Synchronization of BPSK with variable-length symbols (ISO 14443)

Does anyone have an idea how one would perform BPSK symbol synchronization if symbol length is allowed to vary? As dumb as that sounds, this is not a theretical question.The "Proximity" Type B NFC ...

Synchronizing signals with different sample rates

I am relatively new to signal processing, so I am still missing some basic knowledge, but I am trying to improve as much as I can. I am trying to synchronize two signals with matlab using cross-...

Why does signaling overhead for time synchronization scale up with the number of transmitter nodes in a multiple access system?

I was recently reading about random multiple access methods without time synchronisation (of the pure Aloha type). In this paper it is stated that, The need for transmitter synchronization is a ...

In OFDM, does the parameter time offset is important if there is only one mobile in the cell?

I am learning about OFDM, and in my reading, I have noticed that (mentioned everywhere) synchronization is a very critical aspect of OFDM. Here, I am writing in the context of time synchronization (...

Frequency Domain Variant of Pearson's Sample Correlation Coefficient?

Suppose that you need to find (i.e. acquire) $x_1$, a short data packet with a known bit sequence preamble (i.e. a PRBS BPSK), in $x_2$, quantized samples recorded from the output of an ADC. You don'...
