COMBINED BLIND EQUALIZATION AND CLASSIFICATION OF MULTIPLE SIGNALS

Abstract

A multiuser automatic modulation classifier (MAMC) is an important component of a multiantenna cognitive radio (CR) receiver that helps the radio to better utilize the spectrum. MAMC identifies the modulation schemes of multiple users in a frequency band simultaneously. A multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) blind equalizer is another important component of a multiantenna CR receiver that improves symbol detection performance by reducing inter symbol interference (ISI) and inter user interference (IUI). In a CR scenario, it is preferable to also consider the performance of the automatic modulation classifier (AMC) while designing the blind equalizer. In this paper we propose a MIMO blind equalizer that improves the performance of both multiuser symbol detection and cumulant based MAMC.
