Title: Fixed clock based arbitrary symbol rate timing recovery loop

Abstract: A QAM data signal timing recovery loop feedback element provides a fixed sampling time offset adjustment to two continuously variable digital rate interpolators/decimators to produce a quadrature output stream at a programmed rational rate multiple of the actual baud rate of the received data signal. The continuously variable digital rate interpolators/decimators are configured at startup so as to produce output streams at the same programmed rational rate multiple of the nominal baud rate of the anticipated received data signal, assuming the fs sample timing offset adjustment stream provided by the timing recovery feedback element to be identically 0. The "nominal" fixed sampling rate fs of the received analog input signal need not be rationally related to the nominal baud rate of the anticipated received data signal.
