Communications System

Main purpose of an electronic

communications system is to transfer

information from one place to another.

Electronic communications can be

viewed as the transmission, reception

and processing of information between

two or more locations using electronic

circuit/device.

It covers

Communication models

Communication transmission modes

communication

Electromagnetic frequency spectrum

Communication bandwidth

Information capacity

1.1 Basic Communication Model

Basic communication models shows the communication

flows between two points.

Sink receiver that receive the information

Channel transmission path/medium of the

information between the source and sink

1.1 Basic Communication Model

Communication system model

4

Transmission channel physical link between

the communicating parties

Modulator transform the source signal so

that it is physically suitable for the

transmission channel

Transmitter introduce the modulated signal

into the channel (also act as amplifier)

Receiver Detect the signal on the channel

and amplify it (due to the attenuation)

Demodulator Get the source signal (original)

from the received signal and pass it to the

recipient 5

1.2 Communication / Transmission Mode

Communication system can be designed for transmitting

information in one or both direction. Generally, the mode of

communication can be divided into three types :

direction only where only the sender can send the information and only the

recipient can receive the information. (e.g. TV & radio broadcasting)

direction, but only one direction is allowed at a time. The sender transmits to the

intended receiver, and then reverse their roles. (e.g. walkie-talkie, 2-way

intercom)

same time. The 2 directions of information travel are independent of each other.

(e.g. ordinary/mobile phone systems, computer systems)

1.3 Power Measurement

(dB, dBm, Bel and dBW)

Magnitudes of communication signals span a

very wide range causing a drawbacks as

follow :

Extremely large scale (graph/drawing)

Hard calculation (too big vs too small numbers)

Prone to errors (e.g. 0.0001 vs 0.00001)

Hard to compare the signals

9

1.3.1 Decibel (dB)

Used to measure the ratio between two

values value to be measured relative to a

reference value

In the electronic communication field, decibel

is normally used to define the power ratios

between 2 signals

- To express relative gain and lose of the

electronic device/circuit

- Describing relationship between signal and

noise

10

In the common usage, it also used to express the

ratios of voltage and current

If two powers are expressed in the same units (e.g.

watt, miliwatt), their ratio is a dimensionless

quantity that can be expressed in decibel form as

follow

P 0ut

dB 10 log 10 (1)

Pin

11

1.3.1 Decibel (dB)

WherePout : power level of output (watts)

Pin : power level of input (watts)

respect to the reference power Pin

the dB value shows the difference in dB

between power Pout and Pin

12

1.3.1 Decibel (dB)

In the case to measure the power gain or loss of any

electronic circuit or device, equation (1) can be

written as follow

Pout

Ap ( dB ) 10 log 10

Pin (2)

where Ap(dB) : power gain (unit in dB) of Pout with respect to

Pin

Pout : output power level (watts)

Pin : input power level (watts)

Pout/Pin : absolute power gain (unitless)

13

Positive (+) dB value indicates the output

power is greater than the input power, which

indicates power gain or amplification

Negative (-) dB value indicates the output

power is less that the input power which

indicates power loss or attenuation

If Pout = Pin, the absolute power gain is 1,

which means dB power gain is 0 (referred as

unity power gain)

1.3.2 dBm

A dBm is a unit of measurement used to

indicate the ratio of power level with respect

to a fixed reference level. With dBm, the

reference level is 1 mW (miliwatts).

dBm unit can be expressed as follow

P (4)

dBm 10 log 10

1.3.3 Bel

A Bel is one-tenth of a decibel

Pout

Bel log 10 (5)

Pin

The Decibel unit was originated from the Bel unit, in honor of Alexander

Graham Bell.

Bel unit compressed absolute ratios of 0.00000001 to 100000000 to a

ridiculously low range of only 16 Bel (-8 Bel to + 8 Bel).

Difficult to relate Bel unit to true magnitudes of large ratios and impossible

to express small differences with any accuracy.

To overcome this, Bel was simply multiplied by 10, creating a decibel.

28

1.3.4 Power levels, Gains and Losses

and power gains are given as

absolute values, the output power is

determined by multiplying the input

power with the power gains.

29

Ex 6 : Given a 3 stages system comprised of

two amplifiers and filter. The input power Pin =

0.1 mW. The absolute power gains are AP1 =

100, AP2 = 40 and AP3 = 0.25. Determine

b) the dB gain of each of the 3 stages

c) output power (Pout) in watts and dBm

30

1.3.4 Power levels, Gains and Losses

Ex 7 : For a 3-stages system with an input

power Pin = -20 dBm and the power gains of

the 3-stages as AP1 = 13 dB, AP2 = 16 dB and

AP3 = -6 dB, determine the output power (Pout)

in dBm and watts.

31

1.4 Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum

Communicating the information between two or more location is done by

converting the original information into electromagnetic energy and then

transmitting it to the receiver where it is converted back to its original form

The electromagnetic energy is distributed throughout infinite range of

frequencies

The total electromagnetic frequency spectrum with the approximate

locations of various services is shown below.

32

1.4 Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum

The spectrum is divided into bands, with each band having a different

name and boundary.

The radio frequency band (30Hz ~300GHz) is divided into narrower band

as follow.

33

1.4 Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum

Wavelength : is the length that one cycle of electromagnetic wave

occupies in space. It is inversely proportional to the frequency of the

wave and directly proportional to the velocity of propagation.

Wavelength can be defined as follow,

c

f (6)

where = wavelength (m), c = velocity of light (3 x 108 m/s),

f = frequency (Hz)

38

1.5 Bandwidth

Bandwidth of an information signal is the difference between

the highest and the lowest frequency contained in that signal.

between the highest and the lowest frequency that the channel

will allow to pass through it.

greater than the bandwidth of the information.

Hz

39

1.6 Information Capacity

Information capacity is a measure of how much information can be

propagated through a communication system.

It can be expressed in the function of bandwidth and transmission time.

It represents the number of independent symbols that can be carried

through a system in a given unit of time

Based on Hartleys Law,

IB t (7)

B = bandwidth (Hz)

t = transmission time (seconds)

40

1.6 Information Capacity

In 1948, Claude E. Shannon published what is called as Shannon limit for

information capacity defined as follow

Based on this law, the information capacity of any communication channel

is related to its bandwidth and the signal-to-noise ratio.

The higher the signal-to-noise ratio, the better the performance and the

higher the information capacity is.

Mathematically, it is defined as,

S

I B log 21 (8)

N

or

S

I 3.32 B log 101

N (9)

41

1.6 Information Capacity

where I = information capacity (bits per second)

B = bandwidth (Hz)

S/N = signal to noise power ratio (unitless)

a signal-to-noise ratio of 1000 (30 dB)

and a bandwidth of 2.7 kHz, determine

the Shannon limit for information

capacity.

1.7 Noise Representation, types & source

Definition any undesirable electrical energy that falls within the passband of

the signal.

Effect of noise on the electrical signal :

Correlated noise noise that exists only when a signal is present.

Uncorrelated noise noise that presents all the time whether there is a signal or not

44

1.7.1 Uncorrelated noise

2 general categories of uncorrelated noise :

1. External noise noise that generated outside the device or circuit.

Atmospheric noise

- naturally occurring electrical disturbances that originate within earths atmosphere such as

lightning.

- also known as static electricity.

Extraterrestrial noise

- consists of electrical signal that originate from outside earths atmosphere and therefore also

known as deep-space noise.

- 2 categories of extraterrestrial noise.

i solar noise noise that generated directly from the suns heat.

ii cosmic noise / black-body noise noise that is distributed throughout the galaxies.

Man-made noise

- noise that is produced by mankind.

- source : spark-producing mechanism (commutators in electrical motors, automobile ignition

systems, ac power generating/switching equipment, fluorescent lights).

45

1.7.1 Uncorrelated noise

2 general categories of uncorrelated noise :

2. Internal noise noise that generated within the device or circuit.

Shot noise

- caused by the random arrival of carriers (holes and electrons) at the output element of an

electronic device.

- shot noise is randomly varying and is superimposed onto any signal present.

Transit-time noise

- irregular, random variation due to any modification to a stream of carriers as they pass from

the input to the output of a device.

- this noise become noticeable when the time delay takes for a carrier to propagate through a

device is excessive.

- noise that is produced by mankind.

- source : spark-producing mechanism (commutators in electrical motors, automobile ignition

systems, ac power generating/switching equipment, fluorescent lights).

46

1.7.1 Uncorrelated noise

2 general categories of uncorrelated noise :

2. Internal noise noise that generated within the device or circuit.

- associated with the rapid and random movement of electrons within a conductor due to

thermal agitation.

- also known as Brownian noise, Johnson noise and white noise.

- uniformly distributed across the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

- a form of additive noise, meaning that it cannot be eliminated, and it increase in intensity

with the number of devices and with circuit length.

- the most significant of all noise sources

- thermal noise power can be defined as follow :

N KTB (6.1)

B : bandwidth (Hertz)

T : absolute temperature (kelvin) .......... T = C + 273

47

1.7.1 Uncorrelated noise

Thermal / random noise

- equivalent circuit for a thermal noise source when the internal resistance of the source R 1 is

in series with the rms noise voltage VN

- for a worst case and maximum transfer of noise power, the load resistance R is made equal

to the internal resistance. Thus the noise power developed across the load resistor :

N KTB

VN / 2

(6.3)

48

1.7.2 Correlated noise

a form of internal noise that is correlated to the signal and cannot be present in a

circuit unless there is a signal.

produced by a nonlinear amplification resulting in nonlinear distortion.

there are 2 types of nonlinear distortion that create unwanted frequencies that

interfere with the signal and degrade the performance :

1. Harmonic distortion

amplification.

harmonics are integer multiples of the original signal. The original signal is the

first harmonic (fundamental harmonic), a frequency two times the fundamental

frequency is the second harmonic, three times is the third harmonic and so on.

characterized by high amplitude peaks of short duration (sudden burst of irregularly

shaped pulses) in the total noise spectrum.

common source of impulse noise : transient produced from electromechanical

switches (relays and solenoids), electric motors, appliances, electric lights, power

lines, poor-quality solder joints and lightning.

2. Interference

electrical interference occurs when information signals from one source produces

frequencies that fall outside their allocated bandwidth and interfere with information

signal from another source.

most occurs in the radio frequency spectrum.
