Abstract : The effects of bit synchronization error on the performance of receivers used to demodulate differential phase shift keyed (DPSK) signals are analyzed. In the two cases of interest considered, the carrier signal is bi-phase modulated with either the differentially encoded (binary) data stream or the modulo two sum of the encoded data stream and a binary pseudo-noise (PN) signal. The bit timing error is assumed to be Gaussian distributed. Since the effects of both non-zero timing offset and random jitter are investigated, the results provide an adequate basis for the design of synchronizers as employed, for example, in time division multiple access systems.
