A Dirty-paper Coding Scheme for the Cognitive Radio Channel Conference Paper uri icon


  • We implement a dirty-paper coded framework for the cognitive radio channel.We assume that the cognitive user has non-causal knowledge about the primary user's transmissions. Thus the secondary receiver can employ dirty-paper coding to counter the effect of any interference from the primary user. In addition, we consider a situation where the introduction of the cognitive user should not affect the performance of the primary system - nor should the primary system have to change its encoding/decoding process. For the primary user we use a low-density parity-check code and a 4-ary pulse amplitude modulation format. For the cognitive user, we propose a dirtypaper coding scheme which employs trellis-coded quantization as the source code and an irregular repeat-accumulate code as the channel code. At a transmission rate of 1.0 bits/sample, the designed dirty-paper coding scheme operates within 1.23 dB of the theoretical limit. 2010 IEEE.
