Abstract

Superposed multicarrier transmission scheme is known to improve frequency utilization efficiency when several wireless systems share the same spectrum. To suppress the effect of interference, forward error correction (FEC) metric masking is proposed. In this technique, the log-likelihood ratio (LLR) that corresponds to the superposed band is set to zero, because received bits that correspond to the superposed band are unreliable. However, to apply FEC metric masking, the information about superposed band must be known at the receiver beforehand. Furthermore, the received bits contain channel estimation errors, which are the cause of performance degradation. In this paper, we propose an iterative estimation technique for undesired signal power (noise, interference, and channel estimation error) for superposed multicarrier transmission. We use the estimated power of the undesired signal to calculate the LLR that takes the channel estimation error into account, since including this extra information about the channel improves the bit error rate (BER). The proposed scheme estimates the power of undesired signal on each subcarrier, and thus, the information about superposed band is not required. Simulation results show that the accuracy of estimating undesired signal becomes more reliable as the number of estimations increases, so that BER becomes better as a result of iterative estimation.
