sFPDP IP Core is based on ANSI/VITA 17.1-2003 Standards. This IP core provides a relatively simple protocol using maximum available data throughput with a minimum protocol for point-to-point data links. sFPDP links support a wide range of physical interfaces with the most common option being 2.5 gigabits per second multimode fiber.

    Altera Stratix IV Logic Element combinational - 660 Logic Element Registers - 550 Embedded Multipliers 9 bit Elements - 8

    Getting Started

    1. This intellectual property core can be implemented on any transceiver based Xilinx/Altera/Lattice FPGAs. 2. Serial Front Panel Data Port (sFPDP) IP core for FPGA is based on the ANSI/VITA 17.1-2003 standard. 3. The Serial FPDP standard supports three data rates: 1.0625 Gbaud, 2.125 Gbaud, and 2.500 Gbaud.
