Real-time software defined radio algorithms

Future 5G wireless communication systems target a peak data rate of 10GBit/s with a latency of 1ms, enabling wireless communication links for connected autonomous vehicles or flexible production environments. 5G massive multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) systems with new non-orthogonal waveforms demand new signal processing algorithms to reduce both, computational complexity and energy requirements. We investigate and prototype novel approaches based on big data algorithms for high speed processing on field programmable gate arrays (FPGA).
