Comcores Ethernet Switch IP core is a highly configurable and size optimized implementation of a non-blocking crossbar switch that allows continuous transfers between up to four (4) 10 Gbps Ethernet XGMII ports and fourty (40) 1 Gbps GMII interfaces.
The switch supports MAC learning, VLAN 802.1Q, multicast, broadcast as well as 1588 transparency. It implements store-and-forward switching approach in order to fulfill Ethernet standard policy regarding frame integrity checking.
Each port provides GMII or XGMII native interfaces for Ethernet PHY devices. The number of ports within the switching fabric is configurable at compile time.
