Conemtech introduced the M50-34 module for high accuracy time and frequency synchronization. The M50-34 enables any device with an Ethernet interface to synchronize to a PTP master clock in the network at 100ns accuracy by just re-wiring the Ethernet interface. The M50-34 reduces the components count, simplifies the layout and lowers the board manufacturing cost for products requiring external packet based synchronization. The M50-34 will be sampling by end of this month.
Netronome rolled out the NFP-3240 network flow processor. The NFP-3240 processor is designed for tight coupling with multicore Intel processors to accelerate network, security and content processing to 40 and 100 Gbps. The NFP-32xx family is available in a range of price and performance options for 10, 40 and 100 Gbps designs. Configuration options span from 16 to 40 cores, operating at 1.0 or 1.4GHz, with optional cryptography support. The NFP-32xx network flow processors are sampling now with general availability in mid-2010. Prices start at $275.
