Copenhagen, Denmark, March 24, 2022 – Comcores ApS, a fast-growing specialized supplier of Intellectual Property (IP) cores, announces the availability of an O-RAN Fronthaul Transport Subsystem. Comcores Subsystem is a packaged IP solution for the fronthaul transport of the O-RAN Radio Unit. The IP cores are tailored to work together efficiently, thus simplifying the integration into an FPGA or ASIC. Using the packaged IP solution ensures correct interoperability between the IPs contained in the solution and reduces the integration time and risk.
Comcores can tailor a packaged solution based on customer requirements by combining Comcores IPs. The O-RAN Fronthaul Transport Subsystem contains Ethernet MAC, PCS, DMA and IEEE 1588 PTP by default, and can optionally be extended with MACsec, eCPRI and Ethernet Switch. Furthermore, a JESD204B or JESD204C IP can also be provided for transporting data between the DFE and RF-FE.
Key Benefits of the O-RAN Fronthaul Transport Subsystem IP:
- Adding Value
- Reduces customer’s time to market and risks
- Frees up customer’s strategic resources
- HW validated packaged IP solution
- The packaged IP solution consists of building blocks, which are integrated and tested together
- The IP blocks can be combined in a flexible way to suit customer’s requirements
- Silicon Agnostic
- Targeting both ASICs and FPGAs
