Extended Method of Digital Modulation Recognition and Its Testing
MetadataShow full item record
The paper describes a new method for the classification of digital modulations. ASK, 2FSK, 4FSK, MSK, BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK and 16QAM were chosen for recognition as best known digital modulations used in modern communication technologies. The maximum value of the spectral power density of the normalized-centered instantaneous amplitude of the received signal is used to discriminate between frequency modulations (2FSK, 4FSK and MSK) on one hand and amplitude and phase modulations (ASK, BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK and 16QAM) on the other hand. Then the 2FSK, 4FSK and MSK modulations are classified by means of spectrums. The histograms of the instantaneous phase are used to discriminate between ASK, BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK and 16QAM. The method designed was tested with simulated and measured signals corrupted by white Gaussian noise.
