Sirs, For some of the cellular communications standards, multiple modulations schemes are adopted (16QAM, 64QAM etc.). I have feq questions on this, - are these modulation used for modulation of carrier signals or this is baseband related modulation -- assuming this is for carrier modulation, how does the receiver know what modulation has been done used while transmission -- if 16Q...

I am little unsure about line coding in the digital baseband transmission. I know that in passband modulation, for most cases we do apply some pulse-shaping signal to make sure that we are limiting the bandwidth of the symbols before modulation, so that we avoid ISI, and even from spilling to another the adjacent channel in Multi-channel modulation systems. But, I was reading some informatio...


What does PCM mean to you?

PCM stands for pulse code modulation. Can there be PCM without modulation? Is it still PCM if the modulation carries more than one bit per symbol? Radium is confused (or a clever troll), but his ravings raise an interesting question.

Start with logic 0s and 1s. Convert them to pulses that look roughly like Gaussian bell curves each going from near-zero to maximum to near-zero in one bit time, 0s going negative, 1s going positive. Use said negative-and-positive-going pulses to frequency-modulate a carrier. What is the name of this type of modulation? If my description of the mechanics of this modulation scheme i...

hi a short time ago, I posted I was doing computed modulation. I now have 2 nice sidelobes. The q is this: Where mathematically, and more to the point, where should I account for the necessity in code of doing an DC offset to audio array samples in order to achieve the "Carrier" in AM modulation ? procedure: I simply add some close sine frequencies to get a 300-3000 hz waveform ( ...

Hi, Turbo codes implementation through BCJR algorithm for binary modulation is straightforward. Can someone inform me about how to do that for multi-level modulation, say QPSK or 16-QAM. Specifically, how does the decoder function. Any reference paper is also welcome. Thanks. _____________________________ Posted through www.DSPRelated.com

Hello all, What kind of modulation scheme that will suit high speed transmission (at least to 1 Gbps)? And obvious choice will be those highly spectral efficient modulation scheme like OFDM. However, if the linearity requirement and the sensitivity to phase noise are very high, then OFDM could be out of question especially for system that operate at very high frequency such as 40-70GHz . ...

We have two digital modulations, both are the same, the only different is the symbol rate. Usually low symbol rate modulation have less BER than high symbol rate modulation. But my question is if in the case of a bad carrier stability, high symbol rate modulation could have less BER than low symbol rate modulation. I think answer is YES, but i am not sure.
