For all problems except the first, you must show your work to receive credit. 1. Nyquist Criterion (10 pts) For each of the following waveforms, indicate whether it satisfies the Nyquist criterion, and whether it is a square-root Nyquist pulse. The symbol period is T = 2. For each part circle your answers. You do not need to show your work for this question. (a) Nyquist: Yes No Square-root Nyquist: Yes No (5 pts) (b) Nyquist: Yes No Square-root Nyquist: Yes No (5 pts)

3. Punctured Convolutional Codes (35 pts) High-rate convolutional codes can be derived from lower rate convolutional codes through the process of puncturing . Puncturing refers to deleting some of the coded bits output by the encoder. By deleting (i.e., puncturing) some of the bits, the total number of coded bits is decreased and therefore the rate of the code is increased. (The pattern with which bits are deleted, i.e., the puncturing pattern, is fixed and is known to both the encoder and decoder.)

    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.
