1 Consider a impulse sampling system whose sampling frequency is 500 Hz.
i. Draw the output waveform for a duration 0 to 0.03 Sec., when a sinusoidal signal of frequency f1=50 Hz and peak amplitude 10 volt is given as input signal. (7 Marks)
Draw the output waveform for a duration 0 to 0.03 Sec., when a sinusoidal signal of frequency f2= 550 Hz and peak amplitude 10 volt is given as input signal. (7 Marks)
iii. Compare the outputs and critically analyse reconstruction of original signal from the output samples. (6 Marks)
2 a. Baseband demodulation system in digital communication largely depends on the Eb/N0 ratio. Whether it is possible to have two digital communication systems with same Eb/N0 but with different S/N ratio? Justify your answer with suitable explanations. (4 Marks)
b. A channel is providing a S/N ratio of 30dB. When the bandwidth of signal is 10 KHz, the value of Eb/N0 is found to be 16.99 dB. If same channel is used with same signal bandwidth but with a different data rate. It is observed that the new Eb/N0 is reduced by 75%. Calculate the new value of Eb/N0 and data rate. (16 Marks)
3 A designer is asked to design a digital transmission system where the quantization distortion error of any audio source does not exceed ±1% of the peak-to-peak audio source.
a. If the audio signal bandwidth and the allowable transmission bandwidth are each 8000 Hz, and the sampling takes place at the Nyquist rate, what value of bandwidth efficiency (bits/s/Hz) is required? (9 Marks)
b. Repeat part (a) except that the audio signal bandwidth is now 20 kHz (the available transmission band width is still 8000 Hz). (6 Marks)
c. Find symbol rate in part (a) if 16-level (M=16) M-ary PAM transmission system is used.
4 a. Compare Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK) in terms of its error performance and data rate. (6 Marks)
b. binary data is transmitted over a channel at a rate of f0 bits/sec. To reduce the transmission bandwidth, it is decided to transmit this data using 16-ary symbol.
By what factor is the bandwidth reduced? (4 Mark)
What will be the increase in the transmitted power when the separation between pulse amplitude is same in both cases. Calculate the difference in maximum power level between ASK and 16-ary symbol in this case.
5 a. In a broadcasting system an analog signal is sampled at a rate of 100KHz. The sampled signal is passed through a spectrum analyzer which gives the amplitude of the sampled signal for various frequency values. What will be the signal bandwidth for the following cases:
The gap between the sample spectrum is 100Hz. (3 Marks)
The gap between the sampled spectrum is 5KHz. (3 Marks)
If the sampled spectrum is passed through a low pass filter for reconstruction, which case mentioned in part(i) and (ii) requires less stringent requirement for the low pass filter? Justify your answer. (4 Marks)
b. The data rate of binary Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK) system is 4.8Mbps. Assuming Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel having a bandwidth of 10MHz, the noise present in the channel has zero mean with power spectral density of 10-15W/Hz. If the received signal amplitude is 1mV, determine the average probability of error for the coherent ASK detector.
