2 Introduction This submission discusses the criteria for a good SFD and recommends a particular sequence

3 Look in these positions
Looking for SFD Cross correlate with SFD Only look in pulse positions different to preamble E.g. if SFD = Cross correlate with The more zeros in the SFD, the more positions you need to look at and the more chance that there will be errors. Equivalently, the greater the number of noise sources. Look in these positions

4 Maximise minimum distance
Need to maximise the distance between cross correlation with SFD and cross correlation with preamble. Also must maximise the distance between and cross correlation with SFD and with transition sequence between the preamble and the SFD

5 Example Bad SFD Small distance Large distance

6 Minimise # occurrences of Min Distance
If minimum distance occurs only once, this is better than occurring many times Rule of thumb: 0.2dBs worse for each doubling of # of symbols in Preamble to SFD transition sequence where min distance occurs Translates to -0.2×Log2(# mds) # times min distance occurs

7 SFD Scoring Formula for how good SFD is:
20Log10(Min Dist/sqrt(# zeros))-0.2Log2(#mds) Gives performance in dBs

8 5 places where error most likely
Time Domain proposal Score = 3.94 dB Equal best min dist. of 5 Ends in ‘1’ Nine ‘0’s Noise/Error sources Five symbols at min distance 5 error opportunities 5 places where error most likely

9 Same, but fewer error opportunities
Score = 4.22 dB Equal best min dist. of 5 Ends in ‘1’ Two symbols at min distance 2 error opportunities Nine ‘0’s Noise/Error sources 2 places where error most likely

10 Best Score ending in ‘1’ Score = 4.93 dB Equal best min dist. of 5
Seven ‘0’s Noise/Error sources Ends in ‘1’ Seven symbols at min distance 7 error opportunities One of eight equivalent SFDs

11 Best Score Score = 4.97 dB Equal best min dist. of 5 Seven ‘0’s
Noise/Error sources Six symbols at min distance 6 error opportunities Ends in ‘0’ One of twelve equivalent SFDs

12 0101110110110001 Recommendation Best Score is 4.97dB
Implementations may not see last pulse in time to switch Best score where last pulse is “one” i.e. does not need to be looked at is only 0.04dBs worse at 4.93dBs DecaWave Recommended SFD is:
