Abstract
The linear adaptive antenna arrays are examined in this report which are used at the mobile station for a typical Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA) cellular mobile communications system. The primary objective is to reduce co-channel interference of a wideband CDMA cellular network under a multi-path fading environment. Performance analysis of a randomly positioned mobile terminal with a randomly orientated adaptive antenna array in the forward channel (base-station to mobile) of a multi-cell DS-CDMA system is done and four performance boundaries, viz. BER, PSNR, BEAMWIDTH and SLL are established. A broadband adaptive array beamformer is proposed using harmonic nesting arrays and multirate sampling techniques. An harmonic nesting microphone array is designed to have several uniform linear sub arrays, each covering an octave frequency band. An adaptive beamformer following each subarrays is then implemented using a Generalized Sidelobe Canceler (GSC) structure.
