    Improving a Power Line Communications Standard with LDPC Codes

    We investigate a power line communications (PLC) scheme that could be used to enhance the HomePlug 1.0 standard, specifically its ROBO mode which provides modest throughput for the worst case PLC channel. The ...

    LDPC Code Design for Nonuniform Power-Line Channels

    We investigate low-density parity-check code design for discrete multitone channels over power lines. Discrete multitone channels are well modeled as nonuniform channels, that is, different bits experience var...

    Analysis and Design of Timing Recovery Schemes for DMT Systems over Indoor Power-Line Channels

    Discrete multitone (DMT) modulation is a suitable technique to cope with main impairments of broadband indoor power-line channels: spectral selectivity and cyclic time variations. Due to the high-density const...

    Fast Burst Synchronization for Power Line Communication Systems

    Fast burst synchronization is an important requirement in asynchronous communication networks, where devices transmit short data packets in an unscheduled fashion. Such a synchronization is typically achieved ...
