Belgrade, Serbia – March 12th, 2013 - HDL Design House, provider of high performance digital and analog IP cores and SoC design and verification services, has announced availability of its Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS) IP core (HIP 500) which enables transmission and reception of data via 8-Lanes SerDes interface. It is able to multiplex a synchronous data stream over 8 Lanes, while guaranteeing data alignment and super-frame synchronization.
The PCS is responsible for generation of idle characters, lane striping and encoding on transmission and decoding, lane alignment and restriping on reception. The PCS uses an 8B/10B encoding for transmission over the link. The PCS IP Core provides two kinds of loopback capabilities, the external one that comprises 8B10B encoders/decoders only and internal that comprises both 8B10B encoders/decoders and super-frame generation/recovery.
For test purposes, the PCS IP offers built-in PRBS generator/verifier pairs. The PRBS pairs are implemented in two levels, the super-frame level and per-lane level.
