We present PULPO, a floating-point baseband-processing accelerator for massive multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) basestations (BSs). PULPO accelerates matrix-vector products, not only with a matrix but also with its Hermitian, as well as affine transforms and nonlinear projections used in iterative algorithms that outclass traditional linear methods in various applications. PULPO is integrated in a system-on-chip (SoC) with a tight integration to the system's data memory, facilitating data exchange and co-operation with 8 RISC-V cores. The fabricated accelerator achieves comparable efficiency as recently-proposed fixed-point baseband processors, while eliminating the burdens associated with fixed-point design, thus simplifying massive MU-MIMO BS development.

Abstract

We present PULPO, a floating-point baseband-processing accelerator for massive multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) basestations (BSs). PULPO accelerates matrix-vector products, not only with a matrix but also with its Hermitian, as well as affine transforms and nonlinear projections used in iterative algorithms that outclass traditional linear methods in various applications. PULPO is integrated in a system-on-chip (SoC) with a tight integration to the system's data memory, facilitating data exchange and co-operation with 8 RISC-V cores. The fabricated accelerator achieves comparable efficiency as recently-proposed fixed-point baseband processors, while eliminating the burdens associated with fixed-point design, thus simplifying massive MU-MIMO BS development.
