## QUESTION 1 [15 marks]

Figure 1 shows a GSM receiver. An ideal amplifier J, operates at temperature 27 oC with
a bandwidth of 20 MHz. It is also given that amplifier J has an input signal power of
6.8x10-12 watt and has a power gain of 12 dB. Amplifier J is then cascaded with an
amplifier K, which has a noise figure of 5.5 dB and power gain of 8 dB.

(a)

Discuss what will happen to the signal quality in terms of signal-to-noise ratio
(SNR) as it passes through the amplifier J. Analyze the noise factor of the
amplifier J. Justify your answer by calculation. It is given that Boltzmanns
constant, K = 1.38 10-23 J/K.

(c)

## If a transmission line is inserted at point B as shown in Figure 1, determine the

power gain, noise factor and noise figure for the transmission line, so that the
overall gain is 22.5 dB. Then, determine the total noise figure of the receiver.
(Note: For a lossy transmission line, NFLdB if the transmission line is located in
an environment that is inhabitable by humans)

been sampled at 400k times per second. It is given that the sampled voice signal is ranged
between -10 V to +10 V with a resolution of four bits using linear quantization.

## If a cable with a minimum bandwidth of 3 MHz is used to transmit several voice

signals, where each of the signal has been sampled and quantized similar to the
voice signal above, calculate the number of voice signals that can fit through the
cable for transmission.

Calculate the signal to quantization noise ratio (SQR) and dynamic range for part
(b) and part (c). Use the first four voltage reading (the first four samples) of
Figure 2 for your SQR calculation and refer to your designed PCM codebook to
calculate the dynamic range. What can you observe from your calculation?

## QUESTION 4 [30 marks]

(a)

Code division multiple access system (CDMA) is required for 3 users namely user
A, user B and user C. The specification of this system is that the PN code is of
length 4 bits and the bipolar code is + 1 for when the data bit has a value of 1 and
-1 when the data bit has a value of 0. Your tasks are to:

(i)

Propose the set of pseudonoise (PN) codes for all the 3 users. Provide
justification for choosing the codes which you have proposed.
[3 marks]

(ii)

## Determine the transmitted CDMA signal if the users are sending

information bits as shown in the Table 1:

(iii) Use an appropriate technique if a fourth user D intend to decode user A's
time slot 1 from the transmitted CDMA signal. Justify your answer with
calculation.

(b)

A new TNB power plant has just been completed and you are assigned to design a
time division multiplexing system (TDM) for the communication requirement
with the head-quarters in Bangsar. The TDM system must carry two voice
channels, one music channel and 8 telemetry channels.

## Each of the analog

channels must be sampled at the Nyquist rate and uniformly quantized such that
the SQR is greater than 25 dB. The specifications of the various channels are as
follows : -

## Voice channel: Bandlimited to 4 kHz

Music channel : Bandlimited to 8 kHz
Telemetry channel : Synchronous digital with 14.4 kbits/s

Present your design using a block diagram and label all sub-components and
specifications of the TDM system which contain but not limited to A/D
specification, anti-aliasing filters bandwidth specification, commutator rotation
speed specification and transmission bandwidth.

(c)

## The communication requirement in part (b) is now transmitted using a frequency

division multiplexing system (FDM) based on single sideband suppressed carrier
(SSBSC) and quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK) modulation technique. The
carrier frequency allocated to you is 300 kHz and a guard band of 4 kHz is
provided to avoid inference with adjacent channels. Determine the output
