IDT introduces IP co-processor product portfolio

May 15, 2001
May 15, 2001--IDT (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.) announced its first commercially available Internet protocol (IP) co-processor product portfolio that enables up to OC-768 wire speed to support ever-increasing packet processing requirements.

IDT (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.) announced its first commercially available Internet protocol (IP) co-processor product portfolio that enables up to OC-768 wire speed to support ever-increasing packet processing requirements.

IDT's IP co-processors assist network processors and application specific integrated circuits (ASICs) to accelerate deep packet classification and packet forwarding in applications such as local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) switches, routers and ATM switches in enterprise/carrier-class networks; core switches in wireless/mobile networks and remote access concentrators (RACs) in access networks.

IDT's IP co-processor product offerings will include a 32Kx72 full-ternary device, a 64Kx72 binary device, a 64Kx72 full-ternary device and a 128Kx72 full-ternary device. These IP co-processors are high-performance, low-power, feature-rich solutions that enable multi-dimensional header parsing and wire-speed packet processing. IDT's highest-performance IP co-processor will perform up to 100 million table lookups per second.

The new devices augment IDT's first IP co-processor, a custom product designed for Cisco's Catalyst family of multi-layer switches, introduced in September 2000. With this product, IDT is the current volume shipment leader of IP co-processors in the market today. IDT's commercially available IP co-processors are currently in adoption in the high-speed switching and routing applications of leading communications companies, including NEC.

IDT's IP co-processor products, which integrate content addressable memory (CAM) technology with high-performance logic, enable deep packet classification and packet forwarding. These devices provide classification features that allow for policy-based routing, content-aware switching, load balancing and class of service (CoS). IDT's IP co- processors enable these functions by providing a flexible search width, allowing the user to configure the search to support x72-widths for deep route table entry in forwarding applications, and larger widths of x144 and x288 for deeper packet classification. The devices assist in speeding classification functions by providing the capability to search at the maximum sustained rate. IP co-processors also support Internet protocol version four (IPv4) and IPv6 standards, allowing for the extension of IP addresses up to 128 bits long.
