FPGAs, GPGPUs and GPPs Find Their Signal Chain Roles
>Gone are the days when signal processing was the realm of dedicated DSP chips. Today, FPGAs, GPGPUs and GPPs all play a role along the signal chain.
IAN SHEARER, MANAGING DIRECTOR VADATECH
Applications such as radar, SIGINT, situational awareness, and sonar applications have specialized requirements for signal processing. The advancements of digitizers, FPGAs, processors, and GPGPUs across the signal processing chain have changed the dynamic for these applications. This transition in performance density puts serious pressure on SWaP-C requirements.
