Digital Auto Frequency Control for a General Purpose IF Subsystem with Multi-Modulation Schemes

X. Chen and H. Zhang
Abstract— This paper presents a general purpose auto-frequency control (AFC) algorithm for wireless communication systems with multi data rate and multi modulation schemes, such as FSK, GFSK, and MSK, etc. The proposed algorithm is a non-decision-aided recursive closed-loop which does not require timing recovery and permits wider tracking range. By implementing an adaptive loop gain control, the proposed AFC can achieve a higher tracking speed as well as better performance. A novel normalization scheme based on digital RSSI and bit shifting /truncation is also included to remove the effects on the estimated carrier frequency offset (CFO) by the gains and distortions all along the receiving path, such as inter-channel interference (ICI) and Auto-Gain Control (AGC) uncertainties which are not taken into consideration in most of the existing references.

Index Terms— Adaptive AFC, CFO, RSSI, synchronization, normalization.
