In this paper we derive the performance bound on multiple-pulse position modulation (MPPM). We compare this bound with power and bandwidth efficiency of MPPM derived from the error probability, cutoff rate, and inverse pulse width approximation expressions.

Key words: multiple-pulse position modulation (MPPM), performance bound, power efficiency, bandwidth efficiency, cutoff rate
