New Approach to Spectral Analysis of High Bit Rate PCM Signals

Authors: J. P. Dubois


Pulse code modulation is a widespread technique in digital communication with significant impact on existing modern and proposed future communication technologies. Its widespread utilization is due to its simplicity and attractive spectral characteristics. In this paper, we present a new approach to the spectral analysis of PCM signals using Riemann-Stieltjes integrals, which is very accurate for high bit rates. This approach can serve as a model for similar spectral analysis of other competing modulation schemes.

Keywords: Coding, power spectral density, discrete Fourier, pulse code modulation, Riemann-Stieltjes integrals
