Ethernet Cores


Our Ethernet IP Portfolio contains 1GE, 10GE, 25GE, 40GE, 100GE and 400GE wire-speed and covers  PCS and MAC/RS layer functions. 

  1. 400GE PCS (IEEE 802.3bs)  – This is the PCS layer function of the  latest and highest ethernet rate specified by IEEE 802 Ethernet standard.
  2. 400GE MAC (IEEE 802.3bs)  – This is the MAC/RS layer function of the  latest and highest ethernet rate specified by IEEE 802 Ethernet standard.
  3. 100GE PCS + FEC (802.3ba + 802.3bj FEC layer) – This core combines the well defined 100GE (802.3ba) and the latest 802.3bj standard.
  4. 100GE MAC + PCS Lite – This core supports 100GE MAC/RS layer function as well as offering an efficient option for OTN interconnect for the MAC/RS via PCS-lite. The PCS-lite is a reduced function of 100GE PCS and aims to support OTN connectivity efficiently with the Ethernet MAC/RS client.
  5. 25GE/10GE PCS-R – This is a 25GE PCS core with an optional RS-FEC addon specified by IEEE 802.3by standard. This is a dual rate PCS-R supporting both 25GE and 10GE PCS-R.
  6. 10GE PCS-R/X/W – These cores support all variances of 10GE PCS.
  7. 25GE/10GE MAC/RS – This core supports dual-rate of MAC/RS layer function of IEEE 802.3 standard.
