800 mhz analog cdma cellular phones

  1. 1. How cell phones work Julia Wang Derek Juang Derrick Chou Andy Ng Jed Kim
  2. 2. Cellular Phones: The Facts <ul><li>400 million cell users in the world </li></ul><ul><li>60% of Europeans </li></ul><ul><li>40% of Americans </li></ul><ul><li>20% of US teenagers (more girls than boys) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Cell Phone = Radio? <ul><li>Combination of telephone and radio ideas </li></ul><ul><li>First mobile communications: “radio telephone” </li></ul><ul><li>Requires powerful transmitter; minimal channels </li></ul>
  4. 4. Millions of Users, Millions of Frequencies? <ul><li>Typical analog carrier has 832 frequencies </li></ul><ul><li>Division of coverage area into “cells” </li></ul><ul><li>Each cell about 10 miles (26 km) </li></ul><ul><li>Frequency reuse in each cell allows millions of simultaneous users </li></ul>
  5. 5. Inside the Cell Phone <ul><li>Components: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Circuit board </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Antenna </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Liquid Crystal Display </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keyboard </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Microphone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Speaker </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Battery </li></ul></ul>One of the most intricate devices used daily Copyright © 1998-2002 Howstuffworks, Inc.

  9. 9. Cellular Access Technologies <ul><li>The 3 most common cell-phone network technologies for transmitting information are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Allows for multiple access by splitting calls </li></ul>
  10. 10. FDMA <ul><li>FDMA puts each call on a separate frequency </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Separates spectrum into distinct channels by splitting it into uniform bands of bandwidth </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mainly used for analog transmission </li></ul><ul><li>Capable of carrying digital information, but not an efficient method for that type of transmission </li></ul>
  11. 11. FDMA Diagram
  12. 12. TDMA <ul><li>With TDMA, a narrow band that has a bandwidth of 30 kHz and is 6.7 ms long is split time-wise into three time slots </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each conversation gets to transmit for 1/3 of the time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Possible because voice data converted into digital information that is compressed allowing for less transmission time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Electronics Industry Alliance and Telecommunications Industry Association, IS-54 and IS-136 </li></ul><ul><li>3x capacity of analog system with same no. Channels </li></ul><ul><li>Operates at 800 MHz (IS-54) or 1900 MHz (IS-136) frequency bands </li></ul>
  13. 13. TDMA Diagram
  14. 14. TDMA/GSM <ul><li>TDMA is used as access technology for GSM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Implemented in a different and incompatible way from IS-136 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Uses encryption for more secure calls </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>900 MHz and 1800 MHz bands in Europe and Asia </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1900 MHz in United States </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>International standard for Europe, Australia, most of Asia and Africa. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SIM cards used to store connection data and identification no.’s required to access provider </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. CDMA <ul><li>After data is digitized, CDMA spreads it out over bandwidth (spread spectrum) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each call assigned unique sequence code, used to spread over bandwidth, and to recover signal at receiver </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple calls are put on top of each other </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CDMA systems require an accurate time-stamp on each piece of signal to recover signal, so it references the GPS for information </li></ul></ul><ul><li>8 to 10 calls can be carried on same channel space as an analog AMPS call </li></ul><ul><li>Basis for IS-95, operates in 800 MHz and 1900 MHz frequency bands </li></ul>

  17. 17. AMPS (Advanced Mobile Phone System) <ul><li>Analog cell phone standard, established in 1983 </li></ul><ul><li>First used in Chicago </li></ul><ul><li>Uses range of frequencies between 824Mhz and 894 MHz </li></ul><ul><li>Pair of frequencies, one for transmit and one for receive create one channel </li></ul><ul><li>Standard analog voice channel - 30kHz, comparable to a wired telephone </li></ul>
  18. 18. AMPS (Advanced Mobile Phone System) <ul><li>Transmit and receive frequencies are separated by 45 MHz </li></ul><ul><li>Only operate in the 800 MHz band; therefore, not many features (like email, web browsing) offered </li></ul>
  19. 19. Analog vs. Digital <ul><li>Analog </li></ul><ul><li>Thomas Edison – phonograph </li></ul><ul><li>sound collecting diaphragm-> needle-> rotating aluminum cylinder </li></ul><ul><li>Eventually modified to become the “modern” phonograph, signals are amplified electronically </li></ul><ul><li>Analog wave is vibration created by sound </li></ul><ul><li>Storage and playback of an analog wave – simple but fidelity is not very good </li></ul><ul><li>Fidelity – the similarity between the original signal and the reproduced signal </li></ul>
  20. 20. Analog vs. Digital <ul><li>Digital </li></ul><ul><li>Goal was to create a recording with very high fidelity and perfect reproduction </li></ul><ul><li>Converts analog wave into a stream of numbers and records the numbers and not the wave </li></ul><ul><li>Analog to digital converter (ADC) </li></ul><ul><li>Digital to analog converter (DAC) </li></ul><ul><li>Sampling rate, sampling precision </li></ul><ul><li>Amount of digital data goes up significantly </li></ul>
  21. 21. Analog vs. Digital LOW sample rate and sampling precision HIGH sample rate and sampling precision
  22. 22. Digital technology <ul><li>Same radio technology as analog but different way of compressing the voice </li></ul><ul><li>Easier to compress and manipulate to fit more channels within a given bandwidth, more efficient </li></ul><ul><li>Converts voice signal into binary information(1s and 0s) and then compression of it allows between 3 to 10 digital cell phone calls to occupy the space of a 1 analog call </li></ul>
  23. 23. Digital Technology <ul><li>Frequency-shift keying (FSK) </li></ul><ul><li>- uses two frequencies (one for 1s & the other for 0s) </li></ul><ul><li>- alternates between the two frequencies </li></ul><ul><li>modulation and encoding schemes </li></ul><ul><li>- convert the analog ->digital, compress it->analog </li></ul><ul><li>- acceptable level of voice quality maintained </li></ul><ul><li>Cell phones need a lot of processing power </li></ul>
