Bandwidth-Performance Tradeoffs for a Transmission with Concurrent Signals


Aminata A. Garba, Carnegie Mellon University, USA


We consider a bandwidth-efficient transmission scheme, where two signals are sent concurrently. The BER and the achievable minimum distances for the signals’ constellations at the receivers are derived as functions of the signals’ energies and their input probability distributions. Finally, trade-offs between bandwidth, signals’ energies and achievable performances are discussed.
