TORRES, J; HERNANDEZ, F  and  HABERMANN, J. New digital demodulator with matched filters and curve segmentation techniques for BFSK demodulation: Analytical description. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2015, vol.35, n.3, pp.92-99. ISSN 0120-5609.

The present article relates, in general, to digital demodulation of Binary Frequency Shift Keying (BFSK). The objective of the present research is to obtain a new processing method for demodulating BFSK-signals in order to reduce hardware complexity in comparison with other methods reported. The solution proposed here makes use of the matched filter theory and curve segmentation algorithms. This paper describes the integration and configuration of a Sampler Correlator and curve segmentation blocks in order to obtain a digital receiver for a proper demodulation of the received signal. The proposed solution is shown to strongly reduce hardware complexity. In this part, a presentation of the proposed solution regarding the analytical expressions is addressed. The paper covers in detail the elements needed for properly configuring the system. In a second article the implementation of the system for FPGA technology and the simulation results in order to validate the overall performance are presented.

Keywords : Matched filters; curve segmentation; digital demodulation; BFSK; FPGA.
