    In this paper the authors derive simple approximate formulas for the performance of entropy-encoded DPCM for a Gaussian random process and a frequency-weighted mean-square distortion measure. Using these results they compare the performance of DPCM to the information theoretic rate-distortion bound. They study the effect on the performance of DPCM of the spectrum of the input process, the frequenc... View full abstract»

    Recently bandwidth efficient constant envelope digital modulation schemes have been shown also to be power efficient, if detected coherently. In this paper the performance of such systems is analyzed for an optimum noncoherent or partially coherent detector, at large signal-to-noise ratios. The considered schemes are M-ary with arbitrary pulse shaping over one symbol interval (full response). The ... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a correlation technique in order to accurately measure intermodulation products from repeaters within a short period of time. A pair of PN sequences, whose cross-correlation function has a zero sidelobe has been designed to reduce interference by other products, and to obtain the necessary signal-to-noise ratio (more than 50 dB). As an example, design objectives and results f... View full abstract»

    The theoretical basis for using the mean-square error criterion in channel coding systems has been established previously. Such a criterion leads to an unequal error-correcting system. This paper describes the design methods for translating that theory into practice. It also presents some new results concerning the performance of these types of systems. The relationship of the mean-square system t... View full abstract»

    Conventional designs for the time-multiplexed space-division switch used in PCM switching networks employ spatial redundancy (duplication) to assure adequate reliability. An alternative technique is described which employs a combination of coding redundancy and holographic temporal scattering to achieve reliability without duplication. View full abstract»

    In sharp contrast to the task of calculating the power spectrum for a general digital FM scheme, the autocorrelation can easily be obtained. By considering a class of FM schemes having a time-limited autocorrelation function, truncation is avoided and, applying a Fourier transformation, power spectral densities are easily obtained. A method is applied taking these properties into account. Thus, a ... View full abstract»

    In a frequency-division multiple-access (FDMA) satellite communication system, the output power of the TWT (or FET) amplifier is backed from saturation to reduce the intermodulation distortion caused by AM/AM and AM/PM nonlinearities. The required amount of backoff can be considerable, wasting valuable satellite power, unless some scheme is used to compensate for these nonlinearities. A comparativ... View full abstract»

    The idea of `zero-crossing FM detection' has Stumpers (1948) been extended to analyze the phenomena of FM threshold. The position and number of zero-crossings is used to derive various formulas for calculation of noise power due to clicks in the presence of narrow-band Gaussian noise. A two-state Markov model of the zero-crossing model for `clicks' is given. View full abstract»

    The interaction is studied between the effects of tree searching and predictor and quantizer adaptation in a differential pulse-code modulation (DPCM) speech digitizer. The maximum entropy method computes a new source model every 8 ms, and a variety of strategies are used to adapt the quantizer. Results are displayed in plots of local SNR versus time. It is found that the predictor, the quantizer,... View full abstract»

    Even in noiseless optical channels one must take into account the fact that the time resolution available is finite. An optimization scheme under the constraint of a given information rate (in nats/second) and minimum time-slot resolution is presented. It is shown that system efficiencies in excess of tens of nats/phonon will be extremely difficult to achieve due to fundamental time resolution lim... View full abstract»
