Digital Communications I: Modulation and Coding Course Term 3 - 2008 Catharina Logothetis Lecture 7 Last time we talked about: Another source of error due to filtering effect of the system: Inter-symbol interference (ISI) The techniques to reduce ISI Pulse shaping to achieve zero ISI at the sampling time Equalization to combat the filtering effect of the channel Lecture 7 2 Today, we are going to talk about: Some bandpass modulation schemes used in DCS for transmitting information over channel M-PAM, M-PSK, M-FSK, M-QAM

Demod. Sample 4 Bandpass modulation Bandpass modulation: The process of converting a data signal to a sinusoidal waveform where its amplitude, phase or frequency, or a combination of them, are varied in accordance with the transmitting data. Bandpass signal: 2 Ei si (t ) gT (t ) cosc t (i 1)t i (t ) 0 t T T where gT (t ) is the baseband pulse shape with energy Eg . We assume here (otherwise will be stated): gT (t ) is a rectangular pulse shape with unit energy. Gray coding is used for mapping bits to symbols. 1 E denotes average symbol energy givenEsby

Sources of carrier-phase mismatch at the receiver: Propagation delay causes carrier-phase offset in the received signal. The oscillators at the receiver which generate the carrier signal, are not usually phased locked to the transmitted carrier. Lecture 7 7
