Fixed-Point AWGN Channel 

The Creonic AWGN Channel IP core is a noise generator capable of processing up to a maximum of 512 symbols in parallel. The IP core was developed with the aim of allowing the performance evaluation of a digital communication system in the presence of Additive White Gaussian Noise. The emphasis is on evaluating systems with low bit error rates. Unlike a software-based AWGN generator, which might take several hours and even days for the stated purpose, a hardware-based AWGN generator requires significantly less time. Run-time is reduced by several orders of magnitude.








  • Digital communication systems for which an AWGN channel is required

Your Benefits  

  • Design-time configuration of the number of symbols in parallel, quantization of input and output and precalculation of standard variation, for adjustment of resource utilization
  • Low-power and low-complexity design
  • AXI4-Stream interface for easy integration
  • Available for ASIC and FPGAs (Xilinx, Intel)
  • Deliverable includes VHDL source code or synthesized netlist, VHDL testbench, and bit-accurate Matlab, C or C++ simulation model, HDL simulation models e.g. for Aldec’s Riviera-PRO
