A Novel Reconfigurable Architecture of a DSP Processor for Efficient Mapping of DSP Functions using Field Programmable DSP Arrays

Development of modern integrated circuit technologies makes it feasible to develop cheaper, faster and smaller special purpose signal processing function circuits. Digital signal processing functions are generally implemented either on ASICs with inflexibility, or on FPGAs with bottlenecks of relatively smaller utilization factor or lower speed compared to ASIC. Field Programmable DSP Array (FPDA) is the proposed DSP dedicated device, redolent to FPGA, but with basic fixed Common Modules (CMs) (like adders, subtractors, multipliers, scaling units, shifters) instead of CLBs.
