Abstract

In many communication systems, there exists an issue with initial detection of a signal on a channel. The purpose of the initial detection is to find and characterize a signal for demodulation. This detection must be sensitive enough to characterize any signal which could be demodulated, while at the same time algorithmically simple enough to be run as a background process in a portable product without draining power.
