Abaco Floating Point FFT - IEEE-754 Floating Point FFT/IFFT IP Core

Product Overview:

Abaco Systems' Floating Point FFT core is the most flexible IEEE-754 compliant FFT core available in the FPGA world. Designed for high performance programmable devices from Xilinx and Altera, this core performs Fast Fourier Transforms ranging from 256 points to 64M points and is ideal for high precision spectral analysis, radar and video processing applications. Download our bit-true model for 1D and 2D FFT.

Radix-32 vs Radix-2

This core is designed around a Radix-32 butterfly architecture. With equal performance, the memory resources and bandwidth required by our core are five times less than a design comprising five Radix-2 cores in parallel. Smart IP solutions increase board efficiency and reduce the price of digital signal processing systems.

Device resources usage for IEEE-754 implementation

The following graph displays the signal-to-noise ratio of a Fast Fourier Transform performed over a 1,024 points random vector with a 24-bit wide mantissa and 8-bit wide exponent. The software Discrete Fourier Transform was calculated using the FFTw functions.

A fully functional VHDL test bench and bit-true software development kit are delivered along the FFT/IFFT core for simulation purposes and specific performance characterization.

Abaco Systems (formerly GE Intelligent Platforms)

For 12 years, we were the embedded computing business of GE Intelligent Platforms - itself formed from a series fo acquisitions of market-leading embedded computing companies. 

The entire GE Intelligent Platforms team, around 700 people - made the transition from GE, meaning that our customers continue to deal with people with whom they've had relationships for years and in some cases, decades. 

Also making the transition from Ge are the robust, repeatable business processes for which the company is renowned - but these are now finely-tuned to the specific needs of our embedded computing customers.

We have brought with us from GE an absolute, all-overriding commitment to ethics. That commitment is fundamental and central to all our interactions with you. Trust is paramount to all our relationships. 

Abaco Systems products and solutions can be found in many high profile military/aerospace sea, land and air programs, as well as in commercial and industrial organizations in which rugged reliability is mission-critical. 

Abaco Systems is a global leader in open architecture rugged embedded systems. Spun out of GE in 2015 we combine the attitude and customer focus of a startup with 30 years of experience delivering rugged embedded computing products and solutions.
