OFDM PHY Layer Implementation based on the 802.11 a Standard and system performance analysis

University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för systemteknik


Wireless communication is facing one of the fastest developments of the last years in the fields of technology and computer science in the world. There are several standards that deal with it. In this work, the IEEE standard 802.11a, which deals with wireless LAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications, is going to be discussed in detail.

Taking this into consideration, PHY specifications and its environment are going to be studied.

The work that the ISY department at the Institute of Technology of the Linköping University has proposed is to design a PHY layer implementation for WLANs, in a CPU, using MATLAB/Simulink and in a DSP processor, using Embedded Target for C6000 DSP and Code Composer Studio and, once implemented both, to perform and analyse the performance of the system under those implementations.
