-- Xelic, Inc., a leading provider of Engineering Design Services and Networking Intellectual Property today announced that Lightwaves Systems has selected their Frame Mapped GFP core (XCGFPFM) for integration into future products.
The XCGFPFM will encapsulate/de-encapsulate frame mapped client traffic which includes Ethernet, PPP, MAPOS, and proprietary packet types in compliance with the ITU-T G.7041/Y.1303 specification. Generic Framing Procedure (GFP) Transmit and Receive functions operate independently to provide full duplex communication. The XCGFPFM core supports data rates up to 2.5Gb/s and is suitable for both FPGA and ASIC implementations.
