In this experiment the bit error rate (BER) vs
of QPSK over an AWGN channel is analyzed.
QPSK / 4-QAM transmission - Monte Carlo simulation of bit error rate for AWGN channel.
For best simulation performance this equivalent baseband simulation applies no pulse shaping and uses one sample per symbol.
The simulation starts with a setting of
. This yields to this bit error probability:
Measured BER approximates the analytical bit error probability
Bit error probability
Analytical bit error probability
. Measure the corresponding BER and compare it to the analytical bit error probability.
