Ethernet IP

Everywhere Ethernet Networks are Found

Cadence® Ethernet IP solutions include MAC, converters, and PCS IP. Our Ethernet controller designs are highly configurable and include products ranging from 10/100M to 100G. The controller area is optimized to provide you with the best power and performance for each application.

Cadence Ethernet PCS and connectivity IP let you interface Cadence and third-party MAC IP to standard interfaces. Ethernet MAC products also offer support for energy-efficient Ethernet, high-performance audio-video bridging, offload capabilities, and cost-sensitive solutions with single-port SRAMs and high-latency DRAMs. You can speed development using our software drivers with reference integration code for Linux.

Whether you are building SoCs for consumer, automotive, enterprise, or industrial applications, you can design with confidence because your Ethernet IP is mature, UNH-tested, and customizable to your needs. Cadence is an active member of the IEEE Working Groups and has participated in and edited various 802.3 specification documents. Our efforts have influenced the creation and support of Ethernet standards including 802.1AS for timing and synchronization, 802.1 priority queuing for audio/video bridging, and 802.3az energy-efficient Ethernet for low-power applications.
