Abstract / Description of output

As wireless communication standards evolve, Wi-Fi and WCDMA based 3G UMTS are still the major technologies widely deployed to provide high speed wireless internet access and mobile communication services. Therefore, the
integration of these two protocols onto a single SDR platform is a major research task. In this paper we propose a flexible SDR platform targeting the above standards. Our SDR platform is based on a recently developed novel
Reconfigurable Instruction Cell Array (RICA) along with an ARM controller. We describe the proposed platform architecture, the associated software design flow, and the mapping methodology. The simulation results demonstrate that our architecture is able to meet the typical throughput requirement of these two protocols while run at a lower core power consumption compared to other architectures.
