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:

UWB WiFlex
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.
