An IP block combining all functions required to implement an 802.16a WirelessMAN-OFDM Channel Codec.
This core is intended to accelerate the development of an 802.16a solution by combining all of the required back-end Phy layer functions in a very easy-to-integrate package. It interfaces to the MAC and to the FFT section of an 802.16a solution in addition to providing a register bank interface for configuration by the host processor.
In addition, the core performs all of the burst profile management functions that are required to support the dynamic code-rate and QAM order switching between bursts. The different operational modes of 802.16a are fully supported within the block with minimum overhead to the CPU.
