Digital Communications

VSORA meets the challenge with a development platform that allows you to select DSP-Cores with different sizes.
Our approach offers better system power control and silicon area optimization

Digital Communications

Digital Communications (incl 5G)

The 5G NR market is driving the processing power and flexibility requirements of the digital communications system to an entirely new level. Based on individually configurable single and multicores, with user-definable number of ALUs per core the VSORA architecture has been specifically designed to fulfil these new requirements. The flexibility of the solution makes it standard agnostic, so 4G, 5G and WLAN, including Wi-Fi 6, can easily be implemented using the same hardware.

Highlights

High processing power

High processing power eliminates the need for specific coprocessors and hardware accelerators and ensures greater flexibility.

Customizable hardware

Customizable hardware with a configurable number of ALUs per core and unlimited number of cores.

Optimal algorithm mapping

Optimally maps algorithms, including non-parallel algorithms.

User defined quantization

Floating point precision can be user specified to optimize the system.

Automatic interconnect handling

Automatic handling of the interconnect between the different cores.

Low power

Lower energy consumption / power constraints.

High efficiency

  • Signals handled in hardware.
  • Signal memory bandwidth scales with MPU processing power.
  • Multi-instructions per cycle / rich set of instructions.

Able to handle higher processing requirements

Higher processing power to handle MiMo, beamforming and carrier aggregation requirements.

Futureproof

Futureproof should standards evolve.

Algorithms mapped to different cores

Easy mapping of algorithms to different cores.

Easy system programming

Compilation platform separates codes running in the different cores.

Platform independent design flow

High-level, platform independent design flow (C++/Matlab-like).

Optimized silicon area

Silicon area optimized to required processing power.
