Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS



[0001] The present application claims priority to Chinese Patent Application No. 201610954140.1, filed on November 3, 2016, the content of which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to the field of wireless charging technologies, and in particular, to the field of wireless charging device communication technologies, and specifically to a method for demodulating a frequency modulated signal of a PMA standard wireless charging device.

BACKGROUND



[0003] In a PMA standard wireless charging device, its energy transmitting terminal (TX) usually sends a FSK signal at the beginning of the whole system operation, and at this time, an operating frequency of a TX signal is from 215 KHz to 220 KHz in the PMA-3 system, from 142 KHz to 158 KHz in the PMA-4 and PMA-5 systems, from 109 KHz to 121 KHz in the PMA-6 system, from 140 KHz to 158 KHz in the PMA-7 system, and from 220 KHz to 226 KHz in the PMA-8 system. Fmod is Fop+Mdepth, and a value of a cycle difference Top-Tmod between a carrier frequency Fop and a modulation frequency Fmod can be calculated to be from 96 ns to 770ns. A piece of data is sent every 500us, and data 1 and data 0 are sent in ways as shown in FIG. 1.

[0004] In the PMA (Power Matters Alliance) standard wireless charging device, a communication signal sent from an energy transmitting terminal to an energy receiving terminal is transmitted by means of frequency conversion, and the problem lies in that in the PMA-3, PMA-4, PMA-5, PMA-6, PMA-7, and PMA-8 standard communication protocols, a communication carrier frequency Fop of a signal sent by an energy transmitting terminal (TX) is not unique (109KHz ≤ Fop ≤ 226KHz), and a frequency difference between Fop and Fmod is not fixed but only has a certain frequency difference range, i.e., having a modulation depth Mdepth (5 to 10 KHz), and thus the same power receiving system may need to simultaneously support the above six types of energy transmitting terminals (TX) based on different PMA protocols.

[0005] At the same time, since a signal received by an energy receiving terminal in a wireless charging system is an inductively coupled signal, the received signal is not a single frequency sinusoidal signal, and instead, it may be doped with a large amount of high frequency noise. The traditional 2FSK demodulation methods are mainly three ways: coherent demodulation, filtering non-coherent demodulation and quadrature multiplication non-coherent demodulation.

[0006] Due to the limitation of the PMA standard communication protocol, a difference value between a carrier frequency Fop and a modulation frequency Fmod is fixed within a certain range, such that the higher the frequency of Fop is, the smaller the cycle difference between Fop and Fmod is. If demodulation is done using traditional methods, the entire system requires very high precision to distinguish different frequencies, which will greatly increases the expenditure of the entire circuit no matter an analog manner or a digital manner is achieved. At the same time, in different PMA transmission systems, the carrier frequency Fop in the communication phase is not fixed to a certain value between 110 KHz and 205 KHz (the PMA protocol only provides a range), which may greatly increase the expenditure of the entire demodulation system.

SUMMARY



[0007] An object of the present disclosure is to overcome the above-mentioned shortcomings of the prior art by providing a method for demodulating a frequency modulated signal of a PMA standard wireless charging device, which can reduce expenditure on a circuit caused by demodulation under a PMA standard communication protocol.

[0008] In order to achieve the above object, the method for demodulating a frequency modulated signal of a PMA standard wireless charging device of the present disclosure is as follows.

[0009] The main feature of the method for demodulating a frequency modulated signal of a PMA standard wireless charging device is that the method mainly includes the following steps:
  1. (1) reading coil signals, sampling the coil signals, and counting cycles;
  2. (2) extracting a frequency change according to a change in a cycle count;
  3. (3) determining data according to the frequency change and a frequency duration and outputting the data; and
  4. (4) splicing the outputted data.


[0010] With the method for demodulating a frequency modulated signal of a PMA standard wireless charging device of the present disclosure, a demodulation part does not require a complex analog circuit, and the highest frequency desired at a digital circuit part is only 4 MHz. Moreover, at this frequency, there is only a simple addition operation, and the main operating frequency is below 236 KHz. Compared with an existing FSK decoding method, the method is more compatible with a PMA standard frequency modulated signal, low in costs, high in demodulation speed, easy to adjust and high in accuracy, has no requirement for a fixed Fop, and can be widely applied.

[0027] The disclosure abandons the conventional practice of the traditional 2FSK coherent demodulation and non-coherent demodulation, and according to the characteristics of the frequency modulation communication signal in the PMA standard, the analog circuit part uses only one comparator to replace the ADC sampling circuit, and at the same time, the digital part can achieve demodulation of the FSK signal only by using a clock frequency of 4 MHz. The implementation process of the present disclosure is as shown in FIG. 2.

[0028] In a medium power wireless charging and receiving terminal and the communication protocol, since the method in which a transmitting terminal generates a sinusoidal wave is controlled by PWM, this method makes it easier to control the frequency and duty cycle of the outputted signal and also causes the signal spectrum to be complex, which cannot be demodulated by the general FSK method. Since the duty cycle of the PWM modulation method is changing while its cycle is fixed and unchanged, the present design obtains coded data by detecting the number of points in the signal cycle and processing the number of the points as a signal. This algorithm fixes a sum of 24 cycles as a processing object, and outputs the sum of the most recent 24 cycle counts every time an end of one cycle is detected. Then, data determination is executed based on the change trend of the sum value in combination with a 4 MHz clock counter.
  1. 1) Data acquisition and processing of the number of points in the cycle:
    After the signal on the coil enters into the chip and is compared with the 0 level by a comparator, the outputted value of the comparator is read at 4MHz. The value can be regarded as 1bit sampling data of 4MHz. In order to ensure that the jitter of the waveform of the input signal will not affect the subsequent decoding algorithm, a low pass filter is applied to the data firstly so as to filter out the jitter waveform of higher frequency, and then demodulation and decoding processing is executed. The data acquisition process is shown in FIG. 3.
    The following is a name of a variable and meaning it represents in the decoding process:
    T_counter - - a cycle counter having a length of 6bit, which counts at a fixed frequency, outputs data at each rising edge and then clears to recount, without considering overflow issues during the counting process.
  2. 2) Extracting the frequency change according to the change in the sum of numbers of points in cycles:
    the flowchart is shown in FIG. 4.
    Parameters will be described as follows:

    const1, const2, const3, const4 -- constants involved in the algorithm;

    Tbuffer - - a cycle count buffer, which is used for saving an outputted value of T_counter has a depth of 23, first in first out;

    SumTbuff - - a sum of members of the cycle count buffer, 15bit, having an initial value of 0;

    delta - - a differential result of outputted values by LPF2;

    Count_delta - - a counter when a delta value is 0, which accumulates when delta is 0 and clears when there is a change;

    sum_delta - - a difference between the sum values, indicating a difference between a value currently outputted by the filter and a current Fop value; and

    clip_sum_delta - - modified sum_delta data.


    If the counter T_counter has an output, a sum of numbers of points of the latest 24 cycles is calculated first, and then the outputted value is stored in the cycle count buffer. After that, the subsequent processing is executed by taking a sum of members of the cycle count buffer- - SumTbuff as an object.
    SumTbuff is the sum of numbers of points of 23 cycles. Due to sampling and interference, SumTbuff data will inevitably fluctuate even in the case of a single-frequency signal. Here, SumTbuff is used as an input signal, and a fluctuation of the sum of the numbers of the points can be regarded as a noise at a higher frequency.
    Therefore, in the whole process, the fluctuation part of the sum of the numbers of the points in the SumTbuff is first smoothed by a low pass filter LPF2.
    The smoothed SumTbuff curve reflects a change in frequency, which is differentiated at this time. Meanwhile, the differential signal is subjected to a series of processing as shown in FIG. 4, so as to eliminate the jitter and offset in the sum value with only the change value left for use in determination.
  3. 3) Executing data determination according to the curve of the change in the sum of the numbers of the points of the cycles and the 4MHz clock counter:
    The flowchart is shown in FIG. 5. The outputted data in FIG. 4 is a sinusoidal-like waveform, and a 4 MHz clock count value between 2 zeros and non-zero transition points (zero to non-zero and non-zero to zero) is used as a basis for data determination. In the 4MHz clock counter, the clock is continuously counting, and the count value is fetched every time at the 0 and non-zero transition points of clip_sum_delta and then the count is restarted.


[0029] Parameters will be described as follows:

const_a, const_b, const_c, const_d, const_e - - threshold values of a 4MHz clock counter involved in the algorithm;

clip_sum_delta - - an output of a cycle point number processing module;

clk_count - - a 4MHz clock counter;

reg_clk_count - - an output register of a 4MHz counter;

data_bit - - 0 indicating that 0 is detected, 1 indicating that 1 is detected, 2 indicating that fop + fmod + fop is detected, 3 indicating that fmod + fop + fop is detected, 4 indicating that fop + fmod + fop is detected, 5 indicating that fmod + fop +long fop is detected, 6 indicating that fop+fmod+long fop is detected, 7 indicating that the processing is suspending, and 8 indicating that an error is detected; and

bit_salve - - a data determination saving value for saving the latest determined half cycle, 2 indicating fop, 3 indicating fmod, and 0 and 1 indicating that the previous data has been determined.



[0030] According to the disclosure, a demodulation part does not require a complex analog circuit, and the highest frequency desired at a digital circuit part is only 4 MHz. Moreover, at this frequency, there is only a simple addition operation, and the main operating frequency is below 236 KHz. Compared with an existing FSK decoding method, the method is more compatible with a PMA standard frequency modulated signal, low in costs, high in demodulation speed, easy to adjust and high in accuracy, has no requirement for a fixed Fop, and can be widely applied.

[0031] In this specification, the disclosure has been described with reference to specific embodiments thereof. However, it will be apparent that various modifications and changes can be made without departing from the scope of the disclosure. Accordingly, the specification and drawings should be regarded as illustrative rather than limiting.
