For a QPSK receiver, obtain numerical values for the theoretical bit error rate as a function of Eb/No from 0 to 15 dB (i.e. plot a curve or make a table). For a bit error rate of
Find the maximum free space range (distance) that can be covered for a wireless QPSK data linkwith data rate 40 Kbits/sec, bit error rate
, transmit power one microwatt, antennas withzero gain. Assume the bandwidth is equal to the bit rate and the receiver noise figure is 5 dB.Link budget formulas are in the Appendix.
