8 doc.: IEEE n Submission Jan 2004 M.Faulkner, ATcrcSlide 8 Frequency Domain Channel Estimation [5] LS estimation is a noisy observation, given by: Linear minimum mean-squared error (LMMSE) estimator is a conditional mean estimator: LMMSE exploits frequency domain correlation of h(t) and performs interpolation and filtering of the noisy LS estimation Close to optimal (Weiner Filter) Assumptions Perfect synchronisation and SNR knowledge Exponential decaying channel impulse response LMMSE Processing + H

14 doc.: IEEE n Submission Jan 2004 M.Faulkner, ATcrcSlide 14 Conclusion Frequency domain processing can reduce pilot overhead to Mt normal symbols (Mt * 4  s). Example 8  s for 2x1 Interpolation error increases with delay spread Low overhead pilots perform best at Low SNR. Limiting performance in high delay spread channels with high SNR (are these common?) FTIN has reduced interpolation error and outperforms FIL, except in ISI channels. It is the best of the low overhead schemes. Frequency interleaving (FIL) is preferred because of compatibility. ISI corrupts data more than the channel MSE COMPLEXITY is HIGH –Complexity/bin Cp = No of MIMO Channels * no of operations per bin –For full LMMSE, Cp = (Mr*Mt)*(N/Mt) operations/bin Cp = Mr*N ; N=no. of active bins (=52) –RC systems have between x0.3 to x0.8 reduction.
