Incremental Pilots in OFDM


what will we discuss
What will we discuss?
  • Brief overview of OFDM
    • Why use OFDM?
    • How does it work?
  • Pilots
    • Why do we need them?
    • Incremental Pilots
      • Concept
      • What am I trying to do?
why use ofdm
Why use OFDM?
  • Higher spectral efficiency
  • Lower multi-path distortion
ofdm challanges
OFDM challanges
  • Synchronization requirements are much more strict :
    • Requires more complex algorithms for time / frequency synch
  • Peak-to-average power ratio
    • Large signal peaks require higher power amplifiers
    • Amplifier cost grows nonlinearly with required power

Main equation:

Channel estimation equation

why incremental pilots
Why Incremental Pilots?
  • Some channels (e.g. where there is more frequency selective fading), increased number of pilots will help.
  • More pilots
    • Interpolation error small -> Better channel estimation -> Better BER

incremental pilots trade off
Incremental pilots trade-off

Loss in redundancy acceptable

Better CE

Better BER

Less redundancy:

Worse BER

Work to do
  • See the performance under different channel conditions
  • Different coding schemes (Convolutional, Turbo, LDPC)
  • Complexity of implementing higher coding rates for different coding schemes
