This paper investigates the application of pipelined recurrent neural networks (PRNN's) to the narrow-band interference (NBI) suppression over spread-spectrum (SS) code-division multiple-access (CDMA) channels in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) plus non-Gaussian observation noise. Optimal detectors and receivers for such channels are no longer linear. A PRNN that consists of a number of simpler small-scale recurrent neural network (RNN) modules with less computational

Once the prediction of the NBI signal is obtained, a resulting signal is computed by subtracting the estimate from the received signal. Thus, the effect of the NBI can be reduced. Moreover, since those modules of a PRNN can be performed simultaneously in a pipelined parallelism fashion, this would lead to a significant improvement in its total computational efficiency. Simulation results show that PRNN-based NBI rejection provides a superior signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement relative to the conventional adaptive nonlinear approximate conditional mean (ACM) filters, especially when the channel statistics and exact number of CDMA users are not known to those receivers.
