Multiuser Detection for Continuous Phase Modulation over Rayleigh
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2005
We study multiuser (MU) continuous phase modulation (CPM) over Rayleigh fading channels with a receiver antenna array. An optimum symbol-by-symbol MU detector is derived and its practical implementation with reduced-complexity is considered. According to the numerical results, the MU detector performs very close to a system free of interference by other users, when each user has more than one receiving antenna. For three receiving antennas, this difference is less than 0.25 dB, 0.4 dB, and 0.6 dB for two, three and four users, respectively. Moreover, the proposed system is bandwidth efficient as CPM is a bandwidth efficient modulation scheme, and the MU system only uses the single user CPM bandwidth.
