In this paper, we propose and describe a new synchronizer for the FFT timing applicable to multi-carrier spread-spectrum (MC-SS) communication systems. The performance of the synchronizer is evaluated in terms of false- and miss-detection probabilities in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rayleigh fading.
