Abstract
Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) modulated filter banks (FBs) are considered as strong tools used to implement both dynamic spectrum access and spectrum sensing in cognitive radio (CR) systems. High time-frequency (TF) resolution for spectral estimation and effective spectrum access with low complexity transceivers are the basic objectives in CR systems. However, the limitations of self-interference in DFT FBs as well as a primary user interference increase the overall transceiver complexity. In this paper, we design DFT modulated FBs which take into account the aforementioned contradicting requirements of high resolution capabilities, efficient spectrum access and affordable implementation effort for an additive white Gaussian channel. Four simple designs are presented and their performance are investigated and compared for a CR system with basic transmission parameters resembling those of IEEE 802.11g.
