This paper describes the design and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based 4 × 4 breadth heuristic Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) decoder using 16 and 64 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) schemes. The intention of this work is to observe the performance of Candidate Execution with Low Latency Approach for soft MIMO detector in FPGA (CELLA). The Smart Ordering and Candidate Adding (SOCA), Parallel Candidate Adding (PCA) and Backward Candidate Adding (BCA) give better performance

Simulation and experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed work under the system 4 × 4 MIMO-OFDM employing 16 QAM and 64 QAM. The proposed experiment is implemented in Xilinx Virtex 5 C5VSX240T. The performance results, in terms of FPGA level 76% slice reduction, 58.76% throughput improvement, 75% power reduction and 87% latency reduction, are achieved. The BER performance is observed and compared with the conventional algorithms. Thus, the proposed work achieves better outcome than the conventional work.
