Implementing a GNU Radio/LiteX accelerator using a FPGA-based PCIe co-processor

Processing tools such as RFNoC by Ettus Research allow for FPGA processing & acceleration however, this can only be used achieved by using USRP devices. gr-litex is an open-source tool that uses GNU Radio with LiteX and allows for different boards by a variety of vendors to achieve processing and acceleration. The project currently uses an Acorn CLE-215+, a cryptocurrency mining accelerator card repurposed as an FPGA for the project.
