The 10G Ethernet MAC Controller is a highly flexible and configurable design targeted for desktop, server, mobile, networking and telecom applications. The controller architecture is carefully tailored to optimize link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption, and silicon footprint.
The The 10G Ethernet MAC Controller's simple, configurable and layered architecture is independent of application logic, PHY designs, implementation tools and, most importantly, the target technology. The solution allows the licensees to easily migrate among FPGA, Gate array and Standard cell technologies optimally. Its flexible backend interface makes it easy to be integrated into wide range of applications. Mobiveil solution provides highly scalable bandwidth through configurable lanes, widths and frequencies.
The 10G Ethernet MAC Controller leverages years of experience in PCI, PCI-X and HyperTransport technologies and the expertise in creating system validated IP solutions with RTL, synthesis, simulation, board and software elements to offer lowest risk in terms of compliance and inter operability.
