Abstract –With the invention of convenient and flexible wireless communication technologies, communicating from one point to another has been much easier. Global system for Mobile communications (GSM) is a second generation wireless communication cellular systems which is widely deployed. In this paper, we will discuss the cellular concept for GSM and its system architecture. Furthermore, KISS 16V2 an ASIC DSP implementation for GSM is being introduced and the test results have been discussed.

Index Terms— GSM, ASIC, DSP, KISS 16V2, Frequency re-use, frame structure,

I. INTRODUCTION
L
ong distance communications had always been an issue due to lack of communication standards. Before GSM networks were established, people used to communicate using analog technologies which was not convenient and reliable. This paved way for the development of digital cellular communication (GSM) which allowed a single mobile user to communicate with the other side of the world. The added advantage was GSM provided services to users with security. The European telecommunications Standardization Institute (ETSI) adapted the GSM standard in 1991, and now GSM is used over 135 countries. [1] Using GSM services a decade ago was expensive than today. What made the price to go down? The answer lies in development of GSM techniques both in hardware and software. In this paper, we discuss the hardware requirements for various digital signal processing functions in GSM and describe a Digital Signal…
