Continuous phase modulation (CPM) signals may be precoded by a convolutional code followed by a mapping rule. Better codes may, however, be obtained by a more general code formed by a finite state machine. We provide improved codes for one such finite state machine. A new description of codes and design rules are presented. Better results are demonstrated for the partial response CPM schemes and previous optimum results are matched for the full response case. Tests of an M-algorithm decoder achieve near maximum-likelihood performance with only a fraction of the complexity of the Viterbi algorithm
