Executable specification design and simulation of OFDM based communication system
The communication system using the OFDM principle is today one of the most important application in communication field. This system has various applications from broadband to 3G and digital TV to Radio LANs. This master’s thesis project deals with the implementation of certain specification, algorithmic exploration for WVAN (wireless video area network) in Simulink®. The implemented model and its specification is the reference for the hardware designing and verification. The model used in OFDM based QPSK/16-QAM modulated communication system for the WHD WVAN standard at the High Rate Physical (HRP) layer. This thesis project describes the functionality of the various communication blocks and the method of data transmission through these blocks. The main purpose of this model is to calculate the BER (Bit Error Rate). The final design which supports the different HRP mode for different code rate and different Modulation scheme can take different length of sub-packets which depends on the HRP mode of Transmission. This model also implements the radix-2 FFT algorithm for fixed point FFT processor. Since the FFT processor cannot be used standalone, so in this thesis it is employed in an OFDM Transmitter and Receiver. The goal of this report is to outline the knowledge gained during the master’s thesis project, to describe a design methodology for the OFDM based communication system for high throughput and best error protection. The functionality of each block of the communication system is written in „C‟ code and the output data of each block of Simulink Model is compared to 'C' code written output for the same input.
