Looking forward, the computation requirements of mobile devices will increase by one to two orders of magnitude, but their power requirements will remain stringent to ensure reasonable battery lifetimes. Scaling existing approaches won't suffice; instead, the hardware's inherent computational efficiency, programmability, and adaptability must change. AnySP, a fully programmable architecture that targets multiple application domains, addresses these challenges for next-generation mobile signal processing.
