Design and Implementation of a SDR-based Digital Filter for CDMA Systems

  • Published : 2008.11.30


In this study, Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology-based digital filterbank architecture applicable to a multiple-channel processing system such as a wireless mobile communication system using Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology is proposed. The technique includes a micro-processor to redesign Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filter coefficients according to specific system information and to download the filter coefficients to one digital Band Pass Filter (BPF) to reconfigure another system. The feasibility of the algorithm is verified by computer simulation and by implementing a multiple-channel signal generator that is reconfigurable to other system profiles, including those of a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) system and a CDMA system.
