Abstract: In order to satisfy the higher and higher demand for communication systems, an Extended Binary Phase Shift Keying (EBPSK) system with very high spectra efficiency has been proposed. During the research, a special kind of filters was found, which can amplify the signal characteristics and remove utmost noise, i.e., at the point of the phase jumping corresponding to code “1”, produce the amplitude impulse much higher than code “0”, therefore, the aim of our study was to analyze the BER performance of the impacting filter assisted EBPSK-MODEM. Considering the receiver filtered “0” and “1”signal with Rice amplitude distribution, just having different mean values, so the BER performance of EBPSK is deduced based on the classic detection theory, and compared with the traditional BPSK modulation both in spectra efficiency and in BER performance, which lays the theoretical foundation for the feasibility of Ultra Narrow Band communications based on EBPSK modulation.
