Design of OFDM Transceiver for LTE System—A Survey


LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the latest technology in wireless communication. It is being used because of its peak data rate and spectral efficiency. LTE uses OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) technology for radio transmission and reception in downlink. OFDM is a multicarrier modulation and multiplexing technique to improve data rate, spectral efficiency and minimize the problem of fading and ISI (Inter Symbol Interference). Many transceivers design have been designed for OFDM system to minimize error and maximize throughput of the information being transmitted and received at the system. The purpose of this article is to present a survey of the published literature which deals with various OFDM transceiver design, focusing on the merits and demerits of the corresponding OFDM transceiver design.
