  • Publication number: 20230362035
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a frequency deviation estimation device for estimating a frequency deviation upon receiving a digitally modulated non-repetitive signal. The frequency deviation estimation device is equipped with an instantaneous frequency measurement module, a minimum frequency detection module, and a frequency deviation calculation module. The instantaneous frequency measurement module measures the instantaneous frequency of the received communication signal. The minimum frequency detection module detects the minimum frequency of the instantaneous frequency. The frequency deviation calculation module calculates the frequency deviation between the received communication signal and the reference signal for coarse adjustment using the reference minimum frequency and the minimum frequency when the frequency deviation is zero Hertz.

  • Publication number: 20230344464
    Abstract: A timing detection device includes a main reference code generation module, an auxiliary reference code generation module, a first correlation processing module, a second correlation processing module, and a subtraction module. The main reference code generation module generates a main reference code consisting of the same code for synchronization included in a received signal. Using a portion of the same code as the code for synchronization, the auxiliary reference code generation module generates an auxiliary reference code consisting of a code configuration different from the main reference code and without generating a main lobe during correlation processing. The first correlation processing module correlates the received signal with the main reference code and outputs a first correlation result. The second correlation processing module correlates the received signal with the auxiliary reference code and outputs a second correlation result.

  • Publication number: 20230336124
    Abstract: A demodulation device includes a phase rotation module, a phase adjustment module, a phase comparison module, and a reference signal generation module. The phase rotation module rotates phases of an I-Phase signal and a Q-Phase signal in a received signal of a multilevel PSK signal using a reference signal. The phase adjustment module adjusts the phases of the phase rotated I-Phase signal and the phase rotated Q-Phase signal output from the phase rotation module by multiplying the phases of the I-Phase signal and the Q-Phase signal with an integer value to generate a phase adjusted I-Phase signal and a phase adjusted Q-Phase signal. The phase comparison module compares the phase of the phase adjusted I-Phase signal with the phase of the phase adjusted Q-Phase signal to generate a phase comparison result. Also, the reference signal generation module generates a reference signal using the phase comparison result.
