, enabling even error correction. This block coding method was adopted in a European Magic Wand system. Transmission of an information word of length w at a coding rate W/2W1 takes 2W1code symbols, signifying that less information words than codewords are actually transmitted. Thus, as the coding rate decreases with an information word length, spectral efficiency is reduced. Given a large number of subcarriers, a plurality of block encoders can be used to maintain a coding rate, increasing the PAPR to 6dB or higher. A PAPR reduction technique in accordance with the present invention adopts a novel block coding that uses two encoders, limiting a PAPR to 3dB and resulting in a block coding rate of W/2W1, twice higher than the existing block coding rate. Nevertheless, the proposed method preserves the error correction capability of the traditional block coding. Before describing an embodiment of the present invention, it will be made apparent that the use of a plurality of encoders increases the PAPR and decreases error correction capability. A complex baseband OFDM symbol is expressed as (Equation Removed) where Xn is a complex data symbol, N is the number of subcarriers, and Ts is an OFDM symbol period. And PAPR is defined as (Equation Removed) where P peak and Pav are peak power and average power, respectively. They are determined by (Equation Removed) Therefore, a theoretical max PAPR is (Equation Removed) A multisubcarrier signal having complementary sequences has a PAPR equal to or less than 3dB due to the following properties of the complementary sequences. The complementary sequences are also complementary in power spectrum. For example, the power spectra of a complementary pair, AN and BN, be (Equation Removed) where FH is Fourier transform, RN (n) is an aperiodic autocorrelation function (Equation Removed) and δn is a Dime delta function. The aperiodic autocorrelation function is defined as (Equation Removed) where * is a complex conjugate. And the Dirac delta function is defined as (Equation Removed) Hence, (Equation Removed) One way to reduce PAPR, maintaining a coding rate in the case of a large number of subcarriers, is to use m encoders (EN/m, N is the number of subcarriers and m is the number of encoders used). For example, when two encoders are used for an OFDM communication system with N=8, the coding rate of each encoder (Equation Removed) the maximum PAPR is given (Equation Removed) When (Equation Removed) where m is the number of encoders. As described above, the use of a plurality of encoders increases the PAPR and decreases the error correction capability. However, the present invention reduces the PAPR from 6dB computed by Eq. (11) to 3dB, maintaining the error correction capability, when two encoders (EN/2) are used instead of one encoder (EN) in an OFDM communication system using N .subcarriers. For BPSK (Binary Phase Shift Keying) symbols, R(= 2%) is increased fromW/2W1toW/2W2 as compared to the traditional block coding. 1. N=8, BPSK 1.1 Transmitter using the proposed block coding FIG. 1 is a block diagram of a transmitter using BPSK for N=8 according to an embodiment of the present invention. Referring 1o FIG. 1, a mapper 110 modulates input data, and a serialtoparallel (S/P) converter 112 converts a serial modulated data to five parallel data streams k1, k2, k3, k4, k5 and outputs some of them kl, k2, k3 to a first encoder 116 and the others k4, k5 to a second encoder 118. Each of the encoders 116 and 118 carries out block coding on the input data with (Equation Removed) other words, the first and second encoders 116 and 118 are E4 encoders that output 4(N/2) coded bits for the input of 3 data bits. To form a complementary sequence with data X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7, X8 applied to the input of an IFFT 122, one k6 of the data at the input of the second encoder 118 is designated as an operator, and its value is determined according to k, to ks. 1.2 Indicator setting in the proposed block coding For BPSK with N=4, the input k1, k2, k3 and output X1, X2, X3, X4 of the first encoder 116 are in the relationship illustrated in Table 1. (Table Removed) In view of the properties of the complementary sequences, for a codeword with low PAPR, its reverse, inverse, and Mary modulation have low PA PR. The indicators in Table 1 indicate this relationship. Given two independent base indicators a and b, "a" and "b" denote their inverses, and "A" and "B" denote their reverses. The outputs are length 4 complementary sequences with a 3dB PAPR. For BPSK, if N=4, there are two base indicators a and b and if N=8, there arc four base indicators a, b, c, d. For N=8, a total of 256 (MN=28) codewords are available and 64 (=26) of them have a PAPR equal to or less than 3dB. Table 2 is a tabulation of 32 (=25) complementary sequences selected from the 64 codewords with the 3dB or lower PAPR. (Table Removed) In accordance with the present invention, to confine the PAPR to 3dB or less using complementary sequences unused in the traditional block coding in two encoders, the outputs of the encoders are divided by 4 (=N/2) and both output sets arc represented as one of the abovelisted complementary sequences indicated by the conesponding indicators. This implies that a)] complementary sequences with 3dB or less PAPR for N=8 can be formed using complementary sequences for N=4. That is, when N=8, two E4 encoders are used instead of a single E8 encoder, for which the 32 complementary sequences listed in Table 2 are available as compared to 16 complementary sequences for the traditional block coding. Therefore, the coding rate is increased. The use of two E4 encoders increases the coding rate directly from 4/8 to 67, but the resulting generation of codewords other than those listed in Table 2 increases the PAPR beyond 3dB. Hence, values at the output of the encoders are made a complementary sequence by controlling the inputs of the encoders in accordance with the present invention. In the present invention, for BPSK and N=8, the coding rate is 5/8 so that the codewords at the input of the IFFT 122 are confined to X1, X2, X3, X4, X5, X6, X7, X8 of Table 2 and as a result, the PAPR is limited to 3dB or lower. for BPSK and N=8, the values as k1, k2, k3, k4, k5 listed in Table 3 below at the inputs of the two E4 encoders 112 and 116 lead to complementary sequences with a 3dB PAPR at the input of the IFFT 122. The present invention makes a coding rate be 5/8 for BPSK and N=8, so that (he codewords at the input of the IFFT 122 are X1, X2, X3, X4,. X5, X6, X7, X8 of Table 2 and thus the PAPR is confined to 3dB or lower. The input sequences k1, k2, k3, k4, k5 of the E4 encoders 1 16 and 118 listed in Table 3 render encoder outputs complementary. That is, Table 3 lists encoder input sequences that lead to a 3dB PAPR for N=8. (Table Removed) The operator k6 is decided in an operator generator 120 according to the input data k1 to k4 based on an analysis of the relationship between input sequences. The operator k6 is calculated by (Equation Removed) where • denotes multiplication. As a result, the PAPR is confined to 3dB, not 6dB with use of all complementary sequences and the coding rate is 5/8, twice higher than 5/16 in the traditional block coding using one encoder. The output of 1FFT 122 is (hen processed by parelleltoserial converter 124. FIG. 3 illustrates an example of OFDM signal waveforms in the time domain for N=8 in a conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding, and FIG. 4 illustrates an example of OFDM signal waveforms in the time domain for N=8 in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. From a comparison between FIGs. 3 and 4, it is noted that the waveforms have higher peaks in the time domain in FIG. 3 than in FIG. 4, and the inventive block coding using two encoders confine the peak values. 1.3 Receiver using proposed block coding FIG. 2 is a block diagram of a receiver using the proposed block coding. As illustrated in FIG. 2, noisy received data transmitted over a channel is applied to the input of two decoders after FFT demodulation. The decoders make hard decisions to correct noiseincurred errors in the data. Referring to FIG. 2, a signal y is received and converted to parallel data in serialtoparallel converter 210. Decoders 214 and 216 each subtract a bvector bN/2 from 4 (=N/2) data received from an FFT 212 and correct errors in the data using a paritycheck matrix HTN/2. The error correction is carried out by finding an error pattern based on a syndrome and removing the error pattern from the input data. The syndrome is achieved by multiplying the received data and the transposed version of the H matrix. With no errors, the syndrome is 0. On the contrary, with errors, the syndrome contains at least one 1. The H matrix is a paritycheck matrix satisfying G• HT=0 (zero matrix). Decoded data at the output of decoders 214 and 216 contain information data and parity data. The parity data is at least one operator bit inserted by the transmitter. An operator remover 218 removes the at least one operator bit from the decoded data and outputs only the remaining data k, to k5. A paralleltoserial (P/S) converter 220 converts the information data K1 to k5 to serial data. A demapper 222 recovers the serial data to the original data. FIG. 5 illustrates an example of an OFDM signal constellation trajectory for N8 in the conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding, and FIG. 6 illustrates an example of an OFDM signal constellation trajectory in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. As noted from FIGs. 5 and 6.OFDM signals are concentrated in a particular area in the inventive block coding. In accordance with the present invention, since a minimum Hamming distance is maintained, the error correction capability is preserved. Furthermore, the use of the two decoders 214 and 216 using a coding rate of 1/2 reduces the si/.c of the receiver and thus facilitates decoding. 2. Typical operator generation for BPSK For BPSK and N=16, the PAPR is limited to 3dB, increasing the coding rate with use of two E8 encoders in the above manner. The coding rate is 4/8 ( = W/2W1) and thus 8 (=4x2) data streams are applied to the input of the two encoders. For BPSK and N=16, the total number MN of available codewords is 216 and 2' codewords have a PAPR equal to or less than 3dB. Here, 26 of the 29 codewords are complementary sequences and a maximum block coding rate using these complementary sequences is 6/16. In the traditional block coding, only half the complementary sequences, that is 25, are used. Given 26 complementary sequences with a PAPR at or below 3dB, k, to k6 are information data and k7 and k8 arc operators determined by (Equation Removed) Consequently, the coding rate is 6/16, not the conventional coding rate of 6/32. FIG. 7 illustrates OFDM signal waveforms for N=16 in the time domain in the conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding, and FIG. S illustrates OFDM signal waveforms for N=16 in the time domain in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. The signal waveforms have higher peaks in the time domain in FIG. 7 than those in the block coding using two encoders in FIG. S. FIG. 9 illustrates an OFDM signal constellation trajectory for N=16 in the conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding, and FIG. It) illustrates an OFDM signal constellation trajectory for N=16 in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. As noted from FIGs. 9 and 10, OFDM signals arc concentrated in a particular area when the block coding of the present invention is applied. Even if the number N of subcarriers increases, the block coding can be performed according to the subcarrier expansion in the present invention. Thus. the operation generator formula for BPSK can be generalized according to N (=2r), as (Equation Removed) where r is a natural number more than 2. (Equation Removed) Here, the number of operators is r2. FIGs. 17 and 18 are block diagrams of a transmitter and a receiver using block coding for BPSK and N according to Eq. (14). Referring to FIG. 17, a mapper 1710 modulates transmission data. An S/P converter 1712 converts the mapped w(r2) data, k, to kw_(r.2), to parallel data. All or part of the parallel data k, to kw.(r.2) are applied to the input of an operator generator 1714. The operator generator 1714 generates at least one operator bit KWtr3 to kw by Eq. (14). The operator bit signifies parity data for information data output from the S/P converter 1712. The number of operator bits is r2 for N=2r. The parity data kw_(r_3) to kw and the information data k, to kw.(r2) are fed to a plurality of encoders, here two encoders 1716 and 1718. The two encoders 1716 and 1718 each receive an equal half of the data. That is, the first encoder 1716 receives the information data k, to kw/2, while the second encoder 1718 receives the other information data kw/2+1 to kw(r_2) and the parity data kw(r3) to kw. The encoders 1716 and 1718 output coded data X, to XN through block coding. Specifically, the first encoder 1716 outputs X, to XN/2 for the input of k, to kw/2, whereas the second encoder 1718 outputs XN/2.,, to XN for the input of kw/2+1 to kw. (r2 and kw(M to kw. An IF FT 1720 OFDMmodulates the N data received from the first and second encoders 11716 and 1718, and a P/S converter 1722 converts carriers. Referring to FIG. 18, an S/P converter 1810 converts a received input signal lo parallel modulated symbols x, to xN. An FFT 1812 fastFouriertransforms (he modulated symbols to block coded information data X, to XN. The information data X, to XN are equally divided for the input of a plurality of decoders, here two decoders 1814 and 1816. Hence, the first decoder 1814 receives the information data X, to XN/2 and the second decoder 1816 receives the information data XN/2+1 to XN. The encoders 1814 and 1816 outputs information data k; to k„ 2 and kw/2+1 to kwby harddecision decoding of the input data. At the same time, the decoders 1814 and 1816 perform error correction. The parity data signifies at least one operator bit inserted in the transmitter. An operator remover 1818 identifies the at least one operator bit from the decoded data, removes the operator bits kw_(I..2)+1 to kvv, and outputs only the information data k, to kw(r2). A P/S converter 1820 converts the information data to serial data. A demapper 3 822 recovers the serial data to the original data. 3. Block coding for QPSK and N=8 The block coding method of the present invention is applicable to an Mary PSK modulation scheme as well as BPSK. For QPSK (Quadrature Phase Shift Keying) and N=8, 48 codewords are available. 45 of the codewords have PAPRs equal to or less than 3dB and the coding rate is 5/8 for these 43 codewords, lower than the coding rate 6/8 for BPSK and N=8. Among the 45 codewords, there are 44.5 complementary sequences. Thus, the resulting coding rate is 4.5/8. This implies that the number of codewords with 3dB or less PAPR for QPSK is less than that for BPSK. FTG. 11 illustrates a maximum coding rate versus the number of subcarriers. As noted from FIG. 11, coding rate loss is small when the PAPR is limited to 3dB and QPSK performs at a coding rate less than BPSK or 8PSK. In real implementation, the European Magic Wand system adopted block coding using complementary sequences and 8PSK. In QPSK, a symbol is formed by ks=kbo+jkbe (o denotes odd and e denotes even) where kb represents a bit and ks represents a symbol. Given the coding rate of 4.5/8 in the proposed method, kb1, to kbS are information bits and khm lo khl2 are parity bits. ks5 (=k69+j.kb10) is formed with ksl to ks4 and a bit k69 by (Equation Removed) and ksl, is determined by (Equation Removed) where mod(x, M) denotes modulo M for x. As a result, the coding rate is 4.5/8. FIG. 12 illustrates OFDM signal waveforms for QPSK and N=8 in the lime domain in the conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding, and FIG. 13 illustrates OFDM signal waveforms for QPSK and N=8 in the time domain in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. It is noted that the waveforms illustrated in FIG 12 have higher peaks than those illustrated in FIG. 13 of which the PAPRs are limited according to the inventive block coding using two encoders. FIGs. 19A to 19D illustrate OFDM signal waveforms for QPSK in the time domain when N= 32, 64, 128, and 256, respectively in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding. FIG. 14 illustrates an OFDM signal constellation trajectory for QPSK and N=8 in the conventional OFDM mobile communication system using block coding and FIG. 15 an OFDM signal constellation trajectory for QPSK and N=8 in the OFDM mobile communication system using block coding according to the embodiment of the present invention. As illustrated, OFDM signals are concentrated in a particular area when the inventive block coding is applied for QPSK. FIG. 16 illustrates the CCDF of an OFDM signal when N=8. Referring to FIG. 16, since the PAPR is confined to 3dB by block coding using complementary sequences, the probability of the PAPR exceeding 3dB is zero. As described above, block coding using complementary sequences limits PAPR to 3dB or lower, while maintaining error correction capability, thus achieving a coding gain. Despite this advantage, as the number of subcarriers increases, a coding rate decreases. In accordance with the present invention, on (he other hand, a novel block coding scheme with improved spectral efficiency is proposed for PAPR reductoon the case, where a large number of subcarriers, are used. That is, instead of one EN encoder, two EN/2 encoders adopted and part of their inputs are set as parity data, so that the PAPR is decreased from 6dB to 3dB and a minimum Hamming distance is maintained. Therefore, the error correction capability is preserved. Furthermore, the reduction of the EN block to the EN/2 blocks facilitates decoding. The coding rate is increased iromW/2W1toW/2W2, which leads to a 3dB spectral efficiency improvement, as compared to the traditional PA PR reduction method through block coding. Notably, the present invention is applicable irrespective of the number of subcarriers and also to Mary PSK modulation schemes.
