This paper proposes a simple timing synchronization method in order to design a timing synchronization circuit with low-complex and low-volume digital signal processing (DSP) for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) packet transmission systems. The proposed method utilizes the subtraction process for acquirement of a timing metric of fast Fourier transform (FFT) window, whereas the conventional methods utilize the multiplication process. This paper adopts the proposed method to a standardized OFDM format, IEEE 802.11a, and elucidates that the proposed one shows good transmission performance as well as the conventional one in fast time-variant multi-path Rayleigh fading channels by computer simulation.
