Digital Communication

N.I(1) Question No.1 is compulsory.

(2) Attempt any four  out of remaining six questions.

1. (a) Draw block diagrams of encoder and decoder of DEPSK. The bit stream d(t) is to be transmitted using DEPSK. If d(t) is 001010011010, determine b(t) which is output of encoder, show that decoder recovers d(t). Show that if the fourth bit in b{t) is in error, then fourth and ,fifth data bits of d(t) will also be in error.
