SocLib Components General Index


1) Functional Description

This VCI target corresponds to a IEEE802.16e LDPC encoder. It embeds an internal hardware Cycle Accurate Bit Accurate model of the TurboConcept's IEEE802.16e WiMAX LDPC encoder tc4200_enc.

TurboConcept's TC4200-WiMAX? Core is the corresponding decoder. It is a high speed Low Density Parity Check code (LDPC) decoder optimized for WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) specifications. A patented decoding architecture allows meeting high throughputs within small devices, and still offering close-to-ideal Bit Error Rate (BER) performances.

Figure 1 - Tc4200_enc

Figure 1 presents the general core structure. The Tc4200_enc is made of a VCI wrapper and an internal hardware decoder model which communicates using proprietary FIFO-like protocols.

5) Limitation

No limitation applies to this model.

6) License

The VCI wrapper is licensed under the SoCLib, GNU LGPLv2.1 license.

The VCI wrapper instantiates an internal hardware encoder. This internal hardware decoder is licensed under BSD-like license.

This internal hardware decoder is distributed in a binary form.

7) RTL model

Please contact TurboConcept for information about purchasing a fully functional RTL model of the internal hardware encoder.
