Executive Summary

This paper provides new insight into the classical problem of determining both the capacity of the discrete-time channel with uniform output quantization and the capacity achieving input distribution. It builds on earlier work by Gallager and Witsenhausen to provide a detailed analysis of two particular quantization schemes. The first is saturation quantization where overflows are mapped to the nearest quantization bin, and the second is wrapping quantization where overflows are mapped to the nearest quantization bin after reduction by some modulus. Both the capacity of wrapping quantization and the capacity achieving input distribution are determined.
