Reliable data detection in time division multiple access (TDMA) communication systems strictly depends on the availability of accurate estimates of the synchronization parameters of the received signal, i.e., carrier frequency/phase and symbol timing, which must be derived from the burst preamble. The authors focus on the carrier frequency estimation aspect, and present a fast, open-loop, all-digital frequency offset estimation technique, whose performance is assessed in two different communication scenarios: a TDMA satellite link employing standard modulation and burst formats, and a mobile cellular terrestrial radio system with signal and channel characteristics obeying the pan-European Group Special Mobile (GSM) recommendations. The use of the algorithm as a frequency error detector (discriminator) in a recursive ("closed-loop") frequency offset estimator is also discussed, and some results concerning both the transient and the steady-state behavior of such a scheme are presented. Finally, the impact of the algorithm on the receiver BER is briefly analyzed.
