Abstract

A technique for obtaining outer-loop control of the target SIR for cloud-loop fast transmit power control (TPC) is presented for turbo-coded wideband DS-CDMA (W-CDMA) mobile radio systems. The frame error rate (FER) of an intermediate decoding output in the turbo-decoder, i.e. before the final iteration stage is reached, is measured to control the target SIR. The bit error rate (BER) after the final decoding iteration can be maintained accurately at the prescribed BER value, e.g. BER = 10-6, without losing the tracking ability in the presence of slowly changing propagation channel conditions. Computer simulation results supporting this ability are reported.
