Thanks to the keen observation by Mr. Phan Minh Hoang, I was notified that the Matlab/Octave scripts provided along with the topic raised cosine filtering was not behaving properly.

**Reason: **I was not taking care of the division by zero when creating the raised cosine filter taps. 🙁

The equation for **raised cosine filter** is

where

is the ** excess bandwidth parameter** and takes values from 0 to 1.

I was not taking care of the division by zero in the above equation. I updated the code to explictly handle the **division by zero** case where:

(a) for and

(b) for

(Thanks to the article in RFDesign.com, The care and feeding of digital, pulse-shaping filter, Ken Gentile)

**The updated posts are:**

1. Raised cosine filter for transmit pulse shaping

2. Eye diagram with raised cosine filtering

Thanks again Mr. Phan Minh Hoang. 🙂

All, In case you find errors and inconsistencies in the article and/or simulation models, kindly let me know. Regards,Krishna

hi, i need matlab code for ofdm transmission using pulse shaping filter like raised cosine filter

thanks

@ABHIJEET: I do not have that code, but you can refer to posts related to OFDM under

https://dsplog.com/category/ofdm/

But, why do wish to do raised cosine filtering with ofdm?

in matlab using the inbuilt functions i generated random signal and modulated using QPSK and then transmitted adding awgn. After receiving and demodulating i m geeting zero bit error rate. Is it because of i have to use some other equations for QPSK and how can we change the frequency values and BW for the modulation. Please help me!!

@rasi: Try increasing the noise power and see whether you are getting non-zero BER. If not there might be some typos in the code. You may also refer to the post

@dima: Can you please translate to english your query

can you guide me to a site or some sources from where i can get help for the code written in c++ for digital communication?

@Jhony:

Ofcourse, we can do the simulations in C++ (or any most other programming languages). The advantage with Matlab is that it is easier to code and debug compared to C.

In Matlab, Y = A*B where A and B are matrices is a one-liner.

Imagine how many lines of code we need to write for the same operation in C?

hi

i hope u r doing fine… why dont we do the simulations in c++??? i mean is it possible to simulate QPSK in c++?
