The QDR SRAM Codevelopment Team has announced that the Network Processing Forum (NPF) has adopted key elements of the Quad Data Rate (QDR) interface as the standard for Phase 1 of its Look-Aside Interface (LA-1). QDR SRAM is a communications memory standard for network switches, routers, and other communications applications.

The LA-1 Interface is designed to offload certain tasks from the Network Processing Unit (NPU) and is targeted primarily, though not exclusively, at memory-based lookup coprocessors. QDR SRAM is one of the technologies on which LA-1 is based.

The QDR SRAM Codevelopment Team is further collaborating to define proprietary networking SRAM architecture. Its team members include Cypress, Micron, IDT, NEC, and Samsung.
