Modulation and Coding for Noncoherent Communications

  title={Modulation and Coding for Noncoherent Communications},
  author={Michael L. McCloud and Mahesh K. Varanasi},
  journal={VLSI Signal Processing},
Until recently, the theory of noncoherent communications was premised on the use of orthogonal multi-pulse modulation such as frequency shift keying. The main drawback of this modulation scheme has been its poor spectral efficiency (rate/bandwidth). This paper considers instead the more general non-orthogonal multi-pulse modulation (NMM) technique. Optimal and suboptimal noncoherent detection strategies for NMM are reviewed and their asymptotic (high SNR) performances are characterized for the… CONTINUE READING
