A 4+12+16 amplitude phase shift keying (APSK) modulation outperforms other 32-APSK modulations such as rectangular or cross 32-quadrature amplitude modulations (QAMs) which have a high peak to average power ratio that causes non-negligible AM/AM and AM/PM distortions when the signal is amplified by a high-power amplifier (HPA). This modulation scheme has therefore been recommended as a standard in the digital video broadcasting-satellite2 (DVB-S2) system. In this letter, we present a new bits-to-symbol mapping with a better bit error rate (BER) for a 4+12+16 APSK signal in a nonlinear satellite channel.
