Digital Emission Spectrum Model
David Anderson; David J. Cohen
Abstract: The Digital Emission Spectrum Model report was released in September 1993. A computer program was developed to calculate the power spectral density (PSD) and the fractional power containment bandwidth for various digital modulation techniques. The power containment capability was used to provide guidance for determination of necessary bandwidth in support of Annex J of the NTIA Manual. This report documents the models contained in the computer program and illustrates the models with various sample problems. The report also shows the verification of the computer program implementation.
The digital modulation techniques that are presently included in the computer program are:
Phase shift keying (PSK) with non–return-to-zero modulation
Quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM)
Frequency shift keying (FSK)
Minimum shift keying (MSK)
Bi-phase shift keying with raised cosine modulation
Bi-phase shift keying with Manchester modulation
Keywords: spectrum; emission spectrum; digital modulation; bandwidth; necessary bandwidth; power spectral density; transmitter spectrum
