Title:
REDUCING MEMORY USAGE IN NONCOHERENT SIGNAL PROCESSING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2004070413
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A method for detecting a positioning signal includes (a) correlating a segment of a received positioning signal with a reference signal of a selected code phase and frequency to obtain a correlation value, (b) if the correlation value is less than a predetermined minimum, assigning the correlation value to the predetermined minimum, and (c) accumulating the correlation value in a sum of correlation values obtained using other segments of the received positioning signal. In addition, the correlation value may be reduced by a predetermined value, which is preferably an expected mean value for a noise component in the segment of the received positioning signal.
