Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

Abstract

Research has shown that significant degradation in performance can occur even when operating within the limits for carrier frequency and modulation index offsets permitted by the Bluetooth standard. This is even more severe for multi-bit detectors like the matched filter bank receiver, because such errors accumulate across a longer observation interval. This paper details the derivation of a stochastic gradient carrier frequency offset correction algorithm suitable for Bluetooth signals, as well as a separate algorithm applicable to the efficient realisation of the matched filter bank (MFB) receiver for Bluetooth signals. The reduced complexity MFB receiver for Bluetooth is described in our earlier publications.
