Channel estimation is a key step in the initial synchronisation of a RAKE receiver. In this paper we present an algorithm for multipath channel estimation based on an elegant new technique for resolving the multipath components. The performance of the algorithm is assessed through simulation in a full UTRA-FDD compliant uplink scenario. Test results are(More)
Spatial transmit diversity schemes are now well integrated into third-generation cellular mobile communication system specifications. When DS-CDMA-based technology is deployed in typical macro-and microcell environments, multipath diversity and spatial diversity may be exploited simultaneously by a 2D RAKE receiver. The work presented in this paper focuses(More)
In this paper the benefits of using a UMTS FDD physical layer compliant library for rapid prototyping and system modelling are presented. The paper also emphasises the use of this library for practical training. In order to illustrate these benefits three examples of common 3G structures and concepts are presented, implemented and studied: hybrid phase(More)
