Devices offer search performance of up to one billion searches per second, which is four times the speed of its previous devices.
Also new with this device is an error correction code feature which is designed to address potential soft errors. These are typically caused when neutrons in the earth’s atmosphere collide with electronics systems. These soft errors can cause a system to malfunction or act unpredictably.
The device achieves this search rate by supporting four simultaneous lookups in one cycle with a core search rate of 250 million searches per second. The chip also supports an 80-bit base search width that supports IPv6 by offering a 320-bit search width to accommodate a 296-bit wide IPv6 5-tuple look-up.
Initial products are expected to include a high-speed transceiver logic (HSTL) interface to Asics and FPGAs.
