Based on the constellation diagram of the different modulations, a novel S and Π-decision rule is designed for the analog demapper of the orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. The dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) system is chosen as an OFDM platform to compare the performance among the proposed S and Π-decision decoder, hard-decision and soft-decision decoders. Simulation results demonstrate that both the complexity and performance of S and Π-decision demapper
