Error Performance of Binary FSK

with two time-limited signals as reproduced below:

We will consider the coherent demodulator structure [Fig. 5.28.1(b)] so that we

can apply similar procedure as in Lesson #27 and obtain the optimum error performance

for binary FSK. For ease of reference, the signal constellation for BFSK is reproduced in

Fig. 5.28.1(a). As we can see, the two signal vectors are

process

Now, suppose

1

s represents logic ’1’ and

2

s represents logic ‘0’. If s

1

(t) is

transmitted and if noise is absent, the output of the upper correlator in Fig. 5.28.1(b), i.e.

r

1

is

b

E while the output of the lower correlator, i.e. r

2

is zero. So, we see that the

intermediate parameter L =(r

1

– r

2

) >0. Similarly, it is easy to see that if s

2

(t) is

transmitted, L <0. Now, from Fig. 5.28.1(a) we see that the decision boundary is a

straight line with unit slope. This implies that, if the received vector r at the output of the

correlator bank is in decision zone Z

1

, then L >0 and otherwise it is in zone Z

2

.

When we consider additive noise, ‘L’ represents a random variable whose mean is

+

b

E if message ‘1’ is transmitted. For message ‘0’, the mean of ‘L’ is -

b

E .

Further, as we noted in our general analysis earlier in Lesson #19 (Module #4), r

1

and r

2

are independent and identically distributed random variables with the same variance

2

o

N

.

So, variance of ‘L’ =variance of ‘r

Observe that the FSK modulation scheme performs significantly poorer.

Determination of the expression for average Symbol Error Rate (SER) will be

avoided here for simplicity. However, the approach is general and similar to what we

have followed earlier. For example, consider the decision zone of

0

θ denotes the likelihood function for

Fig. 5.28.4 shows the probability of symbol error of M-ary PSK modulation

schemes for M =8, 16 and 32. For comparison, the performance of QPSK modulation is

also included. Note that the error performance degrades significantly with increase in the

number of symbols (M). This is intuitively acceptable because, with increase in M, the

decision region of a symbol narrows down and hence, smaller amount of noise may cause

decision error.

32

Another issue, which is of great significance in practice, is the need for precise

recovery of carrier phase at the receiver so that the optimum coherent demodulation

approach can be adopted. Usually, the required level of accuracy pushes up the

complexity (and cost) of an M-ary PSK receiver for higher values of M. Still, M-ary

modulation schemes have been popular for moderate values of ‘M’ such as 8 and16

because of their bandwidth efficiency. Another related family of modulation scheme,

known as Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) has become attractive in terms of

performance-bandwidth tradeoff especially for large number of signal points (M). We

will briefly discuss about QAM in the next lesson.
