Semianalytic bit error rate (BER) estimation is a well-known method for evaluating the BER of a digital communication system. The main utility of the method is the significant time savings in computation relative to Monte Carlo simulation. Despite this advantage, no known reference defines the procedure for computing exact BER for M-ary phase shift keying (PSK) with ISI and AWGN using the semianalytic method. This letter defines an efficient procedure for computing exact semianalytic BER for modulation formats with circular constellations when the noise component of the decision variable has a circularly symmetric Gaussian distribution. The technique is demonstrated for 8PSK over the Digital Video Broadcasting-Satellite-Second Generation (DVB-S2) channel.
