  • Enhancing robustness and perturbation tolerance of cognitive radio engines
           with metacognition
    • Authors: Hamed Asadi; Haris Volos; Michael M. Marefat; Tamal Bose
      Pages: 173 - 185
      Abstract: Abstract A cognitive radio engine (CE) is an intelligent agent which observes the radio environment and chooses the best communication settings that best meet the application’s goal. In this process, providing reliable performance is one of the major tasks in designing CEs for wireless communication systems. The main purpose of this work is providing predictable performance and controlling the cost of intelligent algorithms based on the CE’s experience and complexity analysis respectively. In this work, we extend our meta-CE design to control the cost of computations and provide more reliable performance for providing the minimum requirement of the radio applications in different scenarios. To achieve this, we use robust training algorithm (RoTA) in two different levels alongside of the individual CE algorithms. The RoTA, enables radio to guarantee some minimum output performance based on the learning stages. RoTA uses confidence interval approximation for standard normal distribution to calculate the lower and upper bounds of CE’s expected performance to analyze the reliability of decisions. Moreover, in the case of non-stationary environments, RoTA is facilitated by forgetfulness factor to provide minimum performance guarantees. The second level of RoTA operates in meta-level to control the amount of computation complexity of intelligent algorithms in all levels with respect to the obtained performance and complexity analysis.

  • Analysis of dynamic capabilities for spectrum sharing in the citizens
           broadband radio service
    • Authors: Seppo Yrjölä; Marja Matinmikko; Miia Mustonen; Petri Ahokangas
      Pages: 187 - 201
      Abstract: Abstract This paper seeks to identify and analyze the sources of value creation and capture by key stakeholders in the new Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) three tier spectrum sharing framework introduced by the US President’s Council of Advanced Science & Technology. More flexible and dynamic use of the 3.5 GHz spectrum aims to increase the efficiency of spectrum use in delivering fast growing and converging mobile broadband and media services while paving the way to innovations in technology and business models. In this paper, we focus on key stakeholders’ capability to deal with combined internal and external resources and capabilities in doing business, referred to as dynamic capability. Spectrum sharing, introducing a rapid change in the technology and business environments, requires dynamic capabilities from spectrum offering, spectrum utilization, and spectrum management perspectives. We focus on defining key CBRS functional domains and identifying their key antecedents, elements, and outcomes. The analysis highlights the key role of the regulator in creating a sharing framework with incentives for all the key stakeholders, with different operational and business requirements, and enabling scaling ecosystem. Increased system dynamics in spectrum sharing will introduce a need for big data analytics, near real time network management capabilities and low cost third tier general authorized access radios, leveraging dominant technology ecosystems. This study provides viewpoints for stakeholders about additional ingredients and actions, which may be relevant to promote spectrum sharing in the form of the CBRS. The concept of dynamic capabilities was found useful to analyze the sources of competitive advantage regarding CBRS spectrum sharing.

  • Quality of service assurance-based auction for spectrum sharing systems
    • Authors: Munawwar M. Sohul; Miao Yao; Abdallah S. Abdallah; Matt Carrick; Vuk Marojevic; Jeffrey H. Reed
      Pages: 203 - 216
      Abstract: Abstract Spectrum sharing has emerged as a promising solution to address the radio frequency spectrum bottleneck. The FCC has recently proposed a spectrum sharing framework that introduces a spectrum access system as the governing entity that manages access to spectrum for primary and secondary users to coexist. An important aspect of dynamic spectrum management is the pricing of spectrum from the perspective of both the primary and secondary users. Existing auction-based spectrum sharing models do not take into consideration an important aspect of successful secondary user operation: the duration of the available spectrum opportunity. In this paper we propose an auction-based spectrum sharing framework that statistically accounts for the accuracy of the estimates of spectrum availability duration. The proposed auctioning process allows both the PU and the SU to iteratively adjust their evaluation about the available spectrum opportunities over time and to achieve a price combination that maximizes their objectives. A method is proposed to statistically assure spectrum availability, supplementing the reporting method. Hidden Markov models and non-stationary hidden Markov models are used to estimate the activity of the spectrum, with simulation results showing high prediction accuracy.

  • Spectrum consumption model builder and analysis tool: a software tool to
           enhance spectrum sharing
    • Authors: Carlos E. Caicedo Bastidas; Arnav Mohan
      Pages: 217 - 226
      Abstract: Abstract Regulatory changes to spectrum management frameworks in the U.S. and worldwide are promoting the use of dynamic spectrum access (DSA) and spectrum sharing mechanisms. Wireless service environments that use these mechanisms will rely heavily on radio interference control and management techniques to coordinate the boundaries of spectrum use for devices owned/managed by different entities. To communicate the characteristics and limits of spectrum use of an RF transmitter, receiver, system or collection of systems, a common data structure to represent this information must be in place. Spectrum consumption models (SCMs) attempt to capture this information and support a set of computations that allow for the determination of the compatibility of the use of spectrum between devices and/or systems that communicate the characteristics of their use of spectrum with these models. SCMs are currently being standardized within the IEEE DySPAN-SC 1900.5.2 workgroup. This paper presents our results and ongoing efforts in developing an open source tool for the construction and analysis of SCMs as a means to promote their use and showcase their potential for enhancing spectrum sharing and DSA interactions.

  • Steepest descent opportunistic MIMO radar: spectrum sharing design
    • Authors: Mohammed Hirzallah; Tamal Bose
      Pages: 227 - 237
      Abstract: Abstract Opportunistic radar appeared recently as a solution for opening more spectrum for future radar applications. Opportunistic radar harnesses spectrum opportunities and transmits without causing intermittent interference to incumbent applications. We propose a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar pre-coder design that enables spectrum sharing with long-term-evolution (LTE) base stations. In the proposed design, pre-coder settings are configured continuously using a steepest descent (SD) approach given certain interference constraints. The presented designs have lower computational complexity compared to other designs proposed in literature. We construct the SD based MIMO radar and analyze its performance.

  • Wideband distributed spectrum sharing with multichannel immediate multiple
    • Authors: Mingming Cai; J. Nicholas Laneman
      Pages: 239 - 255
      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes a radio architecture for distributed spectrum sharing of multiple channels among secondary users (SUs) in a wide band of frequencies and a localized area. A novel multichannel immediate multiple access (MIMA) physical layer is developed such that each SU can monitor all the channels simultaneously for incoming signals and achieve fast rendezvous within the multiple channels. The spectrum utilized by an SU pair can be changed dynamically based upon spectrum sensing at the transmitter and tracking synchronization and control messages at the receiver. Although information about the number of active SUs can be used to improve the spectrum sharing efficiency, the improvement is small relative to the cost of obtaining such information. Therefore, the architecture adopts multichannel carrier sense multiple access for medium access control regardless of the number of active SUs. A prototype implementation of the architecture has been developed using an advanced software defined radio platform. System tests demonstrate that the spectrum sharing efficiency of the prototype is close to an upper bound if the signal-to-noise ratio is sufficiently high. Among other practical issues, imaged interference caused by hardware IQ imbalance limits system performance. In the prototype, the MIMA is based on an LTE waveform. Therefore, the spectrum sharing radio can be potentially applied to the 3.5 GHz radar band for citizens broadband radio service (CBRS).

  • Blind channel estimation for massive MIMO
    • Authors: Ture Peken; Garrett Vanhoy; Tamal Bose
      Pages: 257 - 266
      Abstract: Abstract In order to scale with the demand of higher data rates and improved spectral efficiency in next generation wireless communication systems, a large-scale multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) technology called massive MIMO has been proposed. In massive MIMO, appropriate signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) values can be achieved by the addition of base station (BS) antennas in place of increasing transmit power. Pilot-based channel estimation is widely used in conventional MIMO systems, where pilot signal sequences are sent from the user terminals (UTs) to the BS to estimate the channel. In massive MIMO-based cellular networks, channel estimation in a given cell will be impaired by the pilot signal sequences transmitted by users in other cells—rendering the addition of antennas or transmit power ineffective. This effect is called pilot contamination. Therefore, pilot-based channel estimation limits the performance of massive MIMO. Semi-blind and blind methods are alternatives to pilot-based channel estimation that perform channel estimation with short pilot signal sequences and without pilot signal sequences, respectively. Blind channel estimation is one of the promising solutions to the pilot contamination problem in massive MIMO. This paper compares, using MATLAB simulations of a cluster-based COST 2100 channel model, the performance of pilot-based, semi-blind, blind, and adaptive-blind channel estimation methods. The pilot contamination effect on different channel estimation methods and how channel estimation methods can be used to overcome pilot contamination are shown. Finally, an adaptive independent component analysis (ICA)-based channel estimation method, which outperforms conventional ICA in terms of computational complexity, is proposed.

  • Faster-than-Nyquist signaling: on linear and non-linear reduced-complexity
           turbo equalization
    • Authors: Albert Abelló; Damien Roque; Jean-Marie Freixe; Sébastien Mallier
      Pages: 267 - 276
      Abstract: Abstract In the framework of digital video broadcasting by satellite-second generation (DVB-S2), we analyze a faster-than-Nyquist (FTN) system based on turbo equalization and low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. Truncated maximum a posteriori and minimum mean square error equalizers provide a reduced-complexity implementation of the FTN system. On the other hand, LDPC codes allow us to demonstrate attractive performance results over an additive white Gaussian noise channel while increasing spectral efficiency beyond the Nyquist rate and keeping a complexity comparable to that of a current DVB-S2 modem.

  • Secret key generation scheme from WiFi and LTE reference signals
    • Authors: Christiane L. Kameni Ngassa; Renaud Molière; François Delaveau; Alain Sibille; Nir Shapira
      Pages: 277 - 292
      Abstract: Abstract Physical layer security has emerged as a promising approach to strengthen security of wireless communications. Particularly, extracting secret keys from channel randomness has attracted an increasing interest from both academic and industrial research groups. In this paper, we present a complete implantation of a secret key generation (SKG) protocol which is compliant with existing widespread Radio Access Technologies. This protocol performs the quantization of the channel state information, then information reconciliation and privacy amplification. We also propose an innovative algorithm to reduce the correlation between quantized channel coefficients that significantly improves the reliability and the resilience of the complete SKG scheme. Finally we assess the performance of our protocol by evaluating the quality of secret keys generated in various propagation environments from real single sense LTE signals, and real single and dual sense WiFi signals.

  • Classification of LPI radar signals using spectral correlation and support
           vector machines
    • Authors: Garrett Vanhoy; Thomas Schucker; Tamal Bose
      Pages: 305 - 313
      Abstract: Abstract In modern radar systems, low probability of intercept (LPI) waveforms are used to make detection by a potential adversary difficult. This is accomplished using wideband waveforms, frequency hopping, and continuous waveforms (FMCW) to reduce the signal profile. The low signal profile of the LPI signal enables the radar to perform detection and or target tracking while the target remains unaware. Several modulation techniques such as polytime codes, polyphase codes, FSK, and FMCW are used to produce LPI signals for transmission. This paper looks at the ability of spectral correlation along with a support vector machine in order to automatically classify the different LPI signal types in a non-cooperative environment.

  • Design considerations for channelizer based receivers in generalized
           frequency division multiplexed OFDM systems
    • Authors: Fred J. Harris; Chris Dick; Elettra Venosa; Xiaofei Chen
      Pages: 315 - 327
      Abstract: Abstract An orthogonal frequency division multiplex signal delivered to receiver’s discrete Fourier transform (DFT) can be easily partitioned when the signal components have been assembled in a single modulator. This is because the signal contains the phase, frequency, and time aligned basis set components of the inverse DFT. In order to demodulate a composite signal set formed by multiple users each contributing a disjoint subset of the basis set, their transmissions must be coordinated to assure their separate contributions are time and frequency aligned at the receiver’s antenna to maintain their mutual orthogonality required for DFT based demodulation. When a large number of users access the single receiver, it becomes quite difficult to coordinate transmission time and frequency offsets of each user, to assure orthogonality in the DFT. Channelizers hold the promise of user orthogonality as a channelizer property as opposed to a DFT property. Here we consider and demonstrate one channelizer contender for cell site receivers.

  • An iterative receiver framework for energy-efficient communications with
           experimental validation
    • Authors: Qasim Chaudhari; Brian Krongold
      Pages: 329 - 342
      Abstract: Abstract Reducing transmit power is the most straightforward way towards more energy-efficient communications, but it results in lower SNRs at the receiver which can add a performance and/or complexity cost. At low SNRs, synchronization and channel estimation errors erode much of the gains achieved through powerful turbo and LDPC codes. Further expanding the turbo concept through an iterative receiver—which brings synchronization and equalization modules inside the loop—can help, but this solution is prohibitively complex and it is not clear what can and what cannot be a part of the iterative structure. This paper fills two important gaps in this field: (1) as compared to previous research which either focuses on a subset of the problem assuming perfect remaining parameters or is computationally too complex, we propose a proper partitioning of algorithm blocks in the iterative receiver for manageable delay and complexity, and (2) to the best of our knowledge, this is the first physical demonstration of an iterative receiver based on experimental radio hardware. We have found that for such a receiver to work, (1) iterative timing synchronization is impractical, iterative carrier synchronization can be avoided by using our proposed approach, while iterative channel estimation is essential, and (2) the SNR gains claimed in previous publications are validated in indoor channels. Finally, we propose a heuristic algorithm for simplifying the carrier phase synchronization in an iterative receiver such that computations of the log likelihood ratios of the parity bits can be avoided to strike a tradeoff between complexity and performance.

      Pages: 343 - 351
      Abstract: This paper introduces a software-defined radio implementation of an OFDM-based transceiver for the prototyping and testing of 5G physical layer algorithms. The implementation uses high level abstraction tools to develop and test the algorithms, significantly reducing the time and effort needed to test new features. The proposed architecture adopts interconnecting FIFOs between each functional block, reducing the critical paths and enabling complex designs to be implemented at higher clock rates. The proposed LTE-like transceiver is implemented using COTS FPGA and RF development boards. The real-time over-the-air demonstrator has an on-the-fly scalable bandwidth from 20 to 61.44 MHz, attaining close to 500 Mb/s when using 256-QAM modulation.

  • FVF LDO regulator with dual dynamic-load composite gain stage
    • Authors: Chengpeng Li; Pak Kwong Chan
      Abstract: Abstract A low-voltage output-capacitorless low-dropout regulator using dual dynamic-load composite gain stage for flipped voltage follower topology is presented. It also incorporates a delay discharge circuit which aims to reduce the long discharge time arising from the large capacitive load, thus achieving the overshoot time reduction and sustaining fast transient characteristic when driving low-power digital system with internal heavy capacitive load requirement. The regulator can support a minimum of 0.75 V input voltage with 0.5 V output voltage. It consumes 49.4 µA whilst maintaining the stability for a capacitance load range from 470 pF to 10 nF. For a current load transient from 0 to 10 mA with 200 ps edge time, the settling time is 0.38 µs for the load capacitance of 3 nF. The obtained transient figure-of-merit is 0.42 mV. This transient metric outperforms the representative prior-art reported works.

    • Authors: Shweta Kumari; Maneesha Gupta
      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes a high performance voltage differencing inverting buffered amplifier (VDIBA). The transconductance of the proposed circuit is enhanced by using positive feedback technique with only two extra transistors used in active load. Moreover, the bandwidth of proposed circuit is enhanced by using resistive compensation technique. The performance of proposed VDIBA is demonstrated by detailed frequency analysis. Furthermore, it is shown that the transconductance can be enhanced up to 4.61 mS at biasing current of 300 µA. In addition, a third order low pass filter is given as an application example to confirm the high performance of the proposed VDIBA. The proposed low pass filter operates at natural pole frequency of 15 MHz. The proposed VDIBA and its filter application are implemented using TSMC 90 nm CMOS technology in Cadence virtuoso schematic composer at ±0.6 V supply voltage.

  • Parameters improvement and suggestion of new design of capacitive
    • Authors: Zine Ghemari; Salah Saad
      Abstract: Abstract The capacitance variation of capacitive accelerometer as a function of vibratory movement relative frequency is presented using a developed model validated by simulation and experimental tests. The damping rate effect on accelerometer capacitance variation is studied for four damping rate values. The first value is that of accelerometer used in the experimental tests, the second and third are taken from the recent works and the fourth is the value proposed in this work. A comparative study has been made to mount our improvements on the capacitive accelerometer performances by the comparison between the proposed accelerometers in the recent works. Finally, a new capacitive accelerometer with improved parameters is proposed having many benefits over the existing accelerometers. These benefits are: appropriate choice of damping rate (equal to 0.68), very low measurement error (limited to 0.5%), high accuracy (equal to 99.5%), low consumption of electrical energy and high sensitivity and reliability.

  • ZigBee-based indoor localization system with the personal dynamic
           positioning method and modified particle filter estimation
    • Authors: Mahmut Aykaç; Ergun Erçelebi; Noor Baha Aldin
      Abstract: Abstract We introduce a portable Wireless Sensor Network; which characterized by its great precision, fast detection, real time-monitoring and cheapness. The received signal strength indication (RSSI) is used for estimating the location of the target based on the trilateration algorithm. One of the biggest issues when acquiring a precise location is the numerous calculations that are required within particle filtering. Therefore, we have suggested a modified particle filtering (MPF) using a ZigBee model; in order to minimize both error and huge computations within the indoor environment based on the variance and gradient data-resampling. Increasing the particle weight near the estimated position using RSSI localization helps in avoiding undesired estimations. The MPF algorithm has been enhanced to predict a moving target within an indoor location with an average accuracy of approximately 1.5–2 m while consuming less power. The efficient number of particles has been improved, in addition to the estimated error; in comparison to the classical methods. The results prove that our algorithm can effectively meet the general indoor environmental demands with significant improvements over other algorithms and good position’s evaluation.
