Dublin, Ireland Nov 1st 2004
- Duolog Technologies, a leading provider of platform level intellectual property and design services for the communications semiconductor market, today announced the availability of its integrated 802.11abg Access Point, MAC and PHY Intellectual Property.
The IP runs at full ASIC clock speed on an FPGA platform and has been tested for interoperation with third party systems. The IP supports Zero_IF and Low_IF front-ends and is integrated with a leading OEM radio. Silicon proven AFE interfaces in 0.18um and 0.13um are also available for the IP.
A state machine implementation of the MAC ensures it is optimised for silicon area and power dissipation. The MAC contains hardware implementations of the WEP, WPA and CCMP/AES modules required for 802.11i. The MAC hardware also provides the priority queueing structure necessary to support HCCA/EDCA, Block ACK and DLP modules of 802.11e.
The innovative re-use of hardware resources for Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), Complimentary Code Keying (CCK) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) Baseband cores significantly reduces power consumption and silicon area. Power efficient radar detection hardware, essential to support future worldwide regulatory requirements, and the 802.11h standard extension, is under development and will be fully integrated into the Duolog IP.
“By providing the 802.11abg Access Point, MAC and PHY IP core along with the necessary RTL to GDSII backend services necessary to integrate it onto an SoC, Duolog significantly reduces time to market and cost for our customers”, commented Jo Adlard, Wireless Program Manager at Duolog Technologies
