Overview

The solution from Creonic for data rates of up to 1 Gbit/s offers outstanding efficiency in terms of implemen- tation complexity. Area and energy efficiency played a decisive role during the LDPC code design process. With this unified approach not only outstanding efficiency is obtained, but also excellent error correction performance, outperforming Viterbi decoders by up to 3 dB. At the same time, a throughput of hundreds of Mbit/s can be achieved even on low-cost FPGAs.

Features

  • -compliant with Multiband OFDM Physical Layer Specification, PHY Specification: Final Deliverable 1.5, August 11, 2009
  • -support for all LDPC codes (approximate channel coding rates 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 4/5)

Device Utilization and Performance

-support for short and long blocks (1,200 and 1,320 bits)
