Mentor Graphics Corp. disclosed that LSI Logic has licensed Mentor's 10/100/1000 Ethernet media access controller (MAC) IP core.

The 10/100/1000 MAC core is a "high adoption" rate core being driven by the need for network connectivity in consumer, storage and embedded systems. In the traditional enterprise networking space, growing port density requirements are quickly accelerating the Gigabit Ethernet adoption rate.

"This Ethernet MAC IP provides designers with more time to concentrate on product differentiation and delivering products to market before their competitors," said Terry Pence, communications marketing manager, LSI Logic, "This IP from Mentor Graphics meets our stringent criteria, and we are pleased to offer versions based on this industry-leading core to our mutual customers for both ASIC and RapidChip Platform ASIC implementations," Pence added.

Mentor Graphics continues to provide third-party IP with cores supporting major communications protocols, including Ethernet 802.3, USB 2.0, USB On-the-Go, Parallel and Serial ATA, and PCI.
