Analysis of a binary sequential communication system with truncated decision test
Abstract
A sequential communication system, using postdecision feedback, is described and analyzed. The system considered is a binary one and it is supposed that the receiver performs a coherent demodulation. In such a system the receiver carries out a discrete sequential test, in which the decisions are taken at time intervals, which are multiples of the single bit duration; an upper bound to the number of allowable repetitions of the same bit is also fixed. These assumptions seem to be realistic in practical working situation. An exact analysis of the attainable performance is made, and the results have been compared with those of an analogous system without truncation of the test, previously analyzed.
