Serial FPDP (sFPDP)


sFPDP IP Core is based on ANSI/VITA 17.1-2003 Standards. This IP core provides a relatively simple protocol using maximum available data throughput with a minimum protocol for point-to-point data links. sFPDP links support a wide range of physical interfaces with the most common option being 2.5 gigabits per second multimode fiber.
