Sammanfattning

Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN) has gained interest in the last few years and several air interfaces have been proposed to cover WPAN applications. A Multi-Carrier Spread Spectrum (MC-SS) air interface specified to achieve 130 Mbps in typical WPAN channels, is presented in this paper. It operates in the 5.2 GHz ISM band and achieves a spectral efficiency of 3.25 b.s-1.Hz-1. Besides the robustness of the MC-SS approach, this air interface yields to reasonable implementation complexity. This paper focuses on the hardware design and prototype of this MC-SS air interface. The prototype includes RF, baseband and IEEE802.15.3 compliant Medium Access Control (MAC) features. Implementation aspects are carefully analyzed for each part of the prototype and key hardware design issues and solutions are
presented. Hardware complexity and implementation loss are compared to theoretical expectation, as well as flexibility are discussed. Measurement results are provided for real condition of operations.
