NetLogic Microsystems Inc. releases NL10k knowledge-based processors to expand the IPv6 processing portfolio for next-generation switches and routers.

Designed using the advanced 40nm process node, the NL10k knowledge-based processor boasts a capability of 160 crore decisions per second of IPv6 processing. It is compatible with older generations of knowledge-based processors, making an easy and upgrade path for OEMs.

Each processor consists of 128 high-performance knowledge-based processing engines and an enhanced Intelligent Load Balancing Engine (ILBE) for the allocation of multiple tasks and the management of communications among all the 128 knowledge-based processing engines.

Integrated advanced Sahasra Algorithmic Engines allow the ILBE and the knowledge-based processing engines to reduce the power consumption of search processing. Also integrated is a Range Encoding Engine, which uses advanced one-hot and fence encoding algorithms to allow customers to effectively double the efficiency of performing port range inspection, an integral part of packet classification.

TheNL10k knowledge-based processor offers up to 150Gbit/s of I/O bandwidth and supports 2,56,000 IPv6 addresses or 10 lakh IPv4 addresses.
