Gaining Flexibility and Performance of Computing Using Application-Specific Instructions and Reconfigurable Architecture 1

By Tian Hangpei, Gao Deyuan and Zhu Yian


As data transfer rates become higher, general processor is not competent for works with high computing intensity in wireless communication area. The other hand, existing baseband processors lack adaptive ability to support new applications and newer versions of existing application. Thus the paper puts forward a novel architecture of reconfigurable stream processor along with application-specific instruction set for software radio. The main goal of the processor is to point out an effective way to designing hardware of software radio with high computational performance and adaptive ability. We achieve this by analyzing multistream modalities of advanced wireless communication standards, such as 3G and WLAN. Simulation results show that the processor with powerful calculation capability can adapt to applications of wireless communication area easily. 1
