Abstract. Frequency synchronisation is a vital part of every inner receiver for wireless communication. In this paper we present different implementation alternatives for non data aided frequency estimation of BPSK/QPSK bursts with respect to implementation complexity and communications performance. Results with regard to different quantization levels, varying burstlengths, frequency offsets and modulation indices for different signal to noise ratios are presented. Implementation results are based on XILINX Virtex II Pro FPGA devices.
