This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/).Coherent optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (CO-OFDM) has attracted a lot of interest in optical fiber communications due to its simplified digital signal processing (DSP) units, high spectral-efficiency, flexibility, and tolerance to linear impairments. However, CO-OFDM’s high peak-to-average power ratio imposes high vulnerability to fiber-induced non-linearities. DSP-based machine learning has been considered as a promising approach for fiber non-linearity compensation without sacrificing computational complexity. In this paper, we review the existing machine learning approaches for CO-OFDM in a common framework and review the progress in this area with a focus on practical aspects and comparison with benchmark DSP solutions.Peer reviewe

    The paper describes the implementation of a real-time integrated modem/codec system for long-range radio communications, e.g. HF. The system has been developed by the Hull-Lancaster Communication Research Group. The system has been implemented using a proprietary DSP-based architecture which uses the AT&T DSP32C digital signal processor and the transmission format comprises MFSK modulation combined with RS coding. The main features of the system are described and results from on-air HF trials over both static and aeromobile channels are presente

    Digital Frequency Domain Multiplexer for mm-Wavelength Telescopes

    An FPGA based digital signal processing (DSP) system for biasing and reading out multiplexed bolometric detectors for mm-wavelength telescopes is presented. This readout system is being deployed for balloon-borne and ground based cosmology experiments with the primary goal of measuring the signature of inflation with the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. The system consists of analog superconducting electronics running at 250mK and 4K, coupled to digital room temperature backend electronics described here. The digital electronics perform the real time functionality with DSP algorithms implemented in firmware. A soft embedded processor provides all of the slow housekeeping control and communications. Each board in the system synthesizes multi-frequency combs of 8 to 32 carriers in the MHz band to bias the detectors. After the carriers have been modulated with the sky-signal by the detectors, the same boards digitize the comb directly. The carriers are mixed down to base-band and low pass filtered. The signal bandwidth of 0.050 Hz - 100 Hz places extreme requirements on stability and requires powerful filtering techniques to recover the sky-signal from the MHz carriers.Comment: 6 pages, 6 figures, Submitted May 2007 to IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science (TNS

    A 30 Gbps Low-Complexity and Real-Time Digital Modem for Wireless Communications at 0.325 THz

    © 2019 IEEE. A high-speed wideband terahertz (THz) communication system with low-complexity and real-time digital signal processing (DSP) is presented in this paper. The architectures of baseband platform, intermediate frequency (IF) module and radio frequency (RF) frontend are described. For real-time DSP implementation with affordable field programmable gate array (FPGA) device, some effective strategies are discussed to reduce resource usage and ensure that the clock constraints are met. Adopting these strategies, all physical layer DSP modules are implemented in two FPGAs with more than 300 MHz system clock. The experimental test results using the developed real-time digital modem prototype demonstrate the superb performance for THz wireless communications

    A Texas instruments DSP-based acoustic source direction finder

    This document describes the implementation of a DSP-based acoustic source direction finder and its application to control the direction of a steerable camera. For real-time implementation a TMS320F2812 digital signal controller was used. The system can be used for different applications like in teleconferencing rooms or surveillance systems. This report presents a description of the developed system in three phases of the project: direction of arrival estimation, analog interfase, and servomotor control. The application was developed by undergraduate students at the Autonomous University of Zacatecas as a final project in the course “DSPs programming”, which is one of the DSP courses thought in the Communications and Electronics Engineering program, with a major in DSP

    In the past years, digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms and architectures for baseband communication systems have fuelled the delivery of applications such as 3G mobile communications and wireless LAN to mass markets. This was made possible by a tremendous growth in the performance of computational devices such as digital signal processors and FPGAs, as well as an increase in sampling rates of conversion devices to potentially several 100 MHz. While the development of both computational devices and ADCs/DACs continues, thus permitting DSP to be applied at IF sampling rates and possibly beyond, the opportunities for further enhancing radio devices by DSP algorithms and architectures arise. Against this background of development, an IEE/EURASIP conference on “DSP-Enabled Radio” was held at the Institute for System Level Integration (ISLI) in Livingston, Scotland, in September 2003. This very lively one-and-ahalf- day event brought together 120 researchers from both industry and academia with a strong international participation. It was the spirit of this DSP-Enabled Radio conference and the contributions therein that brought to life the idea to this special issue. This issue contains both contributions from the event and responses to an open call for papers

    Digital Signal Processing Education: Technology and Tradition

    No full text
    In this paper we discuss a DSP course presented to both University students and to participants on industrial short courses. The "traditional" DSP course will typically run over one to two semesters and usually cover the fundamental mathematics of z-, Laplace and Fourier transforms, followed by the algorithm and application detail. In the course we will discuss, the use of advanced DSP software and integrated support software allow the presentation time to be greatly shortened and more focussed algorithm and application learning to be introduced. By combining the traditional lecture with the use of advanced DSP software, all harnessed by the web, we report on the objectives, syllabus, and mode of teaching

    Implementation of a secure digital chaotic communication scheme on a DSP board

    Get PDF
    In this paper, a new a secure communication scheme using chaotic signal for transmitting binary digital signals is proposed and which is then implemented on a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) board. The method uses the idea of indirect coupled synchronization for generating the same keystream in the transmitter and receiver side. This chaotic keystream is applied to encrypt the message signal before being modulated with a chaotic carrier generated from the transmitter. Discrete chaotic maps, 3D Henon map and Lorenz system are used as transmitter/receiver and key generators respectively. The overall system is experimentally implemented in the TMS320C6713 DSK board using code composer and Simulink showing the successful message extraction thus proving the feasibility of the system in the DSP board
