TETRA MAC/PHY layer experimentation code

(C) 2010-2011 by Harald Welte

This code aims to implement the sending and receiving part of the

If you read the ETSI EN 300 392-2 (TETRA V+D Air Interface), you will
find this code implementing the parts between the MAC-blocks (called
type-1 bits) and the bits that go to the DQPSK-modulator (type-5 bits).

It is most useful to look at Figure 8.5, 8.6, 9.3 and 19.12 in conjunction
with this program.

You will need libosmocore ( to link.

== Demodulator ==


* contains a gnuradio based pi4/DQPSK demodulator, courtesy of KA1RBI


* call demodulator on a 'cfile' containing complex baseband samples


* use demodulator in realtime with a USRP1 SDR


* use demodulator in realtime with a USRP2 SDR

The output of the demodulator is a file containing one float value for each symbol,
containing the phase shift (in units of pi/4) relative to the previous symbol.

You can use the "float_to_bits" program to convert the float values to unpacked
bits, i.e. 1-bit-per-byte

== PHY/MAC layer ==

=== library code ===

Specifically, it implements:

* CRC16-CCITT (currently defunct/broken as we need it for
  non-octet-aligned bitfields)


* 16-state Rate-Compatible Punctured Convolutional (RCPC) coder


* Block interleaving (over a single block only)


* (30, 14) Reed-Muller code for the ACCH (broadcast block of
  each downlink burst)


* Scrambling


* Convolutional decoder for signalling and voice channels


* Routines to encode continuous normal and sync bursts


=== Receiver Program ===

The main receiver program 'tetra-rx' expects an input file containing a
stream of unpacked bits, i.e. 1-bit-per-byte.

=== Transmitter Program ===

The main program conv_enc_test.c generates a single continuous downlinc sync
burst (SB), contining:

* a SYNC-PDU as block 1
* a ACCESS-ASSIGN PDU as broadcast block
* a SYSINFO-PDU as block 2

Scrambling is set to 0 (no scrambling) for all elements of the burst.

It does not actually modulate and/or transmit yet.

== Quick example ==

# assuming you have generated a file samples.cfile at a sample rate of
# 195.312kHz (100MHz/512 == USRP2 at decimation 512)
