Karlsfeld, Germany -- March 21, 2013 -- MorethanIP today announced the immediate availability of the industry first IP (Intellectual Property) solution for 100GBase-CR4 and 100GBase-KR4. The Core is compliant with the IEEE802.3bj latest Draft 1.3 specification and is optimized for ASIC technologies.
The Core implements the mandatory Reed Solomon Forward Error Correction (RS FEC) encoding and error detection blocks and, optionally, the RS FEC error correction block. When implemented, the error correction block can be bypassed with software programming to reduce the application latency.
The MorethanIP 100GBase-CR4 / 100GBase-KR4 PCS Core combines, in a single Intellectual Property (IP) Core, the RS FEC Block with MorethanIP proven 100Geth MLD, PCS, Autonegotiation and link Training functions.
The PCS is programmable with a simple parallel register interface or a serial Extended MDIO slave. The PCS also implements the mandatory link status and error detection for efficient silicon and application bring up.
The PCS can be connected, with no Glue Logic, to industry standard Serdes with a 40-Bit or a 64-Bit interface and, to design efficient and compact 100Geth backplane controllers, to MorethanIP silicon proven 100Geth MAC Core.
The RS FEC Block is also available integrated in MorethanIP silicon proven multi-rate, multi-channel 1/10/40/100Geth Hydra-4 MAC / PCS Core which provides a universal programmable Ethernet interface solution that meets legacy, current and future applications requirements.
The 100GBase-KR4/CR4 and Hydra-4 IP Cores are delivered with the MorethanIP userfriendly configuration graphical user interface, through which designers can easily eliminate features that are not required, reducing unit costs and simplifying integration. MorethanIP supplies the Cores with the ability to do functional simulation and synthesis using an industry standard Verilog simulation and synthesis tools.
MorethanIP was founded 1999 as a GmbH (Ltd.) in Munich Germany and is an IP and design house concentrating on high-speed communications and embedded systems. This includes design specification and implementation of standard products, system architectures and customer specific solutions.
