In TETRA specifications, one of the modulation technique used is Differential 8 Phase Shift Keying (D8PSK). We will discuss the bit error rate with non-coherent demodulation of D8PSK in Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel.
pi/8 D8PSK
The incoming bit sequence is grouped into three bits and is mapped into differential phase as follows:
B(3k-2) | B(3k-1) | B(3k) | |
0 | 0 | 0 | |
0 | 0 | 1 | |
1 | 0 | 1 | |
1 | 0 | 0 | |
0 | 1 | 0 | |
0 | 1 | 1 | |
1 | 1 | 1 | |
1 | 1 | 0 |
Table : Phase transitions for D8PSK modulation (Ref Table 5.2 of ETSI 301-893 V3.2.1)
The modulation symbol is formed by applying a phase offset to previous symbol and is defined as follows:
and
.
Alternately, the phase transitions can be represented as
.
The constellation of the D8PSK occupies phase values separated by as shown below in the blue dots. The red lines shows all possible phase transitions.

Channel Model
The transmitted waveform gets corrupted by noise , typically referred to as Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN).
Additive : As the noise gets ‘added’ (and not multiplied) to the received signal
White : The spectrum of the noise if flat for all frequencies.
Gaussian : The values of the noise follows the Gaussian probability distribution function,
with mean and
variance .
The received symbol is,
Non Coherent Receiver
A non-coherent receiver relies on the phase transitions between consecutive symbols to form an estimate of the transmitted bits. The sequence of operation is as follows:
a) On the received symbols estimate the phase
b) Find the delta of the estimated phase between consecutive symbols
c) Quantize the estimated delta phase values lying from as follows and convert to bits per the following encoding:
.
Simulation results
The script performs the following
(a) Generate random binary sequence of +1′s and 0′s.
(b) Group three bits together and apply D8PSK modulation
(c) Add white Gaussian noise.
(d) At the receiver, estimate the phase of the received symbols. Based on the delta of the received phase, estimate the transmitted bits
(e) Repeat for multiple values of and plot the simulation and theoretical results.

Comments
As I did not find the theoretical BER equations for D8PSK, was unable to compare it with the simulated results.

There are all sorts of claims being made about the benefits of far infrared saunas, so read on to discover
what all the hype is about. We seem to be living
in a time in which the interest in alternative types of health care and healing modalities is at an all-time high.
Research continues as they are trying this method as a means of offering health and well-being to many people who suffer various health conditions.
Shopping online is an activity anyone can do, at
any time of day. Then if any signs of dehydration such as thirst, dry skin, dry mouth,
or decreased urine are noticed, the amount of water intake should be increased.
The bugs find it much more difficult to grow in a dry environment.
Unlike conventional saunas, you don’t have to have a lot of space to
have one. It was not and I almost made the mistake of buying a ceramic sauna
which would have been a costly mistake. Since the body can lose up to a quart of fluid
during a single session, a start is to definitely replace that quart.
– Infrared saunas enhance circulation in the human body,
which will help improve the body’s overall perform.
The hot skin warms up the blood vessels quickly,
carrying the warm deeper into the body. It is also responsible
for the shining beauty and flawless skin texture.

I need new topic, please~~~
nice information. every student should follow. i personally suggest my students.
Great pieces of Information
@Hemant : Thanks, I reckon I know you
just seen this blog no idea
