We investigate the performance of coded modulation scheme based on the application of integer codes to triangular quadrature amplitude modulation (TQAM). An upper and a lower bounds for symbol error probability (SER) in the case of AWGN channel are derived. These bounds are so closed that it makes the calculation of the exact value of SER unnecessary in practice.
