Altera announced that its Interlaken Look-aside intellectual property (IP) core has been tested and is compatible with Cavium’s NEURON Search Processor. This deployment-ready, pre-verified solution provides networking OEMs a low-latency, high-performance packet interface for use in networking appliances, including routers, switches, firewalls, and security storage.
Altera’s FPGA-based Interlaken IP enables interoperability between a datapath device and a look-aside coprocessor with transfer rates up to 300 Gbps and delivers more than 500 million packets per second performance. The Interlaken Look-Aside IP includes both soft and hardened logic blocks.
Altera and Cavium tested and verified the Interlaken Look-Aside solution using a Stratix V FPGA and a NEURON Search Processor.
Cavium’s NEURON Search Processor family supports up to 1 million IPv4 and IPv6 rules.
