Summary: 
This paper deals with our works on developing a high-throughput wireless LAN using a group layered space-time (GLST) system with low-complexity MIMO decoder. It achieves the throughput of 600 Mbps for 30 meter propagation distance by utilizing 80 MHz bandwidth in the 5 GHz frequency band. Run test under channel model B of IEEE802.11TGn demonstrates its excellent performance. The register transfer level results show that the developed system is synthesized successfully and the prototyping in the target FPGA chips of Stratix II EP2S180F1508C4 gives the expected results.
