# GSOC 14 project "Vector Network Analyzer"

Hi
I am Mitul Vekariya https://github.com/mitul93 - final year student of
Electronics and Communication (ECE) branch at Nirma University, India.
I am very interested in mentioned
.
I like digital signal processing, Embedded Linux, Digital Communication
and
RF designing.
I didn’t work on any USRP devices, but I have experience of FPGA
programming using VHDL and LabVIEW. I am familiar with SDR fundamentals
and

Regarding Project, I’ve found one good document
http://www2.ee.cityu.edu.hk/~sklmmw/apmtt/B2BJan14/day1/Agilent_VNA_AN_Basics_5965-7917E.PDFfrom
agilent.

Summary of what I understood from that document:

1. Using usrp b210 I can generate pure tone sine wave as test signal
2. I will connect DUT ( device under test ) with external components to
the
usrp and measure transmitted and reflected signal
3. The amplitude and phase of the received signal will lead to different
parameters

How can we measure phase between two sine waves using FPGA? The method
of
zero crossing is advised or not?
Please give you inputs on this project.

Thanks

Hi,
I want to measure phase between reference signal and signal coming from
DUT(Device Under Test). It may possible that due to non-linear
characteristic of the device, there are changes in frequency and
amplitude
of signal. In this case the method you mentioned will give correct
phase?

Thanks

Hi,

How can we measure phase between two sine waves using FPGA?

Supposing the two sine waves have the same frequency.
For two discrete complex signals, v1 and v2. we can compute the phase
difference as follow.

v3 = v1 * conj(v2)
phase diff = arctan(imag(v3) , real(v3))

(conj() means conjugate)

Taking the average of all datas may works
Airprobe uses this method to calculate the phase difference.

Best,
Zhenhua

Hi Martin
Thanks for the reply. Right now I am preparing draft for proposal. As
soon
as I finish my draft I will upload it so that mentors can evaluate it.
