I just review this mail and want to ask when we try to send the burst data, can we force the carrier phase to be a specified value at every beginning of burst? If it can, does this procedure cost time or just take effect within the sample time?

I think this change is caused by the fact that the ADC clock phases are different for the starts of every signal burst. But I don't know more details on this mechanism.


Indeed, the carrier phase for discontinous transmission will be at some random spot every time you start a burst.  The hardware doesn't have any
  notion of "start the burst only when the clock phase is the same as it was last-time I sent a burst".  Unless you have utter blind luck, your burst timing
  isn't ever going to be an exact multiple of the clock frequency, so there's no way the carrier phase will be in exactly the same place at the start of
  every burst.
