This letter presents a timing synchronization method of high-rate wireless personal area network (WPAN) systems encountered with a multipath fading channel. Two-stage timing synchronization using constant amplitude zero auto-correlation (CAZAC) training symbols and correlation techniques is adopted. At the same time, a simple way of setting a reliable threshold used to estimate WPAN timing is provided.
