|Athena Group Delivers Powerful 3GPP LTE Multi Radix FFT Processor Core |
February 15, 2010 -- The Athena Group, Inc. has announced the general availability of its multi-radix FFT core for LTE and other OFDM-based wireless communications. The PFFT-M for LTE delivers the throughput needed for basestation LTE downlink OFDMA as well as the flexibility to handle the complexity of LTE uplink SC-FDMA in a single core.
The pipelined design supports radices 2, 3, 4, and 5, and transforms from 12-points to 8,192-points. All defined LTE transform lengths are supported, as are numerous other lengths including 1,536-points and powers of 2 up to 8,192-points. Most importantly, the pipelined LTE FFT is available at frequencies up to 500MHz in less than 250,000 ASIC gates, or as an FPGA-optimized implementation. Each design kit offers a bit accurate C model, an RTL simulation model and testbenches, synthesizable RTL, and a targeted netlist optimized for your process, library, and clock frequency. Athena employs a streamlined purchasing process, with standard license agreements, multiple licensing options, and automated IP production and verification to enable near-instantaneous delivery.
