Sora


#1

One of my professors passed this on to me today and I was wondering if
anyone else was aware of Sora. Here is a link to the pdf:

Just a very brief glance at it showed at least one mistake in their
comments about GNU Radio; I’ll give it a more thorough read when I get
a chance.

The most interesting part is IMHO the hardware. The comments on GNU
Radio are
misinformed (they are not able to differentiate between USRP and GNU
Radio
…), and using SIMD for software radio, well, I think I have seen that
before
somewhere else … :wink:

Nevertheless, they have achieved quite something when implementing
802.11 on
the host …

I’m not a MAC/PHY guy, but the insight they use of substituting LUTs for
real algorithmic modulators seems to be
a keen way to trade CPU cycles for memory. If they haven’t already
patented that (note that M$ was involved), then
I think it would be a fine thing to perform some flattery :slight_smile:

The PCIe-x8 interface sounds kind of yummy as well. The other
stuff–well, rather ordinary.

SIMD Gnu Radio has this
Multi-core ready Gnu Radio has this

Next?
