Polytechnic University, Dept. Electrical and Computer Engineering EE3414 Multimedia Communication System I Spring 2006, Yao Wang __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Homework 11 (Digital Communication) (Solution) 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? Solution: For 4-ary PAM, the distance between any two adjacent symbols (e.g. “A” and “3A”) is 2A, therefore d min =2A. The energy for symbols “A” and “-A” are both A 2 ; and the energy for symbols “3A” and “-3A” are both 9A 2 . Therefore the average energy per symbol is E av =(A 2 +9A 2 )/2=5A 2 . Because each symbol carries 2 bits, the average energy per bit is E b = E av /2=5A 2 /2. For 4-QAM, the distance between two closest symbols (say “00” and “01”) is 2A, therefore d min =2A. The length from the origin to each symbol is A 2 . So the energy for each symbol is 2A 2 . Therefore the average energy per symbol is

### What students are saying

• 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.
