Abstract:

This report describes the VLSI design and implementation of a Viterbi algorithm processor for simultaneous data demodulation and phase tracking of Minimum Shift Keying signal. During the 1981-82 academic year, graduate students in the VLSI course at UCLA designed the implementation of this system as a one-year class project, and with support from ARPA Advanced Research Project Agency of the Department of Defense, fabricated this processor on a single chip, using 4-micron NMOS technology. UCLA Demodulation Engine can be used as an inexpensive digital radio receiver in a variety of applications. Author
