Flow processors developer Netronome said it will manufacture its next-generation flow processors on Intel's 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology.

A joint development and manufacturing engagement model will also enable Netronome to take full advantage of Intel tools, processes, and proprietary modelling capabilities.

"Intel's 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology and 22nm manufacturing process provides significant benefits over legacy planar designs," said Jim Finnegan, senior vice president, engineering, Netronome. "As a result, our next generation flow processors will be several generations ahead of other communications processors, allowing Netronome to deliver up to 10-times the performance with more than triple the energy efficiency."

Netronome's flow processors (NFP) bring breakthrough performance to a broad range of network, security and content processing applications used in high end networks with speeds up to 100Gbps.

"Access to the Intel Custom Foundry is a key differentiator for Netronome and enables them to take advantage of the industry-leading performance and power efficiency of Intel's 22nm 3-D Tri-Gate technology," said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst, The Linley Group.

Netronome's next-generation of processors based on Intel's 22nm process and 3-D Tri-Gate transistors will sample in 2013.
