1000BASE-X or 10GBASE-R are names that only provide information on the data rate and the coding scheme without specifying the interface medium. By knowing how to decipher the Ethernet nomenclature by using the full name (10GBASE-KR or 10GBASE-ER), there is less ambiguity for IC designers to select the applicable medium. There may be different 10 Gigabit Ethernet specifications defined, but as long as the interconnect medium is correctly defined, the right specification can be selected for your next generation product. Synopsys’ DesignWare® Ethernet IP solutions support a broad range of Ethernet specifications and data rates.
