Energy Efficient Architecture Using Hardware Acceleration for Software Defined Radio Components

In order to make cognitive radio systems a practical technology to be deployed in real-world scenarios, the core Software Defined Radio (SDR) systems must meet the stringent requirements of the target application, especially in terms of performance and energy consumption for mobile platforms. In this paper, the authors present a feasibility study of hardware acceleration as an energy-efficient implementation for SDR. They identified the amplifier function from the Software Communication Architecture (SCA) for hardware acceleration since it is one of the functions called for most frequently and it requires intensive floating-point computation.
