The architecture of future 5G Radio Access Networks will support functional splits where servers offload lowlevelsignal-processing functions (e.g., physical and datalink layer) to accelerators (e.g., FPGAs, GPUs). In this context, the efficient programming of these platforms requires skills in both embedded systems and IT. Design automation approaches for embedded systems ...

A Model Compilation Approach for Optimized Implementations of Signal-Processing Systems onto Multi-Processor Systems-on-Chip

  • Enrici A.
  • Lallet J.
  • Latif I.
  • Pacalet R.

To meet the computational requirements of future 5G networks, the signal-processing functions of baseband stations and user equipments will be accelerated onto programmable, configurable and hard-wired components (e.g., CPUs, FPGAs, hardware accelerators). This urges the need to generate efficient implementations for such mixed architectures. Existing model-based approaches generate executable implementations ...

To meet the computational requirements of future 5G networks, the signal-processing functions of baseband stations will be dynamically accelerated onto both programmable and configurable components (e.g., CPUs, FPGAs). This urges the need to generate efficient implementations for such mixed architectures. Existing model-based approaches generate executable implementations of Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) by ...

Future 5G networks are by design computationally challenging and demanding. These demands can only be met by utilizing mixed architectures, i.e., DSPs and FPGAs. However, utilizing these architectures in a computationally efficient manner is not trivial and design process takes huge amount of time. To overcome this bottleneck of design ...

Accelerated Life Testing of Electronic Devices by Atmospheric Particles: Why and How

  • Frankenthal R.
  • Siconolfi D.
  • Sinclair J.

Research on atmospheric corrosion and degradation of electronic materials and assemblies is usually carried out without considering the potential effects of airborne submicron particles, most of which are potentially corrosive ionic compounds. Yet data show that, in many urban indoor environments, the mass concentration of these particles and their arrival ...
