Joint Transmitter-Receiver Optimization in the Downlink CDMA Systems


To maximize the downlink code-division multiple access (CDMA) system capacity, we propose to minimize the total transmitted power of the system subject to users′ signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) requirements via designing optimum transmitter sequences and utilizing linear optimum receivers (minimum mean square error (MMSE) receiver). In our work on joint transmitter-receiver design for the downlink CDMA systems with multiple antennas and multipath channels, we develop several optimization algorithms by considering various system constraints and prove their convergence. We empirically observed that under the optimization algorithm with no constraint on the system, the optimum receiver structure matches the received transmitter sequences. A simulation study is performed to see how the different practical system constraints penalize the system with respect to the optimum algorithm with no constraint on the system.
