    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3625 KB)

    In this paper we describe a Simula package (or `context') for simulating radio communication networks. The context is developed in layers, the higher layers in the context being patterned after the levels of the ISO/OSI Reference Model. Each of the layers in our context is developed as a separate subclass of the standard Simula class Simulation, and layers that model OSI levels include interfaces ... View full abstract»

  • Computer Aided Performance Analysis of Multi-h CPM Data Transmission Systems in Practical Environments

    Publication Year: 1986, Page(s):36.4.1 - 36.4.7
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (894 KB)

    This paper describes a technique for applying Monte Carlo simulation methods to a digital communication system employing a high-level carrier phase modulation scheme known as multi-h CPM [1], [2]. This modulation format provides a means for achieving gains in the power/bandwidth tradeoff at the expense of increased complexity. Most papers in the literature on multi-h CPM deal with ideal environmen... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (786 KB)

    At high data rates, the advantages of spread spectrum techniques for protection against interference are reduced; however, adaptive antennas can be used to improve performance by placing nulls in the direction of the interference. Unfortunately, the design of adaptive antennas is complicated by the wide bandwidths required for spread spectrum systems. This paper describes two software tools, AAP a... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (483 KB)

    Polynomial models are available in a number of well-known equation solver and network simulation programs, such as FORMULA/ONE, PSPICE, and SPICE2. The application of these models to digital logics systems is considered, together with methods of coefficient evaluation to meet differing design specifications. Although the latter process is generally feasible, the extension of the model to multi-inp... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the development of a family of GaAs MMIC frequency converter chips operating from 0.8 to 8 GHz with 20-35 dB gain. Details of design approach and product performance are reported. More complex subsystems, such as image rejection converters, phase locked loop sources, and complete receivers, can be designed using these converters as basic building blocks. These more complex sub... View full abstract»

    Advances in military communications are making ever-increasing demands on integrated circuit technology. Many military communication systems require data rates in the gigahertz range. Usually gallium arsenide technology is chosen for these high-speed applications. However, for device counts in excess of 1000 transistors, the defect level is prohibitively high in gallium arsenide circuits. For thes... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (735 KB)

    The transition from silicon technology to GaAs brings with it almost an order of magnitude increase in device rise and fall times. These edge rates promise to increase even further as HEMT (High Electron Mobility Transistor) devices mature. Presently, proper high-speed TTL design requires transmission line analysis techniques but the interconnection constraints imposed by GaAs are considerably mor... View full abstract»
