Abstract

In this study the VLSI architecture for MIMO-OFDM transceiver and the algorithm for the implementation of MMSE detection in MIMO-OFDM system is proposed. The implemented MIMO-OFDM system is capable of transmitting data at high throughput in physical layer and provides optimized hardware resources while achieving the same data rate. The proposed architecture has low latency, high throughput and efficient resource utilization. The result obtained is compared with the MATLAB results for verification. The main aim is to reduce the hardware complexity of the channel estimation.
