One common way to observe and measure (qualitatively) the effect of ISI is to look at the eye diagram of the received signal. The effect of ISI and other noises can be observed on an oscilloscope displaying the output ½ Ì . Such For illustration, let us consider the basic waveform ٴص is the of the matched filter on the vertical input with horizontal sweep rate set at multiples of a display is called an eye diagram. rectangular pulse ÔÌ ´Øµ and binary signaling is employed. The eye diagrams for the cases where the channel is all-pass (no ISI) and lowpass (ISI present) are shown in Figures 4.1 and 4.2, respectively. The effect of ISI is to cause a reduction in the eye opening by reducing the peak as well as causing ambiguity in the timing information. 4.3 Wong & Lok: Theory of Digital Communications 4.
