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.

Abstract

In this paper the benefits of using a UMTS FDD physical layer compliant library for rapid prototyping and system modelling are presented. The paper also emphasises the use of this library for practical training. In order to illustrate these benefits three examples of common 3G structures and concepts are presented, implemented and studied: hybrid phase shift keying (HPSK) modulation; adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR) measurement; and a downlink reference measurement channel. A series of software simulation models associated with these examples are available for download from the world wide web.
