Based on phase adjustment, this work investigates a low-complexity all-digital sample clock dither (ADSCD) to perform coherent sampling for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) timing recovery. To reduce complexity, only tri-state buffers are acquired to build a multiphase all-digital clock management (ADCM), which can generate more than 32 phases over gigahertz without phase-locked or delay-locked loops. Following divide-and-conquer search and triangulated approximation, the phase adjustment is simple but efficient, such that four preambles are adequate to make analog-to-digital (A/D) sampling coherent. Performance evaluation indicates that the proposed ADSCD can tolerate ±400-ppm clock offsets with 0.8 ~ 1.3-dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) losses at 8% PER in frequency-selective fading. Hence, this scheme involves a little overhead to ensure fast recovery and wide offset tolerance for OFDM packet transmissions.
