The folks at Lattice have announced the availability of a 3GPP Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Convolutional Turbo Code Decoder intellectual property (IP) core from TurboConcept, a member of the ispLeverCORE Connection IP partners program.

Through the program, Lattice and TurboConcept will provide complete system solutions for their mutual wireless customers who are integrating system-level IP with the most advanced FPGA silicon architectures. The ispLeverCORE Connection program allows customers to access and integrate approved third-party IP products easily into Lattice programmable devices. The IP core is available now, targeted for the LatticeSC and LatticeSCM (collectively, LatticeSC/M) as well as the LatticeECP2 and LatticeECP2M (collectively, LatticeECP2/M) devices.

TurboConcept has ported, optimized and tested the TC7000-LTE, supporting all turbo code modes specified in the 3GPP LTE PHY. The core is available with several distinct throughputs, ranging from 40 to +150Mbit/s payload bit rate.

This core is available now for the LatticeSC/M and LatticeECP2/M FPGA devices in netlist format for immediate purchase from TurboConcept. Customers should contact TurboConcept for pricing. TurboConcept also offers a variety of additional packaging and licensing options to suit specific customer needs. By leveraging partner IP products, customers can quickly implement a wide variety of functions in Lattice programmable devices.
