In this paper, we consider dual carrier modulation (DCM) used in multi-band orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) standard. At the transmitter, DCM transforms two successive QPSK symbols to two 16-QAM symbols with a certain mapping and they are decoded at the receiver by the maximum likelihood (ML) rule. When the QPSK symbols are transformed into two 16-QAM symbols, the original proposed form is to use two different mappings which is not Gray mapping but optimized in the sense of… CONTINUE READING
