Solution Type: IP Core

End Market: Automotive, Broadcast, Computer & Storage, Consumer, Industrial, Medical, Military, Test & Measurement, Wireline

Evaluation Method: Source Code

Technology: Interface Protocols: Ethernet

Arria Series: Intel® Arria® 10

Cyclone Series: Intel® Cyclone® 10: Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX


DG 10GbE MAC core implements the MAC layer for TOE/UDP10G-IP core. It is fully compatible with Intel MAC core. It achieves Super Low latency and High-speed networking system.


  • Super Low Latency. Tx latency = 19.2nsec, Rx latency = 44.8nsec. 1/4 compared with Intel MAC.
  • Minimized resource usage. Drastically reduce resource consumption compared with Intel MAC by omitting MAC function which is not used for DG TOE/UDP10G
  • Low Cost Solution. It is provided with TOE/UDP10G-IP core with small additional fee. You do not need to purchase vender's EMAC core so you can reduce
