Synopsys 25G Ethernet MAC IP

The Synopsys 25G Ethernet MAC IP is designed for 1/2.5/5/10/25G Ethernet applications. It can be configured as MAC only, with a FIFO interface on the transmit and receive side or with an Arm® AMBA® AXI interface. Management Register access can be configured to use the AMBA APB or AMBA AXI slave interfaces. The IP includes Hyper DMA with up to 128/256 channels. The MAC IP provides a 25G Media-Independent Interface (XGMII) for communication with a corresponding PHY in 2.5/5/10/25G modes and a GMII interface in 1G mode. Also provided is a MDIO controller interface capable of addressing IEEE 802.3 compliant MDIO devices. Synopsys provides a complete, silicon-proven 25G Ethernet solution consisting of controllers, PHYs and verification IP. The cores are proven in various end applications ranging from automotive, networking, compute, and consumer.
