1G/2.5G/5G/10G/25G PCS Ethernet and CPRI

General Description

Comcores offers a PCS IP core that can be used for both Ethernet and CPRI. Comcores PCS Ethernet and CPRI IP core is a silicon agnostic implementation of the PCS layer compliant with Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3-2015 and CPRI Specification V7.0. The IP-core supports 1G, 2.5G, 5G, 10G, and 25G Ethernet data rates as well as CPRI data rate option 1 (614.14M) to option 10 (24.33024G). Comcores PCS Ethernet and CPRI IP core can be dynamically configured to enable either 8B/10B or 64B/66B encoding/decoding.

In order to ensure easy integration, build-in test capabilities are provided in the core. The IP-core has been optimized for size and is a highly tested solution that will fast track any project.
