Xilinx Inc. has uncloaked reference designs that provide customers with single-chip solutions for 4x100G OTN transponder and 200G OTN switching applications. The reference designs, together with the company's All Programmable 3D ICs and SmartCORE IP, give customers a fully featured evaluation platform for the creation and evolution of highly differentiated, high-bandwidth OTN applications, stated the company.

The OTN reference designs are available for evaluation on the Xilinx Virtex-7 VC730 3D IC OTN target platform. The reference designs include a group of comprehensive OS agnostic software APIs to simplify and accelerate the design of All Programmable smarter networks, Xilinx noted.

The 4x100G transponder in a single Virtex-7 1140T 3D IC is a reference design that the company said showcases the world's first single-chip 400G solution. It features a common control plane to manage the four 100G streams. Each 100G stream supports GFEC with statistics, an overhead processor to perform section, path and tandem connection monitoring and an easy to use GUI to evaluate defects and performance metrics, described the company.

The 2x 100G OTN switching on a single Virtex-7 1140T 3D IC is a reference design that demonstrates three Xilinx SmartCORE IP cores including a 100G single-stage multiplexer/demultiplexer, an OIF compliant 100G segmentation and reassembly (SAR) and a 100G ODUMon, a bi-directional IP block used to perform overhead insertion and extraction on up to 80 ODUj channels. These SmartCORE IP cores enable designers to construct a single chip 2x100G MuxMapSAR for Metro OTN and packet optical transport systems (P-OTS). This reference design includes full section, path and six levels of tandem connection monitoring, 100GE client defects, and ODU and client signal replacement, providing sophisticated management capabilities, added Xilinx.
