Abstract

We describe the essential features of a novel indoor short-range radio test bed, whose primary goal has been to define and explore concepts related to radio flexibility. The main characteristics of the radio transceiver are: 17GHz radio carrier, 215Mbit/s gross data rate capacity and OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) modulation scheme. Power consumption, timing and control was identified as major challenges for designing high data rate TDMA (time division multiple access) based systems. To attack the power consumption challenge, adaptivity and reconfigurability can be efficient tools. First, the concept and the architecture of the complete modem with adaptive and reconfigurable features, being independent dimensions of the flexibility, are discussed briefly, after which the baseband implementation and reference performance is described in detail.
