Summary: 
Recently, in the modem, the spread spectrum communication system and the software radio, Digital Signal Processor type Squaring Loop (DSP-squaring-loop) is employed in the demodulation of Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK) signal. The DSP-squaring-loop extracts the carrier signal that is used for the coherent detection. However, in case the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is low, the DSP-Phase Locked Loop (DSP-PLL) can not pull in the frequency offset and the phase offset. In this paper, we propose a DSP-squaring-loop that is robust against noise and which uses the adaptive notch filter type frequency estimator and the adaptive Band Pass Filter (BPF). The proposed method can extract the carrier signal in the low SNR environment. The effectiveness of the proposed method is confirmed by the computer simulation results.
