Technologies used in wireless broadband systems are typically data-driven and require a very high processing speed. In this article we discuss technological issues that could be utilized in designing converged hardware/software platforms for future radio technologies in both civilian and military communications. We focus on current and future radio applications as well as hardware and software technologies, and discuss issues in integrating these technologies into converged single-processor radio platforms that can switch dynamically from one radio standard to another with intelligent application software, and that can also be taken advantage of as parts of complex systems and networks-on-chips.
