Symbol Synchronization Using Signal Samples and Interpolation

Abstract

A new method for symbol synchronization using two unsynchronized signal samples per symbol is presented. Signal values between the sample points are calculated by interpolation, and then processed digitally to find a suitable strobe point. The interpolated value at the strobe point is then used for data detection or input to an equalizer. Simulations show that low variance timing estimates can be made for pulses with raised-cosine spectra degraded by quadratic delay distortion.
