In this thesis a system-on-chip (SoC) for the cellular internet of things (IoT) is designed. The SoC is based on the Evolved EDGE standard, which allows data rates up to 592 kbps over a single 200 kHz GSM carrier. Evolved EDGE is known for requiring complex interference cancellation algorithms in the digital baseband, which is unfeasible for small IoT devices with years of battery life. In this work the entire digital baseband signal processing is implemented in a dedicated VLSI architecture by using agile algorithm-driven hardware design. The resulting SoC achieves Evolved EDGE data rates while showing very low power consumption and three times smaller circuit area than prior art.


About the Author:


Harald Kröll was born in South Tyrol in 1984. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in information and computer engineering (summa cum laude) from Graz University of Technology in Austria, in 2010. Since 2010 he was working as a research assistant at the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS) at ETH Zurich, where he was performing research in the field of digital baseband signal processing algorithms and architectures for cellular communication systems. His research activities are focused on low-complexity signal processing and VLSI implementations for the cellular Internet of Things (IoT), which enable tiny devices which show very low power consumption.
