Continued investigation of tamed FM (TFM) has led to an extension called generalized tamed FM (GTFM). The very narrow spectral property of a GTFM signal meets the stringent requirements on bandwidth utilization in modern mobile radio applications. The principle of GTFM is first described. It is then shown that the generation of GTFM signals can be made very simple by the use of an ROM table-lookup technique. By an appropriate choice of parameters in GTFM signal generation at the transmitter, a joint optimization for coherent and noncoherent detection with regard to BER performance in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise can be achieved. For mobile radio applications, the robustness of the detection scheme to fast fading is important. A low-complexity noncoherent receiver is presented, comprising a frequency discriminator and a simple maximum-likelihood sequence estimator. This receiver performs well in a fast fading environment. Computer simulated results of BER performance of this scheme are given. These results are confirmed by experimental measurements.
