Compared to the well understood macro networks, networks-on-chip introduce novel design challenges. The characteristics of the system data flows and the knowledge of the required wire lengths can be exploited to optimize for speed and power consumption. A component library for flexible construction of interconnection architectures is being developed at the(More)
It is envisioned that future system-on-chip hardware platform designs will be based on reuse of a customizable processor core. Consequently, being able to quickly evaluate the key performance metrics associated with specific points in the design space becomes essential. Development of an early design phase performance estimation method for logic blocks of(More)
Recommended by Markus Rupp We describe a multicore Software-Defined Radio (SDR) architecture for Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver implementation. A GNSS receiver picks up very low power signals from multiple satellites and then uses dedicated processing to demodulate and measure the exact timing of these signals from which the user's(More)
1. Introduction As the non-recurring engineering costs of new technologies continue to rise, the importance of mass production grows. Mask costs in the million-dollar range are intolerable for low-volume products that are not targeted for high-end applications. On the other hand, Field Pro-grammable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are free from such costs, but feature(More)
Software Defined Radio (SDR) is an innovative approach which is becoming a more and more promising technology for future mobile handsets. Several proposals in the field of embedded systems have been introduced by different universities and industries to support SDR applications. This article presents an overview of current platforms and analyzes the related(More)
