This paper presents an efficient blind symbol timing estimation scheme for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with constant modulus constellation. The proposed technique is designed to estimate symbol timing offsets by minimizing the power difference between subcarriers with similar indices over two consecutive OFDM symbols based on the assumption that the channel slowly changes over time. The proposed power difference estimator (PDE) is totally blind because it requires… CONTINUE READING
