In this paper, Distributed Arithmetic (DA) based K-best List Sphere Detector (LSD) for a 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) receiver is proposed. The K-best LSD block implemented with the use of DA, reduces the size of the parallel hardware multiply-accumulate. These DA based blocks are compared with conventional multiplier based blocks and found that the proposed design has an improvement in terms of area. This design has minimal hardware and computational complexity to meet the requirements of LTE standard. The VHDL coding for K-best LSD using DA for LTE is downloaded onto Xilinx xc3s100e-4vq100 and results were verified.
