(2) Answer any four of the remaining questions.

(3) Draw diagram wherever necessary.

(4) Assume suitable data, if necessary.


1.(a) Differentiate between –

(i) QASK and QPSK (ii) Systematic and Non Systematic Codes

(b) What is duo Binary encoding,? Explain with neat diagram. How does duobinary encoding reduce BW requirement.


2. (a) A DMS has five symbols with probabilities 0.2,0.2, OJ, 0.35 and 0.15 respectively. Co~ct H~ code and calculatecode efficiency.Repeat for ShannonFano code.

(b) Explain with neat-block diagram- the principle of working of non-coherent FSK. receiver. – ,
