An overview of reconfigurable VLSI based signal processing building blocks for next generation wireless devices
The introduction of advanced features in mobile communications services requires improvements upon current hardware design and verification methods. The implementation of higher bandwidth features such as streaming video, on-demand video conferencing, etc. dictates that the wireless hardware used in the eventual deployment of next generation (fourth generation or 4G) wireless devices must evolve significantly to provide the expected quality of service (QoS) while minimizing device size and power consumption. This paper outlines the potential digital building blocks of an advanced wireless communication system, incorporating reconfigurable logic principles, suitable for consideration in the development of next generation wireless systems.
