Joint selection of the parameters of a minimum-shift frequency-keyed complex signal and a matched surface-acoustic-wave filter

N. I. Smirnov, Yu. A. Karavaev, S. F. Gorgadze


It is ever more frequently the practice to use frequency-keyed complex signals with minimum shift along with phase-keyed signals in order to increase the efficiency with which the frequency band assigned to a system for transmitting information in complex signals (CS) is utilized. For an identical cycling frequency fc of the main lobe of the spectrum of a frequency keyed complex signal with minimum shift (FK-MS) is already 133 times greater than it is for a phase-keyed (PK) complex signal and contains 99.5% of the total energy (against 92% for a PK complex signal), while the level of the first sidelobe is –23 dB relative to the main lobe (compared to –13 dB for a PK complex signal).
