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.

Accelerate time-to-market with Ethernet TSN solutions using Comcores IP

WHITEPAPER - Accelerate time-to-market with Ethernet TSN solutions Accelerate time-to-market with reliable Ethernet TSN solutions using Comcores IP. Ever since its introduction in 1973, the Ethernet protocol has expanded and evolved to support every conceivable connectivity application. Ethernet is designed to be a non-deterministic packet-based network, but this also means that Ethernet cannot satisfy the needs of applications that require time-critical, fail-safe operation. These...
