D1.2.2 Specification of the E3Network transceiver 2

Executive Summary

This report is the second edition of the “Specification of the E3Network transceiver”. It attempts an in-depth, detailed specification of the different subsystems of the proposed E3Network transceiver, considering both E-Band radio frequency/analogue front-end and digital base-band processing units, in order to provide the necessary inputs for various tasks to be performed in WP2 and WP3. The simulation results of WP2 and WP3 have been analysed and employed to update the initial specifications.

In the report, after a brief analysis of the components of a typical wireless communication system, the system requirements of the E3Network transceiver are defined and categorized as DoW, Network, Equipment and Implementation requirements.

Next, an outline of the architecture design is given, specifying partners responsible for implementing each sub-block of the general block diagram of the transceiver, along with the definition of the various subsystem interfaces and requirements. Details are also given on the duplexer filter arrangements which will separate transmitted and received signals, as well as on the network interface of the transceiver for providing connection to standard network equipment.



Furthermore, the architecture design, internal block interfaces and block requirements are defined for each of the digital base-band transmission, RF-analogue transmission, RF-analogue reception, digital base-band reception and signal generation units. The parameter estimator and controller at the transmitter and the receiver are described so as to guarantee fulfilment of certain power efficiency criteria. Finally, the transceiver demonstrator architecture is presented.
