CPM Equalization to Compensate for ISI due to Band Limiting Channels
MetadataShow full item record
We propose two approaches to the problem of equalization of band-limited CPM signals. First, our efforts are focused on shortening the channel impulse response so that we can use a low complexity MLSE equalizer. We implement the channel truncation structure by Falconer and Magee and adapt it to work with CPM signals. This structure uses a, a more derivable, pre-filter to shape the overall response of the channel, so that its impulse response is of shorter duration. Simulation results show that near-MLSE performance can be obtained while dramatically reducing MLSE equalizer complexity.
In our second approach, we focus on eliminating the group-delay variations inside the channel passband using an FIR pre-filter. We assume the channel to be time-invariant and provide a method to design an FIR filter so that -when convolved with the band limiting filter - it results in more constant group-delay over the filter passband. Results show that eliminating the group-delay variations in the band limiting filter passband reduce the amount of ISI and improve bit error rate performance.
