Title

A hardware implementation of a quadrature amplitude modulation communication system with MIMO applications

Abstract

"Quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) is a digital signaling scheme typically used in mobile applications. There are several problems that need to be considered when designing, building, and testing a modulator and demodulator pair; these problems include carrier synchronization, symbol synchronization, and word synchronization. This thesis will outline the design, building, and testing stages of a hardware implementation of a 16QAM modulator and demodulator. Simulations have been performed on the demodulator characteristics, including symbol error rate, work error rate, and timing error"--Abstract, leaf iii.
