Ethernet MAC 10G/25G

Overview

Comcores Ethernet MAC 10G/25G 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 a 64-bit AXI-S and comes with a 64-bit XGMII 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 10G/25G IP solution.
