Gigabit Serial Link Controller IP core

The Gigabit Serial Link Controller (GSLC) IP implements the digital interface for both simple and complex communication protocols based on the most used Serializer/Deserializer (SERDES) available on the market.
The GSLC can be customised to be compatible with a very simple hand-shake/flow control protocol or with a more complex communication standard including FDIR and Quality-of-Service such as SpaceFIbre.
The GSLC IP is suitable both for FPGA and ASIC technology depending on the application demand.
