Kaiserslautern, Germany, July 11, 2022 – Creonic GmbH, the market leader in IP cores for satellite communications, today announced general support for Microchip FPGAs. IP cores can now be provided for low-power families such as PolarFire® and IGLOO® 2, SoC FPGAs like PolarFire SoC and SmartFusion® 2 SoC and furthermore radiation-tolerant devices such as RT PolarFire and RTG4™.
In particular in space applications, low-power and radiation-tolerant FPGAs are very popular. As such, Microchip FPGAs are widely adopted in this domain. Based on customer demand, Creonic introduced the Microchip tool flow with the Libero® SoC Design Suite, being able to deliver a good deal of its portfolio for the Microchip FPGA ecosystem. Where needed, features like Error Detection and Correction (EDAC) of the built-in SRAM-based RAM blocks are exploited.
Customers benefit from access to the broad IP core portfolio covering standards like CCSDS, DVB-S2/DVB-S2X and DVB-RCS2. These are first choice for satellite communication and further near-earth or deep-space applications. Forward Error Correction (FEC) algorithms covered are Turbo, LDPC, Polar, RS, BCH, and convolutional coding.
