Thanks Frank, you just did the kids homeWork. These young-guns need to stay w/the discretes, fully understood. What isn't in an IC package at this date in one form/purpose/function or another.

I'm only doing a project with them. I thought it may be useful.

Nice to see there IS somebody making modulator & demodulator building block ICs. Thanks for posting the link to your company's website.

Bao, the functions you mentioned -- symbol mapper, etc. -- are usually integrated in a single IC, not sold as separate components. Most of the modem functions can be implemented digitally on an FPGA, or better yet, one FPGA for the transmitter and another one for the receiver. If you focus on the system design & digital implementation, you should discover that the only other components you need besides the FPGAs are A/D and D/A converters and amplifers.

I think maybe start with overall diagram concept then break down into components.

16QAM/QPSK Communication Systems Design

I am Bao, a student at California State University, Long Beach. This is my project requirements: Design a digital communication system capable to transmit digital signal using both QPSK and 16QAM signaling schemes. Data rate about 100 kbps. Input signal to transmitter is human voice, and output signal will be stored in the receiver and then played out from a speaker. Channels will be both wire and wireless. I need help in finding ICs for my project (symbol mapper, quadrature modulators, quadrature oscillators, …)
