This is Naresh kumar.T from satellite and wireless group (C-DOT,Bangalore,India) , we are
using AD6636 (analog devices- down conversion chip) in our GSM design .
we need to calculate the Average power of digital samples(slot by slot)
taken output from AD6636, since the chip calculates the average power ,is
there any mechanism to read the power from the chip(to take the power output) ??
we are alternatively calculating the power of one slot (156 samples -GSM
slot) manually in FPGA (formula :(I^2 + Q^2)/156)where I and Q are the output
samples of AD6636 , is this the right way to calculate the power and what is
the procedure to map this value to the input power expressed in db ?
Thnx n Regards
