Simulation and Analysis of Phase Noise Distortion in RF Transceiver of IEEE 802.11a WLAN Bridge System
In this paper, simulation and analysis of phase noise distortion in Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) bridge system are presented. It is focused on the oscillator in RF transmitter and RF receiver in the transceiver. The effect of phase noise on the constellation error of RF transmitter and the receiver sensitivity of RF receiver is analyzed based on IEEE 802.11a standard. By this way, these analyses can be applied in early stage of oscillator design for RF transceiver of IEEE 802.11a WLAN system. RF behavioral models and Agilent Ptolemy simulator are used in Advanced Design System (ADS) software to perform simulation of constellation error and receiver sensitivity.
