Abstract Historically, most radar sensor array processing has been implemented using dedicated and specialized processing systems. This approach was necessary because the algorithm computation requirements were several orders of magnitude higher than any(More)
As field programmable gate array (FPGA) technology has steadily improved, FPGAs have become viable alternatives to other technology implementations for high-speed classes of digital signal processing (DSP) applications. In particular , radar front-end signal processing, an application formerly dominated by custom very large scale integration (VLSI) chips,(More)
Recently, educational institutions largely adopted open source e-learning platforms. Several studies and comparisons between those platforms were conducted. However, these analyses were more focused into purely technical issues (standards support, development platform used, scalability, etc.) than into functional issues. It was noted that most of the(More)
Many radar sensor systems demand high performance front-end signal processing. The high processing throughput is driven by the fast analog-to-digital conversion sampling rate, the large number of sensor channels, and stringent requirements on the filter design leading to a large number of filter taps. The computational demands range from tens to hundreds of(More)
