Abstract:

The results of an analysis were used to specify an optimum receiver for the reception of frequency-shift-keyed signals which experience Rayleigh fading and additive Gaussian white receiver noise. This receiver was instrumented, through use of simulation techniques, to evaluate experimentally the performance of such a system. The measurements resulted in a family of curves giving the probability of transmission error as a f ncti n of the ratio of signal energy per bit to noise power density with the keying interval as a parameter. The results s wed an improvement over existing FSK receivers. Author 0
