The Alphawave CDMAC IP core is an excellent solution to the 800/400/200G Ethernet application. It supports both the MAC and RS layer functions.
The CDMAC is compliant with IEEE 802.3-2018, Ethernet Technology Consortium, and 802.3bs. It supports the MAC function, MAC control function with PAUSE frame and the RS function according to Clause 2-4, 31, Annex 31A/B, and Clause 80-81, 45 of the IEEE 802.3-2018 and 802.3bs-2017. The CDMAC core can be used in a switch, interface card, or can operate as a performance monitor (collecting MAC/RS statistics). For a complete Ethernet application, the CDMAC seamlessly integrates with the Alphawave 800/400/200G PCS/PMA cores.
