Abstract

With the growing demands of home networking, the existing networking technologies couldn’t satisfy user expectations any more. Today networking technologies is interested that don’t need new cable and have high bandwidth. HomePNA (Home Phoneline Networking Alliance) is a solution.HomePNA3.0 and Ethernet was similar in MAC sublayer; hence, HomePNA3.0/Ethernet reconfigurable implementation was appeared cost-effective. But the difference between HomePNA3.1 and Ethernet increased.In this paper, we propose new reconfigurable hybrid architecture. We implement it in behavioural level using VHDL language. Our implementation was able to have HomePNA3.1 and Ethernet MACs together. Our synthesis show that our implementation decrease number of logical element by 32%.
