POS-PHY (Packet Over Sonet Physical) Level 3 (PL3) is a standard interface endorsed by the ATM Forum to transfer data between framers and PHY devices. The PL3 interface allows one PHY layer device to connect to one link layer device, and, when joined in this manner, supports single or multiple logical PHY ports. The MC-ACT-PL3PHY core will accept/send packets from/to the POS-PHY LINK device. The core comes with a testbench that includes a simulation version of the LINK core.
