"A bit rate filter type signal conditioner/bit synchronizer used in a split-phase PCM system is modeled digitally in three stages to determine overall system performance. General computer algorithms are developed to approximate independent operation of each major segment within the device. Bit rate effects and signal time-base error are investigated yielding the characteristic G-curves for the phase detector. These characteristics facilitate subsequent analysis of a linear equivalent digital-data-transition tracking phase-locked loop under several typical time-base error input conditions. Using bit error probabilities as performance criteria, the conditioner/synchronizer is found to perform adequately at signal-to-noise ratios exceeding +10dB. For inputs below this value, the detection capability deteriorates rapidly with decreasing signal levels"--Abstract, page ii.
