## Digital Transmission

### Outline

• Line coding

• Encoding considerations

• DC components in signals

• Synchronization

• Various line coding methods

### Line Coding

• Process of converting binary data to digital signal

### Signal Levels vs. Data Levels

• Number of signal levels

• Number of different voltage levels allowed in a signal

• Number of data levels

• Number of voltage levels that actually represent data values

### Signal vs. Data Elements

One pulse(one signal element)

### Pulse Rate vs. Bit Rate

b – number of bits per pulse

L – number of different signal elements

BitRate = PulseRate× b = PulseRate × log2L

Bit rate  Bits per second

Pulse rate  Baud (pulses or signals per second)

### Pulse Rate vs. Bit Rate

• Example: In Manchester Encoding, if the bit rate is 10 Mbps, what is the pulse rate?

### Encoding Considerations

• Signal spectrum

• Lack of DC components

• Lack of high frequency components

• Clocking/synchronization

• Error detection

• Noise immunity

• Cost and complexity

### DC Components

• DC components in signals are not desirable

• Cannot pass thru certain devices

• Leave extra (useless) energy on the line

### Synchronization

• To correctly decode a signal, receiver and sender must agree on bit interval

### Providing Synchronization

• Separate clock wire

• Self-synchronization

### Line Coding Methods

• Unipolar

• Uses only one voltage level (one side of time axis)

• Polar

• Uses two voltage levels (negative and positive)

• E.g., NRZ, RZ, Manchester, Differential Manchester

• Bipolar

• Uses three voltage levels (+, 0, and –) for data bits

• Multilevel

### Unipolar

• Simplest form of digital encoding

Rarely used

• Only one polarity of voltage is used

• E.g., polarity assigned to 1

### Polar Encoding

• Two voltage levels (+,-) represent data bits

• Most popular four

• Nonreturn-to-Zero (NRZ)

• Return-to-Zero (RZ)

• Manchester

• Differential Manchester

### NRZ Encoding

• NRZ-L (NRZ-Level):Signal level depends on bit value

• NRZ-I (NRZ-Invert): Signal is inverted if 1 is encountered

N = Bit rate

Save = Average signal rate

### RZ Encoding

• Uses three voltage levels: +, - and 0, but only + and - represent data bits

• Half way thru each bit, signal returns to zero

### Manchester Encoding

• Uses an inversion at the middle of each bit

• For bit representation

• For synchronization

### Differential Manchester Encoding

• The inversion on the middle of each bit is only for synchronization

• Transition at the beginning of each bit tells the value

### Bipolar Encoding

• Bipolar encoding uses three voltage levels: +, - and 0

• Each of all three levels represents a bit

• E.g., Bipolar AMI (Alternate Mark Inversion)

• 0V always represents binary 0

• Binary 1s are represented by alternating + and -

### BnZS Schemes

• BnZS – Bipolar n-zero substitution

• Based on Bipolar AMI

• n consecutive zeros are substituted with some +/- levels

• provides synchronization during long sequence of 0s

• E.g., B8ZS

V – Bipolar violation

B – Valid bipolar signal

Input

### PCM: Quantization

• Converts continuous values of data to a finite number of discrete values

Quantization

### Quantization Error

• Assume sine-wave input and uniform quantization

• Known as the 6 dB/bit approximation

### Example: Quantization Error

• A telephone subscriber line must have an SNRdB above 40. What is the minimum number of bits per sample?

Solution

We can calculate the number of bits as

Telephone companies usually assign 7 or 8 bits per sample.

### PCM: Binary Encoding

• Maps discrete values to binary digits

### PCM: The Whole Process

sampling interval

### Minimum Sampling Rate

• Nyquist Theorem:

Sampling rate must be greater than twice the highest frequency

Ex.Find the maximum samplinginterval for recording human voice(freq. range 300Hz – 3000Hz)
