24K FFT for 3GPP LTE RACH detection

Posted: 30 Jan 2009 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:LTE 3GPP? detection RACH? FFT 24K?

In 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE), the user equipment (UE) transmits a random access channel (RACH) on the uplink to gain access to the network. One method to extract this UE RACH signal at the basestation is to perform a 24K FFT on the received data, allowing the desired bands to be extracted in the frequency domain.

This reference design demonstrates that you can perform large FFT transforms on Altera FPGAs. This application note describes how a 24K point transform may be decomposed into three 8,192 point transforms and then implemented efficiently using a multiple channel FFT architecture.
