General Information

Modems for portable radio terminals must take advantage of state-of-the-art digital communications in order to stay commercially competitive. In particular they need to utilize less bandwidth and power for a fixed data rate. The approach here is to employ a parallel configuration of highly efficient error control codes, together with bandwidth efficient continuous phase modulation (CPM). The theoretical performance of such a system is to be investigated using a novel information-theoretic technique, and the system will be optimised in terms of coding scheme and CPM complexity.
