Timing Recovery with Linear Modulations
In this chapter we address timing recovery with modulated PAM signals. For reasons that will soon be explained, the discussion is divided into several parts, depending on the specific modulation format and the operating conditions. For example, a distinction between non-offset and offset modulations is useful as different signal representations call for separate analyses and lead to different solutions. In the sequel we first discuss non-offset modulations and then consider offset QPSK modulation (OQPSK).
