A low-complexity correlation based symbol timing synchronization (CBTS) algorithm for UWB MB-OFDM systems is presented. The correlation based scheme attempts to locate the start of the FFT window during frame synchronization sequence (FS) of the received preamble by firstly correlating the received samples with known training samples and then identifying(More)
We derive the modified Cramér–Rao bound (MCRB) for symbol timing and phase offset estimation in the presence of nonlinear self-phase modulation (SPM) in a dispersion compensated long-haul optical fiber link with coherent detection at data rates below 10 Gigabaud. In the presence of a low-pass filter at the receiver front-end, we find that SPM degrades the(More)
Clock synchronization is a crucial issue in the operation of wireless sensor networks. Although the existing synchronization algorithms under linear clock model assumptions perform well for short periods, they will become problematic for applications with long-term requirements. In this paper, we consider a more realistic and flexible relationship model for(More)
This article deals with a new energy based adaptive timing synchronization scheme (ATS) which estimates the symbol timing information within two (2) OFDM symbols and updates the information with different frequency bands (adaptive in sense) in a multi-band orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MB-OFDM) based system. The new approach provides(More)
