Metadata

Name: Intersymbol Interference (ISI) and the Eye Diagram
ID: m18662
Language: English (en)
Summary: This project studies intersymbol interference (ISI) in an intuitive way by using a LabVIEW VI to simulate a pulse transmitter, finite bandwidth channel, and received signaling waveform. Rectangular pulses are considered first to demonstrate the ISI problem, and then two alternative pulse shapes are explored as a way to minimize ISI. The eye diagram is also introduced in this project as a visual aid to present the time-domain signaling waveform to promote understanding of the ISI phenomenon.
