Average PER performance metrics of iterative successive interference cancellation
Rights accessOpen Access
The average packet error rate (PER) and user-PER profiles of iterative successive interference cancellation (I-SIC) are analyzed for a proof-of-concept scenario where asymptotically many code-division-multiple-access users share the same channel encoder. To characterize the iterative decoding receiver, we propose a novel multivariate PER function evaluated over the consecutive signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratios (SINRs) experienced by each undecoded user. Analytic expressions for the user-energy and user-SINR profiles at every iteration are derived via warping operators on the user ordering that relate the asymptotic distribution of undecoded users at different iterations. Monte Carlo simulations using a chip-level I-SIC implementation assess the accuracy of the proposed user-limit analysis.
