2 Review of Spectral characteristics Periodic and Non-periodic Signals: A signal is said to be periodic, if it exhibits periodicity. i.e., x(t +T)=x(t), for all values of t. Periodic signal has the property that it is unchanged by a time shift of T. A signal that does not satisfy the above periodicity property is called a non-periodic signal. Periodic signals can be represented using the Fourier Series. Non-periodic signals can be represented using the Fourier Transform. Both Fourier series and Fourier Transform deal with the representation of the signals as a combination of sine and cosine waves.

3 Fourier Series Fourier series: a complicated waveform analyzed into a number of harmonically related sine and cosine functions A continuous periodic signal x(t) with a period T may be represented by: x(t)=Σ k=1 (A k cos kω t + B k sin kω t)+ A 0 Dirichlet conditions must be placed on x(t) for the series to be valid: the integral of the magnitude of x(t) over a complete period must be finite, and the signal can only have a finite number of discontinuities in any finite interval

4 Fourier Series Equations The Fourier series represents a periodic signal T p in terms of frequency components: We get the Fourier series coefficients as follows: The complex exponential Fourier coefficients are a sequence of complex numbers representing the frequency component ω 0 k.

5 Periodic signals represented by Fourier Series have Discrete spectra.

6 The Fourier Transform Fourier transform is used for the non- periodic signals. A Fourier transform converts the signal from the time domain to the spectral domain. Continuous Fourier Transform:

46 46 Introduction FM is the process of varying the frequency of a carrier wave in proportion to a modulating signal. FM is the process of varying the frequency of a carrier wave in proportion to a modulating signal. The amplitude of the carrier is kept constant while its frequency is varied by the amplitude of the modulating signal. The amplitude of the carrier is kept constant while its frequency is varied by the amplitude of the modulating signal. In all types of modulation, the carrier wave is varied by the AMPLITUDE of the modulating signal. In all types of modulation, the carrier wave is varied by the AMPLITUDE of the modulating signal.

61 Narrowband FM and Wideband FM Narrowband FM has only a single pair of significant sidebands. The value of modulation index β <1. Wideband FM has a large number (theoretically infinite) number of sidebands. The value of modulation index β >=1.

62 Generation of Narrowband FM (NBFM) The modulator splits the carrier into two paths. One path is direct. The other path contains a -90 degree phase shift unit and a product modulator. The difference between the signals in the two paths produces the NBFM signal. INTEGRATOR -90 PHASE SHIFTER PRODUCT MODULATOR Σ _ + NBFM WAVE CARRIER WAVE MODULATING WAVE

63 Frequency Modulators A frequency modulator is a circuit that varies carrier frequency in accordance with the modulating signal. There are two types of frequency modulator circuits. (1) Direct FM: Carrier frequency is directly varied by the message through voltage-controlled oscillator. Eg: Varactor diode modulator. (2) Indirect FM: Generate NBFM first, then NBFM is frequency multiplied for targeted Δf. Eg: Armstrong modulator

64 64 FM FM Varactor Modulator

65 The Operation of the Varactor Modulator The info signal is applied to the base of the input transistor and appears amplified and inverted at the collector. This low freq signal passes through the RF choke (L1) and is applied across the varactor diode. Varactor diode behaves as voltage controlled capacitor. When low reverse biased voltage is applied, more capacitance is generated and thus decrease the frequency.

66 When high reverse biased voltage is applied, less capacitance is generated and thus increase the frequency. The varactor diode changes its capacitance in sympathy with the info signal and therefore changes the total value of the capacitance in the tuned circuit. The changing value of capacitance causes the oscillator freq to increase and decrease under the control of the information signal. The output is therefore an FM signal.

67 Armstrong of indrect FM generation In this method the message signal is first subjected to NBFM modulator using a crystal- controlled oscillator for generating carrier. Crystal control provides frequency stability. The NBFM wave is next multiplied in frequency by using a frequency multiplier so as to produce the desired wideband FM.

68 Frequency Demodulator The FM demodulating circuits used to recover the original modulating signal. Any circuit that will convert a frequency variation in the carrier back into a proportional voltage variation can be used to demodulate or detect FM signals. A popular method used for FM demodulation is the Frequency discriminator.

69 Frequency discriminator Output of the Frequency discriminator

70 The Frequency discriminator circuit consists of the slope ciruit followed by the envelope detector. The slope circuit converts the instantaneous frequency variations of the FM input signal to instantaneous amplitude variations. These amplitude variations are rectified by the envelope detector to provide a DC output voltage which varies in amplitude and polarity with the input signal frequency.

76 A random process X(t) is a Gaussian process if for all n and for all (t 1 t 2... t n ), the sequence of random variables { X(t 1 ), X(t 2 )... X(t n ) } has a jointly Gaussian density function. Central limit theorem The sum of a large number of independent and identically distributed(i.i.d) random variables getting closer to Gaussian distribution. Thermal noise can be closely modeled by Gaussian process. Gaussian process

77 Property 1 For Gaussian process, knowledge of the mean(m) and covariance(C) provides a complete statistical description of process. Property 2 If a Gaussian process X(t) is passed through a LTI system, the output of the system is also a Gaussian process. The effect of the system on X(t) is simply reflected by the change in mean(m) and covariance(C) of X(t).

78 Noise Theory Shot noise: It results from the shot effect in the amplifying devices and active device. It is caused by random variation in the arrival of electrons (or holes) at the output of the devices. For diode, the rms shot noise current is given by:

82 Noise Figure Consider a signal source. The signal to noise ratio (SNR) available from the source is given by: Consider that the source is connected to an amplifier with gain G. Since all amplifiers contribute noise, the available output SNR will be less than the SNR of the source.

83 The noise power at the output of the amplifier will be The noise factor F is defined as : When noise factor is expressed in decibels, it is called noise figure. Noise figure = (F) dB = 10logF

84 The noise power expressed in terms of a temperature is callled Noise Temperature. If the amplifier noise is P na, then the equivalent noise temperature T e of the amplifier is given by the equation

The pre-selector is a broad tuned band-pass filter with adjustable center frequency that is tuned to the desired carrier frequency. The other functions of the RF section are detecting, band limiting and amplifying the received RF signals. Mixer/converter section: It is the stage of down- converts the received RF frequencies to intermediate frequencies (IF) which are simply frequencies that fall somewhere between the RF and information frequencies, hence the name intermediate. This section also includes a local oscillator (LO).

87 IF Section: IF or intermediate frequency section is the stage where its primary functions are amplification and selectivity.

Average noise power per unit bandwidth Average noise power per unit bandwidth

89 SNR The signal x(t) available for demodulation is defined by The output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) O is defined as the ratio of the average power of the demodulated message signal to the average power of the noise, both measured at the receiver output. The channel signal-to-noise ratio, (SNR) C is defined as the ratio of the average power of the modulated signal to the average power of the channel noise in the message bandwidth, both measure at the receiver input. For the purpose of comparing different CW modulation systems, we normalize the receiver performance by dividing (SNR)O by (SNR)C. This ratio is called figure of merit for the receiver and is defined as

90 90 Noise in DSB-SC Receivers Lets consider the case of DSB-SC. The expression for the modulated signal is given as The carrier wave is statistically independent of the message signal. The average power of DSB-SC modulated component of s(t) is

91 With a noise PSD of N 0 /2 the average noise power in the message bandwidth W equals WN 0 (baseband scenario). Pm is the power of the message. Hence we have Finding an expression for (SNR) O, we have

92 Output of the LPF is The power of the signal component at the receiver output is. The average power of the filtered noise is 2WN 0. The average noise power at the receiver output is Hence we have,

93 Noise in AM receiver using envelope detection The expression for AM signal is given as where it is assumed that The average power of the carrier in the AM signal s(t) is The average power of the information bearing component is Average power of the full AM signal s(t) is

94 Hence, the channel signal to noise ratio for AM is Finding an expression for (SNR) O, we have

95 Threshold Effect When carrier-to-noise ratio is small as compared to unity the noise term dominates the performance of the envelope detector and is completely different. Representing the narrowband noise n(t) in terms of its envelope and phase, we have The phasor diagram for x(t) = s(t) + n(t) becomes

96 The noise envelope is used as a reference here due to its dominance. Here it is assumed that Ac is small as compared to r(t). If we neglect the quadrature component of the signal with respect to the noise we have Hence, when carrier-to-noise ratio is small the detector has no component that is strictly proportional to the message signal m(t). Recalling that is uniformly distributed over radians. Hence, it follows that we have a complete loss of information at the detector output (as expected value will be zero). This loss of information m(t) at the output of the envelope detector is called the threshold effect.

97 Pre-emphasis and De-emphasis FM results is an unacceptably low SNR at the high frequency end of the message spectrum. To offset this undesirable occurrence, pre-emphasis and de-emphasis technique is used. Pre-emphasis consists in artificially boosting the spectral components in the higher part of the message spectrum. This is accomplished by passing message signal m(t), through the pre-emphasis filter, denoted Hpe(f). The pre- emphasized signal is used to frequency modulate the carrier at the transmitting end. In the receiver, the inverse operation, de-emphasis, is performed. This is accomplished by passing the discriminator output through a filter, called the de-emphasis filter, denoted Hde(f ).

100 Information is a measure of uncertainty. The less is the probability of occurrence of a certain message, the higher is the information. Since the information is closely associated with the uncertainty of the occurrence of a particular symbol, When the symbol occurs the information associated with its occurrence is defined as:

104 Source Coding Theorem Source coding theorem states that the output of any information source having entropy H units per symbol can be encoded into an alphabet having N symbols in such a way that the source symbols are represented by code words having a weighted average length not less than H/logN. Source coding theorem states that the output of any information source having entropy H units per symbol can be encoded into an alphabet having N symbols in such a way that the source symbols are represented by code words having a weighted average length not less than H/logN. Hence source coding theorem says that encoding of messages from a source with entropy H can be done, bounded by the fundamental information theoretic limitation that the Minimum average number of symbols/message is H/logN. Hence source coding theorem says that encoding of messages from a source with entropy H can be done, bounded by the fundamental information theoretic limitation that the Minimum average number of symbols/message is H/logN.

105 Source coding example Prefix coding has an important feature that it is always uniquely decodable and it also satisfies Kraft- McMillan (see formula p. 624) inequality term Prefix coding has an important feature that it is always uniquely decodable and it also satisfies Kraft- McMillan (see formula p. 624) inequality term Prefix codes can also be referred to as instantaneous codes, meaning that the decoding process is achieved immediately Prefix codes can also be referred to as instantaneous codes, meaning that the decoding process is achieved immediately

106 Shannon-Fano Coding: In Shannon–Fano coding, the symbols are arranged in order from most probable to least probable, and then divided into two sets whose total probabilities are as close as possible to being equal. All symbols then have the first digits of their codes assigned; symbols in the first set receive "0" and symbols in the second set receive "1". As long as any sets with more than one member remain, the same process is repeated on those sets, to determine successive digits of their codes. When a set has been reduced to one symbol, of course, this means the symbol's code is complete and will not form the prefix of any other symbol's code.

107 Huffman Coding: Create a list for the symbols, in decreasing order of probability. The symbols with the lowest probability are assigned a 0 and a 1. These two symbols are combined into a new symbol with the probability equal to the sum of their individual probabilities. The new symbol is placed in the list as per its probability value. The procedure is repeated until we are left with 2 symbols only for which 0 and 1 are assigned. Huffman code is the bit sequence obtained by working backwards and tracking sequence of 0s and 1s assigned to that symbol and its successors.

108 Lempel-Ziv Coding: A drawback of Huffman code is that knowledge of probability model of source is needed. Lempel-Ziv coding is used to overcome this drawback. while Huffmans algorithm encodes blocks of fixed size into binary sequences of variable length, Lempel-Ziv encodes blocks of varying length into blocks of fixed size. Lempel-Ziv coding is performed by parsing the source data into segments that are the shortest subsequences not encountered before.

109 Mutual Information Consider a communication system with a source of entropy H(X). The entropy on the receiver side be H(Y). Consider a communication system with a source of entropy H(X). The entropy on the receiver side be H(Y). H(X|Y) and H(Y|X) are the conditional entropies, and H(X,Y) is the joint entropy of X and Y. H(X|Y) and H(Y|X) are the conditional entropies, and H(X,Y) is the joint entropy of X and Y. Then the Mutual information between the source X and the receiver Y can be expressed as: Then the Mutual information between the source X and the receiver Y can be expressed as: I(X,Y) = H(X) - H(X|Y) H(X) is the uncertainty of source X and H(X/Y) is the uncertainty of X given Y. Hence the quantity H(X) - H(X|Y) represents the reduction in uncertainty of X given the knowledge of Y. Hence I(X,Y) is termed mutual information. H(X) is the uncertainty of source X and H(X/Y) is the uncertainty of X given Y. Hence the quantity H(X) - H(X|Y) represents the reduction in uncertainty of X given the knowledge of Y. Hence I(X,Y) is termed mutual information. Source X Channel Receiver Y

110 Channel Capacity Capacity in the channel is defined as a intrinsic ability of a channel to convey information. Capacity in the channel is defined as a intrinsic ability of a channel to convey information. Using mutual information the channel capacity of a discrete memoryless channel is the maximum average mutual information in any single use of channel over all possible probability distributions. Using mutual information the channel capacity of a discrete memoryless channel is the maximum average mutual information in any single use of channel over all possible probability distributions. Thus Channel capacity C=max( I(X,Y) ). Thus Channel capacity C=max( I(X,Y) ).

111 Shannons Channel Coding theorem The Shannon theorem states that given a noisy channel with channel capacity C and information transmitted at a rate R, then if R < C there exist codes that allow the probability of error at the receiver to be made arbitrarily small. This means that theoretically, it is possible to transmit information nearly without error at any rate below a limiting rate, C. The Shannon theorem states that given a noisy channel with channel capacity C and information transmitted at a rate R, then if R < C there exist codes that allow the probability of error at the receiver to be made arbitrarily small. This means that theoretically, it is possible to transmit information nearly without error at any rate below a limiting rate, C. The converse is also important. If R > C, an arbitrarily small probability of error is not achievable. All codes will have a probability of error greater than a certain positive minimal level, and this level increases as the rate increases. So, information cannot be guaranteed to be transmitted reliably across a channel at rates beyond the channel capacity. The converse is also important. If R > C, an arbitrarily small probability of error is not achievable. All codes will have a probability of error greater than a certain positive minimal level, and this level increases as the rate increases. So, information cannot be guaranteed to be transmitted reliably across a channel at rates beyond the channel capacity.

112 Shannon-Hartley theorem or Information Capacity Theorem An application of the channel capacity concept to an additive white Gaussian noise channel with B Hz bandwidth and signal-to-noise ratio S/N is the Information Capacity Theorem. It states that for a band-limited Gaussian channel operating in the presence of additive Gaussian noise, the channel capacity is given by C = B log 2 (1 + S/N) where C is the capacity in bits per second, B is the bandwidth of the channel in Hertz, and S/N is the signal-to-noise ratio.

113 Band width and SNR tradeoff As the bandwidth of the channel increases, it is possible to make faster changes in the information signal, thereby increasing the information rate. However, as B, the channel capacity does not become infinite since, with an increase in bandwidth, the noise power also increases. As S/N increases, one can increase the information rate while still preventing errors due to noise. For no noise, S/N and an infinite information rate is possible irrespective of bandwidth.

114 Implications of the Information Capacity Theorem

115 Rate distortion theory Rate distortion theory is the branch of information theory addressing the problem of determining the minimal amount of entropy or information that should be communicated over a channel such that the source can be reconstructed at the receiver with a given distortion. Rate distortion theory can be used for the given below situations: 1. Source coding in which the coding alphabet cannot exactly represent the source information. 2. when the information is to be transmitted at a rate greater than channel capacity.

116 Lower the bit rate R by allowing some acceptable distortion D of the signal

117 Rate Distortion Function: The functions that relate the rate and distortion are found as the solution of the following minimization problem. In the above equation, I(X,Y) is the Mutual information.

118 Rate distortion function for Gaussian memory-less source If Px(X) is Gaussian, variance is and if we assume that successive samples of the signal x are stochastically independent, we find the following analytical expression for the rate distortion function.

120 Lossy Source Coding Lossy source coding is the representation of the source in digital form with as few bits as possible while maintaining an acceptable loss of information. In lossy source coding, the source output is encoded at a rate less than the source entropy. Hence there is reduction in the information content of the source. Eg: It is not possible to digitally encode an analog signal with a finite number of bits without producing some distortion.
