**IEEE 802.11n PHY Motorola HT Partial Proposal**Alexandre Ribeiro Dias, Stéphanie Rouquette-Léveil, Markus Muck, Marc de Courville, Jean-Noël Patillon, Sébastien Simoens, Karine Gosse, Keith Blankenship, Brian Classon Motorola Labs**Overview**• Overall goal and key features of proposal • Turbo Codes • Multiple-Antenna schemes • OFDM modulator and data rates • Preamble definitions • Simulation results • Hardware complexity estimation**Overall goal of the proposed PHY design**Modification of IEEE 802.11a-1999 PHY in order to provide new OFDM PHY modes meeting the IEEE802.11n PAR with: • High spectrum efficiency for achieving target performance with increased data rates • Data streams transmitted in parallel using multi-antenna transceivers • Optimized multi-carrier modulation with lower overhead • Enhanced forward error correction schemes • Improved link budget for lower to medium data rates • Providing the IEEE802.11a PHY data rates with increased range/link quality • Adapted to the support of services requiring small packet size such as VoIP • Exploit multi-antenna capabilities for robust transmission modes • Turn gains in spectral efficiency into link budget advantages • Favored short term implementation and deployment with robust, low complexity techniques • Open-loop multi-antenna solutions: simple, robust and without protocol overhead (feedback signalization) • Improve operation in limited Outdoor environments with support of long channel impulse responses**Key features (1/2)**• Multi-antenna extension: • MIMO with at least 2Tx/2Rx antennas scaling up to 4Tx • Support for asymmetric antenna configurations to accomodate various classes of devices • Open-loop modulation technique • Second OFDM modulator (optional): • 2 bandwidths supported: 20MHz and 40MHz • Optionally 128 carriers in 20/40MHz with 104 data carriers, and guard interval of 32 samples • 8% PHY rate increase for 20MHz mode • 117% PHY rate increase for 40MHz mode vs 20MHz/64-carriers • Turbo Codes: Increase roubustness**Key features (2/2)**• New nPLCP preambles for MIMO support(same for 64- and 128-point IFFT/FFT) • High order modulation (optional): 256-QAM • Space/frequency interleaver • Compatibility to legacy systems: • IEEE 802.11a convolutional code with code rates 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 5/6**Turbo Codes: Motivation**• Stable, well-understood technology • Good performance • Block size and code rate flexibility • Padding can be used to reduce number of interleavers • Puncturing patterns simple to describe and implement • Incremental redundancy procedures easily defined • Highly parallelizable “parallel window” decoder architecture • Easily scaled to meet latency requirements • Motorola 2048-bit information block implementation benchmark of 10ms per iteration on 2001-era FPGA scales to 1.25ms per iteration on current technology ASIC with clock rate increase and window size decrease • Interleavers can be parallelized to avoid memory contentions without performance penalty • Known intellectual property landscape**Coding Functional Description**• Scrambling before padding insertion • Before decoding, receiver may insert large LLRs at known locations • Padding • Inserts minimum number of zeros to make block size multiple of 512 bits • Zeros are inserted uniformly across the SERVICE+PSDU at the ends of 256-bit sub-blocks • Turbo interleaver maps padding to odd-numbered positions in second encoder • Segmentation • Breaks padded sequence into 2048-bit segments plus at most one segment of length 512, 1024, or 1536 bits**Turbo Encoder**• Rate-1/3 3G turbo code polynomials • Code rates 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, and 5/6 can be achieved exactly through puncturing • Contention-free turbo interleavers • Performance nearly identical to WCDMA down to 10-4 frame error rates • Constituent encoders left unterminated • Helps preserve exact code rate • Negligible performance degradation**Contention-Free Interleavers**• Inter-window shuffle (IWS) interleaver i = output position p(i) = input position r() = bit reversal intra-window permutation (same for all windows) j(j) = {j0(j),j1(j),,jM-1(j)} = j-th permutation of {0,1,,M-1} (periodic) M = number of windows (2,4,6,8 for block size 512,1024,1536,2048, resp.)**Non-Termination Performance**• 8-th iteration static binary channel FER with IWS interleavers (no tail compared with full 12-bit tail) • Non-termination helps preserve exact code rate with negligible performance impact 512-bit block 2048-bit block**Padding Removal**• To preserve code rate, all padding bits and associated parity bits (i.e., on same trellis step) are removed prior to puncturing removed padding**Multi-antenna aspects of the proposal**• Transmission of 1, 2 or 3 parallel streams using: • Space-Time Block Coding (STBC), Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) or robust hybrid solutions (STBC/SDM) • optimize the rate vs link budget trade-off • 2, 3 or 4 transmit antennas • The number of receive antennas determines the maximum number of spatial streams that can be transmitted. • The capability of decoding 2 parallel data streams is mandatory • all the devices have to be able to decode all the modes where the number of spatial streams is lower or equal than the number of receive antennas in the device. • It is required for a device to exploit all its antennas in transmission even for optional modes. • 2 or more receive antennas • With STBC or STBC/SDM, asymmetric antenna configurations can be supported • Importance of configurations in which NTx≠ NRx • NTx > NRx e.g. between AP and mobile handset (in DL) • NTx < NRx e.g. between MT and AP (UL), or if MT have upgraded multi-antenna capabilities compared to AP (infrastructure upgrade cost)**Asymmetric Modes for a robust hybrid solution**2 transmit antenna schemes proposed 3 transmit antenna schemes proposed 4 transmit antenna schemes proposed**OFDM modulation**• 1st OFDM modulation based on IEEE802.11a parameters: • 48 data subcarriers, 64-point IFFT/FFT, 20MHz Bandwidth • 180Mbps maximum PHY rate (120Mbps mandatory) • 2nd OFDM modulation (optional extension): • 104 data subcarriers, 128-point IFFT/FFT, 8 pilots, 20MHz Bandwidth 195Mbps maximum PHY rate • 3rd OFDM modulation (optional extension): • 128-point IFFT/FFT, 40MHz Bandwidth • 104 data subcarriers, 8 pilots • Guard interval duration: 0.8s • 234Mbps
