ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

This thesis addresses two problems in digital baseband design of wireless communication systems, namely, those in Internet of Things (IoT) terminals that support long range communications and those in full-duplex systems that are designed for high spectral efficiency. IoT terminals for long range communications are typically based on Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) and spread spectrum technologies. In order to design an efficient baseband architecture for such terminals, the workload profiles of both systems are analyzed. Since frame detection unit has by far the highest computational load, a simple architecture that uses only a scalar datapath is proposed. To optimize …

Historically, wireless communication devices have been developed to process one specific waveform. In contrast, a modern cellular phone supports multiple waveforms corresponding to LTE, WCDMA(3G) and 2G standards. The selection of the network is controlled by software running on a general purpose processor, not by the user. Now, instead of selecting from a set of complete radios as in software controlled radio, what if the software could select the building blocks based on the user needs. This is the new software-defined flexible radio which would enable users to construct wireless systems that fit their needs, rather than forcing to use …
