EM-based iterative receiver design with carrier-frequency offset estimation for MIMO OFDM systems Academic Article uri icon


  • In this letter, we study the design of expectation-maximization (EM)-based iterative receivers for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency-division multi-plexing systems with the presence of carrier-frequency offset (CFO). Motivated by the spirit of maximum-likelihood estimation in the EM algorithm, we first present a pilot-aided CFO estimation scheme that allows fast Fourier transform-based fast implementation. Then this CFO estimation is incorporated into the initialization step of the iterative receiver. Experimental results show the effectiveness of our receiver design in combating CFO. 2005 IEEE.
