10G EXTREME Low Latency Ethernet FPGA IP Core Solution
The 10Gbps Extreme Low Latency Ethernet IP 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)
