Abstract: In an automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system capable of increasing the capacity of subscribers easily on the basis of changing of .Iadd.the .Iaddend.information transmission bit rate, spread codes obtained by multiplying orthogonal spread codes (m in number) by a pseudo-random noise series are assigned to individual channels in the same cell in such a manner that the orthogonal spread codes are multiplied by some types of pseudo-random noise series having different phases, thereby making it possible to maintain the number of channels in the same cell at a value which is a multiple of the number of the orthogonal spread codes. Through this, in the case where the transmission bit rate is halved as compared to the presently existing rate in the future, assignment of spread codes which are increased in number to as large a value as necessary can be achieved and the subscriber's capacity can be increased within a range in which the necessary quality can be maintained even when link paths for m or more channels are set up in one cell from the viewpoint of Signal to Interference Ratio.

Description: BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to an automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system in which the number of channels can be increased easily.

2. Description of the Related Art

In recent years, automobile on-board and/or portable telephone systems of .Iadd.the .Iaddend.code division multiple access (CDMA) type have been developed for practical use as described in a paper "On the System Design Aspects of Code DivisionMultiple Access (CDMA) Applied to Digital Cellular and Personal Communications Networks", May 19-22, 1991, IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference. A conventional example of the construction of the automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system.Iadd.the .Iaddend.of CDMA type is shown in FIG. 3. In the Figure, reference numeral 1 designates units at the transmitter side such as a base station and 2 units at the receiver side such as an automobile on-board telephone or a portable telephone. Denoted by reference numerals 3, 4 and 5 are information input lines which are provided, in the units at the transmitter side 1, in correspondence to channel numbers assigned to individual users and to which information from the individual users isinputted, the information input lines 3, 4 and 5 corresponding to channel numbers #1, #2 and #3, respectively. Reference numerals 6, 7 and 8 designate spread modulators connected to the information input lines 3, 4 and 5, respectively, and operative toperform spread processings in accordance with spread .[.code.]. .Iadd.codes .Iaddend.corresponding to the individual channel numbers, and reference numeral 9 designates a combiner for synthesis and transmission of spread signals of a plurality of users. Denoted by reference numeral 10 is .[.an.]. .Iadd.a .Iaddend.despreader adapted to perform, in the units at the receiver side 2, a despread processing in accordance with a spread code of a channel assigned to each user. In the units at the transmitterside 1, the spread modulators 6, 7 and 8 are supplied with parameters W1(t), W2(t) and Wm(t) representative of orthogonal spread codes, respectively, and a parameter PN(t) representative of a pseudo-random noise series, and the orthogonal spread codesare multiplied by the pseudo-random noise series to produce spread codes corresponding to the individual channels and spread processings are carried out in accordance with the spread codes. In the following description, the pseudo-random noise series isreferred to as .Iadd.the .Iaddend."PN" series. In the units at the receiver side 2, each equipment has .[.an.]. .Iadd.a .Iaddend.despreader 10 and when the channel number of the units at the receiver side 2 shown in FIG. 3 is #i, that despreader 10 issupplied with a parameter Wi(t) representative of an orthogonal spread code and the parameter PN(t) representative of the PN series to perform a despread processing in accordance with a spread code corresponding to that channel. To perform the spreadand despread processings as above, spread codes as exemplified in FIG. 4 are used inside a certain cell in correspondence to channel numbers assigned to individual users.

In the automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system constructed as above, when user information is inputted from each information input line 3, 4 or 5 at a predetermined information transmission bit rate, for example, B(bps), a spreadprocessing is carried out, in the units at the transmitter side 1, by the spread modulator 6, 7 or 8 in accordance with a spread code corresponding to a channel number assigned to a user of interest and then spread signals of a plurality of users arecombined in the combiner 9 and transmitted. On the other hand, when a combined spread signal is received in the units at the receiver side 2, the combined spread signal is subjected to a despread processing by the despreader 10 in accordance with aspread code of a channel number assigned to each user to reproduce the information at the information transmission bit rate B(bps) and the reproduced information is delivered out through an information output line 11.

Waveforms are changed as shown in FIGS. 5 to 7 when a signal representative of user information received at a certain information transmission bit rate is subjected to a spread processing, transmitted and then subjected to despread. The userinformation inputted from the information input line 3, 4 or 5 has the form of a spectrum signal 12 having a bandwidth of B and a power spectrum density of P. When this spectrum signal 12 undergoes a spread processing in the spread modulator 6, 7 or 8,power in the bandwidth B is spread to a spread bandwidth S of a spread multiplexed spectrum on a link path as shown in FIG. 6 to provide a spread signal 13 shown therein. Since the spread modulators 6, 7 and 8 correspond to channel numbers assigned tothe individual users and the spread codes are set to different values in correspondence to the respective channel numbers as shown in FIG. 4, the spread signal 13 differs from channel to channel to assume a multiplexed structure. FIG. 6 shows an exampleof .Iadd.a .Iaddend.4-channel spread multiplexed spectrum.

When the spread signal 13 as above is subjected to a despread processing in the units at the receiver side 2, the despread processing is carried out in the units at the receiver side 2 under the condition that the orthogonal spread code is Wi(t)and the PN series is PN(t) and consequently, of the 4-channel spread multiple spectrum, a spread signal of a channel corresponding to this spread code, that is, the power of a desired wave, is again concentrated in the bandwidth B and multiplexed signalsof the other users (for three channels) remain spread waveforms which exist as interference waves. Then when the multiplexed spectrum is filtered to pass the band B in the units at the receiver side 2, there .[.result.]. .Iadd.results .Iaddend.adesired wave 14 subject to the despread and a spectrum of interference wave 15. As long as the ratio between power of the desired wave 14 and power of the interference wave 15, that is, the signal to interference ratio (SIR) can be maintained at apredetermined value, .Iadd.the .Iaddend.necessary quality of communication can be maintained.

Also, when B=9600, that is, the information transmission bit rate is 9600 bps, a maximum of 64 channels can be set within a range in which the SIR can be maintained at a predetermined value from the viewpoint of coping with the interference andthere is available an example of an automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system using 64 kinds of Walsh codes representative of orthogonal spread .[.code.]. .Iadd.codes.Iaddend..

In the aforementioned conventional automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system, however, the maximum .[.channel.]. .Iadd.number of channels .Iaddend.of the outbound link path (a link path .[.bound.]. from the base station to anautomobile on-board telephone or a portable telephone) in one cell is limited to the number of orthogonal spread codes (.[.assuming.]. .Iadd.assumed to be .Iaddend.m) and.Iadd., .Iaddend.for example, even .[.when a.]. .Iadd.if .Iaddend.voice signal.[.coded.]. .Iadd.coding .Iaddend.(coding/decoding unit) having a rate which is half the presently existing rate becomes applicable in the future in the field of communication, there will be a disadvantage .Iadd.in .Iaddend.that the .Iadd.subscriber.Iaddend.capacity .[.of subscribers.]. cannot be increased because of a shortage of .[.the number of assigned.]. codes or series in spite of the fact that link paths in excess of m channels .[.are.]. .Iadd.could be .Iaddend.set up in one cell from theviewpoint of the necessary SIR and the requisite quality .[.can.]. .Iadd.could .Iaddend.be maintained for performing communication.

More specifically, in the case where the information transmission bit rate is, for example, halved, the bandwidth becomes B/2 in a signal spectrum 16 of user information as shown in FIG. 8 and when this spectrum signal 16 having a power spectrumdensity of Po is subjected to a spread processing by the spread modulator 6, 7 or 8, power inside the bandwidth B/2 is spread to a spread bandwidth S of .Iadd.a .Iaddend.spread multiplexed spectrum on .Iadd.a .Iaddend.link path of FIG. 9 and thereresults a spread signal as shown in FIG. 9. Since as described previously the spread modulators 6, 7 and 8 are set with .[.values of.]. spread code .Iadd.values .Iaddend.which are different for .Iadd.different .Iaddend.channel numbers, the spreadsignal 17 differs for the individual channels and has a multiplexed structure. FIG. 9 shows an example of a 7-channel spread multiplexed spectrum.

When the spread signal 17 is subjected to a despread processing in the units at the receiver side 2, the despreader 10 performs the despread processing in accordance with Wi(t) representative of the orthogonal spread code and the PN(t)representative of the PN series and consequently, of the 7-channel spread multiplexed spectrum, a spread signal corresponding to this spread code, that is, .Iadd.the .Iaddend.power of a desired wave 18.Iadd., .Iaddend.is again concentrated to thebandwidth B/2 and the multiplexed signals of the other users (for 6 channels) remain spread waveforms which exist as interference waves 19. Then when the multiplexed spectrum is filtered to pass the band B in the units at the receiver side 2, there.[.result.]. .Iadd.results .Iaddend.a desired wave 18 subject to the despread and a spectrum of interference waves 19 as shown in FIG. 10. As long as the ratio between power of the desired wave 18 and power of the interference waves 19, that is, thesignal to interference ratio (SIR).Iadd., .Iaddend.can be maintained at a predetermined value, the necessary quality of communication can be maintained. In this case of half rate, since the SIR can be maintained at a predetermined value, the number ofthe interference waves 19 for maintaining the necessary communication quality can be increased to a value which is twice the presently existing rate. For simplicity of explanation, the number of multiplexed channels is small in the example (presentlyexisting) of FIGS. 5 to 7 and the example (in the future) of FIGS. 8 to 10 but actually the number of multiplexed channels is large (presently, 64 channels) and the number of multiplexed channels can be increased approximately twice (in this case,amounting up to 128 channels). Accordingly, if the capacity of subscribers is not increased but is left to be .Iadd.the .Iaddend.existing one, then the automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system will be used wastefully.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention is achieved in the light of the above problems and it is an object of the present invention to provide an automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system which can increase the capacity of subscribers easily on thebasis of, for example, changing of the information transmission bit rate.

According to the present invention, to accomplish the above object, spread codes resulting from multiplication of m orthogonal spread codes and a first PN series are assigned to channel numbers #1 to #m in the same cell, and spread codesresulting from multiplication of the same m orthogonal spread codes as above and a second PN series, which is of the same series as the first PN series but has a time phase differing from that of the first PN series by a constant phase, are assigned tochannel numbers #(m+1) to #2m.

In the present invention having the above construction, the PN series are subjected to multiplication while keeping the series unchanged but changing only the time phase to generate spread codes and the thus generated spread codes are assigned tothe channels, thereby ensuring that the number of channels in the same cell can be twice the number of the orthogonal spread codes. Accordingly, for example, .[.when a.]. .Iadd.if .Iaddend.voice signal .[.coded.]. .Iadd.coding .Iaddend.having a ratewhich is half the existing rate becomes applicable in the future, series which are as large in number as necessary can be assigned to increase the capacity of subscribers within a range in which the necessary quality can be maintained even when linkpaths in excess of m channels are set up in one cell from the viewpoint of the requisite SIR.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The present invention will now be described by way of example with reference to the accompanying drawings. FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing the construction of an automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system according to an embodimentof the present invention and FIG. 2 is a diagram showing a channel structure in the embodiment. In the Figure, reference numeral 21 designates units at the transmitter side such as a base station and 22 designates units at the receiver side such amobile station including an automobile on board telephone or a portable telephone. Denoted by reference numerals 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28 are information input lines which are provided, in the units at the transmitter side 21, in correspondence tochannel numbers assigned to individual users and to which information from the individual users is inputted, by 29, 30, 31, 32, 33 and 34 are spread modulators connected to the information input lines 23 to 28, respectively, and operative to performspread processings in accordance with spread codes corresponding to the individual channel numbers, and by 35 a combiner for combining and transmitting spread signals of users corresponding to channel numbers #1 to #2m. Of the information input lines 23to 28 and spread modulators 29 to 34, the information input lines 23 to 25 and spread modulators 29 to 31 are in association with the channel numbers #1 to #m to constitute a first channel group of m .[.series.]. .Iadd.channels .Iaddend.and informationinput lines 26 to 28 and spread modulators 32 to 34 are in association with the channel numbers #(m+1) to #2m to constitute a second channel group of m .[.series.]. .Iadd.channels.Iaddend.. Denoted by reference numeral 36 is a despreader adapted toperform, in the units at the receiver side 22, a despread processing in accordance with a spread code of a channel assigned to each user.

In the units at the transmitter side 21, the spread modulators 29, 30 and 31 of the first channel group are set so as to perform spread processings in accordance with the spread .[.code.]. .Iadd.codes .Iaddend.corresponding to the individualchannels by being supplied with parameters W1(t), W2(t) and Wm(t) representative of orthogonal spread codes (m is .[.a.]. .Iadd.the .Iaddend.number of the codes), respectively, and a parameter PN(t) representative of a PN series. The spread modulators32, 33 and 34 of the second channel group are set so as to perform spread processings in accordance with the spread codes corresponding to the individual channels by being supplied with the same parameters W1(t), W2(t) and Wm(t) representative oforthogonal spread codes as those for the spread modulators 29, 30 and 31 of the first channel group and a parameter PN(t-.phi.) representative of the PN series. The parameter PN(t-.phi.) representative of the PN series is of the same PN series as thatrepresented by PN(t) but has a time phase which differs from that of PN(t) by a constant phase. Through this, in the automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system of the present embodiment, a maximum of .[.m.]. .Iadd.2m .Iaddend.channels can beset on the outbound link path of one cell.

In the units at the receiver side 22, each equipment has .[.an.]. .Iadd.a .Iaddend.despreader 36 and when the channel number of the units at the receiver side 22 shown in FIG. 1 is #1, that despreader 36 is supplied with a parameter Wi(t)representative of an orthogonal spread code and a parameter PN(*) representative of the PN series, where PN(*) is

PN(*)=PN(t) when i.ltoreq.m, and

PN(*)=PN(t-.phi.) when i.gtoreq.m+1.

Then the orthogonal spread codes are multiplied by the PN series to produce spread codes and by performing a despread processing in accordance with a spread code corresponding to a channel of interest, a user signal destined for this apparatuscan be reproduced. A channel structure for performing the above spread and despread processings is shown in FIG. 2.

The operation of the automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system will now be described. In the units at the transmitter side 21, when user information is inputted from one of the information input lines 23 to 28 at a predeterminedtransmission bit rate, for example, B/2 (bps) which is the half of the rate B, a spread processing is carried out by one of the spread modulators 29 to 34 in accordance with a spread code corresponding to a channel number assigned to the user of interestand then spread signals of a plurality of users are combined in the combiner 35 and transmitted. On the other hand, when a combined spread signal is received in the units at the receiver side, the combined spread signal is subjected to a despreadprocessing by the despreader 36 in accordance with a spread code of the channel number assigned to that user to reproduce the information at the information transmission bit rate B (bps) and the reproduced information is delivered out through aninformation output line. When the signal indicative of the user information transmitted at the halved information transmission bit rate is subjected to the spread processing, transmitted and subjected to the despread .Iadd.processing.Iaddend., itswaveform is changed. The operational condition of the waveform change has already been described with reference to FIGS. 8 to 10 and will not be described herein.

Accordingly, for example, when a voice signal coded having a rate which is half the presently existing rate becomes applicable in the future, .[.channels of.]. a maximum of 2 m .Iadd.channels .Iaddend.can be set simultaneously if the requisitecommunication quality can be maintained in spite of the fact that link paths in excess of m channels are set up in one cell from the viewpoint of the necessary SIR, thereby making it possible to increase the capacity of subscribers without drasticallyimproving component units manufactured in correspondence to the existing automobile on-board and/or portable telephone system or exchanging all of the component .[.unit.]. .Iadd.units .Iaddend.with new ones. In order to maintain the communicationquality from the viewpoint of the necessary SIR, .[.a.]. .Iadd.the .Iaddend.maximum .[.value of the.]. number of link paths allowed to be set up simultaneously in the cell can be decided on the basis of information transmission bit rates for individualusers .[.set on.]. .Iadd.of .Iaddend.link paths set up in the units at the transmitter side 21 or the base station and .Iadd.the .Iaddend.setting of link paths for the users can be allowed within the maximum value.

In the foregoing embodiment, the PN series by which the orthogonal spreads are multiplied is exemplified to have two different phases, however, the number of phases can be determined .[.desirably.]. .Iadd.as desired.Iaddend.. For example, inthe case where service at a very low information transmission bit rate is given as a system and the user often receives the service, the requisite quality can be maintained from the viewpoint of the necessary SIR even when link paths are set up for verymany users in one cell. In such a system, three or more types of phases of the PN series by which the orthogonal spread code are multiplied can be employed instead of two types and hence the number of spread codes to be assigned can be increased to agreat extent to further increase the subscriber's capacity.

As described above, according to the present invention, different phases of the PN series by which the orthogonal spread codes are multiplied are given to provide some types of PN series so that the number of channels in the same cell may bemaintained at a value which is a multiple of the number of series and therefore in the case where a voice signal coded is applied at a rate which is half the presently existing rate in the future, assignment of spread codes which are increased in numberto as large a value as necessary can be achieved and the subscriber's capacity can be increased without drastically altering the components within a range in which the necessary quality can be maintained even when link paths for m or more channels areset up in one cell from the viewpoint of SIR.
