Optimization of Digital Wireless Transceiver Embedded System Built on Xilinx FPGA

Abstract

FPGA is becoming the most popular technology for developing new wireless systems. It makes design flow easier to realize even in a small company or academic institution with limited resources (human and/or budget). But when system is ready to enter production stage some drawbacks may stop its further progress. A short description of the wireless transceiver project for mobile vehicles is presented. Drawbacks are highlighted. The most critical of them, that reduces market attractiveness, is cost. To reduce cost a decision has been made to replace expensive Virtex4 by cheaper Spartan3 FPGA. This required making some changes in architecture. But the most part of previously created software and firmware were reused in new design.
