A precise estimation and compensation of SFO (Sampling Frequency Offset) is an important issue in OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) system, because sampling frequency mismatch between the transmitter and the receiver dramatically degrades the system performance due to the loss of orthogonality between the subcarriers. However, the conventional method causes serious performance degradation of SFO estimation in low SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) or large Doppler frequency environment. Therefore, in this paper, the authors propose two SFO estimation methods which can achieve stable operation in low SNR and large Doppler frequency environment.
