What are Constrained Channels?

Channel Capacity What is channel capacity? The maximum number of bits that can be handled in a particular channel with small error probability. Unlimited amounts of error-free data could theoretically be transmitted over an infinite bandwidth, noise-free communications channel. However, real- world signals are limited by both bandwidth constraints and noise. Can we calculate the maximum number of bits that can be handled in a particular channel? Yes! using the Shannon–Hartley theorem.

Shannon–Hartley theorem What is the Shannon–Hartley theorem? The Shannon-Hartley theorem tells us the maximum amount of error-free data that can be transmitted over a communications channel such as a copper wire or an optical fiber.

Shannon–Hartley theorem C apacity = b andwidth x log 2 (1 + S/N ) C is the channel capacity B is the bandwidth of the channel S is the total signal power N is the total noise power S/N is the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
