As technologies such as mobile digital broadcasting, Wi-Fi, and WiMAX become more prevalent, increasing numbers of engineers are participating in OFDM system design. With OFDM techniques positioned to become the solution of choice for beyond 3G and 4G communications systems, the march toward single-chip solutions for small, power efficient OFDM devices is inevitable. However, up to now all OFDM books have focused on communications theory rather than hardware aspects. Composed of three sections, OFDM Baseband Receiver Design for Wireless Communications fills the gap for both signal processing and VLSI engineers with discussion of OFDM theories, algorithms, architectures and circuits.

  • The first section gives the reader a concise yet comprehensive look at digital communications fundamentals. Concepts behind formulas, rather than mathematical derivations, are emphasized.
  • The second part focuses on modern OFDM modulation and signal processing algorithms in OFDM receivers.
  • The third section introduces hardware design -- from design methodology to physical IC implementation -- and includes concrete examples for MC-CMDA and MIMO-OFDM WLAN.

Readers will learn how to transfer communication receiver concepts into hardware, design wireless transmitters and receivers with acceptable implementation loss, and achieve low-power designs.

Based on course materials from a highly successful graduate class in digital communication IC design, OFDM Baseband Receiver Design for Wireless Communications is aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students of VLSI Design and Communications/Signal Processing Courses. The didactic approach also makes the topic fully accessible for experienced Engineers working on algorithms or hardware for wireless communications devices.
