correlation receiver

correlation receiver

A radio-astronomy receiver in which either the noise power from a single antenna is split and multiplied with itself or the noise power from the two arms of an interferometer (see radio telescope) are multiplied together. Signals that are uncorrelated (completely unrelated) give an output whose average value is zero when multiplied together. Correlated signals, however, produce components near zero frequency that give a steady deflection in the output of the multiplier. In addition to their use in radio interferometry, correlation receivers are also used to reduce the effect of interference and of changes in the gain and other parameters of the system. See also phase-switching interferometer.

Then the received signal is demodulated using coherent BPSK receiver (i.e., correlation receiver) and matched filtering is followed by despreading the demodulated signal at the receiver side.
It is well known that the BER of a correlation receiver is [P.sub.e] = Q([square root of ([E.sub.b](1 - [rho])/[N.sub.0])]), where [E.sub.b] = 1/[E.sub.b] [[integral].sup.T.sub.0] [s.sup.2.sub.0](t)dt and [rho] = 1/[E.sub.b] [s.sub.0](t)[s.sub.1](t)dt [15].
Hence CDMA receiver may combine the time-shifted versions of the original signal by providing a separate correlation receiver for each of the multipath signals.
Correlation receiver is a widely used method of detecting objects in free space.
However, the correlation receiver does not operate well for a GPR because the waveform of the received GPR signal is distorted by the dispersive media underground, and the received signal model described by (2) is not valid.
Consider using a correlation receiver to coherently demodulate the desired user's signal.
Basically, this is a coherent radar transmitting preregistered pseudorandom signals and using a correlation receiver (or a mismatched, range-side lobe suppression receiver).
Assuming a correlation receiver, the optimal template v(f) should be matched to the received pulse.
In the case of the correlation receiver detector, UWB and gate pulses are multiplied to produce a short output unamplified pulse whenever there is a coincidence.

The proposed methods include arrays of emitters and trains of pulses in conjunction with correlation receivers.
