In this paper, to reduce the memory size requirements of IFFT for OFDM-based applications, we propose a new IFFT design technique based on a combined integer mapping of three IFFT input signals: modulated data, pilot and null signals. The proposed method focuses on reducing the size of memory cells in the first two stages of the single-path delay feedback (SDF) IFFT architectures since the first two stages require 75% of the total memory cells. By simulations of 2048-point IFFT design for cognitive radio systems, it is shown that the proposed IFFT design method achieves more than 13% reduction in gate count and 11% reduction in power consumption compared with conventional IFFT design.
