The project is about parallel programming a set of 5G and beyond 5G wireless tasks and running them on a 16 core architecture.

Research questions:

  • 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
