This paper presents a high-speed hardware architecture of an improved Givens rotation-based QR decomposition, named tournament-based complex Givens rotation (T-CGR). In the proposed approach, more than one pivots are selected and zero-insertion processes of Givens-rotations are performed in parallel like tournament in order to increase the throughput. As a result, the QR decomposition performance significantly increases compared to the triangular systolic array (TSA) approach. Moreover, the circuit area was reduced due to the smaller number of flip-flops for holding the computed results during the decomposition process. The proposed QR decomposition hardware was implemented using TSMC 0.25 um technology. The experimental results show that the proposed architecture achieves 73.00% speed-up over the TACR/TSA-based architecture for the 8 × 8 matrix decomposition.
