Differential Six-Port Transceiver Design and Analysis from a Wireless Communication System Perspective
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
In modern telecommunication there is the demand of high data rates using wideband component design. FCC has introduced the UWB spectrum for high speed data communication. UWB systems have attracted the attention of researchers. Six-port transmitters and receivers are strong candidates for UWB systems and research is being done on six-port modulators and demodulators. In this work an effort is made to compare the performance of conventional single-ended six-port transmitter and receiver with differential six-port transmitters and receivers.
In this thesis, single ended and differential six-port correlators are designed on 7.5 GHz using Agilent Inc. EDA tool ADS and their performance is evaluated. A new wide-band differential six-port correlator is implemented using rat-race couplers and double-sided parallel strip-line phase inverter.
The designed six-port correlators are used for 8-PSK modulation and demodulation. For transmitter-receiver system, mixed analog-DSP designing is used. The integral components of the system are evaluated individually and behavioral modeling is used to evaluate the complete transmitter-receiver system. The single-ended and differential systems are evaluated for noise-figure, dynamic range, bit error rate and data rate.
