Much has been made of virtualization in commercial infrastructure, as well as mobile devices where applications are completely virtualized from the perspective of the user. This is highly convenient to users, but also results in benefits to the manufacturers such as upgradability for extended product lifetimes, support for new features and applications after deployment, economies of scale, and lower development costs. Until now, however, this virtualization could not be extended to high performance signal processing tasks or applications, such as an LTE PHY, computational imaging or video codecs. These signal processing applications required specialized hardware and hardware accelerators that were proprietary and lacked upgradability and flexibility. Coherent Logix’s HyperX™ processors are changing this landscape by bringing complete software flexibility to signal processing. Optimized for wireless, imaging and video signal processing, the HyperX processor enables signal processing applications and algorithms to be written and executed completely in C without the need for hardware accelerators.
