Our zero-copy ATM Memory-Integrated Network interface targets 1-Gbps bandwidth with 1.2-μs latency for applications that need to send or receive data at very frequent intervals. Applications can send or receive packets without operating system support, initiate packet transmission with one memory write, and determine packet arrival. At the same time the operating system can use MINI for communications and for supporting standard networking software. Simulations show MINI "bounces" a single ATM cell in a round-trip time of 3.9 μs at 10 Mbytes/s.
