– S/N = 30dB D =3000 x 10 ~30000bps The significance of Nyquist’s
and Shannon’s Theorems Nyquist’s theorem encourages engineers to
explore ways to encode bits on a signal.
– A clever encoding allows more bits to be
transmitted per unit time. Shannon’s theorem informs engineers that
no amount of clever encoding can overcome
the laws of physics.
– There is a fundamental limit on the number of bits
per second that can be transmitted in a
realcommunication system. Summary
