Constellation rearrangementfor 4-PAM repetition coding Abstract: In fading channels to get diversity gain, transmitted data can be repeated in time or frequency. Constellation rearangement can be used instead of using the same signal constellation for each repeated transmission.Author:Seyda Cankaya, Melda YukselPublish Year:2014
Is there a general constellation diagram for m-Pam?
A general constellation diagram for M-PAM is shown in Figure below. The average symbol energy in a constellation is given by the average of all individual symbol energies. For M = 2 M = 2,
Do 4 Pam symbols matter for shaping gain?
A noticeable shaping gain (compared with the equiprobable case) is observed with 4 PAM symbols, when achievable rates are maximized over the probability distribu-tion of the input signals, the shape of the constellation, and the labeling. In this thesis, we aim to study broadcast channels with practical transmission constraints.
What is the difference between 2 2 Pam and 4 4 Pam?
As an example, a 2 2 -PAM waveform is illustrated in Figure below with red dashed curve being the underlying continuous-time signal. In a similar manner to 2 2 -PAM, a 4 4 -PAM waveform based on 4 4 symbols can be constructed by scaling the pulse amplitude by different symbol values during each T M T M, as illustrated in Figure below.
What is constellation rearrangement and why is it important?
The use of a unique bit-to-symbol mapping for each diversity branch (often referred to as constellation rearrangement) is known to provide good perfor-mance for higher level linear modulation techniques when used in conjunction with orthogonal transmit diversity (OTD) and automatic repeat request (ARQ) schemes.
How to make a PAM waveform?
To produce a PAM waveform, the symbol sequence a[m] a [ m] is converted to a discrete-time impulse train through upsampling by L L, where L L is samples/symbol defined as ratio of symbol time to sample time T M /T S T M / T S, or equivalently sample rate to symbol rate F S/RM F S / R M.
What is PAM in physics?
In the article on modulation – from numbers to signals, we said that the Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) is an amplitude scaling of the pulse p(nT S) p ( n T S) according to the symbol value. What happens when this process of scaling the pulse amplitude by symbols is repeated for every symbol during each interval T M T M? Clearly, a series of bits b b (1010 in our initial example) can be transmitted by choosing a rectangular pulse and scaling it with appropriate symbols.
What is a constellation diagram?
Just like a constellation of stars, a constellation diagram shows the actual symbol values representing a set of log2M log 2#N#?#N#M bits. We have already encountered constellation diagrams before (e.g., in the article on a simple communication system ). A general constellation diagram for M-PAM is shown in Figure below.
Is a PAM detector multirate?
Observe that the system shown in PAM system block diagram is a multirate system. In the PAM detector, for example, the ADC and the matched filter operate at the sample rate F S F S. After the output of the matched filter is downsampled by L L, the symbol decisions are made at the symbol rate RM R M. Furthermore, there are some hidden assumptions in the PAM detector:
Is the received signal the same as the transmitted signal?
The received signal r(t) r ( t) is the same as the transmitted signal s(t) s ( t) but with the addition of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) w(t) w ( t). The symbols are detected through the following steps illustrated in Figure above.
