- Output signal-to-noise ratio for analog systems(AM, SSB, PM, and FM)

- How much bandwidth occupied in the air?

Eample 2: A digital communication case:

- How much bandwidth occupied in the air?
How many AM stations can be?

- What is the listening-performance?
Is it very noisy to the listener?

- Equipment cost and complexity?

Data-rate of bsp or Bandwidth of Hz

Error rate (probability of error) or SNR

Money and time

- Channel: not a “free lunch”
- Always having a limited bandwidth
- With noise, and even interference
- Often, with distortion
We mainly concern the most common AWGN channel:

- Additive noise
- Noise is White and Gaussian
- No distortion, maybe some amplifying of A, maybe some delay of t0
- Bandwidth is enough for a certain transmission

In this chapter, we discuss the “performance-and-cost” of communication systems

- SNR and/or Pe (probability of error), bit-error-rate
- Bandwidth and/or data-rate

Comparison of analog systems

- Baseband signaling in Ch3, such as line-code:
processing = LPF+AMP

- Bandpass signaling in Ch4&5, as OOK, PSK, FSK, MSK, and etc. processing = superheterodyne receiver (mixer + IF-amp + detector)

Src data of 0 and 1 at prob. of ½ randomly

A signal, up to src data is in the interval (0,T)

Noise added

r(t) is then processed and r0(t) output.

Sampled at t0, the sync-timing; noise is inside of r0

r01 and r02 are diff, then which data could be told

Source data:

Transmitted signal

Input of receiver

After sampling

Data received

- Receiver: detection + decision
In the receiver, detect-processing is used to convert the waveforms r(t) into r0

- With no noise, s1(t) and s2(t) are mapped to the apart “clean centers”
- The noise corrupts the waveform and then the r0 is “dirty” and away from the center.
Decision is to obtain 0 or 1 from the r0

- The rule is “go to the nearest neighbor”
- Or equivalent to: use a threshold VT to seperate.

- Errors occur when r0 falls in the wrong areas due to noise.
- The r0 is a random variable, basically from the randomness of n(t) in r(t). The distribution could be as following:
- f(r0|s1) and f(r0|s2) are generated from n(t) by detect-processing
- VT is a proper-defined threshold

- When signal plus noise is present at the receiver input,Error can occur in two ways, an error occurs when r0<VT if a binary 1 is sent, and an error occurs when r0>VT if a binary 0 is sent

- P(s1 sent) and P(s2 sent) are source statistics and are known before transmission, so called prior statistics; P(s1 sent) and P(s2 sent) are normally considered to be equally likely.

- It is on a bit-basis, so called as (Average) bit error rate

- The BER is

- We assume that the source statistics are equally likely.

- Two assumptions make things easy:
- 1. linear detection except for the threshold device
- 2. The AWGN channel white and Gaussian n(t) with zero mean and E{| n(t) |2}=σ02

- Notes:
- For baseband signaling, the processing circuits consisting of linear filter with some gain.
- For bandpass signaling, a superheterodyne circuit consisting of a mixer, IF stage, and product detector being also a linear circuit.
- If automatic gain control (AGC) or limiters or a nonlinear detector such as envelope detector is used, the results of this section will not be applicable.

- For the case of a linear-processing receiver circuit with a binary signal plus noise at the input, the sampled output is:

- s0 is a constant that depends on the signal being sent

- Since the output noise n0 is a zero-mean Gaussian random variable, the total output sample r0 is a Gaussian random variable with a mean value of either s01 or s02, depending on whether a binary 1 or a binary 0 was sent. That is to say:

- Then the two conditional PDFs are

- Using equally likely source statistics, the BER becomes:

- thus

- To find the VT that minimizes Pe we need to solve dPe/dVT=0

- If the receiving filter is optimized the BER can be reduced. To minimize Pe, we need to maximize the argument of Q, thus we need to find the linear filter that maximizes:

- [sd(t0)]2 is the instantaneous power of the difference output signal at t=t0

- The linear filter that maximizes the instantaneous output signal power at the sampling t=t0 when compared with the average output noise power σ02=n02(t) is the matched filter. For the case of noise white noise at the receiver input, the matched filter needs to be matched to the difference signal sd(t)=s1(t)-s2(t). Thus the impulse response of the matched filter for binary signaling is:

- The output peak signal to average noise ratio that is obtained from the matched filter is:

- The performance is measured by
Pe=P(err|s1) P(s1) + P(err|s2) P(s2) => [P(err|s1) + P(err|s2) ]/2

- For AWGN channel, when linear detector used,

- More, optimal linear receiver or match filter C[s1(t0-t)-s2(t0-t)] can maximize the SNR of r0 and Pe even smaller

●Receive with (linear) LPF

- Decision with VT=AT/2

- Eb is the average bit-energe:
- No matter what pulse-shape, Pe is the same
- The best Pe, is always smaller than or equal to that of LPF-Pe.。

- For LPF, smaller BW introduces less noise and then good Pe. But, BW must be bigger enough to let the signal to pass.
- However, for MF the BW might be very large. For Example, the rect-pulse need rect-MF h(t). Its H(f) is a sinc-function and the absolute BW is infinitive! Then it would introduce much noise, why it could make the best Pe?

Bandwidth is BHz and the signal is low freq. in (0-B) Hz.

- Results
- Ed (max) = A2T, when f1-f2=n/(2T)=n(bit-rate/2); Then Pe is min as

- f1 and f2 is called orthogonal, when configured as above condition
Or, when f1-f2>>bit-rate, approximately orthogonal

- Eb is the average bit-energe:
- No matter what pulse-shape, Pe is the same
- This is best Pe, smaller than or equal to LPF-Pe

- Unlike OOK, FSK signal is constant-enveloped. Why Pe of FSK is not the same as PSK?

- When modulated signal is passed thru the AWGN channel, receiver with linear detector is often used
- The mixer+LPF provides a basic result:
Best Pe when sinc-pulse (smallest BW of LPF)

3dB worse when rect-pulse；even-worse if wider-BW pulses used

- The match filter=correlator, C[s1(T-t)-s2(T-t)] can minimize Pe, so best result

- The mixer+LPF provides a basic result:
- Different modulations yield different Pe. With the same Eb/N0, means:
