Arrive's Pseudowire CodeChip product line offers a family of complete pseudowire and mobile backhaul CodeChip devices. Arrive provides total solutions in groupings of 1 to 16 DS1/E1/J1 or 1 to 32 DS1/E1/J1 lines; aggregation nodes with up to 84/63 DS1/E1 lines; high-density nodes with 336/252 DS1/E1 lines; or very dense nodes with 1344/1008 DS1/E1/J1 lines. The aggregation and higher density nodes use SONET/SDH interfaces for service side connection. Arrive's CodeChips are provided in fully complete Bitstream format 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 Altera devices that are pre-selected based on the mix of features requested.


  • 4xOC-12/STM-4 or 1xOC-48/STM-16 interfaces at service side
  • Application specific high-level API software driver
  • ACR/DCR clock recovery algorithm for SAToP and CESoPSN, meets ITU G.8261, G.823, G.824 and MEF22
  • 4xGbE interface or 1x10GbE interface or 1xQSGMII interface
  • PDH pseudowire (SAToP and CESoPSN) and SONET/SDH pseudowire (CEP) as per RFC4553, RFC5086, RFC4842
