DSP Chips Form Ideal Foundation For White Space Radios

Texas Instruments’ multicore system-on-chip (SoC) processors are one good way to implement radios for the new white space wireless standards. TI’s KeyStone line consists of a mix of DSPs and RISC processors that can be programmed to meet current and forthcoming white space standards. White space refers to the unused TV broadcast channels in the 54- to 698-MHz spectrum. These …

Developing processor-compatible C-code for FPGA hardware acceleration

The three common processor implementation models used in FPGA cores are the microprocessor, microcontroller, and specialty processor. A microprocessor is generally a stand-alone core with limited peripherals. Microprocessors are usually implemented with at least a 32-bit or 64-bit architecture. They are generally targeted toward advanced computing applications. Microprocessors may include advanced performance architectural elements, SIMD units to provide vector-based …
