A new look at the informational gain of soft decisions
This paper develops a new systematic method of studying the benefits of 2-bit soft decisions by applying the concepts of information processing theory. We quantify performance in terms of the information transfer ratio and ...
Optimizing Physical Layer Data Transmission for Minimal Signal Distortion
When transmitting a sampled signal digitally, data and error correction bits must be transmitted at least as fast as the sampling rate. Typically, each bit is allocated the same transmission time interval, which means the ...
Optimizing binary decision systems by manipulating transmission intervals
We study the optimization of a binary decision system where quantized (soft) decisions are transmitted across an additive white Gaussian noise channel. We adjust the bit transmission intervals to maximize the Chernoff ...
