This paper presents computation results of the minimum peak sidelobe filter (LP filter) for the 15-bitM-sequence phase coded signal with feedback connection [4,3,0] and initial condition 1001. The design of the filter resorts to the linear programming method. The peak sidelobe level is reduced to −21.47 dB by the LP filter of length 15, and is 7.49 dB lower than that by the matched filter. The LP filter can suppress the peak sidelobe even more by increasing its length. The minimum peak sidelobe filter for the 15-bitM-sequence phase coded signal (initial condition 1001) has been implemented with a surface acoustic wave (SAW) device. Experiments show that the peak sidelobe level of the manufactured filter is −19 dB and, thus, only differs from the theoretical value of −21.47 dB by 2.47 dB.
