Ethernet and CPRI PCS 1G/2.5G/5G/10G/25G

Overview

Comcores offers a PCS IP core that can be used for both Ethernet and CPRI. Comcores PCS Ethernet and CPRI IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation of the Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS) compliant with Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3-2015 and CPRI Specification V7.0. The IP-core supports 1G, 2.5G, 5G, 10G, and 25G Ethernet data rates as well as CPRI data rate option 1 (614.14M) to option 10 (24.33024G).

Comcores PCS Ethernet and CPRI IP core can be dynamically configured to enable either 8b10b or 64b66b encoding/decoding.

In order to ensure easy integration, build-in test capabilities are provided in the core. The IP core has been optimized for size and is a highly tested solution that will fast track any project.

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:...
