14.3.17. Parallel Pipelined FFT (PFFT_Pipe)

The PFFT_Pipe block implements a supersampled FFT (or IFFT) that processes 2M points per cycle (with 0 < M).

The PFFT_Pipe block uses a pipeline of (small) fully-parallel FFTs, twiddle, and transpose blocks. This FFT uses only a small number of DSP blocks but has a relative high latency (and associated memory usage).

Not all parameters are available with all blocks.

Table 136.  Parameters for the PFFT_Pipe Blocks
Parameter Description
iFFT true to implement an IFFT otherwise false.
N Log2 of the number of points in the FFT.
Bit-reversed input true if you expect bit-reversed input, otherwise false. .
Number of spatial bits M for 2M wires.
Twiddle/pruning specification( -.
Use faithful rounding true if the block uses faithful (rather than correct) rounding for floating-point operations. Fixed-point FFTs ignore this parameter.
