In order to solve the challenges in processor design for the next generation wireless communication systems, this paper first proposes a system level design flow for communication domain specific processor, and then proposes a novel processor architecture for the next generation wireless communication named GAEA using this design flow. GAEA is a shared memory multi-core SoC based on Software Controlled Time Division Multiplexing Bus, with which programmers can easily explore memory-level parallelism of applications by proper instructions and scheduling algorithms. MPE, which is the kernel component of GAEA, adopts hybrid parallel processing scheme to explore instruction-level and data-level parallelism.
