This letter introduces a simple way of estimating the integer frequency offset (IFO) of OFDM-based digital video broadcasting (DVB) systems. By modifying the conventional maximum likelihood (ML) estimator to include the multi-stage estimation strategy, the IFO estimator is derived. Simulations indicate that the proposed IFO estimator works robustly when compared to ML estimator.
