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).
