Closer look at a direct sequence spread spectrum signal

Posted on Saturday, November 17th, 2012 in digital radio data, RF, tutorials by the machinegeek


Sebastian Westerhold draws our attention to his article taking a closer look at a direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) signal. Sebastian is holder of amateur radio license KF5OBS and is interested in experimenting with pseudorandom number generators. In his article he describes the generation of a pseudorandom binary sequence (PRBS) using a linear feedback shift register (LFSR). A LFSR is a shift register of which the input bit is a linear function of its previous state. The above photo depicts a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) made up from a a CMOS 4015 shift register and a 4030 XOR gate.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
