  • What we need
    • Adaptive high performance transmission system
    • Great candidate for SDR
next generation wireless 4g
Next Generation Wireless – 4G
  • 3 Major Components to 4G
    • Modulation/Demodulation
    • Multiple-Input Multiple-Out (MIMO)
    • Channel Decoder/Encoders
modulation ofdm
Modulation - OFDM
  • Can be implemented with IFFT/FFT
major component of modulation fft ifft
Major Component of Modulation – FFT/IFFT
  • Very wide data level parallelism
  • Requires complex operations
mimo multiple input multiple out
MIMO (Multiple Input – Multiple Out)
  • Previously we used single antenna systems
  • Now we use multiple antennas to increase the channel capacity
    • Diversity - High Reliability
      • Space Time Block Codes (STBC)
    • Multiplexing – High Throughput
      • Vertical-BLAST (V-BLAST)
  • Requires complex operations
  • Low Data Movement
  • Highly parallelizable
v blast
  • Implementation Based on Square Root Method for V-BLAST
    • Original requires repeated pseudo-inverse calculation for finding the strongest signal
    • This algorithm has reduces complexity
  • Complexity
    • Requires matrix operations on complex numbers
    • Many Matrix Transformations
channel decoding
Channel Decoding
  • 3G Technologies in 4G
    • Viterbi
    • Turbo Decoder
  • New to 4G
    • LDPC
      • Better performance characteristics compared to Turbo and Viterbi
  • Min-Sum Decoding Used
  • Regular LDPC code
  • Can get benefit from Wide SIMD
    • Can do the Bit Node and Check Node
  • Alignment of Check and Bit nodes is a problem
soda pe architecture
SODA PE Architecture
  • SIMD – 32 Wide, 16-bit datapath, Predicate Execution
4g workload on soda
4G Workload on SODA
  • 100 Mbps 4G requires 8Ghz SODA PE
  • 1 Gbps 4G requires 20Ghz SODA PE
sdr challenges in 4g
SDR Challenges In 4G
  • We can’t do any of 4G with technology scaling on one core
    • Would 8GHz cores even be an energy efficient solution?
  • What about 1Gbps?
    • Are we ever going to get a 20GHz core?
  • Cannot rely on technology scaling to give us 4G for free
    • 4G SDR will require algorithmic and architectural innovations
4g algorithm architectural co design
4G Algorithm-Architectural Co-design
  • Architectural improvements (SODA II)
    • Specialized functional units
      • CISC-like complex arithmetic operations
    • Specialized data movement hardware
      • Less strain on the memory system
    • Wider SIMD
      • How wide can we go?
    • More PEs
      • What does the interconnect look like?
  • Algorithmic optimization through parallelization
    • Reduce intra-kernel communication
    • Reduce memory accesses
    • Arithmetic is much cheaper than data movement
  • Questions?
successive cancelling for v blast
Successive Cancelling for V-BLAST
  • V-BLAST successive interference cancelling (SIC)
  • The ith ZF-nulling vector wi is defined as the unique minimum-norm vector satisfying
    • Orthogonal to the subspace spanned by the contributions to yi due to the symbols not yet estimated and cancelled and is given by the ith row of
alamouti scheme
Alamouti Scheme
  • Assumption: the channel remains unchanged over two consecutive symbols
    • Rate = 1
    • Diversity order = 2
  • Simple decoding

Advantages of Software Defined Radio
  • Multi-mode operations
  • Lower costs
    • Faster time to market
    • Prototyping and bug fixes
    • Chip volumes
    • Longevity of platforms
  • Enables future wireless communication innovations
    • Cognitive radio
