Homework 03 due on May 21, 2013 (Please hand in your homework in the office H3513, H3504 or H3502 before 4 pm.) Note: Homework points are only valid in the same semester, they do not carry over to the next. If you are taking the exam one semester later you cannot get homework bonus points. 1. (10p) Perform a baseband Rayleigh fading simulation (M ATLAB). The AWGN samples (nI (t), nQ (t), t = 1..10000) for the I (inphase) and Q (quadrature) branch are lowpass filtered by the Doppler filter. This introduces some intersample correlation by restricting the maximum rate of change at the filter outputs (aI (t), aQ (t)). (a) (2p) Generate the AWGN samples nI (t) and nQ (t). (b) (2p) The Doppler filter can be modeled as an IIR filter. Use the following coefficients:

and filter nI (t) and nQ (t) separately using M ATLABs filter function. (c) (3p) Plot the phase (linear) and the magnitude (logarithmic) of the fading simulation. √ a(t) = (aI (t))2 + (aQ (t))2 and α(t) = arctan aQ (t) , aI (t)

where aI (t) and aQ (t) are the output samples of the Doppler filter. (d) (3p) Plot a histogram of the amplitudes a(t) and phases α(t) using 100 bins (quantization values). What do the distributions look like? 2. (12p) A very important step in the development of future mobile communication systems is the test of various algorithms under realistic conditions. Since building prototypes and testing them

You can find an outline for the script in the “homework3. the focus is on stochastic channel models. (a) (4p) Write a Matlab script that implements a stochastic channel model following the steps described above.m the main file which provides you with an outline dopplerfilter. in a computer the time (t) and delay time (τ ) are not continuous but sampled. • Stochastic channel models: For this type of channel model. In order to do so we require realistic channels that can represent all types of propagation conditions that are relevant. τ .zip” which you can download at our website. t) in time direction with an ∫∞ t ⃝ appropriate filter g (t). This task requires a suitable channel model. Our goal will be to implement a simple channel model that can generate random channels following a certain power delay profile as well as a certain Doppler power spectrum. This is a computationally very demanding task and quickly becomes infeasible for larger scenarios. One option is to use measured channels but this is not always feasible. t) can be divided into the following steps: − Generate random samples w(τ. Therefore given √ a desired delay power spectrum φh (τ ) the normalized channel is given by h(τ. such that the delay power spectrum specifications. the actual electromagnetic propagation phenomena are ignored. In there you will find: channelmodel.g. the real world is too expensive. Rayleigh. For example. i. − Introduce correlation in time by filtering the sequence w(τ.g. t) = w(τ. t − t1 ) · g (t1 )dt1 (use filter). It also requires very precise knowledge about all interacting objects which is often unavailable.e. In this task. IlmProp is a hybrid channel model: It includes geometrical information through a ray-based propagation model but the scattering coefficients are modeled as random numbers.. delay power spectrum). 2 .g. f . fD . It is described by appropriate characterizations such as amplitude distributions (e. fit the variance of the channel for a certain delay time τ to the desired variance.. the channel is treated as a random process.mat a file to load to get the filter coefficients makeaxis. t). The generation of a random channel h(τ. h1 (τ. Of course. Rice) and are independent identically distributed.e. so that the amplitude distribution is Rayleigh and the phase distribution is uniform (as in the previous homework). • Hybrid channel models: These represent a mixture of both. path loss.. The variance after the ∫ follows the 1 2 2 second step is σh (τ ) = limT →∞ T T |h1 (τ. Therefore the automatic generation of mobile radio channels is a very important task in communications research. t) = φh ( τ ) 2 (τ ) σh · h1 (τ.
