Realtion between SNR and Eb/No

Started by sairamesh90 December 15, 2004


Hi,
I am modeling a communication channel, where the noise is colored
Gaussian noise whose variance is periodic in nature. I modeled that,
but my problem is that to see the system perforamance(The standard
method is to plot BER perforamce against Eb/No). But in my case, we
can not put Eb/No as x-axis, as noise variance is a function of time
(which is constant for AWGN channels). So i need to plot BER versus
mean signal to nosie ratio(avg SNR). Now my question is what is the
relation between Eb/No and average SNR, assming noise variance is
periodic with a period T.

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated. Best Regards,
