Ethernet MAC 10M/100M/1G/2.5G

Overview

Comcores Ethernet MAC 10M/100M/1G/2.5G IP solution enables the host to communicate data using the IEEE 802.3 standard for the respective speeds and is suited for use in networking equipment such as switches and routers. Comcores Ethernet MAC is silicon-proven and designed for easy integration into ASICs and FPGAs.

The Client-side interface is AXI-S and comes with GMII, RGMII or MII interfaces on the PHY side. The Ethernet MAC IP features a compact and low latency solution, it is highly configurable and can optionally include IEEE 1588 Timestamping Unit (TSU). The Ethernet MAC IP is prepared for easy integration with Comcores Ethernet PCS 10M/100M/1G/2.5G IP solution.

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...
