Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

A digital channel sounder has been built to perform measurements of radio channels targeted for 3G and 802.1 la operating at 2 and 5 GHz. The novel aspect of the architecture used is that a completely digital wideband modulator and demodulator has been built to allow extensive use of digital signal processing. Such an architecture results in an instrument with significant flexibility, short measurement durations, a rapid update rate and the ability to automatically acquire time and frequency lock.
