Multiple symbol differential detection for trellis-coded MPSK over Rayleigh fading channels Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper presents a multiple-symbol differential detection scheme for coded and interleaved transmission of MPSK data. The performance of this scheme is then evaluated for transmission of digitized voice over a Rayleigh fading channel. It is found that in terms of bit error rate, the improvement given by using multiple-symbol differential detection is minimal, but when evaluated in terms of frame-error rate, the multiple-symbol scheme gives about 1.25-dB improvement. Another 0.75-dB improvement can be obtained by also using a serial list Viterbi algorithm.
