A robust joint symbol timing and fractional frequency offset estimator for OFDM systems in multipath fading channels is proposed based on cyclic shifting and autocorrelation properties of PN codes. A new timing metric is also introduced by considering the delay spread to improve the robustness of the estimator in the multipath fading channels.
