802 15 4a introduction
802.15.4a: Introduction Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The IEEE 802.15 Low Rate Alternative PHY Task Group (TG4a) for Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) has defined a project for an amendment to 802.15.4 for an alternative PHY

  • The main interest is in providing communications and high-precision ranging/localization capability (1 meter accuracy), high aggregate throughput; as well as adding scalability to data rates, longer range, and lower power consumption and cost

  • These additional capabilities over the existing 802.15.4 standard are expected to enable significant new applications and market opportunities

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


802 15 4a short history
802.15.4a: Short History Area Networks (WPANs)

  • 802.15.4a became an official TG in March 2004 (committee work tracing back to November 2002)

  • The committee is actively drafting an alternate PHY specification for the applications identified

  • In March 2005, the baseline specification was selected (without enacting down-selection procedures)  baseline with 100% approval

  • The baseline is two optional PHYs consisting of:

    • UWB Impulse Radio (operating in unlicensed UWB spectrum)

    • Chirp Spread Spectrum (operating in unlicensed 2.4GHz spectrum)

  • The UWB Impulse Radio will be able to deliver communications and high precision ranging

Modulation

Modulation Area Networks (WPANs)

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Baseline modulation
Baseline Modulation Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Simple, scalable modulation format

  • One mandatory mode plus one or more optional modulation modes

  • Modulation compatible with multiple coherent/non-coherent receiver schemes  Flexibility for system designer

  • Time hopping (TH) to achieve multiple access

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Modulation format
Modulation Format Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The UWB-PHY is required to support both coherent and non-coherent receivers

  • The modulation format is a combination of Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) and Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK)

  • A UWB PHY symbol is capable of carrying two bits of information: one bit is used to determine the position of a burst of pulses while an additional bit is used to modulate the phase (polarity) of this same burst

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Chip rate
Chip Rate Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The UWB-PHY uses an IR-based signaling scheme in which each information-bearing symbol is represented by a sequence/burst of short time duration pluses

  • The duration of an individual pulse is nominally considered to be the length of a chip

  • Chip duration is equal to 2.02429 ns or a chipping rate of 494MHz

Spreading

Spreading Area Networks (WPANs)

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Spreading1
Spreading Area Networks (WPANs)

  • In addition to the data modulation, the UWB-PHY symbol provides for some multi-user access interference rejection in the form of TH

  • Each symbol contains a single burst of pulses and the burst length is typically much shorter than the duration of the symbol

  • The location of the pulse within each burst can be varied on a symbol-to-symbol basis according to a TH code

  • This is part of the functionality provided by the “Scrambler and Burst Position Hopping”

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Scrambling
Scrambling Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The constituent pulses in each burst are scrambled by applying a time varying scrambling sequence

  • This scrambler is a pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) defined by a polynomial generator.

  • The polynomial generator, g(D), for the pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) generator is g(D) = 1 + D14 + D15, where D is a single bit delay element.

  • The polynomial not only forms a maximal length sequence, but is also a primitive polynomial. Using this generator polynomial, the corresponding PRBS, sj, is generated as

    where “” denotes modulo-2 addition

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Scrambler
Scrambler Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Scrambler linear feedback shift register:

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Time hopping
Time Hopping Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The hopping sequence is derived from the same linear feedback shift registers by using the output of the first three registers

  • When each symbol, x(k)(t), is generated, the spreader is run for Nburst cycles  the Nburstconsecutive outputs of the spreader are the spreading sequence for the symbol (sj, j = 1,2, …, Nburst)

  • The current hopping position, h(k) is determined by the following equation:

  • The state variables are sampled at the start of the transmission of the current modulation symbol

FEC Area Networks (WPANs)

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


FEC Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The FEC used by the UWB PHY is a concatenated code consiting of an outer Reed-Solomon (RS) systematic block code and an inner systematic convolutional code

  • No interleaver is required

  • The outer RS code is a RS6(K+8,K) over Galois field GF(26)

  • The systematic Reed Solomon code uses the generator polynomial:

    where a= 010000 is a root of the binary primitive polynomial 1+x+x6 in GF(26)

  • Both RS encoding with default codeword operation (K = 55) and shortened codeword operation are required

Uwb phy symbol
UWB-PHY Symbol Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The UWB-PHY supports two average Pulse Repetition Frequencies (PRF):

    • HPRF=15.4375MHz

    • LPRF=3.859375MHz

  • These PRFs in addition to the data rate, modulation and coding rate determines the overall timing of a UWB-PHY symbol

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Pulse shaping
Pulse Shaping Area Networks (WPANs)

  • The reference pulse, r(t), used by the UWB-PHY is a root raised cosine pulse with roll-off factor of = 0.6

  • Mathematically this is:

  • In order for a UWB-PHY transmitter to be compliant with the standard, the transmitted pulse must have a cross- correlation with r(t) that is greater or equal to 0.7 (-3dB)

Gian Mario Maggio (ST)


Optional wafeforms
Optional Wafeforms Area Networks (WPANs)

Weighted linear pulses combination
Weighted Linear Pulses-Combination Area Networks (WPANs)

  • This optional pulse shape is the sum of N weighted and delayed “fundamental” pulses, p(t):

  • The number of pulses N is set to a fixed value of 4 (although some of the weights may be set to zero)

  • The values of the pulse delays shall be limited

  • Features:

    • Adaptive determination of weight and delay

    • Adaptive spectral shaping

CS Pulse (2/2) Area Networks (WPANs)

  • Main features:

    • SOP support: CS filtering provides additional anti-interference ability (additionally larger SIR) w.r.t. DS

      Interference scenarios:

      CS CS: Piconets with different CS filtering can reduce the interference against each other

      DS  CS: Piconet with CS filtering can reduce the interference from DS-only piconets

      CS  DS: DS-only piconet receivers smaller interference from piconets with CS filtering
