Generated DSP Cores for Implementation of an OFDM Communication System
Application tailored signal processors fill the gap between ASICs and general purpose DSPs. Single Instruction Multiple Data(SIMD) Signal Processors offer high computational power with low control overhead. This paper describes the development of a multi-processor OFDM-System x using automatically generated SIMD-DSP Cores. The focus of this case of study was the test of our integrated design flow which is based on our core generation tool. We show how with our design methodology we reduce the design cycle in comparsion with other HW/SW Co-design tools and traditional design flows.
