Ethernet PCS 10G/25G

Overview

Comcores 10G/25G PCS IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation of the PCS layer described in the Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3-2018 and compliant with Clause 49 of IEEE 802.3ae specification. The IP core is part of a family of IP cores that are tightly integrated.

 

The IP core is part of a family of IP cores that are tightly integrated. The IP core has been optimized for size and offers an XGMII/XXVGMII/XLGMII interface on one side and a 10-80-bit parallel interface at the PMA-side.

PTP profiles for 5G networks

Niklas Meyer Mortensen Jan 04 2022 The IEEE 1588 PTP standards provide a wealth of options and the basis for highly reliable and accurate time synchronization solutions. However, the time synchronization needs of specific applications in different industries can vary quite significantly. These specific needs are defined in separate PTP profile standards, often in collaboration with other industry standards organizations. For 5G, both IEEE and ITU-T provide relevant profiles that can be used to...
