quadrature demodulator

Application of the frequency symbolic method for the analysis of a quadrature demodulator of a telecommunication system

The paper presents the analysis of the operation of a quadrature demodulator of a signals modulated with the use of Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) taking into account the influence of parameters of a low-pass filter. Such quadrature demodulators are used in modern telecommunication systems because of the problem of separating out two Phase Shift Keying (PSK) modulated signals (in-phase and quadrature) from the QPSK-modulated signal arising at the receiving end, which is followed by detecting and determining the binary signal as “one” or “zero”.
