Baseband Modulation Codes

  • Jan W. M. Bergmans


Baseband modulation codes are widely applied in such diverse fields as digital line transmission [21, 28, 18, 116], digital optical transmission [111, 16], and digital magnetic and optical storage [ 105, 100, 106]. They act to translate the source data sequence d n into a sequence a k that is transmitted across the channel (Fig. 4.1; see also Chapter 3). The principal goal is to enable the receiver to produce reliable decisions \({\hat d_n}\) about d n . Code design should, therefore, account for the characteristics of both channel and receiver. (Because modulation coding is the only type of coding that we consider in this chapter, we shall usually say ‘coding’ where we mean ‘modulation coding’.)
