An improved data-aided (DA) frequency error detector (FED) and a frequency lock detector are proposed under large frequency offset for Digital Video Broadcasting Satellite Second Generation (DVB-S2) system. Computer simulations results show that the proposed error detector can increase the frequency acquisition range and decrease the acquisition time without complexity increase. Its closed-loop normalized frequency root mean square error (RMSE) improves at least 1.5 dB compared with that of conventional error detector. The proposed lock detector shows good lock indication. Its modified version can save more symbols to indicate the locking status.

    ABSTRACT: A data-aided (DA) carrier recovery (CR) method, which can select different coarse frequency estimation (CFE) paths adaptively according to the initial-estimation of frequency offset, is proposed for the 2nd Generation Digital Video Broadcasting Satellite (DVB-S2) system to accomplish the convergence within at most 400 pilot blocks. The well-known two-step CR scheme is used for the consideration of precision and speed, whereas both the CFE and the fine frequency estimation (FFE) adopt L&R algorithm as their basic frequency estimator so that the same correlation operation can be used by both of them to decrease the realization complexity. Optimum threshold values for different CFE paths are determined by analyzing the ill-selection probability and robust Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) performance has been confirmed by our simulations.

    ABSTRACT: Timing and carrier synchronization is a fundamental requirement for any wireless communication system to work properly. Timing synchronization is the process by which a receiver node determines the correct instants of time at which to sample the incoming signal. Carrier synchronization is the process by which a receiver adapts the frequency and phase of its local carrier oscillator with those of the received signal. In this paper, we survey the literature over the last five years (2010-2014) and present a comprehensive literature review and classification of the recent research progress in achieving timing and carrier synchronization in single-input-single-output (SISO), multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO), cooperative relaying, and multiuser/multicell interference networks. Considering both single-carrier and multi-carrier communication systems, we survey and categorise the timing and carrier synchronization techniques proposed for the different communication systems focusing on the system model assumptions for synchronization, the synchronization challenges, and the state-of-the-art synchronization solutions and their limitations. Finally, we envision some future research directions.
