4i2i Communications has optimised its Viterbi and Reed-Solomon encoder and decoder IP cores for use with Actel's ProASIC Plus, Axcelerator, SX-A and RTSX-S FPGAs

The latest partner to join the Actel CompanionCore Alliance programme, 4i2i Communications has optimised its Viterbi and Reed-Solomon encoder and decoder IP cores for use with Actel's nonvolatile, single-chip ProASIC Plus, Axcelerator, SX-A and RTSX-S FPGAs. 4i2i has also optimised its JPEG encoders and decoders for Actel's high-performance Axcelerator device family.

With the extension of Actel's digital signal processing (DSP) IP offerings, customers have access to a breadth of cost-effective, parameterisable FPGA-based building blocks to accelerate the design and development of existing and future DSP, multimedia and error correction applications.

Consisting of a convolutional encoder and Viterbi decoder, the Viterbi IP core supports error correction for both burst mode and continuous data input.

The core offers user-configurable parameters, including selectable code rates and interface widths, optional pseudo-BER calculation and in-phase detection.

The Reed-Solomon encoder and decoder IP cores offer full-duplex encoding and decoding.

The cores are also compatible with a variety of international telecommunication standards, including CCSDS, DECT, ADSL and xDSL.

Offering full ISO10918 standard compatibility, the JPEG encoder and decoder cores provide baseline JPEG compression capabilities, including up to 4080 x 4080 image resolution support and processing of up to 30 CIF frames per second.

The Viterbi, Reed-Solomon and JPEG cores are available as encoder-only, decoder-only and encoder and decoder configurations.

Licences for the Viterbi, Reed-Solomon and JPEG encoder and decoder cores optimised for Actel's FPGAs are available now from 4i2i in either synthesisable RTL or Actel-targeted netlist formats.

Prices start at $2500 for a single-use netlist licence.
