Summary: 
In this paper we propose a new reconfigurable signal processing platform for SDR, having capability to change its processing parameters dynamically. On our proposed platform, while the wiring and processing scheme remain fixed, processing parameters and connections between processing modules together with the associated dataflow can be changed. We also demonstrate that our proposed signal processing platform has the new ability of easily composing new signal processing models dynamically, simultaneously with other tasks, and attaining high efficiency of logic usage.
