  • VLSI Architectures and Rapid Prototyping Testbeds for Wireless Systems 

    Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2005-06-01)
    The rapid evolution of wireless access is creating an ever changing variety of standards for indoor and outdoor environments. The real-time processing demands of wireless data rates in excess of 100 Mbps is a challenging ...
  • VLSI Architectures for Multitier Wireless Systems 

    Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1999-11-20)
    Next-generation computing systems will be highly integrated using wireless networking. The Rice Everywhere NEtwork (RENÃ ) project is exploring the integration of WCDMA cellular systems, high speed wireless LANs, and home ...
  • VLSI Decoder Architecture for High Throughput, Variable Block-size and Multi-rate LDPC Codes 

    Sun, Yang; Karkooti, Marjan; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (2007-05-01)
    A low-density parity-check (LDPC) decoder architecture that supports variable block sizes and multiple code rates is presented. The proposed architecture is based on the structured quasi-cyclic (QC-LDPC) codes whose ...
  • VLSI implementation of the multistage detector for next generation wideband CDMA receivers 

    Xu, Gang; Rajagopal, Sridhar; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Aazhang, Behnaam (2002-03-20)
    The multistage detection algorithm has been proposed as an effective interference cancellation scheme for next generation Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) base stations. In this paper, we propose a real-time ...
  • W-CDMA real-time algorithm implementation and evaluation 

    Jones, Bryan Allen (2000-05-20)
    This paper describes a platform to enable and explore the design and implementation of next-generation CDMA wireless base stations. A DSP and FPGA-based multiprocessor board is integrated into a Simulink-based wireless ...
