Abstract: This paper presents microcontroller based schematic circuit design of a complete duobinary encoder (duobinary code from binary bit) and duobinary. Duobinary coding is a partial response signal: certain amount of ISI is not suppressed by the equalizer but rather left for a simple detector to. In telecommunication, bipolar encoding is a type of return-to-zero (RZ) line code, where two nonzero values are used, so that the three values are +, −, and zero. Such a signal is called a duobinary signal.

The collector of transistor 35 is connected to a load resistor Rreferred to with numeral 41and the emitter is connected to V DD through a current source A method as claimed in claim 1, 2 or 3, wherein said step of combining comprises adding the level corresponding to a bit a k of said first binary sequence a 0,1 with the level codding to a bit b k of cocing second binary sequence b 0,1.

One of these limitations is the chromatic dispersion, which can be relaxed if modulation bandwidth of the optical signal is reduced. As well, the E-field has no component at the carrier frequency.

Stremler, Addison-Wesley Publishing Company, 2nd edition, Modulator 9 illustrated in the embodiment of Figure 1 is a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. Weakened signals corrupted by noise could cause errors, a mark interpreted as zero, or zero as positive or negative mark.

Example 2 of coding of a binary sequence x k into a duobinary sequence y k. On the decoder side, this extra ‘1’ added by the coder is removed, recreating the correct data. If the characteristics of the input data do not follow the pattern that every eighth bit is ‘1’, the coder using alternate mark inversion adds a ‘1’ after seven consecutive zeros to maintain synchronisation.

The transmitter includes an encoder comprising an XOR gate with a delayed feedback path for determining each symbol of the duobinary sequence from the current and the previous djobinary.


These are also called travelling wave electrodes. Conversely, a modulating voltage supplied to one or both arms results in a differential phase change, giving rise to an intensity minimum or “off” condition.

Bipolar encoding – Wikipedia

Method and system to provide modular parallel precoding in optical duobinary transmission systems. Bipolar encoding is preferable to non-return-to-zero whenever signal transitions are required to maintain synchronization between the transmitter and receiver. A bias voltage V Bias is applied between travelling wave electrodes 15 and This is shown in row 4 of Tables 2 and 3 below. When the input binary “1”s are separated by an even number of “0”s, the “1”s are encoded as pulses of the same polarity in the duobinary sequence.

At least with some data transmission systems, duobinary can perform lossless data reduction though this has seldom been utilized in practice. A method for differentially driving an M-Z modulator using a virtual ground level is also provided, which reduces the peak-to-peak drive voltage by a factor of two.

The duobinary encoding according to the present codin affects only non-zero input bits.

The name arose because, in the context of a T-carriera binary ‘1’ is referred to as a “mark”, while a binary ‘0’ is called a “space”.

The effect of using duobinxry drive implementation is to reduce the drive amplitude required of individual drive circuits to approximately half that required for the push-pull drive configuration described earlier. In binary transmission systems, only two symbols “d” and “n” are used, and more particularly, the bits of information take on two values, logic “1” and logic “0”.

In general, any duobinary encoding scheme is based on introducing inter-symbol interference ISIcontrolled in such a way that it comes only from the immediately preceding symbol. The recombined light exits the output port of the wave-guide combiner and is then optically coupled to an optical fiber for transmission. Disadvantageously, the available drive voltage according to this method of modulation effects a phase shift in only the arm associated with the first electrode, thereby limiting the achievable modulation depth for a given voltage in comparison with other methods described herein.


Thus, the duobinary signal has one half the transmission bandwidth of the binary signal for encoding the same information. The binary stream x 0,1 is applied to the clock input of the flip-flop Where frequent transitions are a requirement, a self-clocking encoding such as return-to-zero or some other more complicated line code may be more appropriate, though they introduce significant overhead.

Method and apparatus for bias and alignment control in an optical signal transmitter.

A third electrode is generally disposed between the arms. As these references disclose standard duobinary coding techniques which involve pre-coding of the signal and push-pull or single arm modulation methods, they all suffer from the drawbacks described above.

Ref legal event code: Data channels are required to use some other form of pulse-stuffing, [2] such as always setting bit 8 to ‘1’, in order to maintain a sufficient density of ones. In this way, the number of “1”s in the driving signal is substantially equal to the number of “-1″s. Unipolar encoding Bipolar encoding On-off keying.

Bipolar encoding

The input bits “1” are replaced by output bits “1”s or “-1″s. These distances are controlled by varying the optical indices of the two wave-guides which define the optical paths between separation and recombination. However, long sequences of zeroes remain an issue.
