Somayazulu, S. Roy, E. Green, K. Tinsley, C. Brabenac, D. Leeper, M. Ho] Company [Intel Corporation] Address [JF3-212, 2111 N.E. 25th Ave., Hillsboro, OR, 97124] Voice [503-264-6859], FAX: [503-264-3483] E-Mail:[] Re:[The contribution is in response to the Call for Proposals for a high-rate WPAN extension to be developed in the IEEE 802.15.3a task group.] Abstract: [This contribution details a proposal for a high-rate, short-range WPAN physical layer approach based upon a multi-banded UWB system architecture. The system has variable data rates to address numerous application requirements; flexible spectrum management techniques to adapt, either dynamically or statically, to different interference and regulatory environments; good performance in the presence of multipath and multiple access interference with several areas for improvement in the future; and scalable levels of complexity and power consumption to support devices with different device implementation targets.] Purpose: [This contribution is given to the IEEE 802.15.3a task group for consideration as a possible high-rate, short-range physical layer solution for WPAN applications.] Notice: This document has been prepared to assist the IEEE P802.15.

  4. Why UWB and why spectrum agility? • Why UWB for IEEE 802.15.3a? • UWB technology is uniquely suited for high-rate, short range access • Theoretical advantages for approaching high rates by scaling bandwidth • Newly allocated unlicensed spectrum (7.5 GHz) that does not take away from other narrowband systems (licensed or unlicensed) • CMOS implementations now possible at these higher frequencies • Why spectrum agility for a UWB solution? • Just because the FCC allows UWB to transmit on top of other services does not mean we should! • Government regulations should be broader than industry requirements • Spectrum usage and interference environment changes by country location, within a local usage area, and over time • Enable adaptive detection and avoidance strategies for better coexistence and possible non-contiguous spectrum allocations for flexible regulations in future • Allow for simple backward compatibility and future scalability Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  5. Time (ns) Frequency (GHz) A Multi-banded approach for Spectrum Agility • Divide spectrum into separate bands (BW > 500 MHz) • Allow devices to statically or dynamically select which bands to use for transmission • Decision based on device throughput requirements, interference environment, geographical location, etc. • Modulate data in an appropriate manner using a concatenation of these bands Single Symbol Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  6. Proposed Multi-band UWB PHY System Architecture Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  7. UWB PHY System Architecture • Transmitter and example receiver block diagrams • Coding/Interleaving/Modulation Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  8. UWB PHY System Architecture • Proposed Modulation and Coding • M-ary Binary Orthogonal Keying (MBOK) + QPSK Modulation • Power efficient modulation • Orthogonal code (Walsh-Hadamard) with interleaving allows for symbol decision feedback equalization • Fast Hadamard Transforms exist with low latency and low complexity • Outer Reed-Solomon Code • Reed-Solomon used to correct burst errors • System architecture can accommodate any of these alternate coding options • Punctured Convolutional Codes • Concatenated Convolutional + Reed-Solomon • Turbo codes (convolutional or product code based) • Low density parity check (LDPC) codes Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  9. UWB PHY System Architecture • Waveform Shape and Frequency Mapping • 3 nsec pulse with rectified cosine shape (~700 MHz 10-dB bandwidth) • Frequency separation = 550 MHz • Center Frequencies • 1st 7 bands: [3.6, 4.15, 4.7, 5.25, 5.8, 6.35, 6.9] GHz • 2nd 6 bands: [7.45, 8, 8.55, 9.1, 9.65, 10.2] GHz • Frequency offset of 275 MHz support for enhanced channelization • 1st 7 bands: [3.875, 4.425, 4.975, 5.525, 6.075, 6.625, 7.175] • 2nd 5 bands: [7.725, 8.275, 8.825, 9.375, 9.925] Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  10. UWB PHY System Architecture • Framing and non-overlapping symbol mapping (extended time-frequency codes) • Extension factor (N) = # of symbols Tx before hopping to new frequency (N=4 selected for this proposal) Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  11. 4 UWB PHY System Architecture read 32 write • Mapping and interleaving of bi-orthogonal codewords • Block interleave 4 bi-orthogonal codewords (as shown below) • 6/3 byte interleaving delay (depending on I/Q interleaving strategy) Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  12. Link Budget and Supported Data Rates Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  13. Link Budget and Supported Data Rates • Assumptions (see backup for more details) • 7 dB system noise figure • 0 dBi Tx/Rx antennas • 3 dB ‘implementation margin’ • 7 bands (3.6 – 6.9 GHz) Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  14. Link Budget and Supported Data Rates • Alternate rates can be supported using different number of bands (>7 bands supported through parallel transmission) • * Possible signaling schemes for Beacon • Allows for lower complexity devices to join the network • Bands could be located between 3.1-5.1 GHz for easier coexistence with 802.11a Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  15. Multiple Access Techniques and Performance Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  16. System uses a combination of DS/FH CDMA with optional FDM DS enabled through use of random PN mask applied to every chip + low rate code Different users use different offset of long PN sequence FH enabled through periodic Time-Frequency (FH) codes (7 bands numbered 0…6) 6 codes available FDM enabled through piconet coordination Receiver implementations Rake receiver improves piconet isolation Channelization for multiple piconets* Time slots in frame 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 0 2 4 6 1 3 5 2 0 3 6 2 5 1 4 Piconet number 3 0 4 1 5 2 6 3 4 0 5 3 1 6 4 2 5 0 6 5 4 3 2 1 6 * TDMA used within a piconet Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  17. Multiple Access Performance in Multipath • Simulation results based on • 108 Mbps mode with 7 bands, RS encoder, 6/32 MBOK, 200 packets (221 byte packets), No AWGN (for simplicity) • CM1(1) channel used for desired user (normalized total energy to one…take out effects of shadowing) • One interfering user tested using 25 CM1, CM2, and CM3 channels (normalized total energy to one…channels selected were 2-26) • Random propagation delay between desired and interfering user • No frequency offset (simulations show 2-3 dB ISR improvement with offset) • Metric used: Maximum Interference-to-signal ratio (ISR) • Results (% channels with 0 packet errors) Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  18. Multiple Access Performance in Multipath • Interpretation of results • Results based on single user interference yields total interference margin • Margin can be divided between small number of close-in interferers or larger number of further away interferers (correlation of random PN mask and long MBOK codeword makes interference look noise-like) • Example: Assume desired user operating at 5 m distance • ISR = 6 dB allows one interferer at 2.5 m distance or 4 interferers at 5 m distance • Results show 6+ dB of protection for most channels tested • Many CM3 channels with 7+ dB of protection • Many CM1 and CM2 channels with 10+ dB of protection Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  19. Multiple Access Performance in Multipath • How much is enough? • Protection needed only when ‘simultaneous’ transmissions occur • Not all devices will be transmitting at the same time • Always cases when more protection is needed • Uncoordinated techniques for improved MAI rejection • With increasing levels of SIR degradation due to MAI • use offset frequency bands (improves ISR by 2-3 dB) • reduce code rate • reduce number of occupied bands (drop heavily interfered bands) • Coordinated techniques for improved MAI rejection • Use “child” piconet mechanism in 802.15.3 MAC to • Create time slots for the interfering piconets • Create frequency band-sets for the interfering piconets (FDM) • Piconets do not need time synchronization after coordination • Could help address severe near-far problems Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  20. Multipath Mitigation Techniques and Performance Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  21. Multipath Mitigation Methods • Multipath mitigated through 4 techniques • Interleaving MBOK chips over different frequencies provides frequency diversity • MRC of chips in MBOK decoder • Time-frequency codes results in 72 nsec separation between frequency ‘on’ times (allows for multipath to ring down) • ISI between 4 adjacent chips during ‘on’ time requires equalization • Interleaving MBOK codewords allows for effective decision feedback equalizer • Feed-forward filter can capture energy of multipath during 4-chip ‘on’ time • Additional rake fingers could also be used Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  22. Multipath Performance • Simulation results based on • 108 Mbps mode with 7 bands, RS encoder, 6/32 MBOK • 200 packets (221 byte packets) • 100 realizations of CM1, CM2, and CM3 (CM4 in future) • 333 MHz sample rate (one sample per chip) • Fixed sample time between samples (sub-optimum sampling per band) • Simple decision feedback equalizer + 4-tap feed-forward rake filter • No rake • Results (% channels with 0 packet errors) *SNR at 10 m Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  23. Multipath Performance • Interpretation of results • Link performance dominated by energy capture (shadowing + finite length rake) • Simple equalizer not sufficient for ~10% of channels in each case • Maximum Eb/No = 12.8 dB @ 10 m can be supported (includes the implementation margin…some implementation losses captured in sims) • Can close-the-link for all channels in which Eb/No~12 dB yields 0 packet errors • Lots of room for improvement • Improved receiver design • Improved equalizer + rake combining schemes (4-tap MMSE equalizer) • Add more rake arms • Detect partial overlapping pulses within 12 nsec interval • Add parallel receiver branches to capture energy in 24+ nsec intervals • Improved sampling time by optimizing for each band • Alternate FEC schemes Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  24. Coexistence and Narrowband Interference Mitigation Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  25. Coexistence Strategies • Static Control • Pre-configure device (through software control) not to use a particular band • Based on geographic region or device usage • Dynamic Control • Allow device to detect presence of NBI and avoid • Device interoperability requirements could specify detection requirements to ensure adequate control • Similar methods used in 802.11h for WLAN coexistence with radar systems in Europe • UWB power emitted into 802.11a bands • Avoiding 5.25 (5.8) GHz band for lower (upper) UNII band coexistence: < -20 dB attenuation from Part 15 limits at band edge • UWB power emitted into 4.9 GHz WLAN band in Japan • Avoiding 4.7 (4.975 using frequency offset channels) GHz band: < -10 dB (<-20 dB) attenuation from Part 15 limits at band edge Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  26. Narrowband Interference Strategies • RF Front End Implications • All UWB systems must deal with strong interference at antenna (not unique to multi-band solutions) • Can be handled through filters, component linearity requirements, and power consumption • For strong NBI • Detect and avoid use of band via signaling to PNC • Rely on adjacent channel rejection of filters + receiver signal processing • For moderate or weak NBI sources (SIR < X dB) • Let link design and receiver implementations mitigate interference • UWB pulsed signaling + MBOK + RS coding • Interference suppression and/or cancellation techniques Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  27. Acquisition and Preamble Definition Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  28. Preamble Definition • Goal: Pfa and Pmd ~ 10% of 8% PER target, i.e. < 0.008 • Simulations in multipath so far show estimated preamble lengths • to be quite conservative • Preamble divided into two parts • CCA/packet detection + coarse timing acquisition • Fine timing adjustment + channel estimation + SIR estimation Step 1 CCA/packet detect, Coarse Timing 5.4ms Step 2 Fine timing; channel, SIR estimation 4ms Total proposed preamble time: 9.4ms • Beacon packets use the basic preamble structure shown • Actual preamble sequence discussed in back-up based on concatenation of CAZAC sequences • Shorter preamble options can be used for higher throughputs Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  29. Implementation feasibility Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  30. Implementation feasibility • Proposed multi-band architecture has many elements designed to reduce complexity and power consumption • Non-overlapped timing • Shared pulse generator, ADC, correlator, … • Reduced power consumption via duty cycle of bands • Don’t necessarily require N continuously running PLLs • ADC sampling at symbol rate (330 MHz for 1 sample/symbol or 660 MHz for 2 samples/symbol) • Reused circuits = smaller die area • Many elements in common with other UWB architectures • LNA, mixers, BP/LP filters, AGC, VGA, digital processing (FEC, equalization, etc.) • Many possible transceiver implementations Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  31. Implementation feasibility Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation

  32. Implementation feasibility RX Oversampling Factor *0.18um mixed signal CMOS (all components, including LNA), 5-bit ADCs, digital processing excluded, estimates for smaller # of bands not optimized. Jeff Foerster, Intel Corporation
