IDT Introduces New Search Accelerators, Providing Increased Search Performance, Lower Power and Higher Density
10-, 20-, and 40-Mbit Packet Header Processing Solutions Extend Industry-Leading IDT Performance to 1.2 Billion Searches per Second
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 02, 2008 – IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced new additions to its family of application-optimized search accelerator solutions. Introduced today is the IDT 75S10000B search accelerator series offering high-performance, low-power, cost-effective packet header processing solutions for enhanced table support up to 40-Mbit in enterprise-, metro- and carrier-class switches and routers. The new devices extend the industry-leading IDT search performance to 1.2 billion searches per second, enabling customers to solve complex network challenges, such as quad-play-ready network applications, increasing security and access control, and support of broader address spaces, while still maintaining high availability bandwidth at line rates of up to 40Gbps and beyond.
IDT customers already using the 75S10000A search accelerator series in their production designs can easily adopt the new series of devices because they are pin and software compatible with the existing family members, enabling customers to preserve their hardware and software investments. The 75S10000B series also introduces flexible results management, which enables IDT customers to optimize their packet processing solutions around their search performance needs, allowing up to a 20 percent reduction in interface pin count to the search complex. The new series of IDT search accelerators responds to customer demands by maintaining compatibility with the existing IDT family of search accelerators while providing the flexibility to increase search performance and include an optimized search interface.
“IDT is pleased to announce the expansion of our industry-leading search accelerator product family,” stated Derek Dicker, vice president and general manager for the IDT IP Co-processor division. “This new series of devices takes the architecture that first delivered 1BSPS to the industry and delivers another 20 percent increase in performance and a 100 percent increase in density, while simultaneously enabling new innovative features, flexible results management and current surge control that were created from interaction with our lead customers. For our numerous customers that are in production with our previously-announced search accelerator products, we also offer the potential for them to upgrade their systems by delivering footprint- and software-compatible versions of these new products. We are quite happy with the momentum the search accelerator product family has achieved and expect that this new series of devices will help increase that momentum.”
As with all members of the IDT search accelerator family, the 75S10000B devices implement enhanced error detection and correction (ECC). ECC is used to ensure data integrity while providing the most reliable search solution in the market. IDT implements dedicated ECC and parity bits that preserve a true 80-bit data interface. To ensure the thermal requirements of customers are met, the devices also offer advanced power-saving features, such as dynamic database management and intelligent pipelined search. These techniques can be used in tandem to selectively reduce the number of entries being searched during table look-ups, reducing power consumption by up to 75 percent. The new series also introduces current surge control, an advanced power management technique that allows the user to minimize voltage droop on the core power supply during a search, enabling improved signal integrity within the customer’s application.
As with the 75S10000A family, the new 75S10000B search accelerators come with the same highly integrated software package and evaluation system that enable easy programming and early testing. This reduces implementation costs, shortens time to market and protects the customer’s software investment. The new devices are also strongly supported by a diverse ecosystem of network processor and Ethernet switch vendors that have adopted the unique interface from IDT to ensure seamless interoperability.
