DesignWare IP Prototyping Kits for Ethernet

The DesignWare® IP Prototyping Kits for Ethernet QoS and Ethernet XGMAC center around a complete, out-of-the-box reference design that consists of a validated IP configuration and necessary SoC integration logic. The software and application examples are implemented on Synopsys’ HAPS®-DX FPGA-based prototyping system, or they can be delivered separately as files for implementation on your in-house HAPS-DX system.

DesignWare IP Prototyping Kit for Ethernet Quality of Service

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.
