This paper introduces the research and development of digital modulation/demodulation techniques for mobile radio communications carried out so far in Japan. Constant envelope modulations such as GMSK, Nyquist filtered multilevel FM, PLL-QPSK and CCPSK are described. Linear modulations including π/4 shift QPSK, 16 QAM, anti-multipath modulations and nonlinearity compensated transmitter power amplifier are presented. The paper shows that Japan has made a significant contribution to the evolution of new technologies in this field.
