Realization of Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) for LTE Under SISO Environment Using PlanAhead Tool and Virtex 5 FPGA
Long Term Evolution (LTE) permits mobile service providers to provide services in an efficient manner such that the data rate is increased with a wider bandwidth. The control channels of LTE include three channels namely Physical Downlink Control CHannel (PDCCH), Physical Hybrid Indicator CHannel (PHICH) and Physical Control Format Indicator CHannel (PCFICH). The PDCCH carries the DCI information which carries the information about the REs carrying the data, the type of modulation used and the scheduling assignments. This paper includes the transmitter and receiver processing of the DCI information. The simulation is done in Modelsim 6.4a and implemented in Plan Ahead 13.2 in Virtex 5.
