This letter describes two adaptive timing synchronization schemes for a short-ranged Bluetooth system in the partial-band noise environments. One estimates the variance of the partial-band interference, which is utilized for the trigger threshold value of the inquiry scan and page scan states, while second is designed using the scaled partial correlation value for the connection state. Numerical results show the proposed synchronization algorithms are robust to the partial-band noise interference and of low complexity, which is suitable for a low-cost personal area network (PAN).
