Is GigE operating on top of Ethernet ? And is it based on TCP/IP protocol as well?

Hello, Just to clarify, we're talking about GigE Vision as a high-level protocol running on top of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE). The GigE Vision protocol uses UDP (which of course is running on top of IP, which is on top of Gigabit Ethernet). By using UDP, we decrease the overhead incurred when transmitting data. We also decrease the latency and jitter by using UDP. Because UDP doesn't have any built-in delivery guarantees, the GigE Vision protocol specifies a retransmission scheme. Hope this answers your question.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for todays commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
