Abstract: With the advent of Multi Input Multi Output (MIMO) systems, the system performance is highly dependent on the accurate representation of the channel condition that causes the wireless channel emulation to become increasingly important. The conventional Finite Impulse Response (FIR) based emulator has a high real-time but the complexity rapidly becomes impractical for larger array sizes. However, the frequency domain approach can avoid this problem and reduce the complexity for higher order arrays. The complexity comparison between in time domain and in frequency domain is made in this paper. The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) as an important component of signal processing in frequency domain is briefly introduced and an FGPA system architecture based on CORDIC algorithm is proposed. The full design is implemented in Xilinx’s Virtex-5. © (2013) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
