40GbE/100GbE IP core offering
16 July 2012
Altera announced the availability of its 40-Gbps Ethernet (40GbE) and 100-Gbps Ethernet (100GbE) IP cores.
These cores are effective for building systems requiring very high throughput-rate standard Ethernet connections, including chip-to-optical module, chip-to-chip, and backplane applications.
The media access control(MAC) and physical coding sublayer plus physical media attachment (PCS+PMA)sublayer IP cores are IEEE 802.3ba-2010 standard compliant, reducing design complexity for customers integrating 40GbEand 100GbE connections on Altera’s 28-nm Stratix V FPGAs and 40-nm Stratix IV FPGAs.
The cores are supported in Altera’s Stratix V GT and GX FPGAs with transceivers operating at data rates up to 28.05 Gbps and 14.1 Gbps, respectively, and Stratix IV GT FPGAs with transceivers operating at data rates up to 11.3 Gbps.
