AbstractWe study non-uniform 8-PAM signaling schemes, based on Maxwell-Boltzmann and exponential source distributions, as candidates suitable for data centers' communications. We evaluate mutual information of these schemes against corresponding uniform 8-PAM scheme, for different parameters of source distributions. The properly chosen variable parameters for different SNR-regions allows us to closely approach Shannon limit, and to significantly outperform the corresponding uniform counterpart. We demonstrate that LPDC-coded 8-PAM with exponential distribution outperforms the LDPC-coded 8-PAM with uniform distribution of the same achievable information rate by 1.8 dB, and this improvement is comparable to that obtained from mutual information calculations.
