We consider two experiments: (1) modeling and undoing the effect of carrier phase mismatch between the receiver LO and the incoming carrier, (2) modeling the effect of a wireless multipath channel. 2 Equipment Matlab is available in the workstations in the software lab. 3 Experiment 1: Modeling Carrier Phase Uncertainty Consider a pair of independently modulated signals, u c ( t ) = ∑ N n =1 b c [ n ] p ( t − n ) and u s ( t ) = ∑ N n =1 b s [ n ] p ( t − n ), where the symbols b c [ n ] , b s [ n ] are chosen with equal probability to be +1 and -1, and p ( t ) = I [0 , 1] ( t ) is a rectangular pulse. Let N = 100. (1.1) Use Matlab to plot a typical realization of u c ( t ) and u s ( t ) over 10 symbols. Make sure you sample fast enough for the plot to look reasonably “nice.” (1.2) Upconvert the baseband waveform u c ( t ) to get u p, 1 ( t ) = u c ( t )cos 40 πt This is a so-called binary phase shift keyed (BPSK) signal, since the changes in phase due to the changes in the signs of the transmitted symbols. Plot the passband signal u p, 1 ( t ) over four symbols. (1.3) Now, add in the Q component to obtain the passband signal u p ( t ) = u c ( t )cos 40 πt − u s ( t )sin40 πt Plot the resulting Quaternary Phase Shift Keyed (QPSK) signal u p ( t ) over four symbols. (1.4) Downconvert u p ( t ) by passing 2 u p ( t )cos(40 πt + θ ) and 2 u p ( t )sin(40 πt + θ ) through crude lowpass filters with impulse response h ( t ) = I [0 , . 25] ( t ). Denote the resulting I and Q components 1 by v c ( t ) and v s ( t ), respectively. Plot v c and v s for θ = 0 over 10 symbols. How do they compare to u c and u s ? Can you read off the corresponding bits b c [ n ] and b s [ n ] from eyeballing the plots for v c and v s ? (1.5) Plot v c and v s for θ = π/ 4. How do they compare to u c and u s ? Can you read off the corresponding bits b c [ n ] and b s [ n ] from eyeballing the plots for v c and v s ?...
