Lattice and Flexibilis unveils first FPGA Ethernet Switch IP cores with HSR (IEC 62439-3) protocol support
June 14, 2011 // Paul Buckley
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation and Flexibilis Oy have announced the immediate availability of the Flexibilis Ethernet Switch (FES) IP core.†The triple speed (10 Mbps/100 Mbps/1 Gbps) FES IP cores operate on Ethernet Layer 2 and can switch with gigabit forwarding capacity per port.†
Data forwarding and classification inside the switch is based on MAC address information in the packets and the prioritization scheme. Quality of service is supported with up to four queues per port. The Ethernet switch IP core is available in five versions that vary in their number of ports and functionality:
- High Availability Seamless Redundancy QuadBox FES
- High Availability Seamless Redundancy RedBox FES
- 8-port FES
- 4-port FES
- 3-port FES
The protocol is applicable across a range of applications that demand high availability and sub-microsecond accuracy.
Target applications include smart grid substation automation and networked industrial automation gear, as well as in high availability network equipment.
The FES IP cores are equipped with IEEE 1588 version 2 end-to-end transparent switch functionality, which significantly improves the ability to resist the degradation of clock information quality in larger networks. The ability is critical in meeting the strict quality of service (QoS) requirements in wireless backhaul, wireline access, datacenter bridging and industrial Ethernet application. This feature makes the FES IP cores suitable for applications such as microwave backhaul routers, cell side routers and industrial automation products.
