Introduction
DAB Network
2 Introduction
The R&S Signal Generator enables you to generate signals in accordance with the
Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB)/Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB)
standard.
To playback a signal from a waveform file created by the simulation software
R&S WinIQSIM2, the corresponding R&S WinIQSIM2 digital standard option must be
installed.
The generated signals are compliant with ETSI EN 300 401 standard. Via the userfriendly graphical interface of R&S Signal Generator, you can adjust several DAB signal parameters. You are enabled to generate a signal corresponding to one of the four
standard transport modes, Transmission Mode I, II, III or IV. You can also choose to
enable or disable channel coding, time interleaving and/or pseudo noise scrambling.
The R&S Signal Generator allows you to choose between different data sources. You
can either use some of the predefined data sources (two different pseudo noise
sequences, fixed all “0”, fixed all “1”) or you can use your own ETI (Ensemble Transport Interface) compliant source file. To create an ETI compliant source file, you can for
instance use the R&S STI Ensemble Mux DM001 or the R&S ETI Builder. However,
the ETI source file must fulfill some prerequisites.
The DAB system is designed for delivery of high-quality digital audio programs and
data services for mobile, portable and fixed reception from terrestrial or satellite transmitters in the Very High Frequency (VHF)/Ultra High Frequency (UHF) frequency
bands as well as for distribution through cable networks.
The DAB system is designed to provide spectrum and power efficient techniques in terrestrial transmitter network planning, known as the Single Frequency Network (SFN)
and the gap-filling technique. The DAB system is suitable for satellite as well as hybrid/
mixed terrestrial/satellite broadcasting, using a simple, nearly omni-directional receiving antenna. The DAB system meets the required sharing criteria with other radio communication services.
2.1 DAB Network
The figure bellow illustrates the outline of a DAB network.

DAB / T-DMB
Introduction
DAB Transmission System
The DAB network has three main parts: the service or service component provider, the
multiplex or ensemble provision and the transmission network provision.
The interfaces between these there blocks are scope of ETSI standards. The STI (Service Transport Interface) is defined to provide a standardized way of transporting DAB
service components, service information and control messages in a DAB collection
network.
The Ensemble Transport Interface (ETI) links the Multiplexer of the Ensemble Provider
with the transmitters of the Transmission Network Provider.
2.2 DAB Transmission System
The following block diagramm shows the components of the DAB transmission system.
Fig. 2-2: Components of the Transmission System DAB
The DAB transmission signal is defined as the sum of two signals; the main signal s (t)
and an optional signal sTII (t) as illustrated in the figure above.
2.3 Transport Mechanisms
The DAB system is designed to carry several digital audio signals together with data
signals. Audio and data signals are considered to be service components which can be
grouped together to form services.
The DAB system transmission frame consists of three different channels:
●
Main Service Channel (MSC)

DAB / T-DMB
Introduction
Transport Mechanisms
●
Fast Information Channel (FIC)
●
Synchronization Channel
2.3.1 Transmission channels
The MSC is a time-interleaved data channel used to carry the audio and data service
components, together with possible supporting and additional data service components. The MSC is divided into a number of sub-channels. Each of the sub-channels is
individually convolutionally coded with equal or unequal error protection. Each subchannel may carry one or more service components.
The FIC is a non time-interleaved data channel with fixed equal error correction. FIC
carries information about the organization of the MSC sub-channels, such as information on the multiplex structure and, when necessary, its reconfiguration. Optionally FIC
may include service information, conditional access management information and data
service.
The Synchronization Channel provides a phase reference and is used internally for
demodulator functions such as transmission frame synchronization, automatic frequency control, transmitter identification, and channel state estimation.
The Synchronization channel, the Fast Information Channel and the Main Service
Channel form a transmission frame (see figure 2-3). The MSC occupies the major part
of the transmission frame.
Fig. 2-3: DAB transmission frame
Each transmission frame is divided into a sequence of OFDM symbols, each symbol
consisting of a number of carriers.
The Fast Information Block (FIB) and the Common Interleaved Frame (CIF) are introduced in order to provide transmission mode independent data transport packages
associated with the FIC and MSC respectively.
The data, carried in the MSC, is divided at source into regular 24 ms bursts corresponding to the sub-channel data capacity of each CIF. The CIF contains 55 296 bits,
divided at 864 capacity units, 64 bits each.
Fast Information Block (FIB) is a data burst of 256 bits. The sequence of FIBs is carried by the Fast Information Channel FIC. The structure of the FIB is common to all
transmission modes.

DAB / T-DMB
Introduction
Pseudo Noise (PN) Scrambling
The synchronization channel symbols comprise the null symbol and the phase reference symbol. The null symbols are also used to allow a limited number of OFDM carriers to convey the Transmitter Identification Information (TII).
2.3.2 Transport Modes
Transmission mode is specific set of transmission parameters (e.g. number of carriers,
OFDM symbol duration). Four transmission modes (i.e. I, II, III and IV) are defined to
allow the system to be used for different network configurations and a range of operating frequencies. Depending on the transport mode, the transmission frame has different organization and length, i.e. the transmission frame is specific to the four transmission modes.
The table below gives the transmission frame duration and the number of FIBs and
CIFs which are associated with each transmission frame for the four transport modes.

2.4 Pseudo Noise (PN) Scrambling
Prior to convolution encoding, the transmitted signal can be scrambled by a modulo-2
addition with a pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS).
The PRBS polynomial is of degree 9 and specified as P(X) =x9+x5+1.
The initialization word is applied in such a way that the first bit of the PRBS is obtained
when the outputs of all shift register stages are set to value "1".
2.5 Convolutional Coding
The process of convolution coding is applied at the output of each PN scrambler. The
channel encoding process is based on punctured convolutional coding, which allows
both equal and unequal error protection. Unequal error protection (UEP) is designed
for audio services, equal error protection (EEP) for audio and data services. The sampling frequency is respectively 48 kHz and 24 kHz.
The convolutional coder is a punctured convolution code, based on a mother convolutional code with constraint length 7 and rate 1/4.
Operating Manual 1171.5531.12 ─ 14

DAB / T-DMB
Introduction
Time Interleaving
The generator polynomials are G1=(1,0,1,1,0,1,1), G2=(1,1,1,1,0,0,1),
G3=(1,1,0,0,1,0,1) and G4=(1,0,1,1,0,1,1).
To avoid the need for additional signaling overhead, the data in the FIC are encoded
with fixed, equal channel coding, with a constant 1/3 coding rate.
The puncturing procedures applied for the coding in the MSC is a combination of protection profile and protection level. There are number of permissible protection profiles
defined for each of the allowed bit rates. Each protection profile is associated with a
protection level. Protection level 1 is the highest level within the same profile.

2.6 Time Interleaving
Time interleaving is applied prior to block generation at the output of each convolutional encode contributing to the sub-channels in the MSC. It is not applied to the FIC.
The time interleaving process covers 16 CIFs, 24 ms each. This results in an overall
processing delay of 384 ms.

Table 3-1: Typical Applications
System Trigger
Application
"Sync. Output to External Trigger"
Common External Trigger event
for the master and the slave
instruments
All instruments are synchronous
to the external trigger event
ON
All instruments are synchronous
among themselves but starting
the signal from first symbol is
more important than synchronicity
with external trigger event
OFF
Internal trigger signal of the master R&S SMBV for the slave
instruments
All instruments are synchronous
among themselves
OFF
"On"
Corresponds to the default state of this parameter.
The signal calculation starts simultaneously with the external trigger
event but because of the instrument’s processing time the first samples are cut off and no signal is outputted. After elapsing of the internal processing time, the output signal is synchronous to the trigger
event.

[:SOURce<hw>]:BB:DAB:TRIGger:EXTernal:SYNChronize:OUTPut <Output>
(enabled for "Trigger Source" External)
Enables/disables output of the signal synchronous to the external trigger event.
Parameters:
<Output>
0 | 1 | OFF | ON
ON
The signal calculation starts simultaneously with the external
trigger event but because of the instrument’s processing time
the first samples are cut off and no signal is outputted. After
elapsing of the internal processing time, the output signal is synchronous to the trigger event.
For two or more R&S SMBVs configured to work in a masterslave mode for synchronous signal generation, enable this
parameter in the slave instruments, in case the master instrument provides the slaves with its internal trigger signal.
OFF
The signal output begins after elapsing of the processing time
and starts with sample 0, i.e. the complete signal is outputted.
This mode is recommended for triggering of short signal sequences with signal duration comparable with the processing time of
the instrument.
While working in a master-slave mode and a common external
trigger event is provided for the master and the slave instruments, disable this parameter in the slave instruments

MSAMp) in the case of an external clock source.
For two-path instruments, the only numerical suffix allowed for SOURce is 1, since the
external clock source is permanently allocated to path A.
Parameters:
<Multiplier>
integer
Range:
1 to 64
Increment: 1
*RST:
4
Example:
BB:DAB:CLOC:SOUR EXT
selects the external clock source.
BB:DAB:CLOC:MODE MSAM
selects clock type "Multiple Sample", i.e. the supplied clock has
a rate which is a multiple of the sample rate.
BB:DAB:CLOC:MULT 12
the multiplier for the external clock rate is 12.
Manual operation:

[:SOURce<hw>]:BB:DAB:CLOCk:SOURce <Source>
Selects the clock source.
For two-path instruments, selecting EXTernal is only possible for path A, since the
external clock source is permanently allocated to path A.
Parameters:
<Source>
INTernal | EXTernal
INTernal
The internal clock reference is used.
EXTernal
The external clock reference is supplied to the CLOCK connector. Commands :BB:DAB:CLOCk:MODE and :MULTiplier are
used to enter the type of the external clock.
*RST:
INTernal
Example:
BB:DAB:CLOC:SOUR EXT
selects the external clock source. The clock is supplied via the
CLOCK connector.
BB:DAB:CLOC:MODE MSAM
selects clock type "Multiple Sample", i.e. the supplied clock has
a rate which is a multiple of the sample rate.
BB:DAB:CLOC:MULT 12
the multiplier for the external clock rate is 12.
Manual operation:
See "Clock Source" on page 27
[:SOURce<hw>]:BB:DAB:CLOCk:SYNChronization:EXECute
Performs automatically adjustment of the instrument's settings required for the synchronization mode, set with the command BB:DAB:SYNC:MODE.
Example:
BB:DAB:CLOC:SYNC:MODE MAST
the instrument is configured to work as a master one.
BB:DAB:CLOCK:SYNC:EXEC
all synchronization's settings are adjusted accordingly.
Usage:
Event
Manual operation:
See "Set Synchronization Settings" on page 27
[:SOURce<hw>]:BB:DAB:CLOCk:SYNChronization:MODE <Mode>
Selects the synchronization mode
This parameter is used to enable generation of very precise synchronous signal of several connected R&S SMBVs.
Note: If several instruments are connected, the connecting cables from the master
instrument to the slave one and between each two consecutive slave instruments must
have the same length and type. Avoid unnecessary cable length and branching points.
