Ethernet PCS 10G/25G

Overview

Comcores 10G/25G PCS IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation of the Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS) 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 PCS 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.

Daniel Dik Sep 14 2022, 5G provides a range of improvements compared to existing 4G LTE mobile networks in regards to capacity, speed, latency and security. One of the main improvements is in the 5G RAN; it is based on a virtualized architecture where functions can be centralized close to the 5G core for economy or distributed as close to the edge as possible for lower latency performance. The functional split options for the baseband station processing chain results in a separation between...
