The increasing number of wireless communication standards creates new demands for their platform architectures. In addition to fulfilling high data rate, low cost and low power consumption requirements, they also need to be flexible enough to support multiple standards in a multimode radio system. Traditional Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) cannot provide the target performance for wireless systems. On the other hand, Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) are the favorite solution for wireless systems. ASIC are fast and consume low power, but they are vulnerable to changes. Even changing small features in ASICs requires repeating most of the design and fabrication process, which is expensive and increases the time to market for these systems. The future growth and development of System on Chip (SOC) technologies for wireless communication systems relies on the longer life cycle of new products. The current approach of integrating ASIC solutions is not economically attractive for the new generation of SOC chips, because of all the nonrecurring expenses (NRE) such as mask, engineering, validation, and the shorter life cycle of the product
Demands for programmability as well as power and performance have made reconfigurable architectures an attractive alternative solution for wireless systems platforms. In this thesis we introduce HERS, a Heterogeneous Reconfigurable System as a platform for wireless communication systems. HERS is a set of reconfigurable engines connected through a general high speed bus. Each reconfigurable engine is a specialized reconfigurable architecture for a category of similar algorithms. As each family of algorithms has a limited set of flexibility requirements, their reconfigurable engine platforms can be highly optimized for power and performance. HERS is an optimal solution in terms of power, programmability and performance
