In this paper the authors deal with the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) implementation of an entire digital baseband wireless communication system. The proposed BER Tester (BERT) integrates the modules of a typical communication system along with an AWGN channel into a single FPGA. The BER is calculated for a 22 MIMO system also. This FPGA based solution is a more cost effective, flexible and faster solution compared with the commercially available BER test equipments and software based simulators.
