Abstract:

The report presents the results obtained during the study on mathematical modeling of PCM bit synchronizers also known as PCM signal conditioners. It is written in two parts. The first part presents results obtained on the study of the effects which bit synchronization has on the bit error rate BER. The second part of the report is devoted to the study of bit synchronization performance characterization. A general discussion is given which highlights the many performance measures which serve to characterize the performance of BSS. Some general mathematical relations are given for evaluation of the acquisition time, acquisition range, and bit slippage rate for PCM bit synchronizers which are mechanized such that the phase detector characteristic is periodic.
