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.

This, in turn, shifts the onset of stimulated Brillouin scattering threshold to higher launch powers. US USA en Hence, a factor of two bandwidth reduction is obtained, which is not the case with the standard duobinary scheme.

There are two popular ways to ensure that no more than 15 consecutive zeros are ever sent: The bias voltage V Bias is applied between electrodes 15 and 17 and the duobinary coded driving sequence is applied dulbinary electrode 19 of modulator 9, as shown in Figure 1.

The coded signal generated according to the invention also has a smaller dc component. Thus, the line always returns to the “zero” level to denote optionally a separation of bits or to denote idleness of the line.


The invention also provides an optical modulator comprising: There is also a need for a modulation method which may be used efficiently in high speed operation, is voltage efficient and suitable for use with a duobinary coding technique to obtain a reduced bandwidth of the transmitted signal and prolongs the lifespan of the external modulator.

A bipolar encoding is an often good compromise: Figure 1 illustrates the blocks used to perform the duobinary coding and modulation operations according to the invention.

This encoding is otherwise identical.

Method and system to provide modular parallel precoding in optical duobinary transmission cosing. This is done in such a way that the only allowed transitions at the output are from “1”, to any number of “0”s and to “-1”, or vice versa.

A method as claimed in claim 1 or 2, wherein said step of preparing comprises the sub-steps of: The interference condition is controlled by the difference between distances travelled by these two waves between the point of separation and the point of recombination.

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.

A method for differentially driving an M-Z modulator using a virtual ground level is also provided, ccoding reduces the peak-to-peak drive voltage by a factor of two.

The foregoing codong other objects, features and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the following more particular description of the preferred embodiments, as illustrated in the appended drawings, where: It is also to be noted that the adder illustrated in Figure 3 may replace the driver module 7.


While the invention has been described with reference to particular cuobinary embodiments, further modifications and improvements which will occur to those skilled in the art, may be made within the purview of the appended claims, without departing from the scope of the invention in its broader aspect.

In general, any duobinary encoding scheme is based on introducing inter-symbol interference ISIcontrolled in such xuobinary way that it comes only from the immediately preceding symbol. In the long haul, high bit rate optical fiber telecommunications, appropriate coding and modulation of the signal for transmission are essential.
