Find Bandwith from Spectral Efficiency and Eb/N0

to give you a short intro of why I am asking here. My Uni is offering a TeleCom Lecture, I love the topic but all they teach is electronics, the exercise sheets are still TeleCom, we get no supporting ...

Relationship between spectral efficiency and PAR

Low PAR means less fluctiations in the magnitude of a signal and hence analog signal processing (e.g., power amplifier) is tremendously reduced. For example, constant envelope modulation schemes like ...

About combination between QAM and PAM

I have confused question regarding the possibility of combination between QAM modulation and PAM in order to improve the spectral efficiency. Is that possible? As you see in the below Figure, it's ...

A priori spectral efficiency of OFDM scheme

Of course I can compute the spectral efficiency as the ratio of the measured bit-rate (of data bits, no header, no preable, nor redundancy bits included) and the measured spectral bandwidth. This ...

Why do we say that spectral efficiency is measured in [bit/s/Hz], not just [bit]?

The link spectral efficiency of a digital communication system is measured in bit/s/Hz. We have that 1 Hz = 1 s$^{-1}$. So, $\left((1 \,\text{bit}) /1 \text{s} \right)\, / \left({\frac{1}{1 \text{...

Spectral Effeciency of BPSK

The null-to-null bandwidth of the main lobe of a BPSK signal is twice the symbol rate. BPSK transmits one bit per symbol, so the signal bandwidth is twice the bit rate. That has been shown on a few ...

FFT subset output yields computational efficiency

The traditional FFT gives $N=2^k$ outputs for $N=2^k$ inputs (generally complex.) The time effort is $O(N \cdot \log(N))$. If all I want is a compact subset of $M \ll N$ output frequency points, is ...

Does “keying on” a sine wave at a zero-crossing reduce its bandwidth?

I understand that a pure sine wave of infinite duration occupies no bandwidth, i.e. it is only the modulation of a carrier that gives it sidebands. Does the exact timing of a sudden modulation make ...

ًWhy we use fourier transform in most of spectrum estimation approaches?

I wonder why in all spectrum estimation techniques, the analysis depend on the Fourier transform? Why not deal with the signals in time domain?

ISI Nyquist criterion and spectral efficiency

While reading Bernard Sklar's Digital Communications book I've got confused with ISI Nyquist criterion (not Nyquist rate criterion). There is stated (Sklar, 3.3 section) for symbol rate $R_s$ minimum ...
