Calculating Symbol rate of baseband signal with AWG7102

Post by thanhptit1 » June 25th, 2014, 12:39 am

Hi all.

I am a newbie with AWG7102, so I have a quite simple question.

I create a 16QAM baseband signal with intended symbol rate 100MSps. So how to choose the sample rate of AWG7102 to create this baseband signal? So far, please send me some documents about AWG7102 for deeply understanding.

Thanks all.

selecting a sampling rate is a personal choice. without shaping your baseband you can sample at the symbol rate. shaping requires oversampling. 6x oversampling could be too much or too little. Adjust it as you see fit.
