Low-Power On-The-Fly Reconfigurable Iterative MIMO Detection and LDPC Decoding Design Conference Paper uri icon


  • Manufacturing and operation of wireless systems require a practical solution for achieving low-power and high-performance when using advance communication apparatus such as that using multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO). Often algorithm solutions achieve very high performance but over only in a narrow range of operating parameters. This paper presents a hardware design of MIMO detection that allows real-time switching between various algorithms and detection effort to achieve high performance over the wide-range of signal to noise ratio (SNR) found in realistic operating conditions. We illustrate a design with over 80% reduction in detection power that satisfies the required quality of service (QoS) in SNRs (Eb/No) as low as 8.7 dB.
