CP: Cyclic Prefix

- Channel is longer than cyclic prefix (CP)+1
- Adjacent symbols interfere (ISI)
- Subchannel are no longer orthogonal (ICI)

- TEQ mitigates the problem by shortening the channel
- No symbol at demodulator contains contributions of other symbols
- Cyclic prefix converts linear convolution into circular
- Symbol channel FFT(symbol) x FFT(channel)
- Division by the FFT(channel) can undo linear time-invariant frequency distortion in the channel

- Conventional ADSL TEQ design
- Mitigate inter-symbol interference at the TEQ output

- Proposed ADSL TEQ design - Maximize data rate
- Inter-symbol interference at the output of the demodulator (FFT)
- Near-end crosstalk (NEXT)
- Design with respect to digital noise floor (DNF)
- White noise in the channel (colored by TEQ)

- Other impairments present in an ADSL system
- Impulse noise
- Near-end echo
- Far-end echo (of concern in voice-band communication)
- Phase and frequency content distortion (compensated by FEQ)

- Maximize bit rate at the demodulator (FFT) output instead of TEQ output
- Incorporate more sources of distortion into design framework
- Expected contributions
- Model SNR at output of the FFT demodulator
- Data Rate Optimal Time Domain Per-Tone TEQ Filter Bank Algorithm (TEQFB)
- Data Rate Maximization Single TEQ Design

- Results

- Desired signal in kth frequency bin at FFT output is DFT of circular convolution of channel and symbol
- is desired symbol circulant convolution matrix for delay D
- H is channel convolution matrix
- qkis kth column vector of N DFT matrix

- Received signal in kth frequency bin at FFT output
- is actual convolution matrix (includes contributions from previous, current, and next symbol)
- G(*) is convolution matrix of sources of noise or interference

- Proposed SNR model at the demodulator output
- After some algebra, we can rewrite the SNR model as

- adig – Digital noise floor (depends on number of bits in DSP)
- (*)H – Hermitian (conjugate transpose)

- Bits per symbol as a nonlinear function of equalizer taps.
- Multimodal for more than two-tap w.
- Nonlinear due to log and .
- Requires integer maximization.
- Ak and Bk are Hermitian symmetric.

- Unconstrained optimization problem:

- Per channel maximization: find optimal TEQ for every k subchannel in the set of used subchannels I
- Generalized eigenvalue problem
- Bank of optimal TEQ filters

- Find a single TEQ that performs as well as the optimal TEQ filter bank.
- Solution may not exist, may be unique, or may not be unique.
- Maximizing b(w) more tractable than maximizing bDMTint(w).
- b(w) is still non-linear, multimodal with sharp peaks.

- Find a root of gradient of b(w) corresponding to a local maximum closest to the initial point
- Parameterize problem to make it easier to find desired root.
- Use non-linear programming
- Find a good initial guess at the vector of equalizer taps w – one choice is the best performing TEQ FIR in TEQFB.
- No guarantee of optimality
- Simulation results are good compared to methods we looked at

- Measurement of the SNR in subchannel k
- S = 1000 symbols
- Every subchannel in a symbol loaded with a random 2-bit constellation point Xki, passed through the channel, TEQ block and FEQ block (where applicable) to obtain Yki

- Bit rate reported is then

- Used to calculate single DFT point
- Denote with yk(n) as the signal emanating from TEQ making up TEQFB
- Then, the corresponding single point DFT Yk is:
where Gk (-1) = Gk (-2) = 0 and n={0,1,…,N}
