Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for fine symbol timing estimation are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a wireless receiver includes a differential detector, a correlator, a coarse symbol timing estimator, and a fine symbol timing estimator. The differential detector is configured to detect phase differences in a received preamble signal modulated using differential phase shift keying. The correlator is configured to correlate symbol values output by the differential detector against a reference sequence. The coarse symbol timing estimator is configured to generate a coarse symbol timing estimate, and to generate a coarse timing sample symbol index value corresponding to the coarse symbol timing estimate. The fine symbol timing estimator is configured to generate a fine symbol timing estimate that is more accurate than the coarse symbol timing estimate based on the coarse timing sample symbol index value and correlation samples at index values preceding and succeeding the coarse timing sample index value.
