Abstract

Due to the growing demands of mobile communication system users, higher peak data bit rates of up to 1 Gbps are being sought. As a result, the Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-Advanced) as an advanced standard for mobile communication systems was created by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). On the physical layer (PYH), the most recent LTE-Advanced characteristics have been released. In addition to turbo coding, the Downlink uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), whereas the Uplink uses Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SC-FDMA). This study uses MATLAB to simulate the LTE-Advanced PYH downlink transceiver in accordance with 3GPP Release 10. The Intra-band contiguous Carrier Aggregation type with two Component Carriers was used to replicate all steps of the LTE-Advanced downlink PYH transceiver, including Time and Frequency Synchronization in the receiver.
