Comparative Performance Evaluation of DVB-T using Advance Design System (ADS)

Patience E. Idoga, Mehmet Toycan


Wireless technologies have brought a rapid growth to digital video broadcasting and as such, has played (and still playing) a vital role in communication systems. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) has also become so popular in wireless communication systems reason been that it has high spectral efficiency, high throughput, high data capacity and resilience to multipath fading. In addition to these, it is very robust to channel impairment; a quality which has made it preferable and ideal in wireless communication systems. This paper evaluates DVB and compares its performance across three different channels (AWGN, Rayleigh and Ricean) and three different modulation techniques (QPSK, 16 QAM and 64 QAM) is employed. DTV_DVB in 2K Mode carriers is transmitted across AWGN, Rayleigh and Ricean and a comparison of BER performance of the different modulation schemes was considered. At the end of the simulation results and analysis, it was found that AWGN in 16QAM carrier modulation is considered the best modulation technique for DVB_T.

Keywords: modulation, channel, digital television, digital video broadcasting.
