FPGA-PROGRAMMABLE MULTI-GIGABIT BASE-T PHY
AQcite product family integrates Aquantia’s industry-leading
AQrate BASE-T PHY with a Xilinx® Kintex-7® FPGA
Aquantia AQcite is a product family of programmable PHYs that includes the AQLX107, a PHY+FPGA multi-gigabit connectivity solution. The AQLX107 is a single-chip programmable BASE-T PHY+Controller/Bridge device based on AQrate technology and the Xilinx® Kintex7® FPGA. The AQLX107 is the first FPGA-programmable multi-gigabit BASE-T PHY that includes an integrated FPGA enabling “Any-to-Ethernet” programmability and connectivity up to 100 meters of Cat 5e or better cabling.
AQLX107 is compatible with both the IEEE® 802.3an and IEEE 802.3bz standards and the NBASE-T™ Alliance PHY Specification. AQLX107 integrates such features as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), 1588v2, MACsec, and supports all PoE standards up to 100W. With AQLX107, customers can create their own unique controller, protocol converter, and bridge devices that can connect directly to standard Ethernet switches using the most versatile and advanced BASE-T PHY technology.
Aquantia’s AQLX107 enables customers to engineer their own unique controller and protocol converter of “Any-to-Ethernet” and connect it directly to standard Ethernet networks using the most versatile and advanced BASE-T PHY technology. Typical applications include Audio/Video over Ethernet, Machine Vision, and Enterprise data center, campus, and metro environments.
“ Our collaboration with Aquantia underscores Xilinx's commitment to enable and accelerate the integration of high speed video interfaces with our state-of-the-art programmable devices that increase our customer’s ability to innovate, differentiate, and accelerate time to market of video over IP products,” said Ramesh Iyer, Director of Pro AV and Broadcast Products at Xilinx. “With Ethernet being the most ubiquitous and well accepted networking protocol in the industry, Aquantia’s AQLX107 integrates advanced 5-speed Ethernet PHY with one of the most advanced FPGAs in the market.”
