New Pulse Shapes for CPM Signals

Doyuran, Enis
Tanık, Yalçın
A study on finding new pulse shapes for binary CPM (Continuous Phase Modulation) signals to achieve better spectral and detection performance is carried out. Under the constraint that the power spectral density stays below the GSM spectral envelope, pulse shape is optimized to minimize the error probability. Polynomials are utilized in representing pulse shapes. The performance depends on the degree of the polynomials and the pulse length (L). With 8(th) degree polynomials having 4 free parameters, optimization is performed for the case L = 3. The performance of the CPM signal, having the pulse shape found by optimization, is compared with that of GMSK, currently being used as the GSM modulation scheme, and a gain of 1.1 dB is obtained with the optimum pulse shape (L = 3). Increasing pulse length, much better results are attained. With L = 7, the gain goes up to 2.3 dB with a considerable decrease in the sidelobes.


Improvements to neural network based restoration in optical networks
Türk, Fethi; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
Performance of neural network based restoration of optical networks is evaluated and a few possible improvements are proposed. Neural network based restoration is simulated with optical link capacities assigned by a new method. Two new improvement methods are developed to reduce the neural network size and the restoration time of severed optical connections. Cycle based restoration is suggested, which reduces the neural network structure by restoring the severed connections for each optical node, iterativel...
New dimension reduction technique for brain decoding
Afrasiyabi, Arman; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2015)
A new architecture for dimension reduction, analyzing and decoding the discriminative information, distributed in function Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data, is proposed. This architecture called Sparse Temporal Mesh Model (STMM) which consists of three phases with a visualization tool. In phase A, a univariate voxel selection method, based on the assumption that voxels are independent, is used to select the informative voxels among the whole brain voxels. For this purpose, one of feature selection met...
A High Performance PWM Algorithm for Common Mode Voltage Reduction in Three-phase Voltage Source Inverters
Uen, Emre; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2008-06-19)
A high performance PWM algorithm with reduced common mode voltage (CMV) and satisfactory overall performance is proposed for three-phase PWM inverter drives. The algorithm combines the near state PWM (NSPWM) method which has superior overall performance characteristics at high modulation index and MAZSPWM, a modified form of the active zero state PWM method (AZSPWM1), which is suitable for low modulation index range of operation. Since AZSPWM1 has line-to-line voltage pulse reversals with small zero-voltage...
Improvements in DOA estimation by array interpolation in non-uniform linear arrays
Yaşar, Temel Kaya; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis a new approach is proposed for non-uniform linear arrays (NLA) which employs conventional subspace methods to improve the direction of arrival (DOA) estimation performance. Uniform linear arrays (ULA) are composed of evenly spaced sensor elements located on a straight line. ULA's covariance matrix have a Vandermonde matrix structure, which is required by fast subspace DOA estimation algorithms. NLA differ from ULA only by some missing sensor elements. These missing elements cause some gaps in...

Külah, Haluk; Akın, Tayfun (1998-09-24)
This paper reports a new, high performance CMOS readout structure, called Current Mirroring Integration (CMI), for high-resolution infrared Focal Plane Array (FPA) applications. Using the integration capacitance outside the FPA, the unit cell area is decreased, making the circuit suitable for high-resolution applications. Moreover, the readout circuit offers high injection efficiency, perfect (almost-zero) detector bias, and large dynamic range in a small pixel area. The circuit provides a maximum charge st...
