Iterative cyclic prefix reconstruction for precoded SC-FDE

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A cyclic prefix reconstruction scheme is proposed for precoded single-carrier systems with frequency-domain equalization (SC-FDE) that employ insufficient length of cyclic prefix. For SC-FDE, cyclic prefix is employed to facilitate frequency-domain equalization at the receiver. Since inserting cyclic prefix incurs a loss in bandwidth-utilization efficiency, it is desirable to limit the length of cyclic prefix for SC-FDE. This paper designs the energy spreading transform (EST), a precoder that enables iterative reconstruction of missing cyclic prefix. The performance of the proposed scheme is shown to be close to that of SC-FDE with enough length of cyclic prefix.
