    In our Software Defined Radio project we perform a feasibility study of a software defined radio for two communication standards: HiperLAN/2 and Bluetooth. In this paper the Matlab/Simulink implementation of the HiperLAN/2 demodulator for the demonstrator of the project is iscussed, with special attention for the frequency offset corrector. This type of correction is necessary to prevent large bit error rates that are caused by inter-subcarrier interference. The method that is proposed in this paper uses preamble section A to estimate the frequency offset. Simulation results for an AWGN channel show that the method is capable of correcting frequency offsets up to the boundary defined in the standard [1]. It was observed that frequency offset correction using only preamble section A is sensitive to –for example– synchronization errors in case real-life analog front-end signals are used.
