RF Engines (RFEL) has released details of its first product in its vectis family of multi-radix-architecture pipelined complex FFT cores.
RF Engines (RFEL) has released details of its first product in its vectis family of multi-radix-architecture pipelined complex FFT cores The vectis4000R2 core can continuously process data at a sample rate of up to 200Msample/s, which the company believes is one of the world's fastest FFT cores of its type
Not only is the vectis family designed for high performance, but it is also designed to be optimised for minimal silicon use with this complex 4096-point version fitting in a single 1M gate Xilinx Virtex/E FPGA.
The cores are fully pipelined for maximum data throughput and complement RFEL's existing range of Pipelined Frequency Transform (PFT) products.
These IP cores are available for licence in net list or bit stream form and are intended for use in applications where processing speed is critical and optimum use of available silicon is required such as in high speed networking subsystems, VDSL communication systems and
