Dynamically Reconfigurable Computing for Wireless Communication Systems

Heiko Hinkelmann, P. Zipf, Manfred Glesner, Thilo Pionteck


In this paper we will demonstrate that dynamically reconfigurable computing is the key technology to enable small and energy-efficient hardware platforms for wireless communication systems, which provide the flexibility needed for keeping up with evolving standards and protocols. Two application-specific dynamically reconfigurable systems for WLANs and wireless sensor networks will be presented. The first architecture clearly shows that highly dynamic reconfiguration approaches can provide flexible and high-performance hardware platforms that are smaller than standard ASIC solutions. The second architecture serves as a case study for the design of energy-efficient dynamically reconfigurable computing systems.
