10G EXTREME Low Latency Ethernet FPGA IP Core Solution


The 10Gbps Extreme Low Latency Ethernet FPGA IP core solution offers a fully integrated IEEE 802.3-2015 compliant package for NIC (Network Interface Card) and Ethernet switching applications. This extreme low latency solution is specifically targeted for demanding financial, high frequency trading and HPC applications.


  • Round Trip Latency of 24.9ns + Device Specific Transceiver Latency

As shown in the diagram, the 10Gbps ELL Ethernet IP solution includes:

  • Extreme low latency Ethernet; Tx = 7.8ns (user data in to line preamble out), Tx = 14.0ns (user data in to line data out) , Rx = 10.9ns; (line data in to user data out).  "ALL latency numbers include full FCS generation and checking."
  • Technology dependent transceiver wrapper for Altera and/or Xilinx FPGAs
  • Statistics counter block (for RMON and MIB)
  • MDIO and I2C cores for external module and optical module status and control


  • Encrypted MAC and PCS RTL for simulation and synthesis
  • Encrypted L2 packet generator and checker RTL for simulation and synthesis
  • Source code RTL (Verilog) for top level Ethernet wrappers to allow for user specific customizations.
  • Technology specific transceiver wrappers for the selected device family
  • Source code RTL (Verilog) for AXI4 Lite and Avalon-MM arbiters and address decoders
  • Constraint files and synthesis scripts for design compilation
  • Linux based APIs/tools to access core configuration and statistics registers
  • Design guide(s) and user manual(s)
