A new multiplexing technique based on duty cycle division is proposed, thus the name Duty Cycle Division Multiplexing (DCDM). DCDM can be applied in both electrical and optical domains, for wired and wireless systems. The new technique allows for more efficient use of time slots as well as the spectrum, taking advantage of both the conventional TDM and FDM. In this paper, three channels operating at the same speed of 10 Gbps per channel are multiplexed in the electrical domain. The performance comparison is made against 3x10 Gbps TDM, and the experimental simulation results show that the DCDM system can support higher bit rate than TDM and also, it is less sensitive to the chromatic dispersion effect.

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository

Universiti Putra Malaysia Institutional Repository is an on-line digital archive that serves as a central collection and storage of scientific information and research at the Universiti Putra Malaysia.

Currently, the collections deposited in the IR consists of Master and PhD theses, Master and PhD Project Report, Journal Articles, Journal Bulletins, Conference Papers, UPM News, Newspaper Cuttings, Patents and Inaugural Lectures.

As the policy of the university does not permit users to view thesis in full text, access is only given to the first 24 pages only.
