Summary: 
This paper presents an adaptive burst-mode M-QAM modem architecture suitable for variable rate broadband wireless packet data networks. The core signal processing functions for the modem are common to all constellations resulting in an efficient hardware architecture for field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementation.
