A Monte Carlo implementation of the SAGE algorithm for joint soft-multiuser decoding channel parameter estimation and code acquisition Authors:Kocian, Alexander; Panayirci, Erdal; Poor, H. Vincent; Ruggieri, Marina
Publisher and Date:(2010)This paper presents an iterative scheme for joint timing acquisition multi-channel parameter estimation and multiuser soft-data decoding. As an example an asynchronous convolutionally coded direct-sequence code-division multiple-access system is considered. The proposed receiver is derived within the space-alternating generalized expectation-maximization framework implying that convergence in likelihood is guaranteed under appropriate conditions in contrast to many other iterative receiver ...
