Abstract [en]

The Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) developed by Ettus research is emerging as one of the most promising hardware solution for building a Software Defined Radio (SDR) platform. Originally designed for supporting GNU radio, it can also be interfaced to customized C++ code, thus allowing a higher degree of flexibility in the design of the transceiver chain. In this paper we describe the implementation of a coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transceiver running over USRP2 boards. The baseband processing and the radio-frequency settings are designed for coping with a local area scenario as well as with the physical capabilities of the USRP2 boards. Moreover, a simple subcarrier blinding algorithm is proposed with the aim of compensating the common phase error in the symbol constellation due to the limited nominal accuracy of the local oscillators. Performance results show the effectiveness of the proposed architecture and settings for achieving Block Error Rate (BLER) results below 1% at 12 dB of Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) without requiring a high precision reference clock.
