Paper Abstract

We present a pilot symbol-assisted beamforming algorithm and a simulation tool of smart antennas for Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) in reverse link. In the 3GPP WCDMA system smart antenna technology has more room to play with than in the second generation wireless mobile systems such as IS-95 because the pilot symbol in Dedicated Physical Control Channel (DPCCH) can be utilized. First we show a smart antenna structure and adaptation algorithms, and then we explain a low-level smart antenna implementation using Simulink and MATLAB. In the design of our smart antenna system we pay special attention for the easiness of the interface to the baseband modem; Our ultimate goal is to implement a baseband smart antenna chip sets that can easily be added to to-be-existed baseband WCDMA modem units.
