Adaptive Minimum-BER Linear Multiuser Detection for DS-CDMA Signals in Multipath Channels

Chen, S., Samingan, A.K., Mulgrew, B. and Hanzo, L. (2001) Adaptive Minimum-BER Linear Multiuser Detection for DS-CDMA Signals in Multipath Channels IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, 49, (6), pp. 1240-1247.

Record type: Article


The problem of constructing adaptive minimum bit error rate (MBER) linear multiuser detectors is considered for direct-sequence code division multiple access (DS-CDMA) signals transmitted through multipath channels. Based on the approach of kernel density estimation for approximating the bit error rate (BER) from training data, a least mean squares (LMS) style stochastic gradient adaptive algorithm is developed for training linear multiuser detectors. Computer simulation is used to study the convergence speed and steady-state BER misadjustment of this adaptive MBER linear multiuser detector, and the results show that it outperforms an existing LMS-style adaptive MBER algorithm first presented at Globecom'98 by Yeh, Lopes and Barry.
