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.

Optical transmission system employing auto-synchronized chirped return-to-zero transmitter. This is often done using a bias tee. Another benefit of bipolar encoding compared to unipolar is error detection.

A first matching impedance Z 1 connects the second end of electrode 15, dose to the output port 10 of the modulator to ground, while a second matching impedance Z 2 connects the second end of electrode 17 to ground.

A method as claimed in claim 1, wherein the duobinary output sequence has a value 0 when the first and second binary sequences each have value 0, the duobinary output sequence has value 1 when one of the the first and second binary sequences has value 0 and the other has value 1, and the duobinary output sequence has value -1 when the one of the first and second binary sequences has value 1 and the other has value 0.

Bipolar encoding

Duobiary summation circuit 27 effects an algebraic summation of the signals, rather than the logic “AND” effected by gates 23 and A pseudo-random bit sequence PRBS was used for this comparison. If the summation circuit b is ac coupled, the three levels become: The tests concluded that the dispersion has less effect on the duobinary receiver than on the binary receiver over the distance range tested.

It is an object of this invention to provide a duobinary coding and modulation technique for optical communication systems which reduces the drawbacks inherent with the prior art techniques.


The light source is optically coupled to the wave-guide splitter, which serves as a Y-branch splitter or directional coupler. Stremler, Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, 2nd edition, GB Free format text: Method and apparatus for generating optical duo codingg signals with frequency chirp.

Method and apparatus for bias and alignment control in an optical signal transmitter. R Ref document number: Modulator 9 illustrated in the embodiment of Figure 1 is a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Both current sources 37 and 39 provide a current “i” through resistor R when the respective transistor conducts.

In the above examples, the bandwidth of the driving signal is identical to the bandwidth of the binary input signal, and the dc component is the same as that of the binary input signal. The recombined light exits the output port of the wave-guide combiner and is then optically coupled to an optical fiber for transmission.

A modulator as claimed in claim 6 or 7, wherein said summer comprises: Transmitter and method using half rate data streams for generating full rate modulation on an optical signal. It is another object of the invention to provide a duobinary coding circuit that is used to drive an external modulator, no pre-coding circuit being necessary at the transmitter site, and no additional decoding circuitry being necessary at clding receiver site.

For the case shown in Figure 1A, V Bias is the virtual ground voltage obtained as discussed above. A1 Designated state s: Disadvantageously, the available drive voltage according to this method of modulation effects a phase shift in only the arm associated with the first electrode, thereby limiting the achievable modulation depth for a given voltage in comparison with other methods described herein.

The optical signal has a central level resulting in maximum extinction, the “0” optical level, and two outer levels resulting in equal intensities, the “1” optical level.


Figure 1 illustrates the blocks used to perform the fuobinary coding and modulation operations according to the invention. The input bits “1” are replaced by output codng “1”s or “-1″s. This phase shifting modulation method is known as push-pull. DE Ref legal event code: These duobiary also called doubinary wave electrodes. The coding was used extensively in first-generation PCM networks, and is still commonly seen on older multiplexing equipment today, but successful transmission relies on no long runs of zeroes being present.

The reported literature on experiments using the above-identified duobinary pre-coding and modulation techniques can be classified according to the choice of the bias voltage to the external modulator and the intensity levels in the drive signal.

When the input binary “1”s are separated by an even number of “0”s, the “1”s are encoded as pulses of the same polarity in the duobinary sequence. In the following is assumed that the modulator has been adequately biased.

Method and system to provide modular parallel precoding in optical duobinary transmission systems. A bias voltage V Bias is applied between travelling wave electrodes 15 and When the input binary “1”s are separated by an odd number of “0”s, the “1”s are fuobinary as pulses of opposite polarity in the duobinary sequence.

Example 2 of coding of a binary sequence x k into a duobinary sequence y k. Unipolar encoding Bipolar encoding On-off keying. The smaller dc component results in better suppression of the carrier frequency. These alternative approaches require either an additional transmission medium for the clock signal or a loss of performance due to overhead, respectively.
