Digital communications including 5G solutions

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.

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.

Highlights

  • High processing power eliminates the need for specific coprocessors and hardware accelerators and ensures greater flexibility.
  • Customizable hardware with a configurable number of ALUs per core and unlimited number of cores.
  • Futureproof should standards evolve.
  • Higher processing power to handle MiMo, beamforming and carrier aggregation requirements.
  • Floating point precision can be user specified to optimize the system.
  • High-level, platform independent design flow (C++/Matlab-like).
  • Optimally maps algorithms, including non-parallel algorithms.
  • Easy mapping of algorithms to different cores.
  • Automatic handling of the interconnect between the different cores.
  • Compilation platform separates codes running in the different cores.
  • 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.
  • Silicon area optimized to required processing power.
