Ethernet Switch 1G

Overview

Comcores Ethernet Switch IP core is a highly configurable and size-optimized implementation of a non-blocking crossbar switch that allows continuous transfers between up to 16 ports Ethernet ports via 1 Gbps GMII interfaces. The switch supports MAC learning and implements store-and-forward switching approach in order to fulfill Ethernet standard policy regarding frame integrity checking.

The switch supports up to 16 ports where each port provides GMII native interface for Ethernet PHY devices. The number of ports is configurable at compile time. Comcores Ethernet Switch IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation targeting both ASICs and FPGAs.

    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...
