— Rotated and cyclic-Q delayed (RCQD) quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) improve DVB-T2 system performance over highly time-frequency selective channels. However, when compared with conventional QAM demapper, the RCQD demapper requires a higher computational complexity. In this paper, a complexity-reduced max-log demapper is derived and implemented over a FPGA platform. The proposed demapper allows to find the maximum likelihood (ML) point with a search spanning only M signal constellation points and guarantees to obtain the same log-likelihood ratio (LLR) metrics as the optimum max-log soft decision demapper while spanning at most 2 M signal constellation points. The optimized hardware implementation introduces only a slight performance loss compared to the floating-point full complexity max-log performance. Index Terms — DVB-T2, Rotated and Cyclic Q Delayed (RCQD) Constellations, Log-Likelihood Ratio (LLR), Max-Log Demapper.
