In this paper, we demonstrate an FPGA accelerated design of the computationally efficient Symbol-Level Precoding (SLP) for high-throughput communication systems. The SLP technique recalculates optimal beam-forming vectors by solving a non-negative least squares (NNLS) problem per every set of transmitted symbols. It exploits the advantages of constructive inter-user interference to minimize the total transmitted power and increase service availability. The benefits of using SLP come with a substantially increased computational load at a gateway. The FPGA design enables the SLP technique to perform in realtime operation mode and provide a high symbol throughput for multiple receive terminals. We define the SLP technique in a closed-form algorithmic expression and translate it to Hardware Description Language (HDL) and build an optimized HDL core for an FPGA. We evaluate the FPGA resource occupation, which is required for high throughput multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems with sizeable dimensions. We describe the algorithmic code, the I/O ports mapping and the functional behavior of the HDL core. We deploy the IP core to an actual FPGA unit and benchmark the energy efficiency performance of SLP. The synthetic tests demonstrate a fair energy efficiency improvement of the proposed closed-form algorithm, also compared to the best results obtained through MATLAB numerical simulations. [less ▲]

This paper designs dynamic on-board signal processing schemes in a multiple gateway multibeam satellite system where full frequency reuse pattern is considered among the beams and feeds. In particular, we deploy on-board Joint Precoding, Feed selection and Signal switching mechanism (JPFS) so that the following advantages are realized, I) No need of Channel State Information (CSI) exchange among the gateways and satellite, since the performance of precoding is highly sensitive to the quality of CSI, II) In case one gateway fails, rerouting signals through other gateways can be applied without any extra signal processing, III) Properly selecting on-board feed/s to serve each user which generates maximum gain toward corresponding user, IV) Flexibly switching the signals received from the gateways to requested users where each user can dynamically request traffic from any gateway, and V) Multiple user with multiple traffic streams can be dynamically served at each beam. However, deploying such JPFS architecture imposes high complexity to the satellite payload. To tackle this issue, this study aims at deploying JPFS that can provide affordable complexity at the payload. In addition, while increasing the data demand imposes extensive bandwidth resources requirement in the feeder link, the proposed JPFS design works efficiently with available feeder link resources even if the data demand increases. The proposed design is evaluated with a close-to-real beam pattern and the latest broadband communication standard for satellite communications. [less ▲]

Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is one of the most promising IoT technology to support the massive machine-type communication (mMTC) scenarios of the fifth generation mobile communication (5G). While the aim of this technology is to provide global coverage to the low-cost IoT devices distributed all over the globe, the vital role of satellites to complement and extend the terrestrial IoT network in remote or under-served areas has been recognized. In the context of having the global IoT networks, low earth (LEO) orbits would be beneficial due to their smaller propagation signal loss, which for the low complexity, low power, and cheap IoT devices is of utmost importance to close the link-budget. However, while this would lessen the problem of large delay and signal loss in the geostationary (GEO) orbit, it would come up with increased Doppler effects. In this paper, we propose an uplink scheduling technique for a LEO satellite-based mMTC NB-IoT system, able to mitigate the level of the differential Doppler down to a value tolerable by the IoT devices. The performance of the proposed strategy is validated through numerical simulations and the achievable data rates of the considered scenario are shown, in order to emphasize the limitations of such systems coming from the presence of a satellite channel.

Beam-Hopping (BH) and precoding are two trending technologies for the satellite community. While BH enables flexibility to adapt the offered capacity to the heterogeneous demand, precoding aims at boosting the spectral efficiency. In this paper, we consider a high throughput satellite (HTS) system that employs BH in conjunction with precoding. In particular, we propose the concept of Cluster-Hopping (CH) that seamlessly combines the BH and precoding paradigms and utilizes their individual competencies. The cluster is defined as a set of adjacent beams that are simultaneously illuminated. In addition, we propose an efficient time-space illumination pattern design, where we determine the set of clusters that can be illuminated simultaneously at each hopping event along with the illumination duration. We model the CH time-space illumination pattern design as an integer programming problem which can be efficiently solved. Supporting results based on numerical simulations are provided which validate the effectiveness of the proposed CH concept and time-space illumination pattern design. [less ▲]

In this paper we consider three transmitter designs for symbol-level-precoding (SLP), a technique that mitigates multiuser interference (MUI) in multiuser systems by designing the transmitted signals using the Channel State Information and the information-bearing symbols. The considered systems tackle the high hardware complexity and power consumption of existing SLP techniques by reducing or completely eliminating fully digital Radio Frequency (RF) chains. The first proposed architecture referred as, Antenna Selection SLP, minimizes the MUI by activating a subset of the available antennas and thus, reducing the number of required RF chains to the number of active antennas. In the other two architectures, which we refer to as RF domain SLP, the processing happens entirely in the RF domain, thus eliminating the need for multiple fully digital RF chains altogether. Instead, analog phase shifters directly modulate the signals on the transmit antennas. The precoding design for all the considered cases is formulated as a constrained least squares problem and efficient algorithmic solutions are developed via the Coordinate Descent method. Simulations provide insights on the power efficiency of the proposed schemes and the improvements over the fully digital counterparts. [less ▲]

In this paper, we investigate resource allocation and relay selection in a dual-hop orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based multi-user network where amplify-and-forward (AF) enabled relays facilitate simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) to the end-users. In this context, we address an optimization problem to maximize the end-users’ sum-rate subjected to transmit power and harvested energy constraints. Furthermore, the problem is formulated for both time-switching (TS) and power-splitting (PS) SWIPT schemes.We aim at optimizing the users’ SWIPT splitting factors as well as sub-carrier–destination assignment, sub-carrier pairing, and relay–destination coupling metrics. This kind of joint evaluation is combinatorial in nature with non-linear structure involving mixed-integer programming. In this vein, we propose a sub-optimal low complex sequential resource distribution (SRD) method to solve the aforementioned problem. The performance of the proposed SRD technique is compared with a semi-random resource allocation and relay selection approach. Simulation results reveal the benefits of the proposed design under several parameter values with various operating conditions to illustrate the efficiency of SWIPT schemes for the proposed techniques.

We present a convex optimization based Symbol-Level Precoding (SLP) for sum power minimization and propose the low-latency closed-form algorithm to find a heuristic solution to the optimization problem. The technique exploits constructive interference at the multi-user MIMO systems and minimizes the sum power of the transmitted precoded signal per each symbol slot. As a result, the received signals gain extra Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), which leads to the improved data rate and energy efficiency. We benchmark the low-complexity algorithm for solving the optimization technique against the conventional Fast Non-Negative Least Squares algorithm (NNLS). The demonstrated design of the SLP technique combined with the proposed closed-form algorithm has low computational complexity and fast processing time, which is applicable in low-latency high-throughput satellite communication systems.
