# Coarse Frequency and related stuff

Dear all,

I am trying to use the alamouti code implemented by trondeau.
Studying the gr_ofdm_frame_acquisition I found several concepts that
are not clear to me:

1. d_phase_count: what does it mean?

2. coarse_freq_comp(int freq_delta, int count): which is the meaning
of this function?

Thank you

Vanessa

Moreover, it’s not clear what channels are and how I should address
the 2 devices.

Thanks

Wow, this code is pretty old, and we never did finish it. I hope you get
it
working! I’d love to see the results.

1. d_phase_count: what does it mean?

We have a look up table for various phase rotations to use in the
calculations instead of recalculating them every time. This is the index
into the LUT.

1. coarse_freq_comp(int freq_delta, int count): which is the meaning
of this function?

If the frequency offset is larger than a subcarrier spacing, we want to
correct for that. Once the number of subcarrier offset is found, we use
this
function to recenter it. The fine frequency correct has already been
taken
care of to center the signals to the center of a subcarrier.

This is the integer number of subarriers (freq_delta) and the phase
correction per subcarrier.

Thank you

Yes I know… I am trying to implement alamouti and this is the only
thing that I have found… do you know about newer code? and/or
working one?

into the LUT.

In the code you never used “d_phase_lut”… so this explain a lot of
things…

Tom

Thanks

Do you remember which parts you did not implement?

Apparently make the alamouti work is harder than I though…

Thanks

I know that we got the 2x1 (2 TX and 1 RX) working, and we did 1x2 with
maximum ratio and equal gain (obviously not Alamouti). I know we were
close
with the 2x2 Alamouti, but we ran out of time and didn’t manage to track
down one of the major bugs. Neither of use has had time since to finish
it.

Tom

Thank you.
Unfortunately I am still trying to make the 2x1 working because I can
are always wrong. Did someone solve this problem?

Thank you
