A Novel Hierarchical Low Complexity Synchronization Method for OFDM Systems

Abstract : A new hierarchical synchronization method is proposed for initial timing synchronization in orthogonal frequency- division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Based on the proposal of new training symbol, a threshold based timing metric is designed for accurate estimation of start of OFDM symbol in a frequency selective channel. Threshold is defined in terms of noise distributions and false alarm, which makes it independent of type of channel it is applied. Frequency offset estimation is also done for the proposed training symbol. The performance of the proposed timing metric is evaluated using simulation results. The proposed method achieves low mean squared error (MSE) in timing offset estimation at five(5 x) times lower computational complexity compared to cross-correlation based method in a frequency selective channel. It is also computationally efficient compared to hybrid approaches for OFDM timing synchronization.
