DesignWare XGMAC - 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC

Search Tools

Synopsys XGMAC DesignWare® IP is compliant with the IEEE 802.3 specification for 1G/10G Ethernet. It interfaces to the PHY layer through the XGMII interface, and to the system through a FIFO or AMBA AXI interface. To ease SoC integration, the IP is highly configurable so it can tailor its feature set to target applications supporting speeds of 1G, 2.5G or 10G. The XGMAC can be integrated with the DesignWare Ethernet PCS and the DesignWare XAUI PHY IP for a complete 10 Gigabit Ethernet solution.
