Two-dimensional signals S 1 =(1,1) S 2 =(-1,-1) S 3 =(1,-1) S 4 =(-1,1) S i = (S i1 , S i2 ) Set of signal points is called a constellation 2-D constellations are commonly used Large constellations can be used to transmit many bits per symbol More bandwidth efficient More error prone The “shape” of the constellation can be used to minimize error probability by keeping symbols as far apart as possible Common constellations QAM: Quadrature Amplitude Modulation PAM in two dimensions PSK: Phase Shift Keying Eytan Modiano Slide 2 Special constellation where all symbols have equal power

    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.
