MSK synchronization parameters
Synchronization parameters to pass to the demodulation node.
If the synchronization parameter passed to the demodulation node is left empty, the constellation of the demodulated waveform has a 90° carrier phase ambiguity for two-dimensional modulation schemes (QAM, QPSK, and higher order PSK) and a 180° carrier phase ambiguity for one-dimensional modulation schemes (PAM/ASK/BPSK).
expected sync location
The expected location of the first symbol of the sync sequence.
This value is an index to the input complex waveform. A value of -1 searches the entire input complex waveform and ignores the sync location uncertainty parameter.
The mapped symbol pattern used to synchronize the bit stream. To prevent false synchronization, select this pattern such that there is a low probability of accidental correlation to nonsynchronized parts of the data stream. For MSK, the real portion of the mapped symbols is the frequency deviation of the symbol value, and the imaginary portion is 0. If this parameter is left empty, the signal is still demodulated.
sync location uncertainty
Number of symbols before or after the expected sync location where the first symbol of the sync sequence may be located. The node ignores this parameter if the expected sync location parameter is set to -1.
Distance that the sync sequence is indented into the information block.
The distance is the number of demodulated symbols preceding the sync sequence. For example, a value of 10 indicates that the output bit stream consists of 10 data symbols, followed by the sync sequence, followed by the remaining data symbols.
