This paper presents the design and simulation of an Auto-Gating technique for impulsive noise reduction in communication systems. The Auto-Gating process applies an adaptive approach in order to reduce the impact of impulsive noise. An AWGN system model that uses both 16-QAM and QPSK were implemented. The BER performance for the proposed technique under AWGN and impulsive noise was compared with different impulsive noise reduction techniques such as Fixed-Gating. The results showed that the proposed technique offered clear improvement over conventional techniques.
