Abstract

Continuous phase modulation (CPM) is known for its attractive spectral properties. Furthermore, CPM has the property that the modulation signal maintains a constant envelope, so CPM is effective for satellite communications. Recently, generalized nonlinear CPM (GNCPM), which can achieve a larger minimum Euclidean distance than ordinary CPM, was introduced. In this paper, we propose a convolutional coded GNCPM to improve the bit error rate (BER) performance of uncoded GNCPM without expanding bandwidth. Combination CPM with convolutional coding causes an increased number of phase trajectory patterns which can cause the bandwidth expansion. Therefore, in our proposed model, to control the bandwidth, we pay attention to the phase trajectory pattern which is already owned by uncoded GNCPM and change the modulation index appropriately, depending on the input symbols, to keep the number of phase trajectory patterns the same as in uncoded GNCPM. First, we consider the most suitable assignment of the modulation index which can increase the Euclidean distances without bandwidth expansion. Next, we theoretically derive the upper bound on the error event probability of the proposed model in additive white Gauss - ian noise (AWGN). The performance of the proposed convolutional GNCPM, obtained by computer simulation, shows that the proposed model can improve BER performance without bandwidth expansion.
