The demapping block (not shown in Fig. 3) demaps the symbol stream from multiple antennas, removes pilots, and demaps data-carrying symbols back to the binary bit stream. 3 Domain Transformation Before sending data to the analog front-end at the transmitter, symbols from all narrowband subcarriers are collected and are simultaneously transformed to a timedomain signal using an Inverse fast Fourier transform (IFFT). Thereafter, CP is added to each OFDM symbol to protect data transmission from being interfered by ISI and ICI.

In light of the aforementioned property, a hierarchical network architecture is adopted that splits local and global communication into two separate networks, which are handled independently using different network topology and switching techniques. 8 illustrates an overview of the hierarchical NoC deployed in a 4 4 array. Communication between neighboring RCs (local) within each tile is performed using bi-directional dedicated links, whereas inter-tile global transfers are realized through a hierarchy of network routers structured in a tree topology using a static routing strategy, see shaded part in Fig.

Basics of wireless communication, such as symbol modulation and propagation channels, are not addressed but can be found in [13, 16], since the purpose of the present chapter is to highlight design challenges and point out baseband processing properties that can be exploited to achieve efficient hardware implementations. Worth mentioning is that this book mainly focuses on MIMO-OFDM systems because of their importance and popularity in contemporary wireless communication systems. However, support of other wireless technologies is a natural extension and can be easily mapped onto the presented reconfigurable cell array thanks to its flexible hardware infrastructure.
