Leon-Garcia, I. Widjala, Communication networks, Chap 3: Digital transmission fundamentals. Copies provided. Written Assignment : 1. Consider the two digital modulation schemes shown in the figure below. For each scheme, determine the minimum distance between two symbols d min , the average energy per symbol E av , and the average energy per transmitted bit E b . Which scheme is more efficient in terms of transmission energy usage? 2. What is the function of parity check? Consider the scheme where we append a parity bit to each group of 7 bits to generate 1 byte so that each byte has an “even” parity. What is the parity bit you will add to “1010100”? With this added parity bit, can you detect that some bits in a received byte get inverted? What cases of errors can be detected and

Unformatted text preview: what cases cannot be detected? 3. Consider repetition coding with a redundancy factor of 3, i.e., to send an information bit 0, we send 000; to send an information bit 1, we send 111. Suppose the probability that any one bit gets inverted during transmission is p=0.1, what is the probability that an information bit is decoded wrong? 4. Consider a channel with bandwidth 1MHz. (a) Suppose the channel is noiseless, what is the maximum number of bits that can be transmitted reliably if you use 2-ASK for modulation? What if you use 8-ASK? (b) Suppose the channel suffers from noise with a signal to noise ratio of 10 dB. What is the maximum number of bits that can be transmitted reliably? What if the channel SNR is 30 dB?
