Ethernet Subsystem 10G/25G

Overview

Comcores Ethernet Subsystem is a silicon-agnostic, easy-to-use integration of 10G/25G Ethernet MAC and PCS for Time-Aware Applications. The Subsystem comes in different variations and can be delivered integrated with Time Stamping Unit, IEEE 1588 PTP Software Stack, and DMA Controller.

Comcores Ethernet Subsystem is a richly featured, fully configurable solution delivering best in market performance while still keeping size at a minimum. The Subsystem is ready for 5G applications and is thoroughly tested and verified, thus will reduce risk and save development time.

Key Features

Flexible

The subsystem consists of various IP blocks that can be selected or
deselected based on customers’ requirements. The main versions are:

01- Ethernet MAC and PCS
02- Ethernet MAC, PCS, and Timestamping Unit (TSU)
03- Ethernet MAC, PCS, and IEEE 1588 PTP (TSU and SW Stack)
04- Ethernet MAC, PCS, IEEE 1588 PTP (TSU and SW Stack), and DMA
*** Ethernet MAC can be replaced by TSN MAC in all versions

 

5G Ready

  • The subsystem has been designed for 5G applications and has
    been delivered to 5G projects.

Ease-to-use and Reliable

  • HW validated subsystem
  • IP blocks are integrated and tested together

Silicon Agnostic

  • Designed in VHDL and targeting both ASICs and FPGAs

Deliverables

The IP Core can be delivered in Source code or Encrypted format. The following deliverables will be provided with the IP Core license:

  • Solid documentation, including User Manual and Release Note.
  • Simulation Environment, including Simple Testbed, Test case, Test Script.
  • Timing Constraints in Synopsys SDC format.
  • Access to support system and direct support from Comcores Engineers.

What is MACsec?

Morten Kofoed Esbjørn Sep 08 2022 Media Access Control Security (MACsec) is a layer2 security protocol standardized by the IEEE that operates on Ethernet frames. It uses AES GCM cryptography with 128-bit key and 256-bit key versions. MACsec is designed to provide authentication, confidentiality and integrity for data transported on point-to-point links in the enterprise Local Area Network (LAN) using the Advanced Encryption Standard with Galois/Counter Mode (AES-GCM) data cryptography...
