—A family of carrier lock detectors for M-PSK receivers operating in additive white Gaussian noise channels is suggested. The statistical properties of the lock detectors are derived theoretically using stochastic analysis, and computer simulations are used to validate the results obtained. The derivations yield discovery of two useful attributes of the(More)
—A new method of estimating the signal-to-noise ratio for M-PSK receivers was presented previously, which derives that estimate from the locked-state value of a new family of carrier lock detectors. In this paper, a quantitative analysis is undertaken in which it is shown that this method requires significantly less hardware and/or software resources than(More)
In most contemporary Phase Lock Loops (PLLs) used in high-datarate wireless receivers, some or all of the PLL's components are implemented digitally, in particular the PLL's loop filter. In this paper we develop the theory behind new efficient structures for the implementation of loop filters within FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) using fixed-point(More)
– We present a novel method for travel-time measurement for geophysical inversion problems. Instead of computing travel-times through measurement of the propagation delay of a " one-shot " disturbance sent between a source-receiver pair (the " conventional " approach), in our system we establish a continuous Spread-Spectrum acoustical communications link(More)
