—Interpolated second-order polynomials (ISOP's) are proposed to design efficient cascaded integrator-comb (CIC)-based decimation filters for a programmable downconverter. It is shown that some simple ISOP's can effectively reduce the passband droop caused by CIC filtering with little degradation in aliasing attenuation. In addition, ISOP's are shown to be(More)
—A new data-aided frequency estimator is introduced for phase-shift keying signals transmitted over frequency-selective fading channels. This estimator is developed based on a maximum likelihood criterion. It assumes the use of a special class of pilots, called near-i.i.d. (independent identically distributed) sequences, with impulsive fourth-order moments.(More)
