Project : 1. Relay Station:Wimax16 e TDD & FDD (Oct 2011 – Aug 2014)

2. LTE L1(PHY) Development in FPGA(Aug 2014 – Feb 2015)

Project Descriptions: 1. It’s a WiMAX 16e based Fixed Relay system consisting of Master Relay and Mobile station. WiMAX 16e based Relay Communication System is designed to achieve coverage extension and capacity enhancement.

Relay system acts as both receiver and transmitter implemented on the same module(FPGA) . Base band and peripheral interface are developed on FPGA, Base band module which receives the digital packets from the DSP and generates

the wimax frame structures according to the wimax standard timing and transmits over the air, it’s also consists of SRIO interface design and CPRI interface design .

2. The project is aim for complete LTE L1 solution in FPGA. The model is generated using system generator. Four FPGAs are used, two for DL and two for UL. The communication between all the FPGAs is handled through SRIO interface. The FPGAs are communicating to L1 control software (GPP) through SRIO. The events and logging is Handled also through SRIO

Tools : Xilinx ISE 12.4, 13.4, Chipscope, Modelsim10.2 .

Platform : Virtex 5 LX155T, Virtex5 VLX110T, Virtex 5 XC5VSX95T

Role and contribution :

1. Architecture design for the Relay

2. RTL level VHDL and Verilog coding

a. Base Band development ( Base & Mobile Station )

b. CPRI Interface (Radiocomp and Signalion Radio)

c. Complete Vendor Specific Module for interfacing with Signalion radio.

d. SRIO Interface

3. Ownership of Independent L1 modules for DL and UL.

4. Merging the codes using system generator.

5. Functional Simulation for the entire system.

6. Carrying out the various test cases and verifying with the expected MATLAB dumps.

7. Handling the Events and Logging to the L1 control software.

8. Responsible for initial configuration support for all the FPGAs.

9. Functional simulation using model sim

10. Synthesis & and On-chip verification using Chipscope

11. Timing analysis and real time validation in the boards

12. Unit and System Integration testing
