This is the problem from Shaum Otlines Analog and Digital Communications, Hwei Hsu Problem 5.13.
It asks for number of binary digits in each sample if each sample at the receiving end of the system has to be 0.5 per cent of the peak-to-peak full scale value. First of all, how can i understand term "peak-to-peak full-scale" value? What is that supposed to mean?
Now, in the solution to this problem, it says that the peak error is $0.005*2m_p$ where $2m_p$ is distance from lower to upper peak of the signal.
However, i am not familiar with term "peak error", what is "peak error"?
And then, PEAK TO PEAK ERROR turns out to be $2*0.005*m_p$. What is peak to peak error and what is the difference between peak error and ppeak to peak error? Any help appreciated!
