A blind joint estimator for multipath diversity and PN code timing error is proposed in this paper for direct-sequence spread-spectrum signaling on a frequency-selective fading channel. In the multipath diversity combiner, a modi ed known modulus adaptive (KMA) algorithm is used to cope with time-varyingmultipath e ects and to perform multipath diversity combining in the blind mode. In the code timing recovery, the timing error signal is extracted from each propagation path independently and… CONTINUE READING
