4.1.1. 5G LDPC-V Transmitter Signals
|clk||Input||Clock. All signals are synchronous to clk.|
|rstn||Input||Reset, active-low. Assert for at least for 10 clock cycles.|
Aligns with i_sink_cb_sop
 is base graph (BG) (1 bit), where: 0:BG1, 1:BG2
[6:1] is Zc_idx (6 bits)
BG is the index of the lifting factor Zc. Choose Zc from Table 5.3.2-1 of TS 38.212. Look up the index of Zc in Lifting Factor Index table.
 is use_crc (1 bit), where 0: not use code block CRC; 1: use code block CRC (CRC24B).
[17:8] is the number of null bits (10 bits). Plug in the value of K-K’, where K=22Zc(BG1) or 10Zc(BG2). Check the definition of K and K’ in 5.2.2 in TS 38.212.
[20:18] is the code rate index (3 bits). The Code Rate table shows the code rate choices supported by the LDPC encoder and decoder IP. The code rate is not target code rate.
[23:21] is Qm_idx (3 bits):
[44:24] is E (21 bits), output length of the rate matcher, or equivalently, input length of the derate matcher.
[59:45] is k0 position (15 bits). Calculate k0 based on Table 18.104.22.168-2 of TS 38.212.
[74:60] is limited circular buffer size.
32 message bits.
Total number of input bits is K’ if CRC is not used; K’-24 if CRC is used
Qualifies the i_sink_data signal
When i_sink_valid is not asserted, the IP stops processing input until i_sink_valid signal is reasserted. Assert when o_sink_ready is asserted.
Indicates the start of an incoming packet
You cannot have two valid SOPs in any five consecutive clock cycles
|i_sink_cb_eop||Input||Indicates the end of an incoming packet|
|i_source_ready||Input||Assert this signal to inform the transmitter that the downstream is ready to take transmitter outputs. The downstream should have readyAllowance of up to 30 clock cycles. The transmitter can produce up to 30 cycles of valid data after i_source_ready is deasserted.|
Indicates that the receiver is ready to receive data in the next clock cycle. Ignore when rst is asserted.
The IP can backpressure incoming data by deasserting this signal. When o_sink_ready==0 is observed, deassert i_sink_valid in the next clock cycle.
32 output bits from rate matcher
Total number of output bits is E.
|o_source_valid||Output||The transmitter asserts this signal when o_source_data holds valid data.|
|o_source_cb_sop||Output||The transmitter asserts this signal to mark the start of a packet.|
|o_source_cb_eop||Output||The transmitter asserts this signal to mark the end of a packet|
