The concept of Digital Twin has recently emerged, which requires the transmission of a massive amount of sensor data with low latency and high reliability. Analog error correction is an attractive method for low-latency communications; hence, in this paper, we propose the use of complex-valued neural networks and Quaternionic Neural Networks (QNNs) to decode analog codes. Furthermore, we propose mapping our codes to the baseband of the frequency domain to enable easy time and frequency synchronization as well as to mitigate frequency-selective fading using robust estimation theory. This is accomplished by applying inverse Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) modulation, which achieves a significant reduction in hardware complexity, power, and cost as compared to our previously proposed analog coding scheme. Additionally, we introduce a scaled version of our previous analog codes that enables statistical signal processing, something we have not been able to achieve until now. This achieves significant noise immunity with drastic performance improvements at low Signal-to-Noise Ratios (SNR) and a small loss at high SNR.
