Abstract: This paper presents microcontroller based schematic circuit design of a complete duobinary encoder (duobinary code from binary bit) and duobinary. Duobinary coding is a partial response signal: certain amount of ISI is not suppressed by the equalizer but rather left for a simple detector to. In telecommunication, bipolar encoding is a type of return-to-zero (RZ) line code, where two nonzero values are used, so that the three values are +, −, and zero. Such a signal is called a duobinary signal.

Another benefit of bipolar encoding compared to unipolar is error detection. Other systems must synchronize using some form of out-of-band communication, or add frame synchronization sequences that don’t carry data to the signal.

The interference condition is controlled by the difference between distances travelled by these two waves between the point of separation and the point of recombination. A M-Z interferometer comprises a pair of codng channels, or arms, connected between an optical wave-guide splitter and a wave-guide combiner. Thus, the duobinary signal has one half the transmission bandwidth of the binary signal for encoding the same information.

On the decoder side, this extra ‘1’ added duobbinary the coder is removed, recreating the correct data. This simplifies the decoding rule, in that the receiver makes each binary decision based only on the current received sample, the ISI still being controlled.

The location of BPV is not necessarily the location of the original error.

The output sequence y 0,1,-1 is input to driver 7 which provides the driving signal 12 on electrode 19 of modulator 9. Transmission and reception of duobinary multilevel pulse-amplitude-modulated optical signals using finite-state machine-based encoder.


This encoding is otherwise identical. This is done in such a way that the only allowed transitions at the output are from “1”, to any number of “0”s and to “-1”, or vice versa. While the invention has been described with reference to particular example embodiments, further modifications and improvements vuobinary will occur to those skilled in the art, may be made within the purview of the appended claims, without departing from the scope of the invention in its broader aspect.

The light source is optically coupled to the wave-guide splitter, which serves as a Y-branch splitter or directional coupler. Unipolar encoding Bipolar encoding On-off keying. Examples of input bit sequences that give similar duobinary sequences Prior Art. dukbinary

There is also a need for a modulation method which may codng used efficiently in high speed operation, is voltage efficient and suitable for use with a duobinary coding technique to obtain a reduced bandwidth of the transmitted signal and prolongs the lifespan of the external modulator.

The optical signal exhibits characteristics that meet the requirements of existing SDH and SONET interface standards, and therefore a conventional receiver cuobinary required for reception. Duobinary signaling uses two levels for the non-zero signals, for example, “-1” and “1”, resulting in three symbols: Year of fee payment: References [2], [3] and [4] disclose a modulation xuobinary whereby two intensity levels are obtained after modulation of a carrier signal with a duobinary sequence.

An optical modulator comprising: Thus, the line always returns to the “zero” level to denote optionally a separation of bits or to denote idleness of the line. B-MACand essentially all family members of the Multiplexed Analogue Components Television Transmission family used Duobinary to encode the digital audio, teletext, closed captioning and selective access for distribution.

As well, the E-field has no component at the carrier frequency. In addition, decoding errors tend to propagate in the system according to this solution. The recombined light exits the output port of the wave-guide combiner and is then optically coupled to an optical fiber for transmission.

As such, the push-pull configuration utilizes the drive voltage more efficiently than the one arm modulation in that, for a given voltage, twice the net phase shift is effected. An input bit “0” results in a “0” output bit. However, long sequences of zeroes remain an issue. It is an object of this invention to provide a duobinary coing and modulation technique for optical communication systems which reduces the drawbacks inherent with the prior art techniques.

In both above modulation techniques, the two beams arrive at the wave-guide combiner in phase in the absence of a modulating voltage, giving an intensity maximum or an “on” condition.

Figure 1 illustrates the blocks used to perform the duobinary coding and modulation operations according to the invention. The two light beams from the splitter travel through the wave-guide arms and are reunited by the wave-guide combiner.
