In this paper we deal with the problem of data aided symbol timing estimation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems based on offset-QAM modulation (OFDM/OQAM). Specifically, a data-aided joint phase offset and symbol timing estimator, based on the least squares (LS) approach, exploiting the conjugate-symmetry property of a properly designed training symbol, is derived. Since the phase estimate is in closed form, the symbol timing estimate requires only an one-dimensional maximization procedure. The derived LS estimator does not require the knowledge of the prototype filter and, moreover, its performance, is independent of the carrier frequency offset.

Abstract

In this paper we deal with the problem of data aided symbol timing estimation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems based on offset-QAM modulation (OFDM/OQAM). Specifically, a data-aided joint phase offset and symbol timing estimator, based on the least squares (LS) approach, exploiting the conjugate-symmetry property of a properly designed training symbol, is derived. Since the phase estimate is in closed form, the symbol timing estimate requires only an one-dimensional maximization procedure. The derived LS estimator does not require the knowledge of the prototype filter and, moreover, its performance, is independent of the carrier frequency offset.
