Some of the current projects in conjunction with the SPM group.
Orthgonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)
is core to emerging and future wireless systems. Of note,
802.16, 802.20 and 3GPP LTE all depend upon OFDM.
The goal of this project is to generate core expertise in
this area, publish in leading conferences and journals
while securing valuable IP for the project participants.
Numerous ASIC prototypes will result.
Lattice-reduction-aided detection (LRAD) has been identified as a way of improving the
performance of linear detection strategies imperative for low complexity MIMO detection.
This is a hardware device designed to be used in the design and testing of wireless MIMO communications systems. It is connected to a PC via USB 2.0 or ethernet and uses an on-board FPGA to allow implementation of algorithms in logic, together with provision for multiple radio modules.
