The conventional design of channel equalizer for IEEE 802.11a wireless local area network (WLAN) does not consider the different requirements of the adopted modulation schemes. In this paper, an adaptive-modulation-oriented channel equalizer and its VLSI architecture are developed. We analyze the different computation efforts of the modulation schemes and consider the system-level adaptive-modulation technique in the hardware implementation of channel equalizer. The adaptive-modulation-oriented channel equalizer applied to IEEE 802.11a can provide the appropriate architectures for different modulation schemes. In order to save the hardware resource, a dual-mode coordinate rotation digital computer (CORDIC) processor is designed, which is reused to accomplish rectangular-to-polar conversion and phase correction. The simulations and an implementation using FPGA technology validate the design
