The MP1000TX Gigabit Ethernet Daughter Board adds Gigabit Ethernet capabilities to the line of FPGA based emulation products available from the Dini Group (DN3000K10 series). The MP1000TX features the Intel LXT1000 Gigabit Ethernet transceiver for reliable full and half-duplex ethernet connectivity at speeds up to 1000Mbps with fallback support to 10 and 100 Mbps. The on-board Xilinx XC95144XL configures the LXT1000 at startup and synchronizes the transfer of data through the 200-pin Berg connector which mates to any of the DN3000K10(S) products. Any interface and configuration requirements to the FPGA are easily satisfied with the programmable Xilinx CPLD. The MP1000TX Daughter Board can be used with any of the supported FPGA based emulation products to develop and emulate network processing hardware, including high speed packet-processing at up to gigabit line rates.
