Abstract. This paper presents two Cordic based algorithms which may be used for digital baseband processing in OFDM and/or CDMA based communication systems. The first one is a linear least squares based multiuser detector for CDMA incorporating descrambling and despreading. The second algorithm is a pure Cordic based FFT implementation. Both algorithms can be implemented using solely Cordic based architectures (e.g. coprocessors or ASIPs). The algorithms exactly fit the needs of a multistandard terminal as they both are freely parameterizable. This regards to the accuracy of the results as well as to the parameters of the performed function (e.g. size of the FFT).
