Abstract

SAW filters have been applied to finite impulse response (FIR) modulation systems such as quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) and minimum shift key (MSK) because they offer precise time-domain symbol shaping which allows many different types of systems to be implemented with varying spectral confinement, time-domain envelope uniformity, and intersymbol interference. By using the combination of a digital message sequence, an impulse driver, and different SAW modulator filters, a SAW modulation system has been designed for experimental testing of a wide variety of quadrature binary modulation schemes. The RF test bed is characterized for system distortion, dynamic range, and spurious responses. Nine different SAW modulator filters having different time- and frequency-domain responses were designed and fabricated for use in the system. Several of the designs are representative of new modulation schemes which offer better spectral confinement and time-domain envelope uniformity than MSK. This paper presents results of the designed SAW quadrature binary modulation system. Excellent agreement between time- and frequency-domain measurements and theoretical predictions using the SAW modulation system are shown. In addition, the hardware test bed design is described and system optimization is discussed.
