Smart Antenna - Performance Analysis - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

 Post subject: Smart Antenna - Performance Analysis
Posted: Fri Nov 05, 2004 7:59 am 
I am a student. I have to simulate an adaptive smart antenna system, that is an adaptive antenna array, whose outputs are adaptively combined through a set of complex weights (signal amplitude and phase adjustments) to form a single output with beam steering interference mitigation capabilities. I have to show how the performance of an adaptive system is related to the DOA spread of multipath signals and the impact of the number of multipath on the performance of an adaptive antenna system. The simulated system has to be an optimum combining array with 8 omni-directional elements. I have to assume that there are 5 gaussian multipath signals. I have to show on the X axis the SNR at each antenna element and on the Y axis the bit error rate (BER) of coherent demodulation of BPSK at the array output. The variables that I have to inspected in the simulation are: number of elements, number of multipath, DOA (direction of arrival) spread, beamwidth of the directional antenna element and the number of element that will be chosen for beamforming process. I have to simulate two kinds of communication system: TDMA and CDMA. Bynary phase shift keying (BPSK) modulation is used in all simulation.I suppose flat rayleigh fading. There is an adaptive antenna array performance simulation software that may help me?

send me the algorithm and matlab code you are implementing to this id "prashanthvreddy@rediff.com"

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
