Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting assignment:
You need to use MS word document to prepare and submit the assignment on VU-LMS.
It should be clear that your assignment will not get any credit if:
The assignment is submitted after due date.
The assignment is not in the required format (doc or docx)
The submitted assignment does not open or file is corrupt.
Assignment is copied (partial or full) from any source (websites, forums, students, etc)
The objective of this assignment is to increase the learning capabilities of the students about:
• WCDMA Modulation
• Channel Capacity in WCDMA
• Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS)
• Spread Code
Question – 01
Consider a CDMA network which has a chip rate of 384 MCPS (Megachips Per Second). The network has a downlink spreading factor (SF) of 8. The channel control overhead is 5%. By considering the given scenario, answer the following questions:
- What will be the symbol rate for downlink channels?
- What will be channel bit rate if bit rate per symbol is 2?
- What will be the maximum user available data rate?
Note: Provide complete steps of calculation otherwise marks will be deducted.
Question – 02
Consider a WCDMA network which uses direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) as a modulation technique to encode the transmitted data in a way to reduce the noise interference. Now, suppose you want to transmit a 16-bit data 8B 85 (given in hexadecimal form) over the network. What will be the output spread data if data is modulated by using the 8-bit spread code AB?
Note: The data values are given in hexadecimal for the sake of increased readability.
Best of Luck!
