MIMO-OFDM-based DVB-H systems: a hardware design for a PAPR reduction technique
Digital video broadcasting - handheld (DVB-H) is the technology driving mobile TV, which uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with multiple-input multiple-output technology (MIMO). These mobile communication systems have a promising future of supporting high data rate transmissions for both video and data. However, since the OFDM systems are sensitive to the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) problem, this work proposes a new technique (novel technique to reduce the PAPR based on turbo coding (NTRPT)), based on the turbo encoding technology, to reduce the PAPR effects for MIMO-OFDM-based DVB-H systems. This technique has been implemented and validated in hardware. It can support different types of modulation and coding techniques, and offers better results in reducing the PAPR than the conventional techniques currently proposed for this purpose, such as the clipping technique and the partial transmit sequence (PTS) technique, presented here using computer simulations.
