10 Gigabit Ethernet support on iWave’s Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC SOM

Ethernet continues its unending march to higher and better levels of performance and capability. 10Gb Ethernet holds the promise to provide the demanding market needs, increase in performance, maintain compatibility with its prior variants.

It can address the demanding needs of a High-Performance Real-Time System, Cloud Computing, Zero-Latency Transmission System, High-Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC), also a viable option for High-Speed Inter-Processor and I/O Communications

Solution Offered by iWave

The act of processing the communication protocol stack at 10 Gigabit Ethernet, taxes modern FPGAs to cater high-speed network applications. Engineers who’re designing the solutions around 10GbE got a helping hand from the introduction of Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. This device facilitates as many as Quad A53 Cores, Dual R5 Cores, GPU, in addition to these Programmable Logic Cells (192K to 1153K LEs) with High-Speed transceivers (16.3 Gbps) in a single chip and Industrial Temperature range needed for deployed applications.
