A DSP architecture optimized for wireless baseband

  title={A DSP architecture optimized for wireless baseband},
  author={Chris Rowen and Peter Nuth and Stuart Fiske},
  journal={2009 International Symposium on System-on-Chip},
The high computation demands of next generation cellular and broadcast wireless require both higher efficiency and greater flexibility in baseband processing. This paper introduces a new DSP architecture optimized for baseband applications, especially applications with heavy workload of complex filtering, FFT and MIMO matrix operations such as LTE. The Tensilica ConnX Baseband Engine processor core implements a 3-issue VLIW, 8-way SIMD architecture. It can perform 16 multiply-add operations per… CONTINUE READING
