Abstract

A binary phase-only filter (BPOF) bandwidth and, correspondingly, the performance with respect to stochastic noise are introduced as filter design parameters. A BPOF figure of merit is defined which references the matched filter. Analytical bounds on the BPOF signal-to-noise ratio are derived. The noise performance is illustrated with simulation results. It is demonstrated through analysis and simulation that BPOFs can be designed to perform well with respect to stochastic noise.
