On Designing a 5G MPSoC
The huge diversity of 5G application requirements and associated modem protocols impose high demands on radio platforms in terms of scalable latency, reliability, and computing. The solution is a scalable MPSoC solution that can handle a plurality of parallel sliced links. It has a core manager and a network-on-chip manager to schedule, prioritize, as well as supervise the current computations. This includes the required reliability control. Moreover, keeping the locality of data and programs under control to adhere to the required latency and low-energy constraints. Ideas sketched can form the basis to derive solutions that enable efficient low-power realizations.
Gerhard Fettweis earned his Ph.D. under H. Meyr's supervision from RWTH Aachen in 1990. After one year at IBM Research in San Jose, CA he moved to TCSI Inc., Berkeley, CA. Since 1994 he is Vodafone Chair Professor at TU Dresden, Germany, with currently 20 companies from Asia/Europe/US sponsoring his research on wireless transmission and chip design. He coordinates 2 DFG centers at TU Dresden, cfAED and HAEC. Gerhard is IEEE Fellow, member of acatech, has an honorary doctorate from TU Tampere, and has received multiple awards. In Dresden he has spun-out ten startups, and setup funded projects of more than EUR 1/3 billion volume. He has helped organizing IEEE conferences, most notably as TPC Chair of IEEE ICC 2009, IEEE TTM 2012, and General Chair of VTC Spring 2013. He remains active within IEEE.
