Called folded binary code – mirror image
Table1 shown a PCM code with a three-bit sign magnitude together with eight possible combinations.
(a) Analog input signal (b) sample pulse (c) PAM signal (d) PCM code
Amplitudes of the signal m(t) lie in the range (-mp.mp), which is partitioned into L intervals.
Then each magnitude, v = 2mp /L
Where L = 2n, and n = number of bits.
An example of 3-bit quantization.
An example of 3-bit quantization with increased sample rate.
where Vmax = max voltage magnitude,
Vmin = resolution (quantum value)
DRdB = 20log
2n – 1 ≥ DR
and for a minimum number of bits
2n – 1 = DR or 2n = DR + 1
where n = number of bits in a PCM code, excluding the sign bit
DR = absolute value of dynamic range
Then DRdB = 20log (2n – 1),
and for n > 4,
DRdB ≈ 20log (2n)
From previous example,
SQRdB = 10.8 + 20 log v/q
where v = rms signal voltage
q = quantization interval
or SQRdB = 6.02n + 1.76
where n = no. of bits
(assume equal R)
SQR at lower amplitude < SQR at higher amplitude Maximum analog input frequency = 4kHz Maximum decoded voltage at the Rx =
Lower amplitude values are relatively more distorted
More of voice signal is at lower amplitude
Reduce step size at lower amplitude
More accuracy at lower amplitude
Sacrifices SQR at higher amplitude
Provides higher dynamic range
