Most of the wireless standards utilize OFDM technique to enhance the transmission rate which is the vital requirement that is to be met today. The increases in the throughput of FFT block in OFDM system which in turn improves the transmission rate of the system. This paper presents high throughput FFT processor based on Multi-path delay feedback architecture for OFDM systems. Mixed Radix-2/22/23/24 DIF FFT algorithm is used. A comparison is done for different pipeline architecture such as MDF, MDC and SDF using the same algorithm with respect to throughput. The design is fully coded in VHDL, simulated in Xilinx ISE 13.2 and is implemented on Virtex-5 FPGA.
