Developed in collaboration with Xilinx®, Inc., the RADX™ EdgeQAM IP Core Set is a modular, scalable set of Intellectual Property (IP) Cores that enable Cable Head-End OEMs and System Integrators (SIs) to rapidly develop and deploy high-performance, cost-effective and power-efficient J.83 Annex A/B/C EdgeQAM subsystems based on Xilinx 7 series FPGAs. For optimal compatibility and return on investment, the RADX EdgeQAM IP Core Set is designed to enable OEMs and SIs to meet CableLabs® CMAP™ and M-CMTS™ standards and to deliver up to six (6) RF ports per subsystem with up to 160 QAM Channels per RF port .
The RADX EdgeQAM IP Core Set consists of four (4) optimized IP modules which may be combined and tailored to meet a wide range of EdgeQAM CMTS requirements:
• Multi-Channel MPEG Transport Stream (MTS) Input Handling IP Core
• Multi-Channel J.83 Annex A/B/C IP Cores
• Multi-Channel Agile Digital Up Converter (DUC) IP Cores with support for Analog Devices® (ADI) and Maxim® DACs
• Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD) IP Cores for Maxim DACs (the IP Core Set is also compatible with ADI DPD IP Cores)
