Nas MSc Mapping an LTE Baseband Receiver on a Multi-Core Architecture Master Thesis Abstract New standards for mobile phones have arrived and these must be analyzed in order to make integrated hardware the first time right. Creating the hardware platform and software on a semiconductor is prohibitively expensive and time-consuming. Rather, the method is intended to explore the design before the real implementation is created. Mobile phone users desire to access to the Internet, allowing the searching of information, communicating with others using e-mail, but also chatting, listening to Internet radio and watching movies and television from any location in the world. The new cellular standards, like LTE and LTE-Advanced, provide the higher data rates to make these applications possible. A multi-core is required to provide the required computational power for implementing the new standards. Software has been developed that simulates multiprocessor hardware. It allows different software models to be mapped onto the hardware. This will be done during compile-time or run-time. The goal is to analyze the energy consumption for different mappings and hardware architectures.
