SPP1148 booth: Network processors

Thilo Pionteck, Roman Koch, Carsten Albrecht, Erik Maehle, Michael Meitinger, Rainer Ohlendorf, Thomas Wild, Andreas Herkersdorf


Traditional design of network processors is complicated by two conflicting demands, flexibility and performance. On the one side, network processors should be flexible enough to adapt to changing protocols and varying traffic profiles, on the other side they have to cope with increasing data rates of network links. This demonstrator shows that runtime re-configurable systems have the potential to optimise both criteria without affecting each other negatively. The demonstrator addresses edge router applications and consists of two independently developed subsystems, the FlexPath NP architecture designed at the TU München and the Dyna-CORE architecture designed at the University of Lübeck.
