Low bitrate system design in the presence of phase noiseThere are a number of interesting mobile satellite applications that require the transmission of short packets of data. In the design of such systems one of the challenges is often to minimize the transmitted power to reduce cost, which implies using power efficient low bit-rate modulation and coding methods. PSK systems can be very power efficient, but at low bit-rates the carrier recovery circuits can be sensitive to oscillator phase noise. In this paper we address the problem of determining the lowest bit-rate that can be supported using PSK for a given level of system phase noise. The classical formulas are reviewed, and a method is derived to calculate the minimum C/N(sub 0) required to recover the carrier for CW, BPSK and QPSK signals for a given phase noise level.
