Clock Recovery MM
This block is meant to act as a clock recovery, to synchronize to a signal's frequency and phase, so that symbols can be extracted.
Deprecated in 3.9 (Favor Symbol_Sync instead.)
Specifically, this implements the Mueller and Mueller (M&M) discrete-time error-tracking synchronizer. The peak to peak input signal amplitude must be symmetrical about zero, as the M&M timing error detector (TED) is a decision directed TED, and this block uses a symbol decision slicer referenced at zero. The input signal peak amplitude should be controlled to a consistent level (e.g. +/- 1.0) before this block to achieve consistent results for given gain settings; as the TED's output error signal is directly affected by the input amplitude. The input signal must have peaks in order for the TED to output a correct error signal. If the input signal pulses do not have peaks (e.g. rectangular pulses) the input signal should be conditioned with a matched pulse filter or other appropriate filter to peak the input pulses. For a rectangular base pulse that is N samples wide, the matched filter taps would be [1.0/float(N)]*N, or in other words a moving average over N samples. This block will output samples at a rate of one sample per recovered symbol, and is thus not outputting at a constant rate. Output symbols are not a subset of input, but may be interpolated.
