    Homeplug AV turbo decoder

    Product code: TC1400

    TC1400 is a turbo decoder supporting the three following specifications Homeplug AV 1.0, Homeplug AV 2.0 and IEEE1901.

    The core is available with two levels of throughputs:

    • high throughput profile: up to 1 Gbits/s on high end process nodes
    • low throughput profile: 200 Mbits/s @ 8 iteration on high end process nodes

    Thanks to its flexible pipe-line architecture, TC1400 can be implemented efficiently on both ASIC and FPGA.

    Functional coverage:

    The following functions are supported:
    • channel de-interleaving
    • depuncturing for code rates 1/2, 16/21 and 16/18
    • turbo decoding for payload block sizes 16, 32, 136 and 520 bytes


    • Flexible pipe-line architecture for best efficiency on ASIC and FPGA targets
    • Efficient early stopping capability for reducing average number of iterations (reduced power consumption, higher average throughput)
    • Block-by-block change block length, and number of iterations
    • Latency reduction by bank swapping
    • No external memory required
    • Channel BER estimator
    • Selectable quantization level - prior synthesis (4 to 8 bits LLR quantization)
    • Low power architecture
    • Silicon proven
    • ASIC Core: Verilog or VHDL RTL source code
    • FPGA Core available on all popular Altera, Lattice and Xilinx devices
