The table below lists various length frame synchronization patterns that are commonly used in
PCM and Telemetry receivers. These patterns are "Optimum" in the sense that they provide
the best possible false alarm performance against Gaussian Noise for a given pattern length
in Baseband PCM systems. These patterns might also be used for PN patterns or codes --
BUT their cross-correlation performance should be checked out before they are used! The
best use for these patterns is for Frame Sync Words (or Unique Words) in burst / packet
Spread Spectrum Systems.
