Abstract
In a full duplex system as WCDMA a mobile phone transmits and receives at the same time, but at different frequencies. The transmitted signal will cause interference in the receiver which must be suppressed to not get degraded sensitivity in the receiver. This Master Thesis was carried out at Ericsson Mobile Platforms in Lund and the purpose was to examine a method to suppress the interference in the digital domain of a WCDMA transceiver. The method is based on that information from the transmitter is fed forward to the receiver to be able to recreate a resembled replica of the interference and subtract it from the desired signal. Further an adaptive least mean square algorithm is used to estimate correct amount of the interference and to... (More)
In a full duplex system as WCDMA a mobile phone transmits and receives at the same time, but at different frequencies. The transmitted signal will cause interference in the receiver which must be suppressed to not get degraded sensitivity in the receiver. This Master Thesis was carried out at Ericsson Mobile Platforms in Lund and the purpose was to examine a method to suppress the interference in the digital domain of a WCDMA transceiver. The method is based on that information from the transmitter is fed forward to the receiver to be able to recreate a resembled replica of the interference and subtract it from the desired signal. Further an adaptive least mean square algorithm is used to estimate correct amount of the interference and to provide a tracking ability for temperature variations. A simulator model was developed in matlab to be able to analyze the interference and design a proper cancellation block between the transmitter and the receiver. This simulator model was designed with complexity reductions that did not affect the study of the phenomena. According to simulations, the LMS algorithm turned out to be a sufficient choice concerning rate of convergence, misadjustment and robustness. The main limitation of the improvement by using a cancellation block, was instead determined by the distortion in the transmitter. The trend today is to achieve lower and lower distortions in the uplink making this method more interesting. (Less)
