Iterative ICI cancellation based on factor graphs for large FFT sizes
Paper in proceedings, 2011
This paper focuses on the challenging problem of signal reception for orthogonal frequency division (OFDM) systems in high mobility environments. A novel framework based on the well-known belief propagation (BP) algorithm is pro- posed for joint inter-carrier interference (ICI) cancellation, signal detection and channel decoding. The performance of the mentioned near-optimal detection strategy is analyzed over a general bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) system applying low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. The inclusion of pilot symbols is also considered to analyze how they assist the detection process. A full parallel turbo receptor is derived which shows good performance when the ICI power is high due to high mobility or the use of large FFT sizes.
