    Software radio terminals must be able to process many various communications standards. These standards are generally based on different master clock rates and thus employ different bit/chip rates. The most obvious solution to cope with the diversity of master clock rates in one terminal is to provide a dedicated master clock for each standard of operation. Not only too costly, this kind of soluti... View full abstract»
