The project is about parallel programming a set of 5G and beyond 5G wireless tasks and running them on a 16 core architecture.
- Is a 16 core Epiphany architecture sufficient for the performance requirements of beyond 5G baseband processes?
- How to distribute/map the beyond 5G baseband tasks onto a 16 core embedded processor?
The student will need to
- study the 5G baseband processing algorithms with a literature review
- analyze the performance requirements of the 5G application
- analyze the maximum performance of the architecture
- determine which tasks can/should be run on the Epiphany architecture
- parallelize the algorithms and run on the Epiphany architecture
- evaluate the performance of the architecture and different implementations of the same algorithm
- compare the results to the state-of-the art
