AbstractThe waveform distortion resulting from adjacent channel crosstalk and from amplitude and phase nonlinearity in channel filters limits the minimum channel spacing, and hence the bandwidth utilization efficiency of a double sideband/suppressed carrier (DSB/SC) telemetry link. The paper presents results of an analysis defining the minimum achievable mean-square error when Butterworth filters are used in the DSB demodulator/demultiplexer. With data inputs consisting of band-limited random signals, solutions are given for various combinations of data order, filter order, channel spacing, and filter cut-off. The trade-off between waveform distortion and channel spacing is illustrated, and optimum locations for the filter cut-off are defined. The irremovable error based on Weiner optimum filter theory is presented as an interesting basis for comparison.
