This paper proposes a fast synchronization scheme with a short preamble signal for high data rate wireless LAN systems using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). The proposed OFDM burst format for fast synchronization and the demodulator for the proposed OFDM burst format are described. The demodulator, which offers automatic frequency control and symbol timing detection, enables us to shorten the preamble length to one quarter that of a conventional one. Computer simulation results show that the degradation in required Eb/N0 due to the synchronization scheme is less than 1 dB in a selective Rayleigh fading channel.
