Phase synchronization in BPSK

Phase (or carrier) Recovery for BPSK can be done over the entire sequence using the information from every sample. Here are common approaches to doing Carrier Recovery: Frequency Doubling (squaring):...

High modulation index PSK - carrier recovery

A PLL on its own will not work on the direct PSK modulation, assuming the symbols are equi-probable as that results in a nulled carrier, so there is nothing the PLL can track! Costas-Loops are ...

Relation between Bandwidth and Baud-Rate for 8-PSK

The final statement is correct, for PSK with proper pulse shaping the baud rate and the bandwidth are the same (the bandwidth will typically be 20-30% higher than the symbol rate, but read on). The ...

MATLAB: Adding Noise with Regard to Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) or EbNo?

These stuffs $E_s/N_0, E_b/N_0 \textrm{ and SNR}$ are convertible. \begin{align} E_s/N_0 &= E_b/N_0 + 10\log_{10}(k) \\ E_s/N_0 &= 10\log_{10}(T_{sym}/T_{samp}) + \mathrm{SNR} \end{align} ...

Beginner BPSK demodulation question

An "integrate and dump" filter is a common approach for this application, which is essentially an averaging filter averaged optimally over your symbol period. To implement this, you simply ...

Energy per bit ($E_b$) in BPSK with non-unity channel gain

The energy per bit $E_b$ means one thing and one thing only: how many joules is the transmitter spending, on average, per information bit transmitted. Note that the channel has absolutely nothing to ...

Spectral Effeciency of BPSK

The spectral efficiency depends on the pulse shape. The basepand BPSK signal can be written as $$s(t)=\sum_k a_k p(t-kT_b),$$ where $a_k$ is equal to either $\sqrt{E_b}$ or $-\sqrt{E_b}$, $E_b$ is the ...

Finding $E_b/N_0$ when coding rate is $R_c$

The energy per bit, $E_b$, is independent of the coding rate. Note that $E_b$ measures the energy per transmitted information bit, not per transmitted symbol. Let's say you're willing to spend one ...

why does the decision boundary change in BPSK? is it true?

Zero-mean noise by itself can't modify the decision boundary. However, the number of things that can go wrong in your system is large. Is your channel flat or frequency-selective? You can think of ...

GPS Coarse Acquisition PRN Codes

I have a PRN generator that I have validated with live captured signals that is available on the Mathworks Exchange site at this address and equally runs in Octave (Update: I also pasted the core of ...

Block diagram of M-PSK modulation and demodulation

So this seems to be a general block diagram for these types of modulations. No, this is a block diagram of a IQ upconverter with some unspecified digital data modulator on the input. You need to ...

Shannon capacity limit & FEC comparisons

I start with BPSK achieving 1 bits/sec/Hz over passband AWGN. Factoring in 1/3 rate coding this becomes 0.333 bits/sec/Hz. This is not correct. The Shannon noisy channel coding theorem states that ...

DPSK vs PSK Error Probability

The flaw in the problem posed starts right from the block diagram that you have posted: it is not the case in DPSK receiver that the RF signal is multiplied with a delayed version of itself and then ...
