Summary: 
Due to increasing demand for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, simultaneous connections for many terminals are requested for current wireless communication systems. Interleave division multiple access (IDMA) has superior multiuser detection performance and attains high data transmission efficiency in multiuser communications. This paper describes the VLSI implementation of an interference canceller for OFDM-IDMA systems. The conventional architecture decreases a throughput in pipeline processing due to wait time occurring in interleave and deinterleave memory units. The proposed architecture adopts dual-frame processing to solve the problem of the wait time and achieves a high utilization ratio in pipeline stage operation. In the implementation results, the proposed architecture has reduced circuit area and power consumption by 25% and 41% for BPSK demodulation and 33% and 44% for QPSK demodulation compared with the conventional architecture on the same throughput condition.
