Efficient FPGA implementation of Gaussian noise generator for communication channel emulation

  title={Efficient FPGA implementation of Gaussian noise generator for communication channel emulation},
  author={Jean-Luc Danger and Adel Ghazel and Emmanuel Boutillon and H{\'e}di Laamari},
In this paper, a high accuracy gaussian noise generator emulator is defined and optimized for hardware implementation on FPGA. The proposed emulator is based on the Box-Muller method implemented by using ROMs tabulation and a random memory access. By means of accumulations, the central limit method is applied to the Box-Muller output gaussian distribution. After presenting the algorithmic method this paper analyzes its efficiency for different noise signal formats. Then the architecture to fit… CONTINUE READING
