MMSE MIMO Detector 

MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) techniques are being used more and more in recent and upcoming standards since they drastically outperform traditional SISO (Single Input Single Output) techniques in terms of maximum throughput and range. This gain results from an increased spectral efficiency, lowering the overall system costs.
A MMSE MIMO detector is an integral part of a MIMO receiver. The Creonic MMSE detector IP core offers high throughputs even on low-cost FPGAs and convinces with a low implementation complexity at the same time. Its flexibility at design-time and run-time makes it the ideal fit for all kinds of MIMP applications.
