The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is a widely used algorithm in signal processing applications. FFT hardware architectures are designed to meet the requirements of the most demanding applications terms of performance, circuit area and/or power consumption. This chapter summarizes the research on FFT hardware architectures by presenting the FFT algorithms, the building blocks in FFT hardware architectures, the architectures themselves and the bit reversal algorithm.
