We design a specific Ethernet network interface card (NIC) for accelerating video delivery by offloading the overheads of protocol headers identification/appending and CRC/checksums calculation, and speeding video bit streams with a dedicated video interface. Compared with the same operations of a 50 MHz ARM micro-controller, the NIC system saves 47,000 ns per frame. This NIC card also supports the coexistence of the IPv4 and IPv6 standard for the future extension. Both FPGA prototyping and 0.35 μm cell-based design of the specific NIC system are given.
