I believe Junaid is referring to a GSoC project to expand the
abilities of GNU Radio. Systems that allow coprocessor a definitely
but they aren’t widely used and efficiently using a coprocessor with GNU
Radio isn’t exactly out of the box functionality.
What you might do for such a GSoC project depends on your interests and
abilities. It’s likely that if you wanted to make accelerators the first
step would be some form of profiling to figure out candidate blocks or
functions. OTOH maybe you’ve seen in some paper or your own experience a
good candidate for coprocessor off loading.
I think there’s also interest in enabling blocks to handle their own
buffers to allow DMA, but someone else should be able to discuss that
better than anything I might add at the moment.
PS- if you’re going to discuss a GSoC project please mention that so
there’s no confusion about the subject. If this isn’t about GSoC then I
apologize for modifying the subject line.
