In this chapter a postdetection integrator is considered that provides slightly poorer performance than the ideal integrator discussed in Chapters 10 and 11. In this integrator the received signal is quantized so that it can be processed by simple digital circuits. The integration technique is called binary integration, or double-threshold detection; both titles are descriptive of its operation.
