N-Ary Coded Modulation

  • Saleh FaruqueEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


This chapter presents a method of multi-level coded modulation where instead of using one code at a time, two or more codes are used simultaneously and then modulated by means of an M-ary modulation scheme. At the receiver, the decoder recovers the data by means of code correlation. This type of coded modulation scheme is bandwidth efficient and further enhances the coding gain.
