Adaptation of The ePUMA DSP Platform for Coarse Grain Configurability
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Configurable devices have become more and more popularnowadays. This is because they can improve the system performance inmany ways. In this thesis work it is studied how introduction of coarse grain configurability can improve the ePUMA, the low power highspeed DSP platform, in terms ofperformance and power consumption. This study takes two DSP algorithms, Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and FIR filtering asbenchmarks to study the effect of this new feature. Architectures are presented for calculation of FFT and FIR filters and it is shown how they can contribute to the system performance. Finally it is suggestedto consider coarse grain configurability as an option for improvement of the system.
