Projects Done

Project 1

Title: Development of Bluetooth Baseband controller

Bluetooth is a short-range wireless protocol operating in the ISM frequency band (2.4 Ghz) intended to replace the cable(s) connecting portable and/or fixed electronic devices. The transceiver utilizes frequency hoping to reduce interference and fading. A typical Bluetooth device has a range of about 10 meters. The communication channel can support both data (asynchronous) and voice (synchronous) communications .Its key features are robustness, low complexity, low power and low cost. We were implementing the baseband specification in hardware using VHDL in the form of Bluetooth Baseband Controller.

Role: As a Team member, my contribution to the project was in the high level and detailed design of the sub blocks like CRC, FEC & HEC of both transmitter & receiver. The work involved translating the RTL specs to High–Level Design and finally coding in VHDL.

Duration: 3 months (for HCL Technologies, Noida)

Project 2

Title: Distributed Arithmetic FIR Filter Soft core.

Digital filters are widely used in processing digital signals of many diverse applications, including speech processing and data communications, image and video processing etc., FIR filter is one of those digital filter in which the impulse response h (n) is non-zero for only a finite number of samples. Distributed arithmetic is a computation algorithm that performs multiplication with look –up table-based schemes. DA specifically targets the sum of products (vector dot product) computation that covers many of the important DSP filtering and frequency transforming functions.

Role: As a Team member, my contribution to the project was in defining the specs, identifying the right method for computing, freezing the technique for computing impulse response and finally coding in VHDL and to implement the design into the target FPGA.

Duration: 3 months (for HCL Technologies, Noida)

Project 3:

Title :
Building a PSP (Processor Support Package) for DSP16T11 digital signal processor from LG using CowareN2C Design and methodology

Coware N2C Design system is an environment for Intellectual Property (I.P) reuse and hardware/software co-design. It supports common h/w and s/w compilers and simulators, allows for parallel hardware/software co-specification, multilevel hardware/software co-simulation and hardware/software co-implementation. This Coware tool and methodology is mainly meant for System-On-Chip (S.O.C) designs.

The PSP consists of ISP, BSP, and SSP.

The ISP (Instruction set Support Package) is the processor model for use in Coware environment.

The SSP (Software Support Package) consists of the SW architecture associated with the core (Boot code, OS libraries, linker script, startup code)

The BSP (Bus Support Package) is the HW flexible/configurable architecture associated with the core. The BSP contains (Bridges, Scenarios for connecting to user HW, peripherals)

DSP16T11 is a 16-bit fixed-point digital signal processor. This is based on an advanced modified Harvard architecture that has one program memory bus and three data memory bus. It provides an ALU that has a high degree of parallelism, application specific hardware logic, and additional peripherals. DSP16T11 can be used as an ASIC library element in variety of DSP applications.

Duration: 3 months (Coware Inc, USA .1 month onsite and 2 months offshore)

Project 4:

Title :
AMBA subsystem

The Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture (AMBA) specification defines an onchip communications standard for designing high-performance embedded microcontrollers.
Three distinct buses are defined within the AMBA specification:
• The Advanced High-performance Bus (AHB)
• The Advanced System Bus (ASB)
• The Advanced Peripheral Bus (APB).

My Role:

As a Team member, my contribution to the project was in the high level and detailed design of the blocks like the Arbiter, Address decoders and multiplexors in AMBA AHB. The work involved translating the RTL specs to High–Level Design and finally coding in VHDL.The job also involved unit level testing of the slave device. Behavior modeling of AHB and APB bus monitor to continuously monitor all the signals and to report any violations as per AMBA spec.

Duration: (15’th Dec 2001 to May 2002)

Project 5:

Title: N1-SGI-ATPG (Current Project)

Conversion of existing "NEWT" RTL/netlist of N1 to equivalent ATPG ready Verilog netlist. The Verilog netlist will be used for fault grading and generating the ATPG vectors. The aim is to achieve reasonable fault coverage.

My Role:

As a team member, my role to the project is to convert “NEWT” (proprietary language of the client) to equivalent Verilog netlist and to generate ATPG vectors to achieve high fault coverage. The job also includes writing perl scripts for atomizing some of the processes.
