© 2004-2012 IEEE. An M-ary Differential Chaos Shift Keying modulation using Chaotic Shape-forming Filter (CSF-M-DCSK) is proposed here to transmit two sub-streams with different system performances. The chaotic shape-forming filter is used to generate the chaotic carrier which is modulated according to the DCSK concept. The modulated chaotic signal is demodulated by a coherent matched filter receiver and the maximum likelihood decision rule is used to get the best noise performance. Compared to DCSK and its enhanced versions, the new modulation scheme offers not only better noise and multipath performances but also a higher data rate. The hardware implementation of the proposed method is as simple as that of a conventional communication system. Analytical expressions have been derived for the CSF-M-DCSK Bit Error Rate (BER) and its performance has been evaluated in AWGN and multipath channels by simulations. The new CSF-M-DCSK system has been implemented and successfully tested on a Wireless open-Access Research Platform (WARP). Results of simulations and measurements performed in real application scenarios have proven the feasibility and superiority of CSF-M-DCSK over its competitors.
