The millimetre-wave frequency range 57-64 GHz has been already standardised by the IEEE 802.15.3c for Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN). The specified PHY targets multi-Giga bit per second data rate with two modes, Single-Carrier Frequency Domain Equalization (SC-FDE) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), both modulation schemes are based on framed data transmission, hence, a frame detection mechanism is required. In this paper, a frame detector is designed and implemented on FPGA chip; this frames detector targets both modes SC-FDE and OFDM defined by the IEEE 802.15.3c millimetre wave standard.
