BACKGROUND

[0002] In a communication system using a CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) scheme, transmits given the known signal waveform before the signal sending data, communication devices belonging to the communication system, this known signal waveform constantly monitors whether power is present on the transmission line. Their to communication device, when detecting the presence of a known signal waveform, even without transmission if there is transmission data, and to perform the receiving operation. Further, in the case of a communication system using TDMA (Time Division Multip le Access) scheme, so that it can be synchronized with the underlying periodic contact and timing of the terminal is time division, the base station transmits a known signal waveform periodically end end in some cases, such as for synchronization by detecting the known signal waveforms.

Specifically, compared with a certain threshold the measurement result of RSSI, determines that the measured value of RSSI is the signal is present is larger than the threshold value, low measured value of the RSSI is below the threshold V, the Do and signal exists, it is determined that things were the case.

[0004] Further, the signal waveform of the transmission line, constantly monitors the correlation value between the preamble signal waveform is a known waveform, determines that the signal is present if the threshold is greater than with this correlation value, whereas, by correlation value is determined that there is no signal when less than the threshold value, there a method of to detect the presence of a signal of a communication system of interest more reliably (e.g., Patent documents 1).

[0005] Furthermore, in the communication system using OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) as the modulation method, inverse fast Fourier transform on the transmitting side (IFFT: Inverse Fast Fouri er Transform) time carrying different information to a plurality of frequency using the generates a waveform, the fast Fourier transform in the receiver side (FFT: fast Fourier transform) process for separating the information of the individual frequency by is performed. Bale processing unit calls and the like symbols in this IFFTZFFT, the FFT processing upon reception cut out a received signal using the appropriate symbol timing, it is necessary to FFT input. This also detected symbol timing preamble signal is used, the correlation values ​​of the aforementioned carrier detection as well as the received waveform at the receiving end, based on the timing of the peak position where the correlation value is maximized, the symbol timing method of detecting is used (for example, non-Patent Document 1).

[0008] In addition, there is a method using cross-correlation and methods of using the self-correlation method using the correlation value, the autocorrelation, targeting signal is repeatedly transmitted, it multiplies the signal delayed by repetition period obtaining a correlation value by integrating the result. In contrast, the cross-correlation, determine the correlation value by integrating the multiplication results of the respective samples of the preamble signal waveform and the reception waveform already known. Generally, the detection accuracy of the multiplier circuit power Tsude good but obtained only slow and force peak timing is autocorrelation inferior cross correlation. Although it is necessary to sample number only multiplying circuit for obtaining a correlation in the cross-correlation is high detection accuracy of the timing for steep peak is obtained. Note that the autocorrelation, cross-correlation in both the, the integration requires a summing circuit for obtaining the sum of the number of samples of the multiplication result, while the detection accuracy as a longer period to obtain the correlation value becomes higher in any case , there has been a problem that the circuit scale is increased.

BEST MODE FOR CARRYING OUT THE INVENTION

[0014] Hereinafter, the theory is bright in detail with reference to the embodiment of the signal detection apparatus according to the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings. It should be understood that the invention is not limited by these embodiments.

[0015] Embodiment 1.

Figure 1 is a diagram illustrating an exemplary configuration of a communication apparatus (transmitter) for transmitting data to a communication apparatus provided with a signal detection apparatus according to the present invention the OFDM modulation to, 1 indicates the transmitter. The transmitter 1 receives transmission information 10 becomes bit column force, a modulation unit 11 for outputting the modulation results, the IFFT unit 12 for converting the frequency domain power also to the time domain the output of the modulation unit 11, I FFT the output of section 12 digital Z-analog converter for converting into analog form and (D / a) 13, a known signal for carrier detection and timing determination (hereinafter, preamble and hump) when generating its original It includes a preamble generator 40 which generates a preamble pattern to be a. Incidentally, 14 is a transmission signal to analog converter, 2 is a transmission line.

[0016] Further, FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating a configuration example of a first embodiment of a communication apparatus having a signal detection apparatus according to the present invention (the receiver), 3 indicates the receiver. The receiver 3 converts the received signal 34 from the transmission side analog Z-digital converter (A / D) 33 which converts the digital format, the output of the A ZD conversion unit 33 into the time domain mosquito ゝ Luo frequency domain an FFT unit 32, the FFT unit 3 2 of the output demodulates bit string force is also a demodulating unit 31 for generating reception information 30 of the carrier detection timing judgment unit which performs carrier detection and timing detection based on the output of the FFT unit 32 It includes a 50, a. The two are the same transmission path as that shown in FIG. 1, the transmitter 1 and the receiver 3 forming the communication system exchanges signals via the transmission line 2.

[0017] Subsequently, the detailed operation of the transmitter 1 and the receiver 3 of the structure described above. Here, the transmitter 1 generates a transmission signal based on transmission information 10 is received by the receiver 3 to the generated signal, to recover the (transmission information 10 to generate a received signal 30 by performing the demodulation ) for explaining the operation.

[0018] First, the transmitter 1 includes a transmission of the preamble signal, it will be described with reference signal transmission operation in FIG. When transmitting a preamble signal, the preamble generation unit 40 generates a known preamble pattern determined in advance. This preamble pattern is as called M-sequence For example the other is a pseudo random pattern comprising a bit string of '0' and '1'. The generated preamble pattern is input to the modulator 11, modulator 11, for example, BPSK (Binary Phase Shift Keying) or QPSK (Quadrate Phase Shift Keying), according to a modulation scheme, such as Q AM (Quadrate Amplitude Modulation) divides the Apulian emissions Bull pattern input (bit string) for each subcarrier, it mapped to more complex plane. For example, if you shall BPSK modulating the preamble patterns, divides the bit string input also preamble generator 40 force by Lbit, if '0' "- l + 0j", if "1" "1 + Oj and so ", and converts the complex data representing the two points on the complex plane.

[0019] complex data generated by the modulation unit 11 is input to the I FFT unit 12 as the information in the frequency domain for each subcarrier. IFFT unit 12 converts the information entered into the time domain information, and outputs the digital time waveform information equal to the composite wave obtained by combining the waveform of each sub-carrier. Furthermore, digital time waveform information, digital Z-analog converter by (hereinafter, DZA called a converting unit) 13 is converted into a signal in analog form, issued sent to the transmission path 2 as the transmission signal 14.

[0020] In addition, the preamble pattern be assigned to all subcarriers, good be allocated a portion of Sabukiyari Anomi Te use ヽ. [0021] Furthermore, when transmitting the transmission information 10, the point at which any transmission information bit sequence in place of the known patterns inputted to the modulator 11 is input from the preamble generator 40 (transmission information 10) only different, the basic operation of the modulation unit 11, IFFT unit 12 and the DZA converter 13 is similar to the operation of the preamble signal transmission as described above. However, the modulation method of the transmission information but it may also use the same necessary Nag other modulation scheme is a modulation scheme of the preamble.

[0022] Note that the method of realizing the preamble generator 40, a method of generating a preamble pattern using a shift register and XOR operation circuit if pseudo random sequence such as M sequence, because Ji roughness force as a memory preamble and a method allowed to store the pattern. Also, when the preamble generator 40 and the memory configuration, may be stored the digital time between waveform information of the preamble signal. In this case, the output of the preamble generator 40 is input directly to the DZA converter 13.

[0023] Next, the receiver 3 will be described operation when a signal is received (received signal 34) via the transmission path 2. When receiving data in, when there is an input of the received signal 34, analog-Z-digital converter (hereinafter, referred to as AZD conversion unit) 33 converts it into digital time waveform information. FFT unit 32 that corresponds to the signal conversion means, by converting the input from AZD converter 33 into frequency domain to generate a complex data as a frequency-domain information for each subcarrier. Demodulation unit 31, for example, BPSK, QPSK, in accordance with the predetermined et demodulation scheme such as QAM, the input from AZD converter 33, and de-maps the bit string for each sub-carrier, as a continuous bit string to generate the received information 30.

[0024] Tsu to the reception processing of the preamble signal, also, FFT unit 32, until the operation for converting into time domain force frequency domain AZD converter 33 input is the same as reception processing of the data. At the time of the preamble signal reception, the complex data of each subcarrier generated by the FFT unit 32 is inputted to the carrier detection timing judgment unit 50, the carrier detection timing-format tough 50 performs detection and timing determination carrier.

[0025] Subsequently, the operation of carrier detection timing detection unit 50. Figure 3 is a diagram illustrating a configuration example of a carrier detection timing determination unit 50 included in the receiver of the present embodiment. The carrier detection timing detection unit 50 converts a preamplifier Le pattern generation unit 51 that generates frequency information for each subcarrier of the same known signal shall be transmitted (a preamble signal) from the transmitter 1, the complex the complex conjugate value a complex conjugate unit 52 which, with the complex multipliers 53, the complex summer 54 to calculate the sum of the plurality of complex numbers, the absolute value calculator 55 for leaving calculate the absolute value of a complex number, the absolute of the calculated complex number compared with predetermined threshold values ​​comprises an absolute value and Canon rear detection determining unit 56 determines that the carrier is detected in the case of more than the threshold value, the.

[0026] complex number information for each subcarrier inputted from the FFT unit 32 to the carrier detection timing detection unit 50 and X (i is the subcarrier number). In carrier detection timing detection unit 50, a preamble pattern generator 51 corresponding to the known frequency information generating means (the i subcarrier number) complex information P for each subcarrier in the preamble signal to generate them complex conjugate generator complex conjugate unit 52 which corresponds to means for converting the complex conjugate P *. Then, complex multiplier 53, which corresponds to the multiplication means to obtain a Y by multiplying the complex number information X of the received signal the P *. In addition, the complex summator 54 which corresponds to the adding means for calculating the sum Z of Y. Thus obtained Z can be expressed by the following equation (1).

[0027] [number 1]

i = 0 i = 0

••• (1)

[0028] Then, the absolute value calculator 55 calculates the absolute value of the sum value Z complex summer 54 output. Z is also a complex number, if it was a "Z = A + Bj", the absolute value of which is represented by the following formula (2).

[0029] [number 2]

| Z | = VA 2 + B 2

••• (2)

[0030] Further, instead of the absolute values ​​shown in the above equation (2) (corresponds to the amplitude), the absolute value calculating the square value (corresponding to power) of the total sum value Z as shown in the following equation (3) the like parts 55 is calculated, the carrier detection-format tough 56 may perform a carrier detection using the square value of the sum Z.Z 2 = A 2 + B 2 - - (3)

[0031] A sum value of all the subcarriers; use a (multiplication result Y obtained by adding all) V, Runode the Tsu only some of the subcarriers Nag, the sum of the hand (the multiplication result Y; it may be to calculate the added values) for that selected part to execute the subsequent processing using the addition result from the. The absolute value calculating section 55 and the carrier detection unit 56 constitutes a signal detecting hand stage.

[0032] Here, the above equation (2) or (3) capable of carrier detection reasons using is described. By multiplying the complex conjugate P complex information X and a preamble pattern of the received signal *, it multiplied if the received signal is a preamble signal results Y, how subcarriers also "iota + Oj" becomes, the total sum value " k + Oj ", the absolute value of the sum value is k. On the other hand, if the received signal is different from the preamble signal signal Y; becomes a different value for each sub-carrier, the absolute value of the total sum value becomes smaller than k. If using a pseudo-random pattern, such as M-sequence as a preamble pattern, the more the number of subcarriers is large, the absolute value of the sum values ​​in the case of receiving the non-preamble signal approaches 0 (zero).

[0033] In the real environment for performing communication, even when receiving the preamble signal for amplitude and phase changes due to channel characteristics, although not necessarily the absolute value is k, the multiple sub by taking the sum of the carrier, and when receiving the preamble signal, it will produce a clear difference in the absolute value in the case of receiving the other signal. Therefore, Kiyari § detection determining unit 56, the absolute value, it is possible to determine that carrier detection when the threshold is exceeded for signal detection determining predetermined in consideration of channel characteristics, It can detect the timing at which preamble signals are present. Where a preamble pattern you BPSK modulation has been described as an example, but the same applies when using other modulation schemes.

[0034] signal detection determination threshold, the absolute value and the absolute value of the based! /, Te decision on the relationship of the sum value when receiving a non-preamble signals of the summation values ​​in the case of receiving the preamble signal to. For example, the bit pattern to be used as a preamble pattern, the compared time carrier detection determination (LV, "absolute value" of the sum value as a target to be compared with the value, whether to use "square value of the absolute value"), type of information to be added when calculating the sum (what process the information obtained by Do to Caro calculated with respect to the input X to Kiyari § detection timing judgment unit), when calculating the sum the addition target number (number of information to be added), is determined in consideration of. Incidentally, from among a plurality of thresholds had been determined in advance in consideration of the channel characteristics, also good V ヽ as selected and used as appropriate optimal threshold value depending on the channel characteristics, Choi previously determined by per cent ヽ Tashiki ヽ values ​​in the so that use with appropriately adjusted according to the channel characteristics.

[0035] Thus, in this embodiment, the sender, to a plurality of frequencies determined because Ji roughness force, transmits those assigned a rough mosquitoes ゝ Ji because defined preamble pattern respectively as a preamble signal. On the other hand, on the receiving side, the preamble signal reception also separates the information for each frequency using FFT as in the case of data demodulation, using the results obtained by multiplying them with double prime conjugate value of the preamble patterns respectively Te, and to perform carrier detection and timing determined by determining the similarity between the received preamble signal and flop Lian Bull pattern. Thus, as compared with the case of performing carrier detection, etc. using only power that has been used conventionally, it is possible to reduce the possibility of performing erroneous detection.

[0036] Further, the FFT unit 32 Ya complex multiplier 53, so typical OFDM receiver is a circuit that includes normal for data reception, the demodulation of carrier detection and data do not need to perform simultaneously, it is possible to use the same circuit to detect a carrier. That is, it is possible as compared to the carrier detection by the correlation between the conventional time region, to realize a receiver as described above with a small circuit scale.

[0037] Embodiment 2.

Subsequently, a description will be given signal detection apparatus of the second embodiment. In the first embodiment described above, Oite the FFT result is obtained to perform the determination of the carrier detection by using the sum of complex multiplication results forces the embodiment of the conjugate complex value of a preamble pattern of the received signal the complex multiplication result of the complex conjugate values ​​of the preamble pattern further 2 Tsunosa subcarrier between using the result of the conjugate complex multiplication, determined in a minute unit than the time interval inputted preamble signal reception timing in the FFT a case will be described in which.

[0038] The transmitter of the present embodiment has the same configuration as the transmitter of the first embodiment described above (see Figure 1). The receiver is the same configuration as the receiver of the first embodiment (see FIG. 2), different detailed structure of the carrier detection timing judgment unit part. Therefore, in the present embodiment, portions other than the carrier detection timing judgment unit, the description is omitted, the operation of the timing detection determining unit (a timing detection determining unit 50a in this embodiment) only Description I do.

[0039] FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating a configuration example of a carrier detection timing determination unit 50a of the second embodiment. The carrier detection timing judgment unit 50a, to the carrier detection timing-format tough 50 of the first embodiment, further downstream of the complex multiplier 53 (the second) (the second) complex conjugate 52 and the complex multiplier vessel is added, also, a configuration of the phase calculating unit 57 and the timing determination unit 58 is additionally Caro. Note that, the other parts, and a description thereof will be omitted given the same reference numerals and the carrier detection timing judgment unit 50.

[0040] In the carrier detection timing determination unit 50a configured as described above, subsequent complex conjugate 52, except Y of the preceding complex multiplier 53 output (i.e. Y, Y, · · ·, Y) of the complex conjugate ( k 1 2 k-1

It can be represented by 4).

•••(Four)

[0042] Here, a description Te reason Nitsu ヽ added a later stage of the complex conjugator 52 and the rear stage of the complex multiplier 53. If the input range when inputting the received preamble signal to the FFT unit 32 does not match the output range at the time of generation of the transmit side, the complex conjugate value P * of the multiplication result of complex information X and flop Lian Bull pattern of the preamble signal Y produces a phase rotation corresponding to the shift amount and frequency of each subcarrier of the input range of the FFT unit 32 outputs the range and at the time of reception when the IFFT unit 12 as viewed as a vector. As a result, when it is complex adding the respective Y, components cancel each other by the phase difference in occurs. Therefore, obtained by further complex multiplication of Y with respect to the complex conjugate of the neighboring Sabukiyari § Y * Y 'is the subcarrier

i-1 i iG-1) becomes a vector having a phase rotation amount corresponding to the interval frequency, if there is one Jode subcarrier spacing frequency and vector (complex information) between any sub-carrier having the same phase.

The output of [0043] the complex summer 54 is input to an absolute value calculator 55 and the phase calculation unit 57. Processing in the absolute value calculating section 55 and the carrier detection judging section 56 is the same as the first embodiment described above. However, the threshold value of the signal detection judging the carrier detection judging section 56 is used is different from that used in the first embodiment. That is, the carrier detection judging unit 5 6, for example, information of type (complex conjugate combination 52 and complex multiplier 53 complex summer 54 adds when calculating the total sum value to the input X of the carrier detection timing judgment unit taking into account the one) is added to information obtained by executing processing such as etc. up vs. use those obtained by deformation of the threshold using Te embodiment 1 smell embodiment.

[0044] In the first embodiment, the carrier detection judgment 56, the input value (output of the absolute value calculating section 55) had a detection timing of the preamble signal when the threshold is exceeded. However Na husk, time waveform input to the FFT unit 32 has a width of the time intervals corresponding to the input range of the FFT unit 32, the timing information over the time interval can not be obtained (impossible to increase the detection accuracy) . Therefore, in the present embodiment, because that obtain a more detailed timing, phase calculator 57 first is to determine the phase of the sum Z by using the following equation (5).

However, Y 'when asked Mel the can, Y according to the frequency spacing between the subcarriers' between any sub-carrier also force the phase of a value corresponding to the phase rotation in the frequency interval between 1 subcarriers compensation is needed, such as calculating the sum Zeta.

[0050] Thus, in this embodiment, the sender, to a plurality of frequencies determined because Ji roughness force, transmits those assigned a rough mosquitoes ゝ Ji because defined preamble pattern respectively as a preamble signal. On the other hand, on the receiving side, the preamble signal reception also separates the information for each frequency using FFT as in the case of data demodulation, using the results obtained by multiplying them with double prime conjugate value of the preamble patterns respectively Te, and to perform carrier detection and timing determined by determining the similarity between the received preamble signal and flop Lian Bull pattern.
