The 'Non-Standalone' phase of 5G NR was frozen at the 3GPP RAN#78 meeting in December 2017, meaning eMBB services will be using the New Radio standard from mid-2018! This hearlds the first volume application of Polar Channel Codes, which have been adopted for the control channel.
AccelerComm has patent pending 3GPP compliant encode and decode IP for polar channel coding available NOW...CONTACT US for details, schedules and business models
Our polar development comes on the back of our industry leading turbo decoder, exploiting techniques and experience from that programme Five years in development, and drawing on the team’s 50 person-years of channel coding experience and research, AccelerComm’s patent pending ultra low latency turbo decoding IP is unique, delivering 10X throughput and 10X latency improvement over existing products.
Perfectly suited to meet the requirements of LTE-Advanced Pro, (3GPP rel 15), our solution is capable of throughputs of 20Gbps and sub- micro second latency, whilst maintaining hardware efficiency, (throughput per unit area) and low power consumption. This AccelerComm unique technology achieves unprecedented performance whilst laying down the technology foundation for future wireless applications and services.
After reading Prof Maunder's tutorial on the 'Implementation Challenges of polar codes' you'll want to talk with the experts, not make your own!
This time next week, we'll be edging close to the end of Day 1 of Mobile World Congress 2018.
AccelerComm will be demonstrating their polar code IP (encode and decode) on both Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA and Intel (Altera) Arria 10 FPGA. With 3GPP freezing the 5G NR spec in Decemebr 2017, it's full steam ahead for equipment
