# Timing Recovery in Digital Synchronous Data Receivers

@article{Mueller1976TimingRI, title={Timing Recovery in Digital Synchronous Data Receivers}, author={K. H. Mueller and M. Muller}, journal={IEEE Trans. Commun.}, year={1976}, volume={24}, pages={516-531} }

A new class of fast-converging timing recovery methods for synchronous digital data receivers is investigated. Starting with a worst-case timing offset, convergence with random binary data will typically occur within 10-20 symbols. The input signal is sampled at the baud rate; these samples are then processed to derive a suitable control signal to adjust the timing phase. A general method is outlined to obtain near-minimum-variance estimates of the timing offset with respect to a given steady… Expand

This paper explores architectures that can be used for loop control (i.e. adjustment of the fractional interpolation interval) by contrasting and comparing three different methods using numerically controlled oscillators and shows that auxiliary control must also be included to adjust the clocking of data into the filter bank to account for small differences in the sample clock and the data clock.
