This paper presents the design and measurement of a SAW device to be used in a correlator receiver for a differential phase shift keying direct sequence spread spectrum (DPSK/DSSS) system. The DPSK modulation format allows noncoherent data demodulation while the SAW device correlator acts as the despreading operator. In a conventional DPSK receiver, the received signal is normally split into a lower and upper path. One of the paths contains a correlator, and the other path contains a one data bit delay element and another correlator. The outputs of both paths are then fed to a noncoherent data demodulator. The device presented in this paper combines both the delay element and the two correlators in a single SAW device; therefore, a better temperature tracking mechanism, simplicity, as well as the elimination of the broadband SAW delay line are achieved. The SAW structure contains a broadband SAW transducer, and two serially coded pseudo noise (PN) DPSK filters. The SAW based correlator was built on lithium tantalate. The center frequency was set to 150 MHz, with a 63 chip PN spreading code and a data rate of 300 Kbps. Experimental measurements of the SAW device autocorrelation results are presented.
