BT = 2W so that r ≤ BT. – Communication Systems 143. would be eight bits multiplied by 10K samples per second. (Ignore sync and error…) Bit Rate Symbol rate = Number of bits transmitted per symbol • Bit Rate – Bit rate is the frequency of a system bit stream. it is important to first understand the difference between bit rate and symbol rate. – The bit rate. – Take. The signal bandwidth for the communications channel needed depends on the symbol rate. For a double-sideband modulated wave whose transmission bandwidth is BT Hz. • Symbol Rate: – If symbols are generated at a rate of r per second to create a baseband signal with a bandwidth of W Hz.Bit Rate and Symbol Rate .1 To understand and compare different modulation format efficiencies. sampling at 10 kHz for voice.

then in the previous example the symbol and bit rates would be identical at 80Kbits per second. then the same amount of data can be sent in a narrower spectrum. Notice that for each constellation point two bits are transmitted.2 01 00 • • • 11 10 QPSK State Diagram • • • • The state diagram opposite represents QPSK (more details later). (These terms are often confused.Digital Modulation . If only one bit was being transmitted per symbol. the symbol rate will be 40Kbits per second. Slide 6 Communication Systems 143.) If more bits can be sent with each symbol. Note that the baud rate is not the same as bit rate. Symbol rate is sometimes called the baud rate. This is why modulation formats that are more complex and use a higher number of states can send the same information over a narrower piece of the RF spectrum. For the QPSK example.Bit Rate and Symbol Rate .332 .

Since 23 = 8.Digital Modulation Slide 7 .Bandwidth Requirements • Consider the two modulation schemes depicted in the figures below: BPSK One bit per symbol Bit rate = Symbol rate 8PSK 3 bits per symbol Symbol rate = 1/3 Bit rate • An example of how symbol rate influences spectrum requirements can be seen in eight-state Phase Shift Keying (8PSK) as shown on the right. there are three bits per symbol. • The phase of the signal can take any of eight values at any symbol time. There are eight possible states that the signal can transition to at any time. It is a variation of PSK. This means the symbol rate is one third of the bit rate. Communication Systems 143.

where M = 2n. • The baud (or signalling) rate defines the number of symbols per second.Digital Modulation Slide 8 . • Each symbol represents n bits. – This is called M-ary signalling. • The maximum rate of information transfer through a baseband channel is given by: – Capacity fb = 2 W log2M bits per second • where W = bandwidth of modulating baseband signal Communication Systems 143. and has M signal states.332 .Digital Modulation Basics • The bit rate defines the rate at which information is passed.

332 .QPSK – Summary comments • Quadrature means that the signal shifts between phase states that are separated by 90 degrees (π/2 radians). • There are four states because 22 = 4. –45. • Only two I values and two Q values are needed and this gives two bits per symbol. Communication Systems 143. It is therefore a more bandwidth-efficient type of modulation than BPSK .Digital Modulation Slide 23 .potentially twice as efficient. • These points are chosen as they can be easily implemented using an I/Q modulator. The signal shifts in increments of 90 degrees from 45 to 135. or –135 degrees.

the frequency of the carrier is changed as a function of the modulating signal (data) being transmitted. A frequency spacing of 0.5 times the symbol period is typically used.

Communication Systems 143.Digital Modulation Slide 32 . – At even numbered symbols. the polarity of the I channel conveys the transmitted data. • Phase shifts of (2N + 1) π/2 radians are easily detected with an I/Q demodulator. • This orthogonality between I and Q simplifies detection algorithms and hence reduces power consumption in a mobile receiver. frequency shifts can be detected by sampling the phase at each symbol period. – At odd numbered symbols the polarity of the Q channel conveys the data.

Digital Modulation Slide 33 • • • • .Minimum Shift Keying . A phase shift of +90 degrees represents a data bit equal to “1”. FSK with this deviation is called MSK (Minimum Shift Keying).332 . while –90 degrees represents a “0”. Communication Systems 143. The peak-to-peak frequency shift of an MSK signal is equal to half of the bit rate. The deviation must be accurate in order to generate repeatable 90 degree phase shifts.2 • The minimum frequency shift which yields orthogonality of I and Q is that which results in a phase shift of ± π/2 radians per symbol (90 degrees per symbol). MSK is used in the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) cellular standard.

which have no amplitude variations. – This is a desirable characteristic for improving the power efficiency of transmitters. – Therefore. more efficient amplifiers (which tend to be less linear) can be used with constant-envelope signals.Comments on FSK and MSK .1 • FSK and MSK produce constant envelope carrier signals.Digital Modulation Slide 34 . generating spectral re-growth.332 . • Amplitude variations can exercise nonlinearities in an amplifier’s amplitude-transfer function. a component of adjacent channel power.

• Differential PSK eliminates the need for the synchronous carrier in the demodulation process and this has the effect of simplifying the receiver. we process the data stream to give a modulated wave where the phase changes by π radians whenever a 1 appears in the stream.Digital Modulation Slide 36 . • It remains constant whenever a 0 appears in the stream.DPSK – 1 • Recovery of the data stream from a PSK modulated wave requires synchronous demodulation – The receiver must reconstruct the carrier exactly so that it can detect changes in the phase of the received signal.332 .
