Implementation of Space Time Block Codes for Wimax Applications

M Ravi | A Madhusudhan

Abstract: This paper describes the concept, architecture, development and demonstration of a real time, maximum likelihood Alamouti decoder for a wireless 4-transmit 4-receiver multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) Smart Antenna Software Radio Test System (SASRATS) platform. It is implemented on a Xilinx Vertex 2 Pro Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Hardware, firmware, use of the Xilinx Core Generator Intellectual Property modules and experimental verification of the decoder are discussed.

Keywords: real-time implementation, Alamouti, FPGA, maximum likelihood decoder, MIMO
