Description

This application is a parent of a continuing reissue application filed on Apr. 16, 2003 assigned Ser. No. 10/414,203, and is a reissue of U.S. Pat. No. 5,712,869 issued Jan. 27, 1998.

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application makes reference to, incorporates the same herein, and claims all benefits accruing under 35 U.S.C. §119 from an application for Data Transmitter And Receiver Of A Spread Spectrum Communication System Using a Pilot Channel earlier filed in the Korean Industrial Property Office on 22 Nov. 1994 and assigned Ser. No. 30743/1994.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Technical Field

The present invention relates to a spread spectrum communication system, and more particularly to data transmitter and receiver of the spread spectrum communication system using a pilot channel.

2. Background Art

Conventionally, narrow band modulation systems (such as for example, amplitude modulation, frequency modulation and phase shift key modulation) have been used in the field of data communication. With such systems, demodulation at the receiver can be achieved with a relatively small amount of circuitry. Such systems, however, are weak due to multipath fading and narrow band noise.

By contrast, in spread spectrum communication systems, a data spectrum is spread by a pseudo-noise code (hereinafter “PN code”) at a transmitting side, while the pseudo noise code and the data are synchronized at a receiving side to that the adverse effects of multipath fading and narrow band noise can be reduced. Accordingly, spread spectrum communication systems have attracted increased attention as a promising technique for radio frequency transmission of binary data.

One example for such a spread spectrum communication system is disclosed in U.S. Pat. No. 5,400,359 entitled Spread Spectrum Communication System and An Apparatus For Communication Utilizing This System issued to Hikoso et al. on 21 Mar. 1995. In Hikoso et al. '359, a pseudo noise code is generated and multiplied by data to generate a multiplied result which is then subjected to binary phase-shift key (BPSK) modulation, although other phase-shift key modulation such as, for example, differential phase-shift key modulation (DPSK) may also be used. The pseudo noise code is also subjected to BPSK modulation, delayed by at least one chip of the pseudo noise code, combined with a modulated signal, converted into a radio requency (RF) signal, and transmitted from an antenna. The transmitted spread spectrum signal is received at a receiving end where a complementary receiving method is provided. In essence, the spread spectrum communication involves the art of expanding the bandwidth of a signal, transmitting the expanded signal, and recovering the desired signal by remapping the received spread spectrum into the original information bandwidth. The purpose of spread spectrum techniques is to allow the system to deliver error-free information in a noisy signal environment.

In such a spread spectrum communication system however, since the spectrum of the information signal is spread by a PN code having a broader spectrum width, i order to correctly restore the information signal, it is necessary to synchronize the demodulation PN code which is generated at the receiving side with the modulation PN code which is generated at the transmitting side. Proper phase synchronization may be achieved when the received spread spectrum signal is accurately timed in both its spreading PN code pattern position and its rate of chip generation. The phase synchronization process is typically accomplished in two stages, i.e., an initial synchronization process for finding a synchronous phase and a process for tracking the detected phase. In these conventional spread spectrum receivers, however, initial synchronization and synchronization tracking are often achieved through costly and complex circuitry. Moreover, we have observed that it is difficult to adjust synchronization of the PN code at the receiving side, as the modulated PN code and not pure PN code is transmitted at the transmitting side. Consequently, the time required to establish initial synchronization has not effectively improved.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Accordingly, it is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a novel and improved spread spectrum communication system utilizing a pilot signal for establishing initial system synchronization.

A more complete appreciation of the present invention, and many of the attendant advantages thereof, will become readily apparent as the same becomes better understood by reference to the following detailed description when considered in conjunction with the accompanying drawings in which like reference symbols indicate the same or similar components, wherein:

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

Referring now to the drawings and particularly to FIG. 1, which illustrates a typical transmitter in a spread spectrum communication system using a conventional differential phase-shift keying (DPSK) modulation technique. The transmitter includes a DPSK encoder 102 for differential-modulating input baseband data; a PN code generator 103 for generating a PN code sequence; a band spreader 104 for band spreading the differentially modulated data by multi-plying the differentially modulated data by the PN code sequence; a finite impulse response (hereinafter referred to as an “FIR”) filter 105 connected to the band spreader 104, for filtering the band spreaded data; a D/A converter 106 and a LPF 107 serially connected to the FIR filter 105, for converting the band spreaded data into an analog signal and low-pass filtering the analog signal; and a mixer 109 for multiplying the output of the LPF 107 by a carrier signal cosWct for propagation to free space through a bandpass filter (hereinafter referred to as an “BPF”) 110, an amplifier 111 and an antenna 112.

The advantage of employing a conventional DPSK modulation technique to modulate the baseband data is that the spread spectrum communication system is enabled to asynchronously detect the modulated data transmitted from a transmitting side during the data demodulation at a receiving side. In this DPSK modulation spread spectrum communication system, however, we have discovered that bit error tends to propagate during the demodulation stage. For example, one bit error during the demodulation stage may result in a two bit error. Consequently, this error propagation deteriorates the overall system performance. Moreover, we have observed that it is difficult to adjust the PN code synchronization at a receiving side, as the modulated PN code and not pure PN code is transmitted at a transmitting side. Consequently, the time required to establish initial synchronization has not effectively improved.

As a result, the present invention envisions a spread spectrum communication system in which the PN code synchronization can be achieved with the pure PN code received at a receiving side in order to minimize the PN code acquisition time and the bit error rates. The spread spectrum communication system according to the present invention contemplates upon a pilot channel in addition to a data channel, in which pure, unmodulated PN code can be transmitted therein for acquisition or tracking purposed at a receiving side. The signal to be transmitted in a spread spectrum communication system utilizing a pilot channel according to the present invention may be largely divided into a pilot signal and data. The data is an information signal, and the pilot signal representing a binary bit of “1” is an additional information signal used for establishing initial PN code synchronization at a receiving side. According to the present invention, the pilot channel and the data channel are separated by a Walsh code sequence.

In the spread spectrum communication system utilizing the pilot channel according to the present invention, as the baseband data and the pilot signal are simultaneously transmitted, the synchronous demodulation of the baseband data can be performed by the pilot signal. Moreover, as the pilot signal to be transmitted at a transmitting side is always “1”, the I channel and Q channel PN codes in a pilot channel are pure, unmodulated PN codes. Thus, the PN code synchronization can be established at a receiving side by the pure, unmodulated PN codes.

TurningTurn now to FIG. 2 which illustrates FIGS. 2 and 2A that illustrate a data transmitter of the spread spectrum communication system utilizing the pilot channel as constructed according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 2FIGS. 2 and 2A, the data transmitter includes a first pilot Walsh code generator 203 and a first traffic Walsh code generator 206 for generating a first and a second Walsh codes, respectively using Walsh functions represented by a set of orthogonal binary sequences that can be easily generated by means well known in the art. Therefore, a Walsh code is generally called an “orthogonal code”. A first multiplier 202 modulates a pilot signal according to the first Walsh code generated from the pilot Walsh code generator 203 in order to generate a Walsh-modulated pilot signal. A second multiplier 205 modulates baseband data to be transmitted according to the second Walsh code generated from the traffic Walsh code generator 206 in order to generate Walsh-modulated data.

As in-phase (I) channel PN code generator 207 generates an I channel PN code, and a quadrature-phase (Q) channel PN code generator 208 generates a Q channel PN code. A third multiplier 209 multiplies the Walsh-modulated pilot signal according to the I channel PN code in order to generate an I channel band spreaded spread pilot signal. A fourth multiplier 210 multiplies the Walsh-modulated pilot signal according to the Q channel PN code in order to generate a Q channel band spreaded spread pilot signal. A fifth multiplier 211 multiplies the Walsh-modulated data according to the I channel PN code in order to generate I channel band spreaded spread data. A sixth multiplier 212 multiplies the Q channel PN code by a predetermined value “−1” in order to generate an inverted −Q channel PN code. A seventh multiplier 214 multiplies the Walsh-modulated data according to the −O channel PN code in order to generate −Q channel band spreaded spread data.

A first FIR filter 215 finite impulse response filters the output of the third multiplier 209. A second FIR filter 216 finite impulse response filters the output of the fourth multiplier 210. A third FIR filter 217 finite impulse response filters the output of the seventh multiplier 214. A fourth FIR filter 218 finite impulse response filters the output of the fifth multiplier 211. The first, second, third, and fourth FIR filters are used to reduce the peaks of the power spectrum density of the transmitted signal and to conceal the transmitted signal from the noise in the communication channel.

A first added 219 combines the output signal of the first FIR filter 215 with the output signal of the third FIR filter 217. A second adder 220 combines the output signal of the second FIR filter 216 with the output signal of the fourth FIR filter 218. A first D/A converter 221 converts the output of the first added 219 into an analog signal. A second D/A converter 222 converts the output of the second adder 220 into an analog signal.

First and second LPFs 223 and 224 respectively low-pass filter the outputs of the first and second D/A converter 221 and 222. An eighth multiplier 225 multiplies the output of the first LPF 223 for an I channel with an in-phase component cosWIFt of an intermediate-frequency. A ninth multiplier 228 multiplies the output of the second LPF 224 for a Q channel with a quadrature-phase component sinWIFt of the intermediate frequency. A third adder 229 combines the output of the eighth multiplier 225 with the output of the ninth multiplier 228. A tenth multiplier 230 multiplies the output of the third adder 229 by a carrier signal cosWRFt. A first BPF 232 band-pass filters the output of the tenth multiplier 230. An amplifier 233 amplifies the band-pass filtered signal in accordance with a predetermined amplification ratio in order to generate a spread spectrum signal to be transmitted via an antenna 234.

As described above, the first input signal is multiplied by the first spreading code signal to produce a first output signal, the first input signal is multiplied by an inverted code of the second spreading code signal to produce a third output signal, the first input signal is multiplied by the first spreading code signal to produce a fourth output signal, the first output signal is added to the third output signal, and then the second output signal is added to the fourth output signal, so that the above spreaded spectrum circuit of the communication system could effectively reduce a value of PAR that should be inevitably taken into account upon design of a power amplifier.

The overall operation of this spread spectrum circuit will be substantially similar to that of a spreading circuit in which a second spreading code signal is directly multiplied by a second input signal to therefrom produce a third output signal and the third output signal is subtracted from the first input signal. The above spread spectrum circuit is often referred to in the art as a “complex spreader”.

Further, the spread spectrum circuit preferably includes a construction to receive a signal “−1” in the sixth multiplier 212 for inverting the second spreading code signal.

According to the spread spectrum circuit of the present invention, PAR can be effectively reduced as it allows a phase only of an input signal to be revolved to a phase of PN code, without making any changes to a magnitude of the input signal. Hence, it is appreciated that when PN code is used for a signal spreading circuit as described above, a phase of the PN code does not affect a magnitude of an input signal, thereby keeping the original magnitude of input signal as it was and decreasing PAR of the output signals.

FIG. 3 illustrates a data receiver of the spread spectrum communication system utilizing the pilot channel as constructed according to the preferred embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 3, the data receiver includes a low noise amplifier (LNA) 302 serving as a high frequency amplifier for amplifying a spread spectrum signal received from an antenna 301. A second BPF 303 band-pass filters the amplified spread spectrum signal. An eleventh multiplier 304 multiplies the band-pass filtered signal with a carrier signal cosWRFt in order to generate an intermediate frequency signal. A twelfth multiplier 306 multiplies the output signal of the eleventh multiplier 304 with an in-phase component cosWIFt of the intermediate frequency. A thirteenth multiplier 308 multiplies the output signal of the eleventh multiplier 304 with a quadrature-phase component sinWIFt of the intermediate frequency.

Third and fourth LPFs 310 and 311 low-pass filter the output signals of the twelfth and thirteenth multipliers 306 and 308. First and second A/D converters 312 and 313 respectively convert the low-pass filtered signals into digital signals. An I channel and Q channel PN code generator 314 generates I channel and Q channel PN codes in response to a predetermined PN clock.

A first despreader 315 in a form of a multiplier, multiplies the output signal of the first A/D converter 312 according to the I channel and Q channel PN codes in order to generate a despreaded I channel signal I(t). A second despreader 316 in a form of a multiplier, multiplies the output signal of the second A/D converter 313 according to the I channel and Q channel PN codes in order to generate a despreaded Q channel signal Q(t). A second pilot Walsh code generator 317 generates a first Walsh code according to a first set of Walsh code functions. A second traffic Walsh code generator 318 generates a second Walsh code according to a second set of Walsh code functions. The first and second Walsh codes used in the receiver are identical to the Walsh codes used in the transmitter as shown in FIG. 2.

A fourteenth multiplier 319 multiplies the despreaded I channel signal I(t) according to the first Walsh code in order to generate a Walsh-demodulated I channel signal I(t). A fifteenth multiplier 320 multiplies the despreaded Q channel signal Q(t) according to the first Walsh code in order to generate a Walsh-demodulated Q channel signal Q(t). An initial sync and sync detector 321 receives the Walsh-demodulated signals I(t) and Q(t) output from the fourteenth and fifteenth multipliers 319 and 320, detects the PN code synchronization state of the Walsh-demodulated signals I(t) and Q(t) in order to generate a synchronization detection signal in correspondence with the PN code synchronization state.

A PN clock controller 322 outputs a clock control signal corresponding to the synchronization detection signal, A PN clock generator 323 generates the PN clock for controlling the generation of the I channel and Q channel PN codes in response to the clock control signal. A sixteenth multiplier 24 multiplies the Q channel signal Q(t) output from the second despreaded 316 according to the first Walsh code. A seventeenth multiplier 325 multiplies the I channel signal I(t) output from the first despreader 315 according to the first Walsh code. An eighteenth multiplier 326 multiplies the Q channel signal Q(t) output from the second despreader 316 according to the second Walsh code. A nineteenth multiplier 327 multiplies the I channel signal I(t) output from the first despreaded 315 according to the second Walsh code.

First, second, third, and fourth accumulator and dump circuits 328, 329, 330, 331 respectively accumulate the output signals of the sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth multipliers 324 and 327 for a predetermined symbol duration. A twentieth multiplier 332 multiplies the output signal of the second accumulator and dump circuit 329 with the output signal of the third accumulator and dump circuit 330. A twenty-first multiplier 333 multiplies the output signal of the first accumulator and dump circuit 328 with the output signal of the fourth accumulator and dump circuit 331. A subtracter 334 subtracts the output signal of the twenty-first multiplier 333 from the output signal of the twentieth multiplier 332. A decider 335 detects the phase of data from the output signal of the subtracter 334 in order to generate demodulated data.

The operation of the data transmitter and receiver of the spread spectrum communication system utilizing the pilot channel according to the preferred embodiment of the present invention will now be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 2, 2A and 3.

In the spread spectrum communication system utilizing the pilot channel according to the present invention, the transmitted signal is comprised of the pilot signal and baseband data as previously described. The pilot signal component forms I channel signal component, and the traffic data component forms Q channel signal component.

The pilot signal and the baseband data are respectively multiplied in accordance with the outputs of the pilot and traffic Walsh code generators 203 and 206 at the first and second multipliers 202 and 205, respectively. Each output of the first and second multipliers 202 and 205 is separated into the I and Q channels. That is, the output of the first multiplier 202 is multiplied according to the I channel PN code generated from the I channel PN code generator 207 at the third multiplier 209, and according to the Q channel PN code generated from the Q channel PN code generator 208 at the fourth multiplier 210. Similarly, the output of the second multiplier 205 is multiplied according to the I channel PN code generated from the I channel PN code generator 207 at the fifth multiplier 211, according to the −Q channel PN code generated from the Q channel PN code generator 208 by way of the sixth multiplier 212 at the seventh multiplier 214.

The outputs of the third, fourth, seventh and fifth multipliers 209, 210, 214 and 211 are respectively filtered through the first, second, third, and fourth FIR filters 215, 216, 217, 218. The first adder 219 as an I channel adder, combines the output signals of the first and third FIR filters 215 and 217 for an analog conversion by the first D/A converter 221. The second adder 220 as a Q channel adder, combined the output signals of the second and fourth FIR filters 216 and 218 for an analog conversion by the second D/A converter 222.

The output of the first D/A converter 221 of an I channel component and the output of the second D/A converter 222 of a Q channel component are the signals in which the pilot and data signal components are combined, and are respectively passed through the first and second LPFs 223 and 224. The output of the first LPF 223 is multiplied according to an in-phase component cosWIFt of the intermediate frequency at the eighth multiplier 225, and the output of the second LPF 224 is multiplied according to a quadrature-phase component sinWIFt of the intermediate frequency at the ninth multiplier 228. The outputs of the eighth and ninth multipliers 225 and 228 are added at the third adder 229, and the added signal is multiplied by the carrier signal cosWRFt at the tenth multiplier 230, assuming that, for example, Wc is a carrier frequency, Wc=WnIF+WRF. The output of the tenth multiplier 230 is passed through the first BPR 232, amplified at the amplifier 233, and then propagated to the free space through the antenna 234.

At the receiver side, the spread spectrum signal received via the antenna 301 is passed to the eleventh multiplier 304 through an LNA 302 and a second BPF 303. At the eleventh multiplier 304, the received spread spectrum signal is multiplied according to the carrier signal cosWRFt, and converted into the intermediate-frequency signal. The output of the eleventh multiplier 304 is multiplied according to an in-phase component cosWIFt of the intermediate frequency at the twelfth multiplier 306, and according a quadrature-phase component sinWIFt of the intermediate frequency at the thirteenth multiplier 308, and converted into the I channel and Q channel spreaded signals through the third and fourth LPFs 310 and 311. The outputs of the third and fourth LPFs 310 and 311 are converted into the digital signals through the first and second A/D converters 312 and 313. The digital signals are respectively multiplied by the I channel and Q channel PN codes, and despreaded at the first and second despreaders 315 and 316. The PN code component is removed from the despreaded signals by the I channel and Q channel PN codes. Thereafter, the fourteenth multiplier 319 multiplies the despreaded output signal of the first despreader 315 by the first Walsh code. The fifteenth multiplier 320 multiplies the despreaded output signal of the second despreader 316 by the first Walsh code.

The outputs of the fourteenth and fifteenth multipliers 319 and 320 are applied to the initial sync and sync detector 321 to establish the PN code synchronization and synchronization detection operation. The output of the initial sync and sync detector 321 is applied to the PN clock controller 322 for controlling the PN clock generator 323 to generate the PN clock which controls the generation timing of the PN codes of the I channel and Q channel PN code generator 314.

If the PN code synchronization is established at the initial synchronization and synchronization detector 321, the demodulation of the despreaded output signals of the first and second despreaders 315 and 316 is performed to obtain demodulated data.

The output signal of the first despreader 315 is multiplied by the first and second Walsh codes at the seventeenth and nineteenth multipliers 325 and 327. The output signal of the second despreader 316 is multiplied by the first and second Walsh codes at the sixteenth and eighteenth multipliers 324 and 326.

Thus, the outputs of the sixteenth and seventeenth multipliers 324 and 325 are pilot signal components and the outputs of the eighteenth and nineteenth multipliers 326 and 327 are data signal components. The outputs of the sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth multipliers 324 to 327 are respectively accumulated and dumped at the first, second, third, and fourth accumulator and dump circuits 328 to 331. The outputs of the second and third accumulator and dump circuits 329 and 330 are multiplied at the twentieth multiplier 332, and the outputs of the first and fourth accumulator and dump circuits 328 and 331 are multiplied at the twenty first multiplier 333.

The subtractor 334 subtracts the output of the twenty-first multiplier 333 from the output of the twentieth multiplier 332 in order to generate a subtracted value. The decider 335 detects the data phase from the subtracted value of the subtracter 334 in order to generate demodulated data.

In short, as the spread spectrum communication system constructed according to the present invention seeks to transmit the pilot signal representing a binary bit of “1” in a pilot channel in addition to the information signal so that the pilot signal can be used for PN code acquisition at a receiving side. This is because the pilot signal to be transmitted is always “1”, and the PN codes at a transmitting side are not modulated but remain pure and unmodulated for transmission through the pilot channel using the Walsh code.

As described above, the present invention is advantageous in that, as the PN code synchronization is established using the pure PN codes, the code acquisition can be easily improved with a lower bit error rate, and the time required to establish initial synchronization can be effectively enhanced. Moreover, another advantage of the present invention is that the pilot channel and the data channel are easily separated by the Walsh codes output from the Walsh code generators.

While there have been illustrated and described what are considered to be preferred embodiments of the present invention, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that various changes and modifications may be made, and equivalents may be substituted for elements thereof without departing from the true scope of the present invention. In addition, many modifications may be made to adapt a particular situation to the teaching of the present invention without departing from the central scope thereof. Therefore, it is intended that the present invention not be limited to the particular embodiment disclosed as the best mode contemplated for carrying out the present invention, but that the present invention includes all embodiments falling within the scope of the appended claims.
