Digital-to-Analog Conversion
 Required to send digital data over a band-
pass channel
 Also known as modulation

(band-pass channel)

acting as a base for information signal
 Also known as "Carrier Frequency"

Bit Rate vs. Baud Rate
 Bit rate the number of bits per second
 Baud rate the number of signal elements per
second.

 In the analog transmission of digital data, the

baud rate is less than or equal to the bit rate

7
Example 5.2
An analog signal has a bit rate of 8000 bps and a baud
rate of 1000 baud. How many data elements are
carried by each signal element? How many different
signal elements do we need?
Solution
In this example, S = 1000, N = 8000, and r and L are
unknown. We find first the value of r and then the value
of L.

Example 5.3
We have an available bandwidth of 100 kHz which
spans from 200 to 300 kHz. What are the carrier
frequency and the bit rate if we modulated our data by
using ASK with d = 1?
Solution
The middle of the bandwidth is located at 250 kHz. This
means that our carrier frequency can be at fc = 250 kHz.
We can use the formula for bandwidth to find the bit rate
(with d = 1 and r = 1).

11
 Bandwidth can be divided into two to
support full-duplex communication
 Two carrier frequencies are used

Binary Frequency Shift Keying
 Or Binary FSK

13
Implementation of Binary FSK

14
Multilevel FSK
 Use one frequency to send more than one
bit at a time
 E.g., the whole bandwidth divided into 8
frequency ranges

15
Binary Phase Shift Keying
 Or Binary PSK

16
Implementation of Binary PSK

17
 Each signal element carries 2 bits

18
Implementation of QPSK

19
Example 5.7
Find the bandwidth for a signal transmitting at 12
Mbps for QPSK. The value of d = 0.

Solution
For QPSK, 2 bits is carried by one signal element. This
means that r = 2. So the signal rate (baud rate) is S = N
(1/r) = 6 Mbaud. With a value of d = 0, we have B = S = 6
MHz.

20
Constellation Diagrams
 A constellation diagram helps define the
amplitude and phase of a signal element

BPSK, and QPSK modulations

 Although the signal is already analog,
modulation is needed if a band-pass
channel is available to us.
