ELC 431 WiFi Project
You want to —
To create a system to receive a WiFi signal at a distance to be decided by you. (Everyone’s system should be different).
The system is to operate at 38 GHz.
You can base the performance of your WiFi components on available equipment for the lower WiFi frequency bands.
Discuss WiFi protocol and understand modulation techniques.
Determine the signal levels at different points in your system.
Consider different antenna designs and gains.
Design a system for a specific Wi-Fi protocol.
Calculate the maximum distance of operation.
Determine factors affecting the system such as noise figure, minimal detectable signal (MDS), free space path loss and receive sensitivity.
