      MAJOR PROJECT-FPGA implementation of BPSK and comparison with 8 PSK
      Project done to do a performance study of BPSK and 8 PSK with respect to BER and Energy per bit.
      BPSK was implemented in FPGA and then corresponding noise interference patterns for different channels were noted.
      The same is implemented in MATLAB Simulink for 8 PSK.
      Performance of both techniques are compared and studied

      anyone please suggest me some universities for my profile thanks in advance.

      Hi sir,
      I have finished my BE (ECE) with 7.8 cgpa,2013 passout
      GRE - 287 (verbal - 140, quans - 147)
      10th - 86%
      12th - 83%
      yet to receive my TOEFL score. I did a paper presentation in national level conference.
      I am interested to do ms in embedded systems...whether i will be eligible to get universities ? is the embedded system subject too hard ? i am an average student of scoring 78% in India,but in USA all are telling 3.9/4 is the grade we have to score to get jobs, is that true ? But i will put in all my efforts to get good score if I am not able to score. if the grade is below that will there be job opportunity and value for the degree. I am scared about it.
      pls give me ur suggestions.

      Thanks in advance.
