1394b AS5643 IP Core

The New Wave Design and Verification (New Wave DV) 1394b AS5643 IP core provides a complete hardware IP solution for the 1394b AS5643 protocol.

The core provides hardware based AS5643 message label filtering, hardware mapping of AS5643 message label to host memory, and complete offload of 1394 AS5643 message handling including: Asynchronous Transmit, Isochronous Receive, STOF receive/transmit handling, STOF regulated transmit functions, Self ID operations, vertical parity, 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 1394b AS5643 network interface.
