Mysticom teams with Mentor Graphics to validate compatibility and rigorous performance capabilities for Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet.

Mysticom and Mentor Graphics has announced rigorous performance capabilities and compatibility with the completion of extensive interoperability testing for both their Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet solutions. The tests confirmed that Mysticom's MY3104 (10G Ethernet PHY) and the Mentor Graphics Ethernet A-XGMAC (10G MAC), provide a cost-effective, high-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection. In addition, Mysticom's MY1104/E (Gigabit Ethernet Quad PHY) and the Mentor Graphics Ethernet PE-GMAC0 (1G MAC) achieved reliable, standard compliant, Ethernet operation with error free transmission. The performance and compatibility guaranteed by the proven Ethernet interoperability tests should help accelerate OEM development time for next generation routers, switches, and other optical networking equipment and reduce time-to-market.

"We are very pleased with the results demonstrated during interoperability testing with Mentor Graphics Ethernet IP," said Wiren Perera vice president of worldwide marketing for Mysticom. "These results provide our customers with a fast track to developing Gigabit and 10 Gigabit solutions in conjunction with technology from an industry leader."

"This technology collaboration with Mysticom addresses the needs of today's highly integrated communications and networking systems," said Michael Kaskowitz, general manager of the Mentor Graphics IP division. "Our industry leading, silicon-proven Ethernet IP, combined with Mysticom's Ethernet PHY, will enable customers to deploy their product development plans with speed and greater reliability."

Mentor Graphics recently acquired the complete line of Ethernet and media access control (MAC) IP group from Alcatel, the industry leader for Ethernet IP, used in 80% of the 10/100 Mbit/s ports and over 50% of the Gigabit Ethernets ports shipping worldwide.

The MY1104/E is a Gigabit Ethernet Quad PHY transceiver with four Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) channels that operate from 1.0 to 1.25 Gbps (4 X 1.25 Gbps). The MY1104/E features the industry's lowest power consumption (0.6W), an extended operating temperature range (-40C to +85C), clock compensation and recovery along with multiple self- testability options on each channel.

The MY3104 is a performance-enhanced 10 Gigabit Ethernet PHY Transceiver intended for port side, backplane, and rack-to-rack applications. The MY3104 features an optional enhanced mode, which integrates forward error correction (FEC) on each channel (4 X 3.125Gbps) and greatly improves the bit error rate (BER) to better than 10-17.
