The New Wave DV Fibre Channel Audio Video (FC-AV) core provides a complete hardware IP solution for the FC-AV protocol.
The core provides full FC compliance, hardware-based FC-AV container processing, and offload of FC frame handling including: FC-AV Container offload, hardware-based AV Object processing, DMA controller, frame building/checking, and CRC generation/checking.
The host interface to the core can be AXI or PCIe. The core is built for dropping into a FPGA and providing the complete design from processor interface to FC-AV network interface.
This core is targeted towards applications in aerospace and has been used on a wide range of parts at varying operating rates. The core comes with test-benches and example code, making design integration a straightforward task.
Evaluation versions of the FC-AV IP core are available and New Wave DV has a set of standard form-factor boards featuring FPGAs, Fibre Channel optics, and off-the-shelf reference designs for quick evaluation of the IP core.
