Paper Abstract

Today and next generation optical coherent systems rely more and more in DSP algorithms to improve capacity, spectral efficiency and fiber impairments mitigation. The amount of signal processing is remarkable, and because of that ASICs are preferable in order to comply with cost, power consumption and size, required in OIF 100G optical module standards. One important step in the ASIC development process is the validation of the DSP algorithms mathematical models in a high level language that consider HW characteristics and constrains. In this work we present, compare and evaluate in experimental data the mathematical model developed in Matlab and the SystemC model developed in C++. The DSP algorithms functionalities implemented were orthonormalization, CD equalizer, clock recovery, dynamic equalizer, frequency offset and phase estimation. The SystemC model considers clock signals, reset/enable structures, parallelization, finite fixed-point operations and structures that are closer to the ASIC HW implementation; due to these restrictions the performance is not as good as the mathematical modeling. The DSP algorithms models are evaluated in two 112 Gbit/s DP-QPSK experimental scenarios. In the first scenario the models are evaluated in back-to-back with ASE noise loading; in the second scenario the models are compared in a 226km optical fiber recirculation loop, with 80x112 Gbit/s DP-QPSK channels (8.96 Tbit/s). In the back-to-back experiment the OSNR penalty from the mathematical model to the SystemC model is only 1,0dB and in the recirculation loop the maximum reach is 2,600 km and 2,200 km for the Matlab and SystemC models respectively.
