A Message-Passing Receiver for BICM-OFDM over Unknown Clustered-Sparse Channels
We propose a factor-graph-based approach to joint channel-estimationand-decoding of bit-interleaved coded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (BICM-OFDM). In contrast to existing designs, ours is capable of exploiting not only sparsity in sampled channel taps but also clustering among the large taps, behaviors which are known to manifest at larger communication bandwidths. In order to exploit these channel-tap structures, we adopt a two-state Gaussian mixture prior in conjunction with a Markov model on the hidden state. For loopy belief propagation, we exploit a “generalized approximate message passing” algorithm recently developed in the context of compressed sensing, and show that it can be successfully coupled with soft-input soft-output decoding, as well as hidden Markov inference. For N subcarriers and M bits per subcarrier (and any channel length L < N), our scheme has a computational complexity of only O(N log2 N+N2M ). Numerical experiments using IEEE 802.15.4a c...
