IDT Network Search Engine Helps Netronome Boost Performance in IA/x86-Based Network and Security Applications

Quickly Enables Application-Ready Platform Solutions and Reduces Time to Market for OEM Customers

SAN JOSE, Calif., – January 30, 2007 – IDT(Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQIDTI), a leading provider of vital semiconductor solutions, today announced that the IDT LA-1 network search engine (NSE) has been exclusively selected by Netronome Systems Inc. for use on the NFE-i8000 network acceleration card.  The 75K62134 NSE from IDT has been integrated into Netronome’s Open Appliance™, which combines software and hardware, to quickly enable content flow analysis, deep packet inspection, security processing and virtual machine technologies for use in network appliances and switches reducing time to market for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) customers.

“Netronome and IDT have been working closely together since 2005.  When we were looking for a high speed, high capacity network search engine for our NFE-i8000, we naturally turned to IDT,” said Mike Benson, Vice President of Engineering at Netronome.  “The IDT NSE was truly the best fit for our NFE-i8000 because it provides the performance boost needed to enable our NFE-i8000 to deliver 4Gbps of flow classification with high-performance encryption in IA/x86-based network and security applications.”

The Netronome NFE-i8000 acceleration card provides a high performance platform for flow acceleration and flow classification and is an ideal platform for security and network appliance vendors to improve performance while reducing time to market.  The IDT network search engine works synergistically to offload packet classification allowing multi gigabit performance for customer applications. 

IDT is extremely pleased to have Netronome select our LA-1 NSE for its Netronome Flow Engine,” said Derek Dicker, co-general manager for the IDT IP co-processor division.  “Designed for OEMs, Netronome’s NFE-i8000 can be used to increase performance of existing applications or as an easy-to-use development environment enabling users to quickly and efficiently develop high performance networking and security applications.  With the inclusion of our LA-1 NSE, the NFE-i8000 hardware delivers a compelling, pre-integrated solution to boost performance in IA/x86-based network and security applications as well as speed time to market by reducing development time for new or upgraded applications.”
