Single sideband quadrature amplitude modulation

  • A. B. Kokhanov


Anew modulation scheme—single sideband quadrature amplitude modulation (SSB QAM) is proposed. This scheme allows to decrease the spectral width of the transferred signal by two times as opposed to the traditional quadrature amplitude modulation, while maintaining its spectral efficiency. This allows transmitting the modulated signal with the spectral width, which is equal to the spectral width of the modulating signal, and providing an energy gain of about 3 dB.
