Abstract

The paper deals with the problem of blind synchronization for OFDM/OQAM systems. Specifically, by exploiting the approximate conjugate-symmetry property of the beginning of a burst of OFDM/OQAM symbols, due to the presence of the time offset, a new procedure for blind symbol timing and CFO estimation is proposed. The performance of the derived blind estimators is analyzed by computer simulations; the results show that the proposed methods may provide acceptable performance for reasonable values of the signal-to-noise ratio.
