ABSTRACT: A novel blind carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation algorithm was proposed which is based on estimating signal parameter via rotational invariance techniques (ESPRIT) for multi-input multi-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems with virtual carriers. The algorithm estimates CFO in closed-form by jointly exploiting the shift-invariant structure of received signals on multiple receive antennas. It can work effectively in different type of channel. Performance analysis of the proposed algorithm using Monte Carlo simulations and comparisons with some existing approaches are also reported.
