FFT Accelerator on ADSP-SC58x/ADSP-2158x is a completely new design as compared to the FFT accelerator on ADSP-214xx processors. The major differences/features of the FFT accelerator on ADSPSC58x/ADSP-2158x are:
- Unlike in ADSP-214xx, the FFTA on ADSP-SC58x/ADSP-2158x, supports pipelined FFT operations which means that it can process multiple channels in such a way that all the units input DMA, compute engine, and output DMA can run in parallel on different channels.
Supports both complex and real FFT and IFFT operations.
Supports 64 to 2048 points in small FFT mode and 4096 to 4 M points in large FFT mode.
Supports the IEEE-754/854 single-precision floating-point data format, round to even Radix-4 butterfly efficiency at a radix-2 (integer power of two) point granularity
Automatic insertion of zeros for real FFTs
Supports automatic conjugating of the twiddle factors for IFFT
Supports automatic scaling of FFT and IFFT inputs.
Hardware support for windowing
Hardware support for magnitude squared FFT output
Hardware support for pipelined data flow
Dedicated high speed DMA engines for data load and dump with a data width 64-bit clocked by SYSCLK supports data and coefficient access from both on-chip (L1/L2) and off-chip memories (L3)
Optional support for bypassing the compute engine to perform high speed memory to memory MDMA transfers
Compute engine clock division options for power reductions, supports 1:1, 1:2, 1:4 and 1:8 clock ratio modes
