Abstract: The tanlock carrier recovery structure has been shown to be the low SNR approximation to the optimum ML carrier phase estimator for a carrier with linear data modulations such as MPSK. It has long been known to have better performance than a Costas' loop or a squarer/PLL for BPSK, because its tangent-function phase detector characteristic has an extended linear range compared to the sine-function phase detector characteristic of the latter loops. Its implementation in conventional closed-loop form, however, requires the use of a divider which suffers from the problem of output overflow when the input divisor signal becomes very small. We suggest here an open-loop implementation which does not require the use of a divider and a VCO. The operational and performance advantages of this open-loop implementation over the conventional closed-loop implementation are pointed out. Some sample BER results for a coherent receiver employing this open-loop tanlock carrier recovery system are obtained via computer simulations. The results show that the receiver achieves significant performance gains over differential detection.
