An approximate analytical expression for the bit error rate of a QPSK homodyne receiver employing digital signal processing for carrier recovery is derived. BER estimated using the analytical expression is in excellent agreement with Monte-Carlo simulations. The analytical approximation leads to an intuitive understanding of the trade off in such systems and allows optimization of system parameters without resorting to Monte-Carlo simulations.
