"Our existing series of IPs and solutions have been delivering very high performance and cost-effective systems for the most complex networks."
Santa Clara - Intilop, Inc. the provider of low latency networking IP building blocks and systems, has announced the release of its new Ultra-Low latency 4th Gen 10G Nano-TOE.
The Nano-TOE IP-Core aims to deliver latency measured at 76 nanoseconds at 100% 10G line-rate at full duplex. Its Full TCP Offload is fully compliant with IEEE802.3 specifications and required RFCs of the TCP/IP protocol. It uses Streaming FIFO interface for data and configuration is done via industry standard AXI/PLB and other CPU Interfaces that allow drop-in integration with Altera, Xilinx, Tabula FPGA devices and ASICs.
The Nano-TOE IP-Core series implements many key features in pure hardware such as; IPv4, ARP, ICMP, VLAN, Jumbo frames up to 9K bytes plus many more options. The standard Core supports up to 256 concurrent TCP sessions which can be scaled down or up depending upon available FPGA resources and user design requirements. In addition, protocols filtering with partial or full bypass are supported. Many internal or external memory interfaces e.g. DDR, QDR are also available. Many TCP protocol and several performance level features are fully customizable as design options, e.g. scalable size of Rx and Tx FIFOs, more than 256 sessions, multiple TOEs in a single FPGA or adjacent FPGAs, selective ACKs, Slow Start etc.
The Nano-TOE is also pre-integrated with Intilop's 20-nanosecond EMAC as an IP-Core bundle that can deliver latency of 96 nanoseconds for the EMAC's input to TOE User_FIFO out. Moreover, the Nano-TOE is also available as pre-integrated full system with Intilop's PCIe/DMA IP block. An optimized version of which can deliver a 10G total system wire to user-space latency close to 1 us. Finally, the Nano-TOE's scalable architecture is designed to allow upgrade/migration path to 40G networks and beyond.
"Our Nano-TOE IP Core and solutions extend our leadership in the industry. Our existing series of IPs and solutions have been delivering very high performance and cost-effective systems for the most complex networks out there, and this translates into tremendous ROI and unmatched performance edge for our customers", says Kelly Masood, Intilop's CTO.
