Intersymbol Interference


1) In a digital transmission system, distortion of the received signal, manifested in the temporal spreading and consequent overlap of individual pulses to the degree that the receiver cannot reliably distinguish between changes of state, i.e., between individual signal elements. At a certain threshold, intersymbol interference will compromise the integrity of the received data. Intersymbol interference may be measured by eye patterns.
