We employ the decision-feedback differential detection method to detectMDPSK signals. An "; error signal"; is used toupdate the tap weights and the estimated codedelay. Increasing the number of feedbacksymbols can improve the performance of theproposed non coherent receiver. For an infinitenumber of feedback symbols, the optimumweight can be derived analytically, and theperformance of the proposed non coherentreceiver approaches to that of the conventionalcoherent receiver. Simulations show goodagreement with the theoretical derivation.Keywords -Optimum weights, pn code, DS-CDMAI. INTRODUCTIONCode division multiple access is used totransmit many signals on the same frequency at thesame time. A non coherent receiver with PN codetracking is used for direct sequence code divisionmultiple access (DS-CDMA) communicationsystems. In spread spectrum communicationsynchronization is necessary for transmitting andreceiving ends.If it is out of synchronizationinsufficient signal energy will reach the receiver.Forbetter synchronization of the system code trackingtechnique is used pn code tracking is applied forcoherent and noncoherent cases.In coherent case atthe demodulator,the coherent carrier reference isgenerated.It is difficult to generate coherentreference at low s/n ratio.The loss of noncoherent detection comparedwith conventional coherent detection is limited andcan be adjusted by the generation of the referencesymbolfor the decision feedback differentialdetection. The performance of noncoherent receivercan approach the performance of conventionalcoherent receiver when infinite number of feedbacksare used.At first we have generated the spread spectrumsignal. The original binary sequence is taken andbinary phase shift keying is done to the signal and tomake the calculations easier we are using fastfourier transform.The BPSK signal is multipliedwith pn code to get the respective spread spectrumsignal.The signal is received at the receiver throughAGWN channel.Then the signal is transferredthrough adaptive filter as shown in figure 1.1.Adaptive filter minimizes the error between somedesired signal and some reference signal.It designsitself based on the characteristics of input signal,byadjusting the tap weightsII. ADAPTIVE FILTERAn adaptive filter is a filter that self-adjusts its transfer function according to anoptimization algorithm driven by an error signal.Because of the complexity of the optimizationalgorithms, most adaptive filters are digital filters.Fig 1.1:adaptive filterTo start the discussion of the block diagram we takethe following assumptions:i. The input signal is the sum of a desiredsignal d(n) and interfering noise v(n)x(n)=d(n)+v(n)ii. The variable filter has a Finite ImpulseResponse (FIR) structure. For such structuresthe impulse response is equal to the filtercoefficients. The coefficients for a filter oforder p are defined as      Tnnnn pwwww ,...,1,0 .The error signal or cost function is the differencebetween the desired and the estimated signal)()()( ndndneThe variable filter estimates the desired signal byconvolving the input signal with the impulseresponse. In vector notation this is expressed asD^(n)=wn*x(n)Where, X(n) = [ x(n),x(n-1),------x(n-p)]Tis an inputsignal vector.Moreover, the variable filter updates the filtercoefficients at every time instantWn+1= Wn + ΔWn

LMS andRLS define two different coefficient updatealgorithms.Fig 1.2:The conventional coherent receiver-jointdetection and pn code trackingAs compared with the fig 1.2 and 1.3,there exists achange that reference symbol is added on the feedback side for non coherent receiver.Fig 1.3:The proposed noncoherent differentialdetection receiver with pn code trackingAs at the receiver the demodulation process is doneand that signal is multiplied with the reference pnsignal to get the original signal.III. ANALYSISIn the CDMA system, the base stationtransmits K data vectors of active users. Each user,k,transmits a data symbol sequence {bk(n)},k = 1,....,K, which consists of independent and identicallydistributedM-ary PSK symbols at symbol intervalTs, i.e.,bk(n) ∈ {ej2πν/M | ν ∈(0, 1, .....,M − 1)}. Thedata symbol sequences of different users areindependent. The actual data rate may be varied dueto the service provided or the actual transmissionconditions. Each data symbol bk(n) of user k is firstoversampled by a spreading factor Lcand theresulting vector is multiplied element-by-element bythe elements of PN spreading code sequence {pk(l)},k = 1, ....,K, which consists of Lcin general complexchips at chip interval Tcand satisfies the relationTc=Ts/Lc. The transmitted baseband spreadspectrumsignal is defined asS(t)= 10KKn)()( skk nTtPNnb (1)where bk(n) is the information-bearing symbol ofthe k-th user, and PNk(t) is a wideband PN sequencedefined by PNk(t) = _Lc−1 l=0 pk(l)Ψ(t − lTc)where pk(l) ∈ {•}1}is the l-th element of the PNcode of user k, and Ψ(t) is the chip waveform. TheCDMA downlink signal is then transmitted througha multipath channel. In the digital DSCDMAreceiver, the incoming waveform is downconvertedin quadrature and sampled at the Nyquist rate. Thebandwidth of PN code is approximately 1/Tc. TheNyquist sampling interval is Td,Td = Tc/D, where Dis the number of samples during one chip duration inthe receiver. Therefore, the number of samples inone symbol duration is DLc. In general, the discrete-time channel is modeled relative to the bandwidth ofthe DS waveform.A multipath channel can be represented bya tapped-delay-line with spacing equal to 1/DB,where B is the signal bandwidth. Thus, the channelcan be modeled as an FIR filter of length Ln whoseimpulse response is {hi}Ln−1 0 . ISI arises for Lngreater than one, and MAI arises due to channeldistortion or non-orthogonal spreading code or both.We assume that the channel order Ln _ DLcsince themaximum delay spread of the channel is usuallyinsignificant in relative to the symbol period Ts.

The PNcode samples generated in the receiver arerepresented by {ci} which is obtained by samplingPNk(t) and ci = PNk(iTd−τ ) where τ is the codedelay which can be adapted to track the true codedelay τ0. Our problem is to design an adaptive filter{wi} that estimates (or predicts) the desired signal.In the same time, we estimate the code delay τ0 toachieve code synchronization.The conventional coherent receiver withPN code tracking is shown in Fig. 1.2.

To achieve thisgoal we can use the cost functionJcoh = E[ddif(n) –d dif(n)]2(9)Where dcoh(n) is the hard decision result ofdcoh(n).Let ecoh(n) = dcoh(n) −d coh(n) be the error signal,the cost function Jcohcan be written asJcoh=E[dcoh(n)d*coh(n)-[dcoh(n)CT(n)UT(n)W(n)/β-d*coh(n)WH(n)U(n)C(n)/β+C(n)U(n)WH(n)CT(n)UH(n)W(n)/β2](10)Where (・)∗denotes complex conjugation. When theLMS algorithm is used to minimize the costfunction Jcoh, we need to compute∂Jcoh ∂W = −2 β e∗coh(n)U(n)C(n) and∂Jcoh/∂τ = -dcoh(n) ∂CT(n)/∂τUH(n)W(n)/(β-d*coh(n)U(n)WH(n)∂C(n)/∂τ)β+WH(n)U(n)(∂C(n)/∂τCT(n)+C(n)∂CT(n)/∂τ)×UH(n)W(n)/β2) (11)The tap weight of the adaptive filter is thus updatedbyW(n+1)=W(n) -μ∂Jcoh/∂w= W(n) +μ[2/β e*coh(n)U(n)C(n) ] (12)Where, μ is the step-size. The code delay τ isupdated through τ (n+1) = τ (n)−λ∂Jcoh ∂τ where λis the step-size. The quantity −∂Jcoh ∂τ can beregarded as an “error signal”, estimating the chip-timing error of a code tracking loop.Fig. 1.3 showsthe block diagram of the proposed noncoherentreceiver that combines the differential detectionwith PN code tracking for DS-CDMA systems. Theinformation sequence {ak(n)} is first differentiallyencoded. The resulting MDPSK symbols bk(n) aregiven bybk(n)=ak(n)bk(n-1) (13)and the transmitted signal model is the same as (1).The received sample sequence {ri} is also expressedas (2). Here, the constant phase shift Θ is unknown.At the receiver, the sampled signals are first passedthrough the transversal filter and then despreaded bythe local PN sequence. The tap weight vector W(n),local PN code vector C(n), and the received samplematrix U(n) can be described as equations (3), (4),and (5), respectively. The normalized despreaderoutput q(n) is the same as (8), and can berepresented asq(n) = WH(n)U(n)C(n)/β.In the next stage, the differential detection isnecessary to recover the MDPSK informationsequence. The decision variable ddif(n) is obtainedby noncoherent processing of the despreader outputq(n),ddif(n) = q(n)q∗ref(n − 1) where the referencesymbol qref(n − 1) is generated as followsqk(n-1)=1/N-111NIq(n-1) 11jmddif(n-m) (14)whereN,N ≥ 2, is the number of despreader outputsymbols used to calculate ddif(n). ddif(n) is the harddecision result of ddif(n). Note that for N = 2, qref(n− 1) = q(n − 1), ddif(n) is the decision variable of aconventional differential detection. However, for N>2, a significant performance improvement can beobtained. We can use the cost functionJdif=E[ddif(n) -d dif(n)]2The error signal can be defined as edif(n) def=ddif(n) − ˆ ddif(n). Here, edif(n) at the n-th symboltime also depends on past tap weight vectorsW(n−ν), ν ≥ 1. For the derivation of the adaptivealgorithm, these past tap weight vectors are treatedas constants since |edif(n)|2 is differentiated onlywith respect to W(n). The cost function ofdifferential detection Jdifcan be written asJdif =E[ddif(n)d*dif(n)-ddif(n)qref(n-1)/βCT(n)UH(n)xW(n)-d*dif(n)q*ref(n-1)/βC(n)U(n)WH(n)+qref(n-1)2/β2CT(n)UH(n)W(n)C(n)U(n)WH(n) (15)The gradient of the cost function with respect to thetap weight vector is∂Jdif/∂W =-2/βq*ref(n-1)d*dif(n) U(n)C(n)+2/β2 qref(n-1)2U(n)C(n)CT(n)UH(n)W(n)=-2/βq*ref(n-1)e*dif(n)U(n)C(n) (16)and the gradient of the cost function with respect tothe code delay is∂Jdif/∂τ=-ddif(n)qref(n-1)/β ∂CT(n)/∂τ UH(n)W(n)-d*dif(n)q*ref(n-1)/β )WH(n)U(n)∂C(n)/∂τ+qref(n-1)2/β2WH(n)U(n)×(∂C(n)/∂τ CT(n)+C(n)∂ CT(n)/∂τ) UH(n)W(n) (17)

SIMULATION RESULTSFrom the fig 4.1 I have mentioned the fft ofspread spectrum signal, which is transmitted throughAGWN channel. After the signal reaches thereceiver it passes through adaptive filter whichadjusts itself according to tap weights.Fig 4.1:FFT Of Spread Spectrum SignalTransmittedFig 4.2: Adaptive Filter OutputFig 4.3: Signal Error RateFig 4.4:Noncoherent Receiver ResponseFrom fig 4.3 it was analysed that as thenumber of iterations increased, the error ratedecreased at linear phase and remains constant.From fig 4.4 it is analysed that as E/N ratioincreases,then SER decreases accordingly.In thissimulation we are using matlab and analysingSERvs E/N, number of iterations vs error rate andalso I have shown the spread spectrum signal andthe output of adaptive filter.IV. CONCLUSIONA novel noncoherent receiver for jointtiming recovery and data detection in DS-CDMAsystems is proposed in this work. It estimates thedesired signal and code delay by LMS algorithm atthe same time. The MMSE solution of the proposedreceiver is analyzed theoretically and by computersimulations. Three different chip waveforms aresimulated in two different multipath channels withdifferent numbers of active users. It is shown thatthe timing offset can be rapidly tracked even if themismatch is up to half chip time interval. The loss ofnoncoherent detection compared with conventionalcoherent detection is limited and can be adjusted viathe generation of the reference symbol for thedecision-feedback differential detection. Theperformance of the noncoherent receiver canapproach the performance of the conventionalcoherent receiver if an infinite number of feedbacksymbols is used, as has been shown analytically.Furthermore, simulations show that the proposedreceiver in an asynchronous situation approaches theperformance as that of the receivers with perfectsynchronization.V.
