Simulation techniques for the study of modulated communication channels

Computer And Communication Networks
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4)


Description of some techniques for simulation of signal processing in communication channels by the use of a general programme for a digital computer. The method of simulation is explained and special techniques are developed for calculation of coherent and incoherent NPR in FDM/FM channels, for design of spectrum-shaping circuits which minimise the intersymbol interference in digital transmission and for calculation of transient responses of nonlinear phase-lock loops used for acquisition of carrier phase in PSK detection.
