  • Patent number: 8498365
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for detecting temporary high level impairments, such as noise or interference, for example, in a communications channel, and subsequently, mitigating the deleterious effects of the dynamic impairments. In one embodiment, the method not only performs dynamic characterization of channel fidelity against impairments, but also uses this dynamic characterization of the channel fidelity to adapt the receiver processing and to affect an improvement in the performance of the receiver. For example, in this embodiment, the method increases the accuracy of the estimation of the transmitted information, or similarly, increases the probability of making the correct estimates of the transmitted information, even in the presence of temporary severe levels of impairment. The channel fidelity history may also be stored and catalogued for use in, for example, future optimization of the transmit waveform.

  • Publication number: 20070268871
    Abstract: Carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation from preamble symbols. Any communication receiver may be adapted to perform the CFO estimation. The CFO estimation is performed using a low complexity, high accuracy CFO estimation method. The operation may be described as follows: each element of a received sequence is divided by the corresponding preamble element, the resulting sequence is divided into N subgroups, and each subgroup is then averaged. The phase differential of the resulting sequence is computed, averaged, and used to compute an estimate of the carrier frequency offset. This approach to performing CFO estimation is of relatively high estimation accuracy and of relatively low computational complexity.

  • Publication number: 20070230649
    Abstract: A communication device constructed according to the present invention detects impulse noise in a preamble sequence. In detecting impulse noise in the preamble sequence the communication device first receive a preamble sequence that includes a plurality of preamble symbols. The communication device then divides the plurality of preamble symbols by at least one known preamble symbol to produce a plurality of preamble gains and/or a plurality of preamble phases corresponding to the plurality of preamble symbols. Finally, the communication device determines, based upon the plurality of preamble gains and/or the plurality of preamble phases, that at least one preamble symbol has been adversely affected by a impulse noise. The communication device may discard at least one preamble symbol that has been adversely affected by impulse noise from the plurality of preamble symbols.

  • Publication number: 20070201590
    Abstract: A filter settings generation operation includes sampling a communication channel to produce a sampled signal. The sampled signal is spectrally characterized across a frequency band of interest to produce a spectral characterization of the sampled signal. This spectral characterization may not include a signal of interest. The spectral characterization is then modified to produce a modified spectral characterization. Filter settings are then generated based upon the modified spectral characterization. Finally, the communication channel is filtered using the filter settings when the signal of interest is present on the communication channel. In modifying the spectral characterization, pluralities of spectral characteristics of the spectral characterization are independently modified to produce the modified spectral characterization. Modifications to the spectral characterization may be performed in the frequency domain and/or the time domain.

  • Publication number: 20070061642
    Abstract: A system and method are used to provide uncorrelated code hopping in a communications system. A multi-bit linear shift register receives data and clocks the data fifteen times. A word assembler receives the shifted data and outputs a fifteen bit word. A mixer mixes the fifteen bit word with an numerical value of active codes to generate a mixed signal. A divider divides the mixed signal to produce a divided signal. A truncator truncates the divided signal to its seven most significant bits to produce a pseudo random hop number. A code matrix shifter circularly shifts the active codes in a code matrix based on the pseudo random hop number to produce a circularly shifted code. A transmitter transmits the circularly shifted code matrix.

  • Publication number: 20070058759
    Abstract: A receiver includes a filter stage that receives, filters, and equalizes a received signal, and a decisional feedback loop coupled to the filter stage that receives and processes a signal output from the filter stage using remodulation. The decisional feedback loop includes a converter that generates a baseband signal, a detector that generates a decision signal, a restorative signal generator that generates a restorative signal using remodulation, and a carrier loop that generates a frequency correction signal and provides a frequency-offset estimate. The restorative signal and the frequency correction signal are provided to the converter to compensate for inter-symbol interference. The presented “remodulation” technique decouples interaction between the carrier loop, the pre-filters, and the equalizer of the restorative signal generator, providing an architecture that is more stable and significantly faster than conventional architectures.

  • Publication number: 20070053470
    Abstract: Iterative data-aided carrier CFO estimation for CDMA systems. Any communication receiver may be adapted to perform the iterative data-aided carrier CFO estimation. The iterative data-aided carrier CFO estimation is performed using a high accuracy method. The operation may be described as follows: a received signal is despread and buffered. Using the received preamble sequence, an initial estimate of the CFO is obtained. This estimate is used to correct the whole despread data. The corrected data using the initial CFO estimate is sliced. Each despread data symbol is divided by the corresponding sliced data decision. The obtained sequence is then averaged across different codes to obtain a less noisy sequence, which is then used to estimate the CFO again. The procedure can be repeated (iterated) to obtain a more accurate carrier frequency offset estimate; the number of times in which the procedure is repeated may be programmable or predetermined.

  • Publication number: 20060274778
    Abstract: A system for detecting collisions in a shared communications medium, such as a TDMA medium, includes a receive path adapted to generate a first intermediate signal, a second intermediate signal, and a data symbol sequence from an input signal. A preamble detection module generates a correlation metric from the first intermediate signal. A power measurement module generates a power indication signal from the second intermediate signal. A noise measurement module generates a noise indication signal from the second intermediate signal and the data symbol sequence. A processing module is adapted to characterize the input signal as a collision for certain values of correlation metric, power indication signal, and noise indication signal.

  • Publication number: 20050047489
    Abstract: A system for mitigating impairment in a communication system includes a delay block, a signal level block, a moving average window block, an impulse noise detection block, and a combiner. The delay block receives and delays each chip of a plurality of chips in a spreading interval. The signal level block determines a signal level of each chip of the plurality of chips in the spreading interval. The moving average window block determines a composite signal level for a chip window corresponding to the chip. The impulse noise detection block receives the signal level, receives the composite signal level, and produces an erasure indication for each chip of the plurality of chips of the corresponding chip window. The combiner erases chips of the plurality of chips of the spreading interval based upon the erasure indication.
