dc.description.abstract A multiple-antenna-multiple-equalizer (MAME) system is proposed for overcoming cochannel interference (CCI) in code-division multiple access (CDMA) indoor wireless systems. The main advantage of the MAME system is the enhanced interference suppression capability as compared with many existing approaches. Thus, the use of the MAME system can lead to an increase in the capacity of the CDMA system. In the MAME system, a fractionally-spaced equalizer (FSE) is used to process the signal at each antenna. The number of antennas or the tap spacing of the FSEs is not fixed and inherent flexibility is available to the designer. In particular, CDMA indoor wireless systems are best suited to use the interference suppression capabilities of the MAME system. It is shown that spectral correlation present in user signals is the reason for the interference suppression capability of the MAME system. Moreover, the MAME system is interpreted as a dual-domain diversity combiner. Spatial and bandwidth-domain diversity are used and the relative importance of the diversity domains is discussed. These discussions offer new insights into the interference suppression capabilities of the MAME system and give a clear picture of its workings. Extensive simulation results are presented to illustrate the performance of the MAME system under various conditions. Optimal or minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) results are first presented to illustrate the superior interference suppression performance. The effects of the number of antennas, tap spacing, receive filtering, spectral correlation, diversity domains, and near-far conditions on performance are examined and results obtained support the arguments presented earlier in the thesis. The FSEs in the MAME system are implemented as adaptive filters and the mean-squared- error (MSE) performance is investigated. A quasi-Newton (QN) algorithm is recommended over other adaptive filtering algorithms because of ill-conditioning of the autocorrelation matrix in the MAME system. Simulation results confirm the superior convergence performance of the QN algorithm. Decision-directed equalization is also investigated and bit-error rate (BER) results presented illustrate that the gains in the MMSE performance will most likely translate into gains in BER performance. The BER performance in near-far and birth of interferers conditions illustrate that the MAME system is a promising solution to counter these problems. The thesis concludes with an indoor wireless strategy based on the MAME system which offers the following advantages: 1. More users than the processing gain of the CDMA system can share the same bandwidth. 2. No information about code sequences is needed at the receiver. 3. Simple code sequence allocation schemes can be used at the transmitter. 4. Variable numbers of users can be accommodated. 5. Simple power control and error-correction coding schemes can be used. en_US
