## What is the difference between QPSK and offset QPSK?

π/4 shifted version of QPSK is referred as pi/4 QPSK. With this modulation compromise between QPSK and OQPSK is done and maximum phase transition of about 135 degree is achieved….pi/4 QPSK.

QPSK | OQPSK | pi/4 QPSK |

Bandwidth containing 90% of power is in 0.8 X Data rate | Same as QPSK | Same as QPSK |

## Why is offset QPSK is preferred than that of QPSK?

From the obtained results it can be concluded that OQPSK performs better than QPSK modulation in terms of BER, which indicates that OQPSK has a better bandwidth efficiency and hence it can be used for systems with less power since it has a better channel frequency error.

**What is QPSK demodulation?**

The QPSK Demodulator uses two product demodulator circuits with local oscillator, two band pass filters, two integrator circuits, and a 2-bit parallel to serial converter. Following is the diagram for the same. The two product detectors at the input of demodulator simultaneously demodulate the two BPSK signals.

### What is the difference between QPSK and 8PSK?

Because 8PSK transmits more bits per cycle when compared to QPSK, it achieves a higher data rate at the same frequency than QPSK. For example, at a carrier-wave frequency of 1,000 symbols per second, QPSK transmits 2,000 bits, while 8PSK transmits 3,000 bits.

### What is the disadvantage of QPSK?

QPSK is not more power efficient modulation technique compare to other modulation types as more power is required to transmit two bits. QPSK is more complex compared to BPSK receiver due to four states needed to recover binary data information.

**What is the bandwidth of QPSK?**

QPSK transmits two bits per symbol, so the bit rate for QPSK is 2T. It follows that QPSK can transmit 2 bits per Hz of bandwidth at baseband, and 1 bit per Hz at passband.

## What are the advantages of QPSK?

It provides good noise immunity. Compared to BPSK, bandwidth used by QPSK is reduced to half. The information transmission rate of Quadrature Phase Shift Keying is higher as it transmits two bits per carrier symbol. Carrier power remains constant as the variation in the QPSK amplitude is small.

## Why BPSK is preferred over QPSK?

QPSK has advantages of having double data rate compare to BPSK. This is due to support of two bits per carrier in QPSK compare to one bit per carrier in the case of BPSK. While QPSK is used for data transmission to provide higher data rate.

**How does QPSK calculate bandwidth?**

So what you might be able to calculate is the total symbol rate, given that each symbol carries 6 bits worth of data. But the channel width is predetermined. In theory, bandwidth is related to data rate by: 1) Nyquist formula: data rate = 2 * bandwidth * log2 (M) ; where M is the modulation level (eg., M=4 for QPSK ).

### What’s the difference between offset and QPSK modulation?

Offset QPSK is essentially same as QPSK, except that the orthogonal carrier signals on the I-channel and the Q-channel are staggered (one of them is delayed in time).

### What’s the difference between BPSK and QPSK phase shift?

Refer BPSK vs QPSK page for power spectrum density of QPSK modulated spectrum. Offset Quadrature Phase Shift Keying is referred as OQPSK . Here maximum phase shift is about +/- 90 degree.

**What’s the difference between QPSK and OQPSK waveforms?**
