10 Radioelektronika 200510 Classification of signals and methods of spreading spectrum § Any spread spectrum signal belongs to one of the three categories: §signals without a carrier §signals with a single carrier §signals with multiple carriers

11 Radioelektronika 200511 Signals without carrier  are created by a sequence of very narrow pulses (< 1ns) of a proper shape ( Gaussian, wavelets) §their spectrum bandwidth is by some orders of magnitude wider than the modulation rate. Such signals are often referred to as Ultra Wide-Band (UWB) signals (and related UWB systems). Their bandwidth B≥500 MHz, B/f 0 ≥ 0.2 §it can reach bandwidth > 5 GHz

12 Radioelektronika 200512 Single carrier signals §Harmonic carrier spread spectrum (SS) signals §three basic subgroups l Direct Sequence (DS) – spreading by BPSK, QPSK keying l Frequency Hopping (FH) l Time Hopping (TH) - slow (SFH) - fast (FFH)

20 Radioelektronika 200520 Optimization of linear receiver §Matched filter (MF) – correlator Its response MF impulse response is defined by the signal to which MF is matched - MF[s(t)] MF response at t=t 0 =T to finite signal s(t) whose interval of nonzero values is (0,T),is

22 Radioelektronika 200522 Interferences §Response of MF[s(t)] to interfering signal s 1  Correlation coef. §Orthogonal signals do not cause any interference §Correlation in time domain – frequency domain §Parseval’s formula Orthogonal signals have orthogonal spectra

23 Radioelektronika 200523 Code synchronization §Code synchronization is an alignment of the spreading modulation of received signal and the replica at the multiplier producing despreaded signal §It consists of two steps l Acquisition – coarse alignment of the modulation and the replica l Tracking – accurate alignment and time- variations tracking

24 Radioelektronika 200524 DS Code acquisition with the aid of a system of correlators - Matched filters Uncertainty region – the interval of prospective alignments. The position is nonsensitive to shifts by an integer multiple of the spreading signal period (modulo L.T c ) The goal (penalty) function of code acquisition process optimization Mean acquisition time – minimization Probability of acquisition within given time interval – max Code acquisition process is defined by acquisition detector rule by search strategy - a sequence of points defining the replica positions within an uncertainty region Classification according to changes of replica position l Stepping correlator l Sliding correlator

25 Radioelektronika 200525 Classification of DS code acquisition detectors as to the number of channels l Single channel detector – for serial search on uncertainty region l Multiple channel detector – for parallel / serio- parallel search as to the realization of each channel of the detector l Passive correlator - multiplier/integrator l Active correlator - Matched Filter (DSP, SAW) as to the rule of the final decision making l Single dwell detector l Multiple dwell detector

33 Radioelektronika 200533 Interferences §Orthogonal signals do not cause interferences (orthogonality is not generally invariant to mutual shift of signals) §Nonorthogonal (correlated) signals cause interference §Interference is proportional to amplitude of interfering signal §This amplitude can be greater than the amplitude of useful (target) signal = near-far effect Efekt nestejných vzdáleností (efekt nestejných amplitud)

39 Radioelektronika 200539 Code Division Multiple Access Signal space - dimensionality 2BT = number of mutually orthogonal signals

40 Radioelektronika 200540 Synchronous and Asynchronous CDMA

41 Radioelektronika 200541 CDMA signal §Signal at detector input signature where b i (t) is data signal of the i-th user, is its delay and s i (t) is its spreading modulation, which in CDMA is labeled to as a signature. Usually, signature has unit energy ( a system of orthogonal signatures is in the same time orthonormal). As c i 2 (t)=1, the unit energy signature s i (t) is preserved if

42 Radioelektronika 200542 Synchronous CDMA §CDMA is synchronous, iff Then Without loss of generality let it be This signal causes response y m of MF matched to the signature of m-th user MUI

43 Radioelektronika 200543 The second component of the right side of the equation represents Multiuser Interference (MUI / MAI) This component is zero if the signatures at the detector input are ortogonal. If system designer is not able ensure validity of this condition (it is the usual case as parameters of channel are unknown and time variable) Detector minimizing MUI is not MF any more; it is more complex, usually nonlinear. To keep the complexity of receiver acceptably low, suboptimum linear detectors are used. Multiuser interference (MUI)

44 Radioelektronika 200544 Multiuser detection §Vector notation §Matrix of amplitudes and correlation matrix Detector estimates vector of data Optimum detector is described by the equation Vector y can now be expressed as

45 Radioelektronika 200545 It can be expressed using likelihood where and Averaging over random variable b k is not performed. For a priori equiprobable symbols the above average is Optimum receiver is nonlinear.

46 Radioelektronika 200546 Using vector notation it is where Approximation of the optimum detector - linear detectors Linear detector consists of the bank of filters matched to the signatures of individual users and weighted sum of their outputs is created. Weights in summation are chosen in a way minimizing MUI or noise plus MUI, respectively. Linear detectors

48 Radioelektronika 200548 Conventional detector This detector is optimum in the case of uncorrelated signatures, i.e. if If signatures are correlated, MAI is nonzero. Conventional detector – bank of MFs

49 Radioelektronika 200549 Decorrelating detector §Matrix M is the inverse to correlation matrix R Then and k-th component of the detector output is MUI component is totally compensated but noise component has increased. but noise component has increased.

50 Radioelektronika 200550 MMSE detector It minimizes men square error of the vector b estimate. We search for the matrix M minimizing this error where the norm of vector is defined as After some manipulation

51 Radioelektronika 200551 We expand After substitution y it can be rearranged to the shape where Minimum MSE is reached for Decision rule of MMSE detector is MMSE detector
