Foundations for Design and Implementation of Software Radio Platforms
Software radio promises substantial benefits to real-world systems by making them more flexible, interoperable, and easily upgradeable. While software radio systems have received considerable attention, many of the design methods in use today are ad hoc. We are developing a principled approach that works from models of computation through automated hardware/software synthesis down to architecture-related cost models. Since software radio applications center around manipulating various forms of signals, our approach emphasizes new models and methods for efficient, reliable signal processing.
