The processing needed is essentially FFT. Many IP cores exists for this, either for a custom IC or an FPGA, which are equipped with lots of Multiply-Accumulate (MAC) building blocks.

It would be interesting to know if any FPGAs are being used for some of the complex processing required for this application. The FPGA companies make it sound like this is an ideal application for their DSP blocks. What is under the hood?
