The objective of the signal synchronization is to properly align the received signal by correctly estimating the random delay

Time

Synchronization ?

Introduction

- Code synchronization (TH code; DS code):
- To enable the lower BER of data demodulation, the template signal should be aligned with the received signal, the code alignment is so-called “code synchronization” process.

- Code synchronization can be spilt into two parts
- Code acquisition
- It is a coarse code acquisition, to resolve the code phase error within certain range.

- Code tracking
- It is a fine tuning process, to guarantee the timing error below an acceptable level.

- Code acquisition

- Acquisition strategy: The search for acquisition is based on the auto-correlation properties of the applied the codes, the auto-correlation is high if the receiver is synchronized and low in other situations [5].
- MAX criterion (Maximum selective):
- TC criterion (Threshold Crossing):
- MAX/TC criterion:

Data

Sequence for synchronization

- Before any data can be received in an UWB communication, the receiver must synchronize on the transmission.
- Receiver structures
- Noise template signal
- Reference template signal

- Packet data
- Synchronization on (known) code
- Reception and processing data

Data can have specific coding-> communication can not be tapped

Code synchronization

- Find the best fit between the code and the received signal

Typical acquisition system

- The receiver’s reference signal generator will shift and guess the code boundary of received signal, and the AWGN noise will effect the performance.

- Why use RAKE receiver?
- More than one hypothesized phase can be considered as an estimated timing delay for a coarse acquisition

Definition of ‘Hit set’

- Hit set definition:
- The definition of ‘Hit set’ is a critical issue . When the threshold setting is low, the noise effect on the false alarm probability will increase. Oppositely, when the threshold setting is high, the mean acquisition time will increase.

- Ex: The periodicity of TH code =4, frame duration , that is Nh=128, Tc = 1 nsec, normalized pulse energy =1,CM1(noise free),
search space = 512 cells, Th=2, EGC receiver (20 fingers)

Search strategies , that is Nh=128, Tc = 1 nsec, normalized pulse energy =1,CM1(noise free),

- What is the efficient search algorithm?
- Serial or Parallel

- Typical serial search algorithms [1]
- Linear Search (LS)
- Random Permutation Search (RPS)
- Bit Reversal Search (BRS)

- Ideal mean stopping time:

- Bit Reversal Search , that is Nh=128, Tc = 1 nsec, normalized pulse energy =1,CM1(noise free),
- The search algorithm is described by assuming that N is a power of 2.
- The order of search positions in the bit reversal search
algorithm is decided by “bit reversing”

- For example: Let the integer of N is equal to 8 (2^3)

Search locations for N = 23

- The periodicity of TH code is equal to the number of pulses per symbol
- Hybrid TH/DS signal

- The hybrid TH/DS signal format method not only speeds up the code acquisition, but also improves the interference to other co-existing systems [7].

- Non consecutive search (NCS) criterion:
- The non consecutive search strategy is proposed owing to more than one HIT phase in multi-path channel models.
- The non consecutive search can achieve a rapid acquisition by testing search locations with a step size D which is greater than one cell.
- The cells in total search space are so called uncertainty region that can be divided into blocks
- This will reduce the search time required to acquire the location of hit set from an initial search cell, but it could also increase the miss probability.

LI-NCS (Linear Increasing NCS) pure time hopping sequences and hybrid TH/DS signals

- In order to avoid the miss search, we propose a linear increasing NCS (LI-NCS) approach.
- The search equation can be expressed as
- The LI-NCS approach can be described as following:
- Set initial loop =1, and check blocks. The number of test cells are
- If the correlation output of each block in this loop is lower than threshold, then go to the step (3). If the correlation output of one block in this loop is higher than threshold. then the search procedure is DONE.
- Set loop = loop + 1, and also check blocks, the number of cells are
, then go to step (2)

Fine Acquisition Procedure: H=8, b) divided into 8 blocks, each block with D = 6

- Step1:The terminating point of coarse acquisition process is the starting point of fine acquisition.
- Step2: The new search window in fine acquisition process is equal to the double Hit set size.
- Step3: The fine acquisition process searches both right and left directions from the starting pointof fine acquisition with one branch correlator to acquire the strongest path. The search range of each direction is equal to the size of hit set.
- Step4: Weutilize the maximum selective criterion to select the strongest path amplitude
- Step5: Finally, the fine acquisition process passes the parameter on to the second stage.

Conclusions lengths of in UWB channel model (CM1), as a function of interfering users (N

- The mean stopping time of two-stage acquisition scheme is simulated and it is evident to see that the two-stage acquisition scheme outperforms the conventional one stage acquisition scheme.
- By simulation results, we can see that the “Joint Search Algorithms” have lower mean stopping time.
- We propose a two-step approach which is composed of coarse step and fine step to achieve a fine code acquisition in first stage.
- Adding more users to the systems is investigated by computer simulations.
