This paper presents an efficient implementation of a frequency domain linear equalizer for WCDMA systems. A significant complexity reduction with respect to traditional equalizers can be achieved by means of frequency domain block processing. After deriving the analytical formulation of the equalizer coefficients, it is shown that the performance of the(More)
Emerging wireless communication systems are rapidly moving toward Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) technologies to guarantee either robustness and throughput as required by current broadband applications. Targeting a solution easy to integrate, MIMO technology can be conveniently adopted in combination with the largely known Orthogonal Frequency(More)
This paper presents the block processing engine (BPE), an application specific instruction-set processor (ASIP) explicitly designed for the implementation of multi-standard wireless terminals. Thanks to a high level of parallelism and a consistent use of pipeline, the BPE architecture fully satisfies stringent real-time constraints imposed by emerging(More)
The importance of having an efficient Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) implementation is universally recognized as one of the key enablers for the development of new and more powerful signal processing algorithms. In the field of telecommunications, one of its most recent applications is the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) modulation(More)
