Phase Noise Effect on M-ary PSK Trellis Codes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The performance of M-ary phase-shift keying (PSK) coded systems in the presence of added white Gaussian noise (AWGN), with a noisy carrier reference in the receiver, is examined. The results are obtained by combining the Chernoff bound technique with the generating function approach. The bit error probability analysis is carried out for 8- and 16-PSK with code rates of 2/3 and 3/4, respectively. The numerical results obtained demonstrate the error performance degradation due to a Tikhonov phase noise process with parameter α
