BPSK vs BOC | Sine BOC modulation | Cosine BOC modulation
This page compares BPSK vs BOC(Binary Offset Carrier) modulation types and describes Sine BOC modulation and Cosine BOC(Binary Offset Carrier) modulation.
GNSS uses channel modulations such as BPSK, BOC (sine and cosine variants), MBOC (Multiplexed BOC) and AltBOC (Alternate BOC).
The equation below denotes BPSK modulated PRN sequence. Here p(t) denotes basic pulse used as binary data stream.
No pulse shaping is used in GNSS. Here p(t) = pTc(t) = rectangular pulse
Here modulated signal is expressed as convolution between code navigation data and modulation pulse. BPSK is the short form of Binary Phase Shift Keying modulation. Refer BPSK modulation➤ which mentions conversion of binary data consisting of 1s and 0s into binary symbols.
Sine BOC Modulation
Fig.1 Sine BOC modulation Waveforms
BOC modulation is the short form of Binary Offset Carrier modulation. It is called as square subcarrier modulation. Here PRN code which has chip rate of fc is multiplied by rectangular subcarrier having frequency of fsc. This splits the spectrum of the signal.
The Sine BOC time waveform is expressed as above.
Cosine BOC Modulation
Fig.2 Cosine BOC modulation Waveforms
Cosine BOC can be modelled as double Sine BOC modulation in which first stage has modulation of order NB and second stage has modulation order of 2.
The Cosine BOC time waveform is expressed as above.
