Sammanfattning

We investigate the effect of symbol spreading on the performance of ultrawideband systems based on multiband OFDM. Ultrawideband channels offer the possibility of very high frequency diversity, as the used bandwidth is much larger than the coherence bandwidth of the channel. In multiband-OFDM, frequency diversity stems from (i) forward error correction coding, which distributes the symbols associated with one bit among different tones, and (ii) interleaving, which distributes the symbols among different employed frequency bands. We show that for weak (rate 3/4) error correcting codes, the achieved diversity order is insufficient. However, the use of Walsh-Hadamard spreading gives additional diversity within each frequency band and greatly improves the performance. Furthermore, we propose a novel scheme for grouping OFDM tones before the spreading is performed. This grouping gives additional flexibility in the system design.
