This tutorial work identifies the characteristic properties of chaotic digital modulation schemes and shows how the unique features of chaotic basis functions can be exploited to competitive advantage in selected application domains. Two robust noncoherent chaotic digital modulation schemes (DCSK and FM-DCSK) are described in detail and the performance of FM-DCSK is examined critically for communication channels where systems using conventional coherent and narrow-band modulation schemes fail. Since the FM-DCSK signal is a wide-band signal and its demodulation is performed without synchronization, the FM-DCSK modulation scheme is especially suitable for operation in multipath channel such as Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs).
