samples per symbol
Number of samples per symbol in the modulated output complex waveform.
For error-free operation, the samples per symbol must be an even number. Applying Carson's rule for MSK modulation [peak frequency deviation = 0.25 × symbol rate (Hz)], the 98% MSK bandwidth is given by 0.5 × (1 + r) × symbol rate + peak frequency deviation, where 0 < r ≤ 1 is the filter parameter. To satisfy Nyquist criterion, a good guideline is given by samples per symbol = 2 × ceil(1.5 × bandwidth/symbol rate) to obtain 3× oversampling.
