WIMAGIC - Worldwide Interoperability Microwave Broadband Access System for Next Generation Wireless Communications

The objective of this research project is to develop novel and highly innovative technical solutions which will be backward compatible with the existing global broadband wireless access standards (IEEE 802.16 and WiMAX) and linked to the specific end-user requirements, with high mobility (at least 120 km/h) and data rate of 100 Mbit/s over a 20 MHz channel.

The specific contribution of  VLSILAB Group in the project is the study of novel architectures for the base-band processing, with emphasis on channel decoding and MIMO detection.
