802.11 Reference Design for WARP v3

The 802.11 Reference Design is a real-time FPGA implementation of the IEEE 802.11 OFDM PHY and DCF MAC for Mango WARP v3 hardware. The base Reference Design can interact with commercial 802.11 devices, acting as an access point (AP) or a station (STA). Researchers can modify the design to explore extensions and improvements to the standard MAC and PHY and test their extensions in networks of real 802.11 devices.

Refer to the architecture page of this user guide for an overview of how the PHY, MAC and other code are integrated in the Reference Design. The PHY and MAC pages provide additional details on what features are implemented in the current design.

The 802.11 Reference Design is designed for WARP v3 hardware. Previous generations of WARP hardware are not supported, as the design requires tools and FPGA features which preclude porting to Virtex-II Pro or Virtex-4 FPGAs.

The source code and models are available under the Mango Reference Design License. For any questions about the license please contact Mango Communications. For any technical questions about the design please post to the forums.

NEW Dec 24 2014: Version 1.1 of the 802.11 Reference Design has been released!
