Ittiam Systems, a DSP and services startup, announced the availability of its 802.11g-compliant WLAN physical layer.

The silicon IP can be integrated into SoC designs, Ittiam said. The synthesizable core has been licensed by undisclosed customers in North America and Asia, and the 802.11g silicon IP adds to Ittiam's portfolio of 802.11b and 802.11a physical layers and its 802.11 media-access controller (MAC).

Ittiam's 802.11g physical layer silicon IP is delivered as a synthesizable RTL (Verilog and VHDL) core, along with documentation, verification test benches and floating- and fixed-point simulation models. Ittiam said it provides a hardware verification platform for validating operation and performance at 54Mbps at the physical layer on an FPGA.

It also demonstrates the interoperability of the wireless LAN IP over the air using RF chipsets from different vendors, Ittiam said.

The company claims the synthesizable core offers competitive a gate count and better performance through advanced signal-processing algorithms for acquisition, synchronization, channel estimation and equalization.

Ittiam is participating with its licensees in the integration of the physical layer IP with their SoC designs, including integration with an 802.11 MAC and 802.11g RF chipset. The synthesizable core is also offered on the latest-generation FPGAs from Altera and Xilinx for custom application of WLANs.
