Download free e-book on error probability in AWGN

Posted By __Krishna Sankar__ On October 1, 2008 @ 9:42 pm In __Modulation__ | __339 Comments__

We have quite a few articles discussing bit and symbol error rates for popular digital modulation schemes in **A**dditive **W**hite **G**aussian **N**oise (**AWGN**) channel. This post summarizes the articles discussing the **theoretical** and **simulated** **error rates** for the digital modulation schemes like **BPSK**, **QPSK**, **4**-**PAM**, **16PSK and** **16QAM**. Further, Bit Error Rate with **Gray coded** mapping, bit error rate for BPSK over **OFDM** are also discussed.

The links to the individual articles and the **Matlab**/**Octave** **simulation models** are listed below. Alternatively, I have made a **e-book** discussing all the below mentioned articles to a single PDF file. If you wish, you can download the **free e-book** by subscribing to the **free email newsletter**.
