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 the first significant multi-path component by comparing the correlated samples of two consecutive OFDM symbols against a predefined threshold… CONTINUE READING
