This programmable engine is designed to offload TCP inbound processing at wire speed for 10-Gb/s Ethernet, supporting 64-byte minimum packet size. This prototype chip employs a high-speed core and a specialized instruction set. It includes hardware support for dynamically reordering out-of-order packets. In a 90-nm CMOS process, the 8-mm2 experimental chip has 460 K transistors. First silicon has been validated to be fully functional and achieves 9.64-Gb/s packet processing performance at 1.72 V and consumes 6.39 W.
