The DesignWare® Ethernet Quality-of-Service (QoS) Controller IP implements the link layer of an OSI Ethernet system. The silicon-proven core is configurable and scalable to meet multiple Ethernet application requirements. Synopsys offers a high-quality IP solution that is in volume production and has been successfully implemented in a wide range of applications.
The DesignWare Ethernet QoS Controller IP is designed to support high-performance applications requiring audio video (AV) bridging, data center bridging, and advanced segmentation offloading features such as automotive IVI chips, set-top box chips, and network routers. This offloading is accomplished by removing any latency associated with configurable IP.
Typical design of configurable IP results in multiple layers that are bridged during configuration. Using multiple layers results in many unnecessary latencies due to double buffering of data as it crosses from one layer to another. The coreConsultant configuration tool removes the latencies at configuration time, thus providing high-performance IP.
Fast Ethernet QoS IP Prototyping & Integration with DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits Reduce Ethernet QoS IP prototyping and integration effort using DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits. The kits provide the essential hardware and software elements needed to start implementing the IP in an SoC in minutes. The included simulation testbench, reference drivers, and application examples enable designers to start their own IP software development right out of the box.
