Abstract

The abundance in bandwidth available in the best monomode fibres may be exchanged for improved receiver sensitivity by employing digital PPM. This paper presents a performance and optimisation analysis for a digital PPM coding scheme operating over a fibre channel employing a PIN-BJT receiver and assuming a Gaussian received pulse shape. We present original results for a 50 Mbit/s, 1.3 μm wavelength digital PPM system and conclude that, provided the fibre bandwidth is several times that of the data rate, digital PPM can outperform commercially available PIN-BJT binary PCM systems.
