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.

MACsec for Deterministic Ethernet applications

WHITEPAPER MACsec provides authentication by ensuring that only known nodes are allowed to communicate on the LAN. It provides confidentiality through encryption of the data so only end-points with the correct encryption key can see the contents. Integrity is provided through mechanisms that can detect any interference with data in motion. MACsec operates at the data link layer acting as a client of the Ethernet Media Access Control. While the ability of MACsec to scale to high speeds is...

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...
