Solution Type: 


The Creonic CCSDS LDPC IP support the LDPC coding scheme as defined by the CCSDS standard. The LDPC code with single rate 223/255 was specially designed for Near-Earth missions, but the excellent error correction performance makes it the ideal fit for further high-throughput applications. The IP cores are available for ASIC and FPGAs (Altera).


  • -support for code rate 223/255 (7136/8160)
  • -coded block size 8160 bits
  • -compliant with "TM Synchronization and channel coding

Device Utilization and Performance

-1.6 Gbit/s coded throughput at 200 MHz -decoding latency of 4.3 µs at 5 layered decoder iterations and 200 MHz -encoding latency of 40ns at 200 MHz
