Implementation and Analysis of Multi-Carrier Synchronization Techniques

Tutor: Johannes Demel
Type of Thesis: Bachelor thesis (BSc.)
date of end: 12/2017
Student: Leonard Göhrs
Status: finished

Receivers need to synchronize to a transmitter. This includes timing, frequency and phase recovery. An investigation of common attributes and differences for different multicarrier waveforms shall be performed.

Main goals
- extensive research on synchronization algorithms for multicarrier waveforms (e.g. FBMC, UFMC, GFDM, OFDM)
- implement synchronization algorithms
- separate between common attributes and differences
- evaluate if the algorithms are appicable for TDD/FDD, MIMO
Future radio communication systems for 5G and Industry4.0 aim to overcome OFDM shortcomings like high Out-of-Band radiation and high sensitivity to timing and frequency offsets. Moreover ultra high reliability and ultra low latency requirements pose additional challenges on waveform design. UFMC, like FBMC and GFDM, as a candidate waveform  targets those goals.
Project Goals
- Literature research starting with given papers and diving into the topic.
- implement investigated algorithms in a scripting language.
- evaluate synchronization performance and complexity
Prior knowledge
- attended lecture(s) in the field of Communication Engineering or related topics.
- interest in learning how to implement theoretical work in software.
- interest in learning and understanding complicated math topics.
