Channel Encoding Block for Mobile WiMAX Networks Using Reconfigurable Hardware

Rafael Kunst, Cristiano Bonato Both, Felipe Henes


WiMAX technology aims to provide wireless metropolitan area transmissions with guaranteed quality of service. Towards this aim, sophisticated channel encoding techniques must be implemented in a hardware, which is optimized for such techniques. In this context, this article presents the design of a channel encoder for mobile WiMAX networks, which is prototyped in reconfigurable hardware architecture.The validation of the prototype was conducted considering scheduled traffic in the medium access control layer. Results showed that the channel encoder is fundamental for guaranteeing quality of service in mobile WiMAX networks.

Keywords: Channel Encoding Block, Reconfigurable Hardware, WiMAX.
