IP Cores, Inc. (http://www.ipcores.com) announces additional shipments of RS (528,514) and RS (544,514) forward error correction (FEC) codecs for the IEEE 200 Gbps and 400 Gbps IEEE Ethernet standards.

IP Cores, Inc., (California, USA, http://www.ipcores.com) has announced additional shipments of the cores from its RS200 forward error correction IP core family that supports the IEEE 50, 200, and 400 Gbps standards.

“RS200 is a well-known series of cores that follow in the footsteps of our hugely successful RS100 family,” said Dmitri Varsanofiev, CTO of IP Cores, Inc. “Our developers will keep tracking the progress of the fast-moving IEEE 802.3 standardization group, so that our customers always have access to the FEC IP cores that are reflecting the Clause 91 and Clause 134 in the latest versions of the standards”.

IEEE 50G, 200G, and 400G Ethernet

IEEE 802.3bs (http://www.ieee802.org/3/bs/) standardization group had added 400 Gbps data rate to PHYs to the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet specification and and IEEE 802.3cd (http://www.ieee802.org/3/cd/) is adding the 50, 100, 200 Gbps. RS200 cores, shipping for more than a year, support the ASIC designs targeting these standards and are available in a variety of bus widths and target clock rates.

The RS200 FEC cores support the RS(528, 514) and RS(544, 514) ocdes. Just like the RS100 family, RS200 cores support channelization (a.k.a. fracturability, ability to process in time-multiplexed fashion, for example 1x400 Gbps stream, 2x200 Gbps, 1x200 + 1x100 + 2x50 Gbps, etc.).
