In up-to-date receiver architectures the gain and phase mismatch between the I and Q signal paths may degrade significantly the overall link performance. An alternative cost effective solution to expensive analog components with small tolerances, which make the I/Q mismatch effect negligible , consists in estimating and compensating it through appropriate(More)
We introduce in this paper a low-complexity joint carrier frequency and phase recovery algorithm for coherent detec-tion/decoding of a turbo-coded 16-QAM signal. The esti-mator (which can be actually applied to any linear modulation scheme) is based on a pseudo-Maximum Likelihood (ML) approach, and unlike previously published works, makes iterative use of(More)
Recommended by Anton Donner This paper considers the problem of optimizing the burst format of packet transmission to perform enhanced-accuracy estimation of Doppler-shift and Doppler-rate of the carrier of the received signal, due to relative motion between the transmitter and the receiver. Two novel burst formats that minimize the Doppler-shift and the(More)
1 As is known, satellite positioning is based on the accurate measurement of the delay experienced by a spread-spectrum signal in the propagation from the satellite to the user receiver. The more accurate is such delay estimation, the more precise will be the determination of the user position. In this paper we derive criteria to optimize the format of the(More)
