Karlsfeld, Germany, March 21, 2013 -- MorethanIP today announced the immediateavailability of the industry first IP (Intellectual Property) solution for 100GBase-CR4 and100GBase-KR4. The Core is compliant with the IEEE802.3bj latest Draft 1.3specification and is optimized for ASIC technologies.
The Core implements the mandatory Reed Solomon Forward Error Correction (RS FEC)encoding and error detection blocks and, optionally, the RS FEC error correction block.When implemented, the error correction block can be bypassed with softwareprogramming to reduce the application latency.
The MorethanIP 100GBase-CR4 / 100GBase-KR4 PCS Core combines, in a singleIntellectual Property (IP) Core, the RS FEC Block with MorethanIP proven 100GethMLD, PCS, Autonegotiation and link Training functions.
The PCS is programmable with a simple parallel register interface or a serial ExtendedMDIO slave. The PCS also implements the mandatory link status and error detection forefficient silicon and application bring up.
The PCS can be connected, with no Glue Logic, to industry standard Serdes with a 40-Bitor a 64-Bit interface and, to design efficient and compact 100Geth backplane controllers,to MorethanIP silicon proven 100Geth MAC Core.
The RS FEC Block is also available integrated in MorethanIP silicon proven multi-rate,multi-channel 1/10/40/100Geth Hydra-4 MAC / PCS Core which provides a universalprogrammable Ethernet interface solution that meets legacy, current and futureapplications requirements.
The 100GBase-KR4/CR4 and Hydra-4 IP Cores are delivered with the MorethanIP userfriendlyconfiguration graphical user interface, through which designers can easilyeliminate features that are not required, reducing unit costs and simplifying integration.
MorethanIP supplies the Cores with the ability to do functional simulation and synthesisusing an industry standard Verilog simulation and synthesis tools.
