Wireless engineering communication QAM

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    On a HSDPA multicode peak rate of wireless communication
    Channel Coding rate: 3/4.

    How was the value
    7.2 Mbps found using 10 codes of a 16 QAM modulation using signal processing path.

    2. Relevant equations
    Not sure

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I feel bad in saying this, but I have no idea where to start. I was wondering if someone could give me some hints, or rewording the question in a way that might make it easier for me to understand.
    Thanks :)


    I think I figured out how to do it :D!! I think, hopefully that doesn't change soon but since I wrote down the question here slightly different to the question asked, and then reread my question it made sooo much more sense for some random reason hahaha.

    Haha thanks, I got to admit, it was definitely a nice way into the forum.

    I was just wondering does anyone know what particular "signal processing path" means, I guess I'm just unsure if I'm actually using the whole signal processing path or not.

    Well.....I dont know anything about signal processing.:smile:
    I saw you are new and just came to welcome you:tongue2:
