Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A reliable and economical new transmission code is presented with the following properties: Zero dc content, baseband bandwidth conservation, self-clocking capability, and data-rate-transparent decoding and synchronization. Simple encoder/decoder and clock extractor circuits are given. The code is demonstrated in a wavelength-multiplexed fiber-optic communication system.
