Astrapi: The spiral modulation value proposition

May 03, 2016 // By Jerrold Prothero

Spiral signal modulation opens an unexplored area for innovation at the core of telecommunications. Based on a generalization of Euler’s formula, the foundational mathematics for telecommunications, Astrapi provides novel ways to design the symbol waveforms used to encode digital transmissions. Specific potential applications include improved performance in the presence of phase impairments, for instance due to multipath interference; greater resistance to interference from competing signals; and the ability to work well with power-efficient and cost-effective nonlinear power amplifiers.
