Synchronization and Parameter Estimation in Wireless Communications
Journal : Ph. D. Thesis Number: CSHCN PhD 2000-2
Following the estimation theorem, we derive a maximum likelihood (ML) slow frequency-selective fading channel estimator using the frequency domain approach introduced by the properties of Toeplitz matrices in the third part. In the fourth part, a carrier frequency offset estimator and a joint carrier phase and timing offset estimators with moderate complexities are proposed. Their systolic VLSI implementations are also presented. The performance of the proposed estimators approaches their corresponding performance limits.
