  • Summary of proposal

    • Includes Proposal Update with release of specification 02/268 r3
      • Enhancements to the band plan
  • Update on the FCC Regulatory approval

Summary of Updated Proposal

Overview of Multi-band OFDM

  • Basic idea: divide spectrum into several 528 MHz bands.

  • Information is transmitted using OFDM modulation on each band.

    • OFDM carriers are efficiently generated using an 128-point IFFT/FFT.
    • Internal precision requirement is reduced by limiting the constellation size to QPSK.
  • Information is coded across all bands in use to exploit frequency diversity and provide robustness against multi-path and interference.

  • 60.6 ns prefix provides robustness against multi-path even in the worst channel environments.

  • 9.5 ns guard interval provides sufficient time for switching between bands.

Update to MB-OFDM band plan

  • Combine the advantages of FDMA and Time-Frequency Coding.

  • Divide the 7.5 GHz of spectrum into band groups that occupy spectrum of around 1584 MHz (3 bands).

    • 4 available TF Codes  support for up to 4 piconets per band group.
    • FDMA approach ensures better SOP performance.

Update to MB-OFDM Band plan

  • Updated band plan for 3.1 – 10.6 GHz allocation

    • There are 5 Band Groups:
      • Band group #1 is mandatory, remaining (#2 – #5) are optional.
    • Define 4 Time-Frequency coded Logical Channels for Band groups #1 – #4.
    • Define 2 Time-Frequency coded Logical Channels for Band group #5.
    • This yields 18 potential Logical Channels  support for 18 piconets.
    • Can avoid Band group #2 when interference from U-NII is present.

Update to MB-OFDM Band plan TF Code map

  • Mapping of TF Codes and Preambles to Logical Channels in a Band Group:

Update to MB-OFDM band plan SOP & RF Properties

  • Because of path loss, the maximum range that can be supported by each Band Group will be different, i.e.,

  • Rmax,1 > Rmax,2 > Rmax,3 > Rmax,4 > Rmax,5

  • Range differential can be used to advantage – for example:

    • For applications that require larger range (e.g. DVD to HDTV), use Band Group #1 or #2.
    • For applications that do not require quite as much range use Band Group #3, #4, or #5.
  • Efficiently uses spectrum for optimized SOP performance

Update to MB-OFDM Band plan Piconet Association

  • Band Group # 1 is mandatory

    • All devices must be able to tune to Band Group #1 and search for beacon.
  • Support for other Band Groups can be added over time.

  • When a device supports more than one Band Group, it should be able to scan for beacons in each of the different Band Groups supported by the device

    • Example: Start with Band Group #1 and look for a beacon. If no beacon is found, switch to Band Group #2 and look for a beacon, etc.
    • Similar operation to IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.15.3 devices.

Frequency Synthesis

  • All center frequencies can be generated using a single PLL.

    • Can use similar types of architectures as defined before for the Band Group #1:

Multi-band OFDMAdvantages (1)

  • Suitable for CMOS implementation (all components).

  • Only one transmit and one receive chain at all times, even in the presence of multi-path.

  • Antenna and pre-select filter are easier to design (can possibly use off-the-shelf components).

  • Early time to market!

  • Low cost, low power, and CMOS integrated solution leads to:

  • Early market adoption!

Multi-band OFDMAdvantages (2)

  • Inherent robustness in all the expected multipath environments.

  • Excellent robustness to ISM, U-NII, and other generic narrowband interference.

  • Ability to comply with world-wide regulations:

    • Bands and tones can be dynamically turned on/off to comply with changing regulations.
  • Coexistence with current and future systems:

    • Bands and tones can be dynamically turned on/off for enhanced coexistence with the other devices.
  • Scalability with process:

    • Digital section complexity/power scales with improvements in technology nodes (Moore’s Law).
    • Analog section complexity/power scales slowly with technology node.

Multi-band OFDM System Parameters

  • System parameters for mandatory and optional data rates:

Link Budget and Receiver Sensitivity

  • Assumption: Logical channel 1, AWGN, and 0 dBi gain at TX/RX antennas.

Multipath Performance

  • The distance at which the Multi-band OFDM system can achieve a PER of 8% for a 90% link success probability is tabulated below:

  • Notes:

  • Simulations includes losses due to front-end filtering, clipping at the DAC, DAC precision, ADC degradation, multi-path degradation, channel estimation, carrier tracking, packet acquisition, overlap and add of 32 samples (equivalent to 60.6 ns of multi-path protection), etc.

  • Increase in noise power due to overlap and add is compensated by increase in transmit power (1 dB)  same performance as an OFDM system using a cyclic prefix.

Simultaneously Operating Piconets Performance with TF Codes

  • Assumptions:

    • operating at a data rate of 110 Mbps with Band Group #1.
  • Simultaneously operating piconet (SOP) performance as a function of the multipath channel environments:

  • Results incorporate SIR estimation at the receiver.

Signal Robustness/Coexistence

  • Assumption: Received signal is 6 dB above sensitivity.

  • Value listed below are the required distance or power level needed to obtain a PER  8% for a 1024 byte packet at 110 Mb/s and a Band Group #1 device

  • Coexistence with 802.11a/b and Bluetooth is relatively straightforward because these bands are completely avoided with Band group #1 devices


  • Unit manufacturing cost (selected information):

    • Process: CMOS 90 nm technology node in 2005.
    • CMOS 90 nm production will be available from all major SC foundries by early 2004.
  • Die size for Band Group #1 device:

Power Consumption

  • Active CMOS power consumption

FCC Certification Update

FCC Update

  • Last meeting…

    • Presented analysis, simulation, and measurement results of interference into a C-band satellite receiver showing the MB-OFDM waveform causes less interference than an impulse radio already allowed under the current rules
  • Since the last meeting…

    • We have presented the results to both the FCC and NTIA
    • We have sent both a more detailed write-up of the testing procedures
    • Both the FCC and NTIA have decided to pursue their own testing to reconcile the claims from both sides
      • ITS initial estimate to complete the testing for NTIA was 9 months
      • FCC testing is targeting a significantly shorter period (on the order of a few months)
    • We have offered to support their testing by providing equipment as needed and review test plans or procedures as requested
      • We have provided feedback to ITS regarding their test plan (per NTIA request)
      • We will review FCC test procedures for their independent testing per FCC request

FCC Update

  • Implications…

    • FCC still maintains that the issue is about interference and not technicalities in the measurement procedure
    • FCC initially asked for this issue to be resolved within the IEEE
      • Several studies have been contributed to the IEEE
      • However, final decision must be made by the FCC (IEEE cannot make decisions that affect other spectrum-holders)
    • We have asked the FCC to make a ruling on this matter in a timely manner so that the UWB industry can move forward quickly
      • Practicality of doing this testing will likely take a few months
      • The FCC understands the need to close this issue quickly and is doing everything they can to speed up this process


  • Updated band plan

    • Based on application requirements, wanted to provide better SOP performance than what is specified in Selection Criteria
      • FDMA with TF codes
      • 18 total piconet channels
    • Uses all available spectrum from 3.1 – 10.6 GHz
    • Eliminates 7 band (mode 2) from previous versions
  • FCC committed to addressing issue quickly

    • MBOA actively engaged with FCC to provide all requested information and resources
  • Minor changes yielding significant performance gain based on a mature and stable proposal
