Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) access schemes are becoming more prevalent among cellular and wireless broadband systems, accelerating the need for smaller, more energy efficient receiver solutions. Up to now the majority of OFDM texts have dealt with signal processing aspects. To address the current gap in OFDM integrated circuit (IC) instruction, Chiueh and Tsai have produced this timely text on baseband design.

OFDM Baseband Receiver Design for Wireless Communications covers the gamut of OFDM technology, from theories and algorithms to architectures and circuits. Chiueh and Tsai give a concise yet comprehensive look at digital communications fundamentals before explaining modulation and signal processing algorithms in OFDM receivers. Moreover, the authors give detailed treatment of hardware issues — from design methodology to physical IC implementation.

  • Closes the gap between OFDM theory and implementation
  • Enables the reader to
    • transfer communication receiver concepts into hardware
    • design wireless receivers with acceptable implementation loss
    • achieve low-power designs
  • Contains numerous figures to illustrate techniques
  • Features concrete design examples of MC-CDMA systems and cognitive radio applications
  • Presents theoretical discussions that focus on concepts rather than mathematical derivation
  • Provides a much-needed single source of material from numerous papers

Based on course materials for a class in digital communication IC design, this book is ideal for advanced undergraduate or post-graduate students from either VLSI design or signal processing backgrounds. New and experienced engineers in industry working on algorithms or hardware for wireless communications devices will also find this book to be a key reference.

Meet the Author

The authors and their groups at the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, and the National central University, Taoyuan, Taiwan, have been doing researching wireless communication baseband IC design for more than a decade, focusing especially on OFDM (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) systems recently. The research results have been published in important international journals and conferences, and are recognized by domestic and international awards.
Tzi-Dar Chiueh received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1989 and he is now a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the National Taiwan University (NTU). Since August 2004, he has also served as the Director of the Graduate Institute of Electronics Engineering at the same university. He has held visiting positions at ETH Zurich Switzerland and at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, Professor Chiueh has received the Acer longtern Award 11 times and the MXIC Golden Silicon Award in 2002 and 2005. His teaching efforts were recognized four times by the Teaching Excellence Award from the NTU. Professor Chiueh was the recipient of the Distinguished Research Achievements Award from the National Science Council, Taiwan, in 2004, and was awarded the Himax Chair Professor ship at the NTU in 2006. He is the author of more than 140 technical papers, many of which are on algorithm, architecture and integrated circuits for baseband communication systems.
