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 PCS layer 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.

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...
