This does not seem right to me: The instantaneous frequency of GMSK signal is supposed to be: fi(t)=h sum_k a_k g(tkT) where a_k is the symbol (say +1), g(t) is the Gaussian pulse T is the symbol interval and h is the modulation index. In a discertized model with oversampling factor of Q (ie, Ts=T/Q) this equation becomes: fi(n Ts)=h sum_k a_k g((nkQ)Ts) or in discrete time notationfi(n)=h sum_k a_k g(nkQ) = h x(n) conv g(n) where
x(n) = [a0 0 0 0 a1 0 0 0 a2 0 0 0...] I don't see where the need for the rectangular window is. What am I missing? Achilleas On Wed, 9 May 2007, Matt Ettus wrote:

Why is that so?The pulse is convolved with a rectangular window because the incoming data is not. For example, if you wanted to send 1011 and had 4X interpolated data, the data stream into the gaussian filter would look like:1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1 however, the input to the block in question is: 1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,1,0,0,0It was easier to precombine the zeroorder hold with the gaussian filter by convolving it rather than having 2 separate filters in the realtime portion of the code.Matt
