W-CDMA offers variable spreading factor and multiple codes per user to enable features like high data rates and multiple services for the same connection. To do so, rake receiver architecture for W-CDMA should be configurable such that hardware is utilized optimally at varying requirements. Additionally architecture for downlink receiver should consume as less power as possible. In this paper, four different architectures for rake receiver are designed and implemented on FPGA. They are compared… CONTINUE READING
