Predictions and expectations of the upcoming JESD204D standard

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - May 2, 2023.The JESD204 Standard which was first introduced in 2006 is one of the key standardized serial interface between data converters (ADCs and DACs) and logic devices (FPGAs or ASICs) and has come a long way since its introduction, evolving with multiple iterations from JESD204B to JESD204C. The latest iteration of this standard the JESD204D is expected to release in Q4 2023 and if you are curious about the latest developments expected in the JESD204 standard,...

What is TSN?

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - Feb 14, 2023. TSN, or Time-Sensitive Networking, is a technology based on the IEEE 802.1Q standard. It has evolved from the Ethernet technology currently used to carry all types of traffic, for which ethernet was not originally intended, such as multiple data flows with different timing requirements, commonly found in Audio Video Bridging (AVB), automotive and industrial automation applications. TSN sits in Layer 2 of the OSI Model (figure 1).Figure 1: Illustration of...

What is interlaken?

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn - Oct 31, 2022. Interlaken provides a standardized serial interface that is agnostic of underlying SerDes implementations. It ensures reliable transfer of data over a configurable number of physical connections and can be configured to support multiple lane configurations. The Interlaken protocol provides mechanisms to ensure the integrity of data transfer as well as manage data flows to ensure that the chip is not overloaded. These mechanisms effectively increase the...

O-RAN Fronthaul Transport Security using MACsec

Daniel Dik - Sep 14, 2022. In this webinar, we will take a look at MACsec as a persuasive security solution for the O-RAN Fronthaul. We will understand the very sensitive data that the fronthaul transports, its strict high-performance requirements, and the urgent need to secure it against several threats and attacks. We will learn the features that MACsec has to protect the fronthaul together with its implementation challenges. Finally, we will see how the Comcores’ MACsec solution can be...

Unlock your chips full data throughput potential with Interlaken

Piotr Koziuk - Sep 12, 2022. Way back in the early 2000's when XAUI was falling short on link flexibility a search for an alternative chip-to-chip data transfer interface with SPI like features, lead Cisco Systems and Cortina System to put forward the proposal for the Interlaken standard. The new standard married the best of XAUI’s serialized data and SPI’s flow control capabilities. To this day the continuous growth in data consumption is driving demand for higher speeds, but also lower...
