Anonymous Subscriber Messaging (ASM)
The New Wave Design and Verification (New Wave DV) Fibre Channel Anonymous Subscriber Messaging (FC-ASM) core provides a complete hardware IP solution for the FC-ASM protocol.
The core provides full FC compliance, hardware-based message label filtering, hardware mapping of message label to host memory, and complete offload of ASM handling including: Transmit messages, Receive messages, CSU frames, DMA controller, frame building/checking, and CRC generation/checking.
The host interface to the core can be AXI or PCIe. The core is built for dropping into an FPGA and providing the complete design from processor interface to FC-ASM network interface.
This core is targeted towards applications in aerospace and has been used on a wide range of parts at varying operating rates. The core comes with test-benches and example code, making design integration a straightforward task.
Evaluation versions of the FC-ASM IP core are available and New Wave DV has a set of standard form-factor boards featuring FPGAs, Fibre Channel optics, and off-the-shelf reference designs for quick evaluation of the IP core.
