A new wide-band mobile channel emulator for the CODIT project is designed and implemented. The UMTS code-division testbed (CODIT R2020) is a research project within the European RACE-II program set up by the Commission of the European Community. Our goal is to be able to simulate in the laboratory, in real time, the multipath propagation found in the mobile radio channel. As code-division multiple access (CDMA) is the access technique within the CODIT project, it was realized that the channel emulator must have simultaneously good delay resolution between propagation paths and long duration of the impulse response. These considerations led to a very flexible channel emulator specifically designed to host the new wide-band channel models developed within the CODIT project. Our emulator features three independent inputs and two outputs, up to 20 complex propagation paths, 10-MHz radio frequency (RF) bandwidth, a delay resolution of 50 ns, and a maximum duration of the channel impulse response of 80 μs. Starting with an explanation of the global structure of the new channel emulator, we derive the optimum design of the interpolation procedures and present the main implementation issues arising from our initial architecture. Finally, we report the results of the laboratory tests of the first prototype of the channel emulator.
