Digital Transmitter for Mobile Communications
In this project you get the chance to develop and test a transmitter for a 3G mobile communications system. The IIS is currently working on a receiver for TD-HSPA, a 3G standard emerging from China. In order to complete the transceiver a high-speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) transmitter will be realized in VHDL during this thesis. The transmitter takes the raw data and takes care of putting it in a TD-HSPA compliant frame structure, applies the error correction coding and rate-matching and finally maps the digital '0's and '1's to physical I/Q symbols which can then be forwarded to an analog transceiver.
The goal of this project is to design the digital transmitter and implement it either as an ASIC or on a FPGA board, depending on your preferences. In case of a design project, the final transmitter can then be taped out, manufactured and finally measured during the VLSI III lecture.
