Arrive G.Fast Switch Codechip provides two uplink ports up to 10 Gb/s and four G.999.1 ports at rate of up to 2.5 Gb/s. The FPGA-based SoC solution and external front-end devices can help to make quick-to-market distribution point equipment, specifically for Fiber-to-the-Distribution-Point (FTTdp) or to bring gigabit speeds to multiple dwelling unit (MDU) applications in access networks.
Arrive’s CodeChips are provided in fully complete bitstream or encrypted netlist format along with firmware device driver/software API packages, BSP, schematic and layout reference design files, design reviews, board testing and support from initial project definition to mass production. The CodeChip bitstreams and encrypted netlists are targeted to specific FPGA devices that are selected based on the mix of features requested and customer preference.
CodeChips are provided with CodeChip API as a single API software driver for all CodeChip variants. CodeChip API supports protocol stack handling. For customers who want to re-use their investment on existing software, Arrive supports migration from customer’s existing software for re-use with CodeChip solutions.
