Concepts of Multimedia Processing and Transmission

IT 481, Lecture #12

Dennis McCaughey, Ph.D.

23 April, 2007


Broadcast Network Schematic

  • SFN: All transmitters operate on a single Radio Frequency (RF)

  • MFN: Each transmitter operates on a different frequency

Frequency Usage Schematic

Terrestrial Drivers

  • Terrestrial broadcasts are omnidirectional

  • Multiple copies of the same signal may arrive at the receiver with slightly different delays and thus interfere with each other

    • Multipath = (direct path signal + reflected signal + refracted signal)

    • Intersymbol Interference (ISI)

    • Limits the bit rate that may be achieved

Operation

  • The OFDM modulator consists of the block in the diagram that is labeled 'IDFT', which stands for inverse discrete Fourier transform.

    • In reality, the actual process carried out is the inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT), because the IFFT is, as the name suggest, a fast way to calculate the IDFT.

  • The IDFT calculates the following equation:

COFDM Receiver Showing Constellation Mapping

IT 481, Fall 2006


Operation

  • The signals are received at the antenna,

  • The signals are I/Q down-converted from RF to generate the real (I) and imaginary (Q) streams,

  • Low-pass filtered (LPF) and digitized in the analogue to digital converters (ADC, one ADC for each stream).

  • Following the ADC, the cyclic prefix is stripped off and the remaining sampled values are serial to parallel converted and once there is a full block of samples

  • The DFT is calculated (in reality the FFT is calculated as the FFT requires far fewer multiplications to be carried out than the DFT).

Symbol Generation

IT 481, Fall 2006


Example

  • N = 5 bits are mapped into 1symbol of duration Ts

  • Each symbol bit is modulated onto a different carrier frequency using on-off keying (OOK)

  • Carriers are DC, fs, 2fs, 3fs, 4fs

    • fs = 1/Ts

  • Bits Per Carrier

    BPSK = 1

    QPSK = 2 (4QAM)

    16QAM = 4

    64QAM = 8

  • Bits Per Symbol

  • BPSK = N

  • QPSK = 2N

  • 16QAM = 4N

  • 64QAM = 8N

QPSK and QAM Constellations

IT 481, Fall 2006


QPSK Bit Rates

IT 481, Fall 2006


Receiver Operation

  • Receiver waits a short period of time called the guard interval, Tg, before starting to process the received symbol

    • Ensure receipt of all delayed versions of the direct path signal

  • Processing entails

    • Determining which of the N= 5 carriers are received

    • Demodulating the subcarrier modulated symbols to recover the bits (QPSK, 16QAM etc)

IT 481, Fall 2006


Why Orthogonality?

  • If the subcarriers are orthogonal they do not interfere with each other

    • Simplifies the construction and recovery of the bit-symbol-bit stream sequence

  • If the subcarriers are cleverly spaced this orthogonality is preserved in the presence of multipath

  • Orthogonality is implemented by spacing the subcarriers at multiples of 1/Ts

IT 481, Fall 2006


What is Orthogonality?

  • Two signals x and y are orthogonal if:

  • If the two signals do not overlap in either time or frequency they are orthogonal

  • However the important case here is when they do.

IT 481, Fall 2006


Need to define two functions

Useful Properties

Achieving Orthogonality

  • Fourier Transform Pairs

Frequency Domain Symbol

Guard Interval avoids intersymbol interference

It lowers the maximum encoded bit rate

Typically Tg = Ts/4

For MFM networks

For SFN networks

Guard Interval

Example

  • Since a FFT and IFFT are used the nearest powers of 2 are:

  • 2048 (1705)

  • 8192 (6817)
