LogiCORE IP Turbo Product Code Encoder and Decoder (TPC) - The TPC is targeted for a Virtex-II/-II Pro. Is it possible to port this to a Spartan-II/-IIE /-3, or Virtex/-E/-4?

Description

The TPC is targeted for a Virtex-II/-II Pro. Is it possible to port this to a Spartan-II/-IIE/-3, or Virtex/-E/-4?

Solution

To port the core to Virtex/-E/-4, or Spartan-II/-IIEthere needs to be a redesign because the core contains several block RAM and hardware multipliers.

To achieve the highest performance, the core was designed using RPM techniques targeting the Virtex-II/-II Pro architecture. For other architectures, you would most likely need to remove or modify the relative location constraints. This causes further degradation in design performance.
