VSORA was founded in 2015 to develop DSP IP for chipmakers digital communications systems, such as 5G.
The 3GPP Release 15 of the 5G system architecture, finalized in June 2018, provides the set of features and functionality needed for deploying a commercially operational 5G system. The demonstration has shown that VSORA’s development suite provided an optimized DSP architecture, able to support the concurrent reception of representative 5G quality-of-service regimes covering extreme broadband, narrowband Internet of Things and ultra-low latency systems.
VSORA CEO Khaled Maalej said that the DSP development flow allows signal-processing engineers to evaluate different implementations of their algorithms for cost, processing power, arithmetic precision and power consumption, well before the physical implementation.
"The approach proposed by VSORA is also flexible in the sense that the DSP can fulfil the requirements of the standard evolution, e.g. Releases 16 and 17, without redesigning a complete architecture," said Benoit Miscopein, head of Leti’s wireless broadband systems lab.
