Joint Timing Recovery, ISI Equalization and Decoding Using Per-survivor BCJR-DFE Conference Paper uri icon


  • Along with inter-symbol interference (ISI), many communication channels also suffer from timing errors. Traditionally, timing errors are meditated through dedicated timing recovery circuitry. In this paper, we extend a recently introduced BCJR-DFE receiver to accomplish timing recovery, ISI equalization and decoding concurrently using per-survivor processing technique. We show that the proposed BCJR-DFE receiver offers many advantages over other receiver structures, such as iterative timing recovery and detection. © 2005 IEEE.
