Other extreme: go “Primitive” (Cheaper but deadlines!) o Use only adders, multipliers, etc. o Provide “higher” functionality by multiple calls of simpler modules. There may be other choices Intermediate granularity (e.g. in NoC, SoC etc.) Formalization at an intermediate granularity Our aim is to find the best trade-off between: “Performance and Cost”

We propose “Parameterization technique should be considered as a method that searches for and finds all the commonalities inside single/between several different standards in order to optimize, the resources during equipment’s implementation and/or execution phases.”
11 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES Parametrisation Techniques for SDR Parametrisation : A promising technique of designing radio systems entities Takes advantages of the programmable or at least reconfigurable capabilities An optimal sharing between hardware and software resources. Parametrisation Techniques can be divided into : 1. Common Function Technique 2. Common Operators’ Technique Sufi Tabassum GUL- SUPELEC – 29 th Oct. 2009 12 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES Common Function Technique CF technique : function sharing among different standards [1].

Tuttlebee, Software Defined Radio: Enabling Technologies. John Wiley & Sons Ltd. UK, 2002. Details about chapter 8 to be added
13 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES Common Function Technique Some conclusions about CF : As stated in [2], CF is not sufficient because CF technique depends highly upon the selected standards. The evolution to new standards must require the addition of the distinct components of each function in the associated CF. As a consequence, the CF should be redefined and redesigned to be capable to meet the requirements of the advanced standards. Due to standards’ dependency, our feeling is that the CF technique is not flexible enough for SDR applications. [2]. Arnd Rhemiere Details to be added Sufi Tabassum GUL- SUPELEC – 29 th Oct. 2009 14 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES Common Operator Technique Common operator technique : identification of common elements based on structural aspects. CO Performs operations without knowing their application. CO is independent of implementation of a terminal. CO is to be considered as an Open Technique [3]. CO can be called and re-called by distinct functions several times all along the terminal. [3]. L. Alaus, J. Palicot, C. Roland, Y. Louët, and D.

In order to attain the best cost-performance trade-off Identify some level of granularity CO technique consists in increasing the granularity of the basic primitive levels elements to address in an SDR.
17 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES Common Operator Technique A trade-off could be proposed between CF and CO, with the following rules: 1. A CF can call (one or several) functions, 2. A CF can use (one or several) operators, 3. A CO cannot call a function.

Pragmatic approach (PA) or o The initial approach developed to identify or create possible COs and follows two stages: – Existing Search & – Constructive Search 2. Theoretical approach (TA) o An attempt to formalize SDR design. o It consists in moving the classical breaking down of Figure. 4 into a graphical approach. o Applies optimization process in order to find the most relevant COs (or their combination) present in the graph derived. o The optimisation process related to the TA is performed by a specific cost function to be minimized.
19 IETR - INSTITUT D’ÉLECTRONIQUE ET DE TÉLÉCOMMUNICATIONS DE RENNES The Theoretical Approach Our vision of the parameterization: “The parameterization techniques are the means to find the optimal path in the tree derived from Figure 2. Here we are considering a global optimality” Three challenges arise: 1. The definition of the graph 2. The definition of cost parameters, finding costs and development of the cost function 3.

FFT/Butterfly[3], DMFFT[4] and LFSR[5] are strong candidates for common operators as they can be used in the implementation of numerous important tasks of a communication transceiver, e.g. filtering, equalization, channelization, OFDM (de)modulation, convolutional coding, scrambling, etc. [3].
