AUGUST 23, 2010 -- Advantech, a global manufacturer of telecom computing blades and multi-core network platforms, and semiconductor electronics supplier NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. will collaborate to deliver a 40-Gbps AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform using NetLogic Microsystems’ XLP multi-core, multi-threaded processors with 64 NXCPUs, knowledge-based processors, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet PHY devices.

AUGUST 23, 2010 -- Advantech, a global manufacturer of telecom computing blades and multi-core network platforms, and semiconductor electronics supplier NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETL) will collaborate to deliver a 40-Gbps AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform using NetLogic Microsystems’ XLP multi-core, multi-threaded processors with 64 NXCPUs, knowledge-based processors, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet PHY devices.

Advantech’s ATCA-7410 is designed to support the new 40-Gbps ATCA standards and is targeted at LTE enhanced packet core (EPC) gateways, service routers, metro Ethernet, access aggregation, mobile backhaul systems, and network security platforms. Building on its Packetarium portfolio that uses NetLogic Microsystems’ XLR multi-core processors, the ATCA-7410 extends Advantech’s packet processing offering to the ATCA form factor.

Each ATCA-7410 blade incorporates 64 NXCPUs from the XLP processor family, 128 knowledge-based processing engines from the NL11k processor family, and multiple NLP1342 10GE PHYs. This advanced ATCA system is targeted to meet the needs for Tier 1 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support systems with up to 14 blades in a chassis to enable scalability to over 500-Gbps throughput per chassis.

Advantech’s ATCA-7410 platforms will sample in the fourth quarter of 2010.
