ABSTRACT

An improved technique with a fractional sampling based on two samples per chip, according to the Nyquist criterion, has been employed by the authors to enhance the performance in the code synchronization of UMTS (or W-CDMA) systems. In this paper, we investigate on the theoretical rationale of such a promising behavior. The performance is analyzed for several wireless channels, in the presence of typical pedestrian and vehicular scenarios of the IMT2000/UMTS cellular systems.
