Digital Communication

THEORY: Many analogue communication systems are still in wide use today. These include AM, FM, and PM systems. If analogue signals are to be transmitted digitally, they have to be converted to discrete samples. The conversion of an analogue signal into a discrete-time sampled signal is accomplished by sampling the analogue signal at regular time intervals Ts. Ts is called the sampling period and fs = 1/ Ts is known as the sampling rate. Sampling Theorem Let m(nTs) be the sample values of m(t) where n is an integer. The sampling theorem states that the signal m(t) can be reconstructed from m(nTs) with no distortion if the sampling frequency fs > 2fm. The minimum sampling rate 2fm is called the Nyquist sampling rate. A signal m(t) is called a band-limited signal if M(f) = 0 for | f | > fm Hz where fm is the highest-frequency spectral component of m(t). Since the bandwidth of m(t) is fm, we see that the spectra do no overlap if fs > 2 fm and the spectrum associated with the signal m(t) can be separated from others using a low-pass filter with a cutoff frequency of fm. When fs < 2 fm, the spectra overlap. Since the frequency content in these regions of overlap adds, the signal is distorted. The distortion is called aliasing and it is no longer possible to recover m(t) from its sample values by low-pass filtering. The process of reconstructing an analogue signal m(t) from its samples is known as interpolation. In order to recover the information back one should have a reconstruction filter (low pass filter), which is restrict to max frequency of the signal m(t). Types of Sampling: 1. Flat-top sampling 2. Natural sampling PROCEDURE: 1. Connect the various blocks I/O as per given in manual. 2. Observe the input signal and output signal. 3. Observe the spectrum of input and output signal. 4.

we have a PCM system. these sampled signals are often quantised and coded before transmission. The conversion process is called quantisation. 65. THEORY: We have seen that sampling a bandlimited signal at or above the Nyquist sampling rate does not destroy any information content and fully characterizes the band limited signal. The decimal-to-binary conversion can be done in various ways. instead. 256 = 28 levels are used to keep the quantisation error to a tolerable level. If the quantised samples are transmitted directly over a channel. To reduce the quantisation error. BLOCK DIAGRAMS: Page: 9 . An analogue message m(t) is first sampled at or above the Nyquist sampling rate.Department of Electronics and Communication Digital Communication CONCLUSION: Marks Obtained Sign of Faculty In Charge Date: DATE: PRACTICAL NO: 5 AIM: To study and perform Pulse Code Modulation (PCM). In practical digital telephone systems. we code each quantised sample into a block of digits for transmission. APPARATUS: Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) trainer kit. These sampled signals are then converted into a finite number of discrete amplitude levels. In modern communication systems. we have a quantised PAM system. If. Quantisation obviously reduces the degree of accuracy of representation of the sampled signal and introduces some error in the reproduction of the signal at the receiver. Error introduced by the quantiser is called quantisation error or quantisation noise. We have pulse code modulation (PCM).536= 216 levels are used for the CD digital system. we simply increase the total number of amplitude levels (decreasing the spacing between adjacent levels). A system transmitting these sampled values of the bandlimited signal is called a sampled data or pulse modulation system.
