Topic: Constellation diagram


  
  Quadrature amplitude modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As for many digital modulation schemes, the constellation diagram is a useful representation and is relied upon in this article.
Rectangular QAM constellations are, in general, sub-optimal in the sense that they do not maximally space the constellation points for a given energy.
The circular 8-QAM constellation is known to be the optimal 8-QAM constellation in the sense of requiring the least mean power for a given minimum Euclidean distance.

 Modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In digital modulation, the changes in the signal are chosen from a fixed list (the modulation alphabet) each entry of which conveys a different possible piece of information (a symbol).
The alphabet is often conveniently represented on a constellation diagram.
In analog modulation, the change is applied continuously in response to the data signal.

 Draco Constellation. Mythology - Crystalinks
Draco is an extended constellation of the northern hemisphere.
The origin of the constellation, Draco, and of most dragon lore as well, was probably the female Chaldean dragon Tiamat, the sea serpent who existed even before the sea and sky had been divided from each other, the dragon of chaos.
Theorists predicted that the light from these primordial stars would be "stretched" by the expansion of the universe, so would exist not on the ultraviolet region of the spectrum but in the lower energies of the infrared region.

A constellation diagram is a representation of the Argand plane, with one axis representing the amplitude of the complex component of a wave, and the other the imaginary.
Symbols in the transmitter's alphabet can be mapped onto the constellation diagram by means of their real and imaginary components.
The greater the separation between the symbols on the Argand diagram, the less likely it is that a received signal will be misinterpreted.

 New Test Approaches for ZIF Transceiver Devices
However, the constellation diagram, which must be analyzed to get the EVM value, offers a wealth of information.
In the second case, a circular smearing is evident, causing the constellation to appear as though it is rotating in time.
As is evident from Figure 4, constellation diagrams and the use of EVM calculations can replace numerous functional block tests and still provide good diagnostic information for the resolution of device maladies.

 The Impact of Various PLL Parameters
The constellation diagram shows the relative phases of the I (in phase) and Q (in quadrature -- 90 degrees phase shift) signals.
Each point on the constellation diagram corresponds to a different symbol, which could represent multiple bits.
It should also be clear from this constellation diagram interpretation of RMS phase error that higher order modulation schemes are more subject to the RMS phase error of the PLL.

 Radio
Since the energy of an individual photon of radio frequency is too low to remove an electron from an atom, radio waves are classified as non-ionizing radiation.
Electromagnetic radiation travels (propagates) by means of oscillating electromagnetic fields that pass through the air and the vacuum of space equally well, and does not require a medium of transport (such as the aether).
Soon, the U.S. Navy experimented with satellite navigation, culminating in the invention and launch of the GPS constellation in 1987.

 Constellation Plot add in for ModelSim
After demodulation, the signal is usually represented as an in-phase and a quadrature component, representing the amplitude of cosine and sine components respectively.
It is very helpful to view these signals on a so-called "constellation" diagram, also known as a polar plot or Argand diagram - a 2-dimensional representation with in-phase on the X axis and quadrature on the Y axis.
Our constellation plot add-in is an example of how to add custom GUI functionality to ModelSim, providing a display that's not possible in the standard simulator product.

 Beating Impairments with Cable Modem Tests
Figure 1 shows a constellation diagram of an unimpaired cable modem signal.
The constellation diagram displays the complex amplitude and phase components of the received cable modem signal on a two-dimensional (X-Y coordinate) display, where each defined point represents multiple bits of user data.
This results in the cable modem exhibiting an increased error rate as the information represented by a constellation point is altered during transmission over the HFC network.

 What Exactly is 8-VSB Anyway?
The eye diagram is the overlay of many traces of the received RF signal amplitude at the instant of sampling.
Since the RF signal must attain one of eight possible levels whenever a sampling time occurs (somewhat like when the music stops in the game of musical chairs), the convergence of the many signal traces forms seven "eyes" that coincide with the occurrence of clock pulses in the receiver.
Our signal constellation diagram is therefore a series eight vertical lines that correspond to our eight transmitted amplitude levels.

 Time [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Feynman diagrams in particle physics were described by Feynman himself as illustrating how a particle's moving forward in time is actually its antiparticle moving backward in time.
A Minkowski spacetime diagram displays only what happens before what, but not which time is present time, or past, or future.
What is missing from the diagram, say Chisholm and Prior, is some moving point on the time axis representing the observer's "now" as time flows up the diagram.

Figure 4-10 shows the constellation diagram for QPSK and the symbol mapping for each phase angle and amplitude vector.
The effect of interleaving is to distribute the errors due to a noise burst over a period of time so that the errored bits are no longer adjacent, which makes FEC more effective.
As noise is introduced into a QAM or VSB signal, it perturbs the points on the constellation diagram so that ultimately they overlap and the decoder sees the wrong symbol.
