FPGA design services...

Did you know that as well as our extensive library of generic IP Cores, we also operate as an FPGA 'design house', providing complete FPGA-based solutions from concept to implementation. In particular, we have a wide range of experience with Xilinx® 7-series FPGAs and the Vivado toolchain. If you're starting a new FPGA project or simply thinking of migrating to 7-series from a different technology, then we can help with IP, interfaces and system-level integration.

New IP cores available for ADS-B in-flight communications...

After clocking over 500 hours of successful flight trials, we are delighted to offer two new ADS-B receiver solutions for general sale. Operating at carrier frequencies of 978 MHz and 1090 MHz, the IP Cores are compliant with RTCA specifications: DO-282B and DO-260B for Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) and Extended Squitter (ES) equipment. Provided as VHDL source code, the IP is fully generic and is suitable for both FPGA and ASIC implementations. In flight acceptance testing was carried out with the help of our partners at Flight Data Systems Inc. Please click on the following links for more information: ADS-B (UAT) and ADS-B (ES).

AMBA AXI interfaces...

Did you know that most Zipcores IP Cores are compatible with the AMBA® AXI4 interface standards? AXI, AXI-Lite and AXI-Stream are specified by ARM® and they are fast becoming the leading industry standard for FPGA and SoC interconnect. With protocols for both streaming and memory-mapped operation, AXI has been adopted by Xilinx® for their IP architecture and associated Vivado toolchain. If you're looking for future-proof, reusable IP, then look no further than Zipcores!

UAT receiver for ADS-B and Ground uplink messages...

Zipcores is proud to announce the development of a new DO-282B (UAT) compliant receiver for ADS-B and Ground uplink messages. ADS-B represents a global transformation in air traffic control and safety - allowing aircraft and ground stations to autonomously share position, velocity and key flight data. The baseband receiver design was developed for a low-cost Altera® Cyclone III FPGA and was implemented using a range of custom and standard parts from our IP library.
