An analytical evaluation of the performance of amplitude phase shift keying constellations in additive white Gaussian noise is performed and an expression to approximate the error probability is presented. The expression accounts for a number of symbols, equal to the number of concentric rings in the constellation. It is shown to significantly reduce the computational complexity associated with previously known error performance expressions, while closely predicting the error rates in the relevant signal-to-noise ratio range.
