  • Abstract

    Polyphase sequences such as Pn (n=1, 2, 3, 4, x), Golomb, Frank, and the Chu are with good correlation properties, lower sidelobe levels and large merit factor values are helpful in applications like radar, sonar and channel estimation and communications. The goodness of a sequence obtained from merit factor. The transmitted and received signal may not be the same due to noise. The correlation function of given sequence is expressed by ISL (Integrated Sidelobe Level) by minimizing the ISL metrics the performance parameter merit factor is improved. To make this possible the ISL metric is expressed in the frequency domain and minimized to its most recent values and fixing at their most recent value until the predefined threshold satisfied. Because of FFT operations, the Cyclic Algorithm New applied to very long length sequences say N~106. In this paper, the Merit factor and correlation levels compared with standard, and cyclic algorithm new initialized with Polyphase sequences for lengths 102~104. Moreover, the observations made for four consecutive even and odd integer lengths say 162, 172, 182, and 192. CAN (P3, Golomb) exhibits merit factor improvement of 3.77%. These sequences of sidelobe levels reduced.
