Abstract

This paper describes Complementary Code Keying with Differential Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (CCK+DQPSK) modulation, as used, for example, in the IEEE802.11b standard, and Gaussian Freuqnecy Shift Keying (GFSK) modulation, as used, ofr example, in the the Bluetooth standard. It indicates how the different types of modulation schemes might be more efficiently integrated to produce a modem capable of working with either modulation scheme. The paper presents a novel Multi Mode integrated Modem architecture, making use of: 1) programmable soft circuits 2) adaptive switching 3) adaptive FIR configuration 4) adaptive FIR functionality (same FIR, different function, e.g. correlation/matched filtering) 5) extended look-up table functionality Results are presented, indicating the performance of the integrated modem. Finally, implementation issues are discussed together with a way forward for further work in this area.
