Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing

OFDMCOFDMOFDM system comparison table
This system transmits compressed digital audio, digital video and other data in an MPEG transport stream, using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (COFDM or OFDM) modulation.
The time to compute the inverse-FFT or FFT transform has to take less than the time for each symbol, which for example for DVB-T (FFT 8k) means the computation has to be done in 896 µs or less.
