Abstract

This paper proposes a new demodulation structure by quantizing the constellation and using a lookup table. When the modulated noisy symbols are received by demodulation end, it’s not to calculate the Euclidean distances between a symbol and every constellation points, but quantize each dimension of this symbol’s coordinate value in the constellation, and check the bit soft values corresponding to this quantification point against a lookup table which is known by a pretreatment. The proposed method will omit a large number of the calculations for demodulation and simplifies the system. Employing look-up table instead of traditional computing can reduce the delay by 72.4% to 93.9% when the quantification interval is from 0.1 to 0.4. Meanwhile, the performance gain only reduces about 0.1dB.
