Carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) has caught attention as OFDM systems have become widely adopted in recent years. In this paper, we design a novel double-differential (DD) codec with low computational complexity. Our design bypasses CFO and channel estimation, and is easy to implement at both transmitter and receiver. It also guarantees full multipath diversity, and reduces the peak-to-average power ratio from the number of subcarriers to the channel order. In addition, it is robust to CFO drifting. The closed form of the performance for our design is derived for OFDM transmissions over frequency-selective channels with CFO. Thorough simulation results corroborate our claims.
