  • 1. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 1 RDS Encoder Introduction CE2.1 Designing and Construction of RDS modulator was one of my valuable experiences in TAKTA Company that I did it in 2011 and it was developed in 2012. New version with more features and new options ended in 2011 and now it’s ready for industrial productions after prototyping production, debugging in software and hardware. I have tried to give a good overview about RDS system in broadcasting with related software and hardware and my experience about this part of FM Transmitter. Background The nature of overall engineering project: CE 2.2 RDS (Radio Data System) is a protocol for transferring digital information in conventional FM (or VHF) broadcast over regular audio programs. This information include date and time, advertising and other text messages, and perform additional ID, control and housekeeping functions. On the other hand RDS offers the possibility for data service provider to introduce new data services to many users. Thus RDS can accommodate a wide range of possible implementation options. Physical layer of RDS system Method of modulation CE 2.3 The subcarrier is amplitude modulated by the shaped and bi-phase coded signal. The subcarrier is suppressed. This method of modulation may alternatively be thought of as a form of two- phase shift keying (PSK) with a phase deviation of ± 90 degrees.
  • 2. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 2 The source data at the transmitter are differentially encoded using below table: Where 𝑡𝑡𝑖𝑖 is some arbitrary time and 𝑡𝑡𝑖𝑖−1 is the time one message-data clock period earlier, and where the message-data-clock rate is equal to 1187.5 Hz. Thus when the input level is 0, the output remains unchanged from the previous output bit, and when an input 1 occurs, the new output bit is the complement of the previous output bit. Baseband coding CE 2.4 Figure below shows the structure of the baseband coding. The largest element in the structure is called a “group” of 104 bits. Each group comprises 4 blocks of 26 bits. Each block comprises an information word and a check word. Each information word comprises 16 bits and each check word comprises 10 bits.
  • 3. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 3 Objectives to be achieved with RDS Features CE 2.5 The following fields are some features in RDS system: - AF (Alternative Frequency) This option allows a receiver to retune to a different frequency providing the same station when the first signal becomes too weak. That is, RDS receivers (e.g. car radio receivers) search for the best signal that carries the same program with no audible interruption. - CT (Clock Time) RDS is capable of setting the date and time on RDS receivers equipped with a clock. Using of this option is arbitrary. - PS (Program Service) This is the station’s name that might typically appear on the receiver faceplate display. PS can be up to eight characters in length and can be as simple as the station’s call letters. For long message transferring, RDS use dynamic PS, that is, it sends long message in a succession of eight character frames. - PTY (Program Type) This data flag identifies the station format from a list of pre-assigned categories. Many RDS receivers are able to seek the listener’s preferred listening preference automatically. This helps a broadcaster catch a certain transient audience share … - RT (Radio Text) This is a 64-character block of plain text that the listener is able to select for visual display, but on only those radios that have an INFO or TEXT button. The RT is not typically available on automobile receivers for legacy safety considerations. - TMC (Traffic Message Channel) Traffic information can be send by RDS. It is often available for automotive navigation systems. In many countries only encrypted traffic data is broadcast, and so an appropriate decoder, possibly tied to a subscription service, is required to use the traffic data.
  • 4. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 4 The nature of my particular work area: CE 2.6 The RDS project was done in TAKTA Company and was divided into different parts: Designing the overall block diagram, Designing the schematics and circuits, analyzing different parts of the circuits, Assembly, Connecting different parts together, constructing, programming and finally testing and optimizing it. Designing the circuits, programming and analyzing it, was my particular work in this project as an electronic-communication engineer. I was also regularly controlling the progress of the project and was responsible for different stages of construction. It was a golden opportunity for me to increase my project management abilities and skills to professionally utilize the resources of the project. A chart of the organizational structure highlighting my position: CE 2.7 TAKTA Electronic Research and Production Company have three main divisions: Business Department, Technical Department and Financial Department. The Research and Development (R&D) Section is a Technical division.

Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 5 TAKTA Electronic Research and Production Company Financial SectionTechnical SectionCommercial Section Research and Develeopment (R&D) Production Section Technical Support Suppervisor Technical Engineer Technician (Mountaging) Quality Control I have been working as an Electronic and Microwave Engineer in the Research and Development Department (R&D). My job includes designing, simulation, optimization and test of different electronic and communication circuits. I have designed the main passive parts of digital UHF Transmitters and High Power FM Transmitter(for example: combiner, splitter, sampler, directional coupler, different types of adaptors and connectors, impedance matching circuits and etc.) and some electronic and active parts of UHF Digital transmitters and FM Transmitter (for example: High power amplifier, AGC, Drive Amplifier, RDS Encoder and etc). At the first stage I design and simulate circuits with related software (for example: ADS, CST Microwave office, HFSS, DXP and etc). After an optimization and simulation, I draw its PCB with Alitium2004 software. Then these Circuits Boards files are sent to print. After the print, I usually assemble different elements on the PCB and test it with different advanced Electronic Measurement instruments. At the end of the process, I usually write a complete report and documentation about my work to be able to have a useful background from my jobs in the future.

  • 8. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 8 Block diagram CE 2.11 Below figure is a simplified block diagram of my board. As a brief description, output signal is produced in CPU2 after D/A (Digital to Analog conversion) and filtering with gain control process. It may be added to MPX input signal if you need or send to output connector directly. Synchronization signal (114 KHz clock) can be constructed in TIMEBASE unit internally or may be extracted from input signal by filtering and other process in PLL unit. CPU2 acts as a communicator with other devices via serial port and LAN port. It processes all of the information and then it sends the results to CPU1. Input signal will be send to output connector without any change via bypass relay when there is any problem in the board or if encoder power is lost. On the other hand, there is a RTC chip (Real Time Clock) with battery backup in my board for date and clock synchronization.

  • 9. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 9 Circuit Description: CE 2.12 Circuit descriptions refer to the next two pages schematic diagram. Stereo pilot recovery- a sample of MPX signal is filtered by the band pass configuration of op- amp U8 (TL072 from TI) to recover the 19 KHz stereo pilot. Tone decoder U14 (LM567 from national) lends further filtering action and squares up the 19 KHz waveform. PLL unit consists of U10 (CD4046) and U11 (CD4018), the output of PLL unit is a 114 KHz square wave six times multiplication of the stereo pilot. This is a clocking that is used by digital processing stages to generate the RDS subcarrier. RDS waveform synthesis- U7(DSPIC33FJ128GP804 from Microchip) is a high speed microprocessor with onboard memory and other useful subsystems. The function of this unit is to synthesize the RDS waveform. This chip has an on-board crystal oscillator to establish an internal master clock for RDS waveform generation if the stereo pilot is not obtained. Digital subcarrier waveform are sent to D/A chip U6 (DAC902 from TI) for digital to analog conversion. Band-pass filter and combining stage- the segmented RDS waveform from the D/A chip is passed through dual band pass filter stages, U4 (TL072 from TI). This 57 KHz filter removes higher order distortion components. U3 (AD817 from AD) is a unity gain output driver stage for combining. with switching K1 in side chain mode , only the RDS subcarrier will be passed at combining stage to the output connector. With switch K1 in loop through operation, MPX signal applied to MPX input connector will be added to RDS subcarrier and combining signal will appear at output connector. Encoder data formatting- U20(DSPIC33FJ256GP710 from microchip) is a second microprocessor that is responsible for receiving and formatting all incoming RDS data. This chip is able to interface directly with the LAN port, U23 (ENC424J600 from microchip), and RS-232 serial interface, U16 (MAX232 from maxim), and RS485 interface, U18 & U19 (MAX 485 from maxim). U20 also addresses the LCD display and receive menu commands from the keypad.

  • 15. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 15 Web Page Mplab- this is a C compiler from Microchip Co. main part of program in relation with CPU1 and CPU2 was written in this environment. All of programs were implemented on their Flash memory. Any particular difficulties /problems I encountered and how I solved them CE 2.14 Hardware consideration All of main parts of hardware were installed and tested separately. By this step by step procedure, I could debug and solve some problem like these: Regulator temperature- at the first design, I used only one regulator to supply 3,3v to CPU1 and CPU2 and some other components. It became hot after 15 minutes working. So I decided to use two regulators for CPUs separately. Then they work in better conditions and I got good noise reduction additionally. LAN fail- when we connect to board via Ethernet port, some packet will be lost. I reduced the data transfer speed but I could not solve the problem, so I understood that there is no software
  • 16. Career Episode 2 RDS Encoder 16 problem. I checked the hardware, by try and error and changing the capacitance of related crystal oscillator, I could solve this problem (by using of 10pF capacitor instead of 20pF). RTC fail- CPU1 had not good performance and worked slowly in final board checking. When I checked it , I saw that RTC chip (PCF8593) interrupt the CPU1 in one second interval except one minute. That is, CPU was very busy for RTC chip interruption. I changed this chip by new and original one, so it worked properly. How I worked with other team members CE 2.15 Team working was important factor in my achievement to the progress. Apart from exclusive design related activities done by me, I was responsible for all stages of the project procedure. I had very friendly relationship with all team members. I prepared project schedule and determined each member task. I carefully followed and updated schedule based on the reports given by project team members. I collected very useful information from other experienced engineers and different books and web sites to increase my technical knowledge and share all information with other team members. There was not any conflict between team members because I tried to clearly define all tasks of project. In a word it was very successful team working and I earned many practical and valuable experiences during the project progress. Summary My view of the overall project CE 2.16 RDS project was one of the
