Packet Processor Supports 20-Gbps Data Rates

Supporting full-duplex data rates of 20 Gbps, said to be double that of competing devices, the iFlow packet processor (iPP) is designed for metropolitan/enterprise Gigabit Ethernet and packet-over-SONET applications. This latest addition to the iFlow DP3 family can support Layer 2 through 7 switching and routing of up to 20 full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet ports simultaneously. In addition, designs using the iPP are reported to use one-third the number of components and consume less than half the power of designs using comparable devices on the market. Other features include speeds up to 333 MHz, 32 multi-threaded packet processors, buffered memory, 4 Mb of scratch pad memory, all instruction RAM, and a 1 Kx72-bit general purpose ternary CAM. No external memory is required for typical operation. Price is $1,000 each in high quantities. SILICON ACCESS NETWORKS, San Jose, CA. (408) 545-1100.
