In this article we cover:
- Offloading the processing being done on the CPU onto an FPGA (Xilinx Virtex-6
- A step-by-step example of implementing a Digital Up-Converter (DUC) inside the FPGA.
- Using a model-based design environment, including Simulink and Xilinx System Generator for DSP, to accelerate the entire process.
- Actual results of the FPGA port running on Nutaq’s hardware (Perseus 601X with Radio 420X card).
