Mango 802.11 MAC/PHY Stack
Fully programmable 802.11 MAC/PHY stack for Xilinx FPGAs
Our 802.11 MAC/PHY stack implements a high-performance, real-time 802.11 MAC and PHY in modern Xilinx programmable devices. The design interoperates with standard Wi-Fi devices. The MAC and PHY implementations are ideal starting points for prototyping extensions to the 802.11 standard, researching custom wireless waveforms and evaluating custom MAC protocols in real time.
The 802.11 MAC/PHY stack has three components:
See our Frequently Asked Questions for more details.
This video demonstrates our 802.11 MAC/PHY stack running in real-time on the Analog Devices ADRV9361 development platform. The node is acting as an AP providing internet connectivity to a Wi-Fi client. All MAC and PHY processing is running in real time on the Xilinx Zynq device with wireless transmissions and receptions via the ADI AD9361 radio.
Our design's extensive control and measurement plane is also demonstrated in this video. A PC is connected to the AP node via Ethernet and is collecting logs of every wireless Tx/Rx event in real time. The Rx logs are analyzed on the PC which then plots the frequency-domain channel coefficients for every wireless reception at the AP. This measurement and analysis process occurs in parallel with normal MAC/PHY operation.
Our 802.11 MAC/PHY stack is suitable for a wide variety of applications and is available under flexible licensing options. The License Type depends on the customer and application. The License Tier depends on what source code access is required.
