- 60. Example 8Example 8 A constellation diagram consists of eight equally spaced points on a circle. If the bit rate is 4800 bps, what is the baud rate? SolutionSolution The constellation indicates 8-PSK with the points 45 degrees apart. Since 23 = 8, 3 bits are transmitted with each signal unit. Therefore, the baud rate is 4800 / 3 = 1600 baud 63
- 61. Compute the bit rate for a 1000-baud 16-QAM signal. SolutionSolution A 16-QAM signal has 4 bits per signal unit since log216 = 4. Thus, (1000)(4) = 4000 bps Example 9Example 9 64

- 66. Digital Transmission Methods 69 • Nonreturn to Zero • Unipolar • Bipolar • Return to zero • Unipolar • Bipolar • Bipolar-AMI • Manchester
- 67. Nonreturn to Zero 70 • the signal remains at the binary level assigned to it for the entire bit time. • the voltage does not return to zero during the binary 1 interval • normally generated inside computers, at low speeds, when asynchronous transmission is being used.
- 68. Nonreturn to Zero - Bipolar 71 • A bipolar NRZ signal has two polarities, positive and negative. • The voltage levels are +12 and -12 V. • The popular RS-232 serial computer interface uses bipolar NRZ, where a binary 1 is a negative voltage between -3 and -25 V and a binary 0 is a voltage between +3 and +25 V.
- 69. Return to Zero - Unipolar 72 • The binary 1 level occurs for 50 percent of the bit interval, and the remaining bit interval is zero. • Only one polarity level is used. • Pulses occur only when a binary 1 is transmitted; no pulse is transmitted for a binary 0.
- 70. Return to Zero - Bipolar 73 • A 50 percent bit interval 13-V pulse is transmitted during a binary 1, and a 23-V pulse is transmitted for a binary 0. • Because there is one clearly discernible pulse per bit, it is extremely easy to derive the clock from the transmitted data. • For that reason, bipolar RZ is preferred over unipolar RZ.
- 71. Return to Zero – Bipolar AMI 74 • During the bit interval, binary 0s are transmitted as no pulse. • Binary 1s, also called marks, are transmitted as alternating positive and negative pulses. • One binary 1 is sent as a positive pulse, the next binary 1 as a negative pulse, the next as a positive pulse, and so on.
- 72. Manchester 75 • Also referred to as biphase encoding, can be unipolar or bipolar. • A binary 1 is transmitted first as a positive pulse, for one half of the bit interval, and then as a negative pulse, for the remaining part of the bit interval. • A binary 0 is transmitted as a negative pulse for the first half of the bit interval and a positive pulse for the second half of the bit interval
- 73. Manchester 76 • The fact that there is a transition at the center of each 0 or 1 bit makes clock recovery very easy. • However, because of the transition in the center of each bit, the frequency of a Manchester-encoded signal is two times an NRZ signal, doubling the bandwidth requirement. • It is widely used in LANs.
