Dual Amplitude-Width PPM for Free Space Optical Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The PPM (Pulse Position Modulation) is commonly used in Free Space Optic (FSO) systems owing to its power efficiency, but it shows a rapid decline in spectral efficiency with increase in the power efficiency and moderate data rate. In order to improve these two parameters, the authors present a modified modulation scheme of the existing PPM, on the basis of PPM, PAM (Pulse Amplitude Modulation) and PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). This modified version called DAWPPM (Dual Amplitude-Width PPM). The average power requirements, bandwidth efficiency and normalized data rate are studied after introducing symbol structure.
