In infrastructure-less wireless systems network-wise time and frequency synchronization can be achieved by exchanging mutual synchronization errors among neighboring nodes. Cooperative synchronization is based on the use of distributed digital locked loops (D-DLLs), as the extension to distributed systems of the classical concept of (analog or digital) looked loops. The convergence to a synchronized state depends ultimately on the degree of connectivity of the network. D-DLLs can be specialized for time or frequency synchronization by adopting an appropriate error detector, but preserving the same control loop. The focus of this paper is on distributed frequency synchronization for packet-based communication.
