= —50.76 dBW Problem 8.2 The antenna gain and free—space loss at 12 GHz can be calculated by simply adding 2010g10(12/4)
for the values calculated in Problem 8.1 for downlink frequency 4 GHz. Speciﬁcally, we have: (a) Free—space loss: 88 + 2010g10(3)
= 97.54 dB (b) Power gain of each antenna
= 36.24 + 2010g10(3) = 45.78 dB
(0) Received power = —50.76 dBW
The important points to note from the solutions to Problems 8.1 and 8.3 are: 1. Increasing the operating frequency produces a corresponding increase in free-space loss, and an
equal increase in the power gain of each antenna. 2. The net result is that, in theory, the received power remains unchanged. 436 Problem 8.3 The Friis free—space equation is given by A. 2

4nd In both Eqs. (1) and (2) the dependent variable is the received signal power, but the
independent variables are different. (c) Equation (1) is the appropriate choice for calculating Pr performance when the dimensions of both the transmitting and receiving antennas are already ﬁxed. Equation (1) states that for
ﬁxed size antennas, the received power increases as the wavelength is decreased. Equation (2) is the appropriate choice when both At and G, are ﬁxed and the requirement is to determine the required value of the average transmitted power Pt in order to realize a speciﬁed

Lfree space 2 (T According to the above formulation for free space loss, free space loss is frequency dependent. Path loss, as characterized in this formulation, is a deﬁnition based on the use of an isotropic

A : EIRP[Lfree—space (1) Equation (1) states the power received by an isotropic antenna is equal to the effective transmitth
power EIRP, reduced only by the path loss. However, when the receiving antenna is not isotropic,
the received power is modiﬁed by the receiving antenna gain 0,, that is, Eq. (1) is multiplied by Gr
Problem 8.5 In a satellite communication system, satellite power is limited by the permissible antenna size.
Accordingly, a sensible design strategy is to have the path loss on the downlink smaller than the pass loss on the uplink. Recognizing the inverse dependence of path loss on the wavelength A, it
follows that we should have )‘uplink < A'downlink or, equivalently, fuplink >fdownlink 438 Problem 8.6 Received power in dBW is deﬁned by Pr=EIRP + Gr—Free-space loss
For these three components, we have
(1) EIRP = 1010g10(P,G,) = 1010g10Pt + 1010g10(G,) = 1010g10(0.1)+1010g10(G,) Transmit antenna gain (in dB): lOlogloGt = 1010g10( (3/40)2 = 30.89 dB (2) Receive antenna gain: lOloglOGr = 1010g10[ (3/40)2 = 49.84 dB (3) Free-space loss: 4xan

communication system is essentially downlink—limited. Recognizing that we have more powerful
resources available at an earth station then at a satellite, it would seem reasonable that the BER at
the satellite can be made practically zero by transmitting enough signal power along the uplink. Problem 8.11 For the downlink, the relationship between E

N N req (£0) = (—E—bo) + lOlogM+1010gR (1)

given system, we ﬁnally get Dmin = 0.6 meters Problem 8.12 (a) Similarities between satellite and wireless communications: - They are both bandwidth-limited. - They both rely on multiple-access techniques for their operation. ° They both have uplink and downlink data transmissions. ' The performance of both systems is inﬂuenced by intersymbol interference
and external interference signals. 445 (b) Major differences between satellite and wireless communications: ' Multipath fading and user mobility are characteristic features of wireless
communications, which have no counterparts in satellite communications. - The carrier frequency for satellite communications is in the gigahertz range
(Ku—band), whereas in satellite communications it is in the megahertz range. ' Satellite communication systems provide broad area coverage, whereas wireless
communications provide local coverage with provision for mobility
in a cellular type of layout. Problem 8.13 In a wireless communication system, transmit power is limited at the mobile unit, whereas no
such limitation exists at the base station. A sensible design strategy is to make the path loss (i.e.,
free-space loss) on the downlink as small as possible, which, in turn, suggests that we make (Path 1055)uplink < (Path loss)downlink
Recognizing that path loss is inversely proportional to wavelength, it follows that )‘uplink > A downlink or, equivalently, fuplink <fdownlink Problem 8.14 The phase difference between the direct and reﬂected waves can be expressed as wetlrhbzhmﬁl— raw where K is the wave length.

and (2) variations inthe delay difference 12-11. Problem 8.16 The multipath inﬂuence on a communication system is usually described in terms of two effects -
selective fading and intersymbol interference. In a Rake receiver, selective fading is mitigated by
detecting the echo signals individually, using a correlation method, and adding them algebraically
(with the same sign) rather than vectorially, and intersymbol interference is dealt with by reinseiting different delays into the various detected echoes so that they fall into step again. Making each correlator perform at its assigned value of delay can be done by inserting the right
amount of delay in either the reference (called the delayed-reference) or received signals (called
the delayed-signal). Independent of the form of the reference signals employed, the output SNR
from the integrating ﬁlters is substantially the same for both conﬁgurations, under the assumption that the length of the delay Td is signiﬁcantly smaller than the symbol duration T. Each integrating
ﬁlter responds to signals only within about il/T of the frequency f. Therefore, the noises adding 448 shorter than T, regardless of the form of reference signal. The only difference between the tap
circuit contributions of the delayed-signal scheme and those of the delayed—reference scheme is
that the latter are staggered in time by various fractions of Td, and since such staggering is small compared to the signiﬁcant ﬂuctuation period of the contributions, we conclude that the noise
outputs of the two conﬁgurations are equivalent. However, there are three practical advantages of the delayed—signal scheme over the delayed—
reference scheme. First, one delay line instead of two is required. Second, in the latter conﬁguration. corresponding taps in the mark (symbol 0) and space (symbol 1) lines would have
to be adjusted and be kept in phase coincidence. Third, coherent intersymbol interference (eliminated in the delayed-signal scheme) is still present in the latter scheme, (Price and Green
1958), see the Bibliography.

the average signal power at the antenna array input. Conversely, we may say that the average
signal power at the array input is proportional to the speed of response of the weights in the LMS algorithm. Moreover, the maximum speed of response of the LMS weights is
proportional to Rb/fmax, where Rb is the bit rate and fmax is the maximum fade rate in Hz. It follows therefore that the dynamic range of the average signal power at the antenna array
input is proportional to Rb/fmax, as shown by max watts (1;) max where CC is the proportionality constant. (b) For CL = 0.2, Rb = 32 x 103 b/s, andfmax = 70 Hz, the use of Eq. (1) yields Pmax = 0.2 x 32 x 103/70 = 640/7

which is somewhat limited in value. Problem 8.21 (a) According to the Wiener ﬁlter, derived for the case of complex data, the optimum weight

where Rx = correlation matrix of the input signal vector x[n] = E[x[n]xH[n]] (2) rxd = cross—correlation vector between X[n] and desired response d[n] = E[x[n]d*[n]] (3) wo = optimum weight vector. 454 Note that the formulation of Eq. (1) is based on the premise that the array output is deﬁned as the inner product wa[n]. The Wiener ﬁlter for real data is a special case of Eq. (1), where the
Hermitian transpose H in Eq. (2) is replaced by ordinary transposition and the complex conjugation in Eq. (3) is omitted. Assuming that the input x[n] and desired response d[n] are
jointly ergodic, we may use the following estimates for Rx and rxd: K

estimate of the optimum weight vector wo is computed as A_[ w = Rx rm (6) —1 . .
where Rx is the inverse of Rx. (b) The DMI algorithm for computing the estimate W may now proceed as follows: 1. Collect K snapshots of data denoted by {X[k], d[kl }f=. where K is sufﬁciently large for w to approach wo and yet small enough to ensure
stationarity of the data. 2. Use Eqs. (4) and (5) to compute the correlation estimates ﬁx and 1"“.
3. Invert the correlation matrix Rx and then use Eq. (6) to compute the weight estimate w. For an antenna array consisting of M elements, the matrix ﬁx is an M—by—M matrix and f‘xd is an M—by—l vector. Therefore, the inversion of ﬁx and its multiplication by EM requires multiplications and additions on the order of M3. 455 ...
