four-channel transceiver testbed with signalling-wavelength-spaced antennas
under centralized FPGA control," in IEEE Proceedings of the 4th Annual
Communications Networks and Services Research Conference (CNSR 2006),
vol. 1, (Moncton, NB, Canada), pp. 311-313, May 24-25, 2006.
We propose a novel software defined radio implementation of a four-channel
transceiver testbed with signalling-wavelength-spaced antennas. The radio
frequency (RF) side of the system will be implemented using commercial off
the shelf (COTS) products, whereas the baseband processing portion of the
system will be implemented on a pair of Altera Stratix II EP2S180 development
boards with high-speed Analog Devices analog-to-digital converter (ADC)
daughter boards. The FPGA will be used to implement DSP algorithms and to
affect centralized control over the entire system. A goal is to create a
testbed for algorithms and radio channel measurements.
This research was supported by the Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF)

We are grateful that the IEEE Communications Society was a technical co-sponsor of CNSR 2006.
