Ethernet PCS 1G/2.5G

Overview

Comcores PCS IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation of the PCS layer compliant with Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3-2018. The IP core supports 1G and 2.5G line rates. The IP provides an interface between the Media Access Control (MAC) and Physical Medium Attachment (PMA) through a Gigabit Media Independent Interface (GMII) or Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface (SGMII).

On one side it interfaces to a Serdes device and on the application side it has a port for GMII/SGMII Ethernet signals.

The IP core is verified using advanced methodologies for RTL design, verification, HW verification and interoperability testing. It has been optimized for size and is a highly tested solution that will fast track any project.

Delivering timing accuracy in 5G networks – IEEE 1588 PTP Whitepaper

WHITEPAPER How IEEE 1588 PTP has evolved to meet the stringent time synchronization requirements of 5G In mobile networks, time synchronization has always been important. Each new generation of mobile networks has driven the need for increased precision and accuracy in synchronization standards and solutions. Nevertheless, 5G is different. 5G time synchronization requirements are the most demanding seen to date and have elevated the importance of time synchronization and the need for more...

WHITEPAPER Accelerate time-to-market with reliable Ethernet TSN solutions using Comcores IP Ever since its introduction in 1973, the Ethernet protocol has expanded and evolved to support every conceivable connectivity application. Ethernet is designed to be a non-deterministic packet-based network, but this also means that Ethernet cannot satisfy the needs of applications that require time-critical, fail-safe operation. These short-comings are targeted by the Ethernet Time-Sensitive Networking...
