Magali 65nm SoC
Magali is a System-on-Chip (SoC) for 4G communication manufactured in 65nm technology, which consists of 22 IP cores. Two IP cores were contributed by the founders of Creonic for the Magali-ASIC in cooperation with CEA-LETI, France.
The two IP cores contributed by the founders of Creonic are:
- an LDPC decoder for high data rates of more than 640 Mbit/s within the context of UWB applications.
- a flexible LDPC decoder (WiFlex) that supports multiple standards such as WiMax and WiFi at the same time.
Key features of these IP cores are:
|Maximum block length||1200 Bits||16384 Bits|
|Area||0.58 mm²||1.17 mm²|
|Maximum clock frequency||435 MHz||385 MHz|
|Throughput||663 Mbit/s||< 385 Mbit/s|
|Power consumption||202 mW||389 mW|
The LDPC decoders were successfully adapted to the interfaces of the Network-on-Chip (NoC) as specified by CEA-LETI in order to be able to communicate with the rest of the IP cores on the SoC, such as the ARM processor.
