This paper proposes a two-stage synchronization scheme using a serial search non-coherent correlator appropriate for the IEEE 802.15.4a system. The proposed method improved the synchronization performance by using multi-pulse signals unlike the conventional method using single-pulse signals. It also compensated for the degradation of performance at low SNR resulting from the use of fixed threshold by applying the adaptive threshold technique. The proposed method showed a detection probability that is higher by approximately 0.2-0.3 compared with the conventional method in the IEEE 802.15.4a channel model.
