The 10G Ethernet Controller core implements a Medium Access Controller (MAC) and associated user application interface. It is designed to comply with the IEEE802.3ae to meet the requirements for both WAN/MAN and LAN connectivity. It provides automatic flow-control implementation (Pause frames) as well as support for virtual bridged LANs (VLAN, 802.1Q) offering usage in a wide area of applications.
The 10G Ethernet Controller core implements, on the application side, a flexible FIFO interface that is designed to be seamlessly connected to any MorethanIP standard Telecom Interface. On the Ethernet Line side, the Controller contains a reconciliation sub-layer connected to vendor specific DDR (Dual Data Rate) I/O structures providing standard 32 bit XGMII (extended gigabit medium independent interface) connectivity.
