Paper Abstract

A direct conversion receiver is presented for HiperLAN2 system that uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) as its modulation scheme with data rate up to 54 Mbits/second. The direct conversion scheme converts the RF signal directly into a complex low-pass equivalent signal represented by in- phase (I) and quadrature (Q) components or so called I-Q base- band signal without any Intermediate Frequency (IF) stages and expensive Surface-Acoustic-Wave (SAW) filters. However, for a direct conversion receiver there are many key issues to be solved. One of the most important issues is so-called I-Q imbalance caused by the mismatch between I channel and Q channel of the quadrature demodulator. The I-Q imbalance may include gain and group delay difference between the I channel and the Q channel at any frequency within the low-pass signal bandwidth. With the patent-pending IQ-BalancingTM technology and other proprietary technologies of 4D Connect, inc., the adverse effects of I-Q imbalance on the receiver performance can be removed. Fixed-point simulation results for sensitivity performance and interference performance are presented. Performance comparisons when severe I-Q imbalance is present are also given.
