Ethernet Switch IP

Description and Features

Ethernet Switch core is a full-featured, easy-to-use, synthesizable design that supports various Ethernet IEEE standards. Through its Ethernet compatibility, it provides a simple interface to a wide range of lowcost devices. Ethernet Switch IP is proven in FPGA environment. It can also support a variety of host bus interfaces for easy adoption into any design architecture - AHB, AHB-Lite, APB, AXI, AXI-Lite, Tilelink, OCP, VCI, Avalon, PLB, Wishbone or custom buses.
