N.B.(1) Question NO.1 is ,compulsory.

(2) Attempt any four questions out of remai,ningsix questic;>ns.

(3) Assume any suitable data wherever required but justify the same.


1. Attempt any four from the following :-

(d) Distinguish between Matched filter and CoreJator.Holt\f.they are relate~ to each other?

(e) What is the necessity of spread spectrum modulation?Differentiate between slow frequency hopping and fast frequency hopping.


2. (a). Cpnsider a binary input-output channels shown below: 5


If the source symbols are equiprobable, find the receiver probability distribution pry] and the Joint probability distribution P[XY].


 (b) A discrete memoryless source has an alphabet of five symbol with there probabilities as shown:

(i) Construct a Shannon-Fano code  for the source and calculate code efficiency Y and redundancy of the code.

(ii) Repeat the same for Huffman Code

(iii) Compare the Huffman and Shannon-Fano Code.
