In general, the number of information bits transmitted per second will be the signaling rate (T −1 ) times the number of bits represented by each pulse that is transmitted (log2 M ). Pulse-shapes that are commonly used to generate the message signal include the rectangular pulse (Figure 1.8a): 1 , −1 ≤ 2 t T < 1 2 F (m(t)) = M (f ) = M (f ) = ￿ ￿ ∞ m(t)e−j 2πf t dt −∞ ∞ −∞ ￿ [ an p(t − nT )]e−j 2πf t dt M (f ) = P (f ) n ￿ an e−j 2πf nT n < |M (f )| >= |P (f )| < | 2 2 ￿ n an e−j 2πf nT |2 > If the pulses, p(t), have bandwidth W then the message signal, m(t), will also have bandwidth W .

A very useful family of pulses with finite bandwidth is obtained by defining the pulse such that its Fourier transform transitions from a constant (flat) central region to zero through a smo oth transition region having a raised cosine shape. These pulses are called raised-cosine pulses (Figure 1.8(c-e)). The Fourier transform of the raised-cosine pulse is 1 T |f T | ≤ 2 (1 − β ) T π 1 1 1 P (f ) = (1.6) 2 {1 + cos[ β (|f T | − 2 (1 − β )]} 2 (1 − β ) < |f T | ≤ 2 (1 + β ) , 1 0 |f T | > 2 (1 + β ) 1.4.

In this case, the spectrum becomes rectangular 1 results when β = 0 which results in W = 2T . In this case, the spectrum becomes rectangular and the pulse shape is a sinc function with relatively large sidelobes that extend over many and the pulse shape is a sinc function with relatively large sidelobes that extend over many signaling intervals on either side of the center of the pulse. For 0 < β ≤ 1, the amplitude signaling intervals on either side of the center of the pulse. For 0 < β ≤ 1, the amplitude spectrum exhibits a gradual transition to zero. As β increases, the sidelobes are increasingly spectrum exhibits a gradual transition to zero. As β increases, the sidelobes are increasingly damped and the time-domain pulse becomes more compact and extends over fewer signaling damped and the time-domain pulse becomes more compact and extends over fewer signaling intervals. intervals.
