'Total IP Solutions' Provider Completes Rigorous Testing of 10/100 Ethernet IP CoreSAN JOSE, Calif. -- Dec. 12, 2007
-- Arasan Chip Systems, Inc., (``Arasan''), a leader in Intellectual Property (IP) solutions -- IP cores, Verification IP (VIP), Software drivers and stacks and Hardware solutions, announced today that its silicon proven 10/100 Ethernet IP solution has completed interoperability testing at the University of New Hampshire's Interoperability Lab (UNH IOL). Testing was conducted with Arasan's hardware development kit and software drivers, ensuring a ``Total IP Solution.'' In addition to the 10/100 Ethernet solution, Arasan is in process with UNH on their Gigabit Ethernet IP solution.
``The lab stringently applied IEEE standards to put Arasan's MAC core through its paces, testing for things such as bit integrity, deference, encapsulation, frame size and collision handling,'' said Peter Scruton, manager of the UNH-IOL's Fast Ethernet Consortium. ``Arasan is utilizing its membership in our Fast Ethernet Consortium in a way that demonstrates strong commitment to industry standards designed to facilitate improved networks.''
``We are very pleased to have completed the testing of our 10/100 Ethernet IP,'' said Kevin Yee, Vice President of Marketing at Arasan. ``In working with UNH, designers can be assured that Arasan's 10/100 Ethernet IP solution provides the fastest time to market, while offering the highest degree of design success.''10/100 Ethernet Solution
