Design and Implementation of Digital Signal Processing Hardware for a Software Radio Reciever

by Talbot, Jake

Abstract (Summary)
This pro ject summarizes the design and implementation of ?eld programmable gate array (FPGA) based digital signal processing (DSP) hardware meant to be used in a software radio system. The ?lters and processing were ?rst designed in MATLAB and then implemented using very high speed integrated circuit hardware description language (VHDL). Since this hardware is meant for a software radio system, making the hardware ?exible was the main design goal. Flexibility in the FPGA design was reached using VHDL generics and generate for loops. The hardware was veri?ed using MATLAB generated signals as stimulus to the VHDL design and comparing the VHDL output with the corresponding MATLAB calculated signal. Using this veri?cation method, the VHDL design was veri?ed post place and route (PAR) on several di?erent Virtex family FPGAs.
