Abstract [en]

This report presents a time domain correlator (TDC) for the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell BE). The purpose of the report is to evaluate the use of the Cell BE for signal processing in radio sensor networks both on ground and in space. The TDC is implemented using a streaming algorithm that lowers the memory requirements and runs in real time. It is shown that the Cell BE is very suitable for the implemented algorithm and reaching 40% of the theoretical maximum performance in its current form. It is believed that after optimization the application will come very close to the maximum of 204,8 GFLOPS. In the evaluation, it is concluded that the latency reducing design and the high performance of the Cell BE makes it well suited for signal processing.
