Image Number 9 for United States Patent #7668076.
A multi-user receiving apparatus is provided for achieving a reduction in the amount of processing for single-carrier FDMA signals and an improvement in reception characteristics. A DFT unit converts single-carrier FDMA received signals of all users to signals in a frequency domain commonly. A demapping unit selects part of sub-carriers for each user from sub-carriers supplied from the DFT unit. A reception filter separates a user signal and suppresses noise. A demodulator demodulates the user signal, and detects a timing thereof.
