    A recursive procedure is derived for decoding of rate R = 1/n binary convolutional codes which minimizes the probability of the individual decoding decisions for each information bit, subject to the constraint that the decoding delay be limited to Δ branches. This new decoding algorithm is similar to, but somewhat more complex than, the Viterbi decoding ... View full abstract»

    Signal sets employing amplitude and phase keying (APK) with large alphabets conserve bandwidth and do not require as high a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) as phase-shift keying (PSK). Twenty-nine empirically generated APK sets with M -ary alphabet sizes from 4 to 128 are investigated to determine optimum designs. Selected sets are compared on the basis of a symbol...

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1096 KB)  

    In multipath environments in which there is a compact concentration of the values of time-delay-difference (TDD) between signals arriving over each of the indirect paths and the direct path, it is possible, by suitably choosing frequency differences, to design a frequency diversity system in which the diversity branches are negatively correlated. This results in a reduced probability of simultaneo... View full abstract»

    A new 1-for-10 line protection switching system called LPSS-3 has been developed for the L5 coaxial system. Reliability and economic considerations dictate maximum switching spans of 150 mi. Control is primarily by integrated-circuit logic. The line switches use microwave switching diodes to achieve the required pass, modulation, and isolation characteristics. Switching is initiated when temperatu... View full abstract»

  • Interchannel Interference in Walsh Multiplex Systems

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (728 KB)  

    Interchannel interference in multiplexing systems using Walsh-function carriers is considered. In such systems excessive sequency bandwidth of input signals or synchronization errors destroy orthogonality between received signals and demodulating functions, causing crosstalk. The former cause is studied using Yuen's integration-by-parts method, while for the latter correlation of Walsh functions i... View full abstract»

    The L5 line connecting equipment fulfills several functions, including the routing of jumbogroup signals for through, branched, or terminal connections of the message service on the line. Any combination of three jumbogroup signals may be sent along the through route, branched directly to another route, or dropped locally to a multiplex terminal.

    In PCM transmission systems, ensuring repeater timing and regenerative capabilities requires monitored enforcement of the ones density of the line waveform. One possible corrective monitor action is to pre-empt information bits and insert ones when necessary, and thus introduce errors into the pulse stream. The analysis of the resultant error rates for classes of digital and analog implementations... View full abstract»

    The present paper considers discrete time analyses of firstand second-order digital phase lock loops. These loops are characterized by the fact that they track the zero crossings of the incoming signal; consequently, the sampling intervals are nonuniform. The firstorder loop is analyzed for phase step and frequency step inputs; mean time to skip cycle is also considered. For phase step input, appr... View full abstract»

    Repeatered line design for long-haul coaxial systems centers about the equalization of the 4000-mi (6400-km) cable loss. In the L5 system, which provides 10 800 toll grade quality message channels on a pair of 0.375-in (9.5-mm) coaxials, this loss is over 120 000 dB at the highest message frequencies and is compensated with a variety of fixed and adjustable equalizers distributed along the coaxial...

    The residual transmission deviation of the L5 repeatered line can be divided into two categories, static or time invariant and dynamic or time variant. The static deviation, which is due to design limitations and manufacturing deviations of the basic and regulating repeaters, is compensated for by manually adjustable equalizers designated E1 and View full abstract»

    The Jumbogroup Multiplex (JMX) translates basic jumbogroup signals to and from L5 line frequencies. Each of the three jumbogroups contains six mastergroups, any of which may be analog (600 voice channels) or digitally derived (13.29 Mb/s). In addition to frequency translation, the JMX provides regulation and equalization on a jumbogroup basis and automatic 1-for-1 protection. Terminal noise perfor... View full abstract»

    The time information for source-encoded, or compressed, sampled time functions is treated as a two-symbol source, the symbols corresponding to redundant and nonredundant samples. The entropy of this source for both the statistically independent symbol model and the Markov model is used as a reference for the comparison of time codes. Time encoding schemes are classified into two categories: total ... View full abstract»

    The correlation of the transfer function taken simultaneously at two different frequencies is computed for a random surfacescatter channel. The analysis is limited to transmission in the specular direction but uses a Fresnel-corrected model. It is therefore applicable to channels excited by a wide beam transmitter. Using this model it is possible to explain why in certain circumstances channel act... View full abstract»
