IDT Supports Intel Network Processors with NSE Development Board

9/19/2003 - IDTTM (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company and leading provider of network search engines (NSEs), extended its portfolio of comprehensive NSE solutions with the introduction of its 75KTA162134 development board designed to work seamlessly with the newest development platforms for Intel network processors. The development board features the IDT 75K62134 NSE with an integrated Look-Aside (LA-1) interface and connects glue-lessly to the Intel® IXDP2401, IXDP2801 and IXDP2851 network processor development platforms that support the Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (AdvancedTCA) specification. The new IDT development board will be featured at the Intel Developer Forum, San Jose, Calif., booth #309. IDT is an Associate Member with the Intel® Communications Alliance, a community of communications and embedded developers and solutions providers.

IDT provides the broadest and deepest portfolio of NSE solutions for the Intel network processor development environment, including the industry’s first 256Kx36 NSE with an integrated LA-1 interface and comprehensive hardware and software development tools. Designers can begin development early in the design cycle through the use of the IDT system-level architecture model (SLAM), a cycle- and data-accurate simulation model that allows for system optimization leading to reduced development costs and faster time to market. They also have access to a complete library of control plane and data plane software that includes the initialization, management and searching (IMS) code, diagnostic code, data plane macros and application code, which results in an improvement in system performance and accelerated application software development/debug through full speed 200 MHz hardware execution.

“Our new development platforms provide the flexibility our customers need by using a modular architecture and open standards such as AdvancedTCA,” said Doug Davis, general manager, Intel Network Processor Division. “IDT support of the Network Processor Forum LA-1 specification with the new NSE development board simplifies the designers’ time to market and enables re-use of code on three different network processors.”

“IDT is pleased to deliver a breadth of solutions that work within the various Intel network processor development environments,” said Scott Sarnikowski, vice president and co-general manager of the IDT IP co-processor division. “Our latest offering for the new Intel development platforms complements our existing solutions for the Intel IXDP2400, IXDP2800 and IXDP2850 environments. We are proud to support the Intel initiative for the AdvancedTCA standard and remain committed to providing flexible NSE solutions and development tools that meet the needs of our mutual customers.”

IDT IP Co-Processor Solutions
IDT is the leading provider of NSEs and content inspection engines that accelerate packet processing and enable intelligent application management in next-generation networking equipment. IDT is recognized by RHK, Inc. and International Data Corporation (IDC) as the technology leader, and as the volume shipment leader of network search engines. Based on the integration of content addressable memory (CAM) and high-performance logic, the IDT NSEs support network processors and ASICs to accelerate packet classification and forwarding in core, metro and access networks. IDT offers the industry’s highest-performance NSE operating up to 250 MHz and the first NSE with an integrated LA-1 interface, and was the first vendor to introduce search widths up to 576 bits. The IDT NSE portfolio includes a custom family of devices, as well as NSEs with general-purpose and glue-less interfaces to network processors. The IDT 256Kx36 (128Kx72) network search engine received the EDN Top 100 Products Award of 2002.

The IDT content inspection engines are capable of parsing and classifying data up to Layer 7, a functionality that allows for inspection of content in both the packet header and payload, resulting in more intelligent packet processing at wire speed. IDT is an active member and contributor to the Network Processor Forum (NPF) and the LA interface definition, and serves as chairman of the NPF board.
