At the SUPERCOMM 2005 communications conference programmable logic provider Xilinx Inc. has demonstrated its 10Gbps enabled packet processing solution, developed with CorEdge Networks and Yamaichi Electronics.

Based on a Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA, the design platform is aimed to drive down communications system design costs and accelerate time-to-market using an industry standard ATCA architecture. The solution is expected to enable rapid deployment of converged voice, data and video platforms aimed at the digital consumer market.

The jointly developed platform includes the industry's first reprogrammable Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) and cutaway AMC carrier and is capable of switching Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet channels. The platform provides system designers with the flexibility to support various applications using a single AMC carrier card. The platform also enables a more efficient use of the network and provides key features such as multi-protocol support and enhanced QoS and policy-based networking.

"Early adopters of ATCA-based solutions need the flexibility to update and upgrade their systems to address changing market needs", said Will Chu, president of CorEdge Networks. "By instantiating both our high-performance communications engine and non-blocking, cut through, low latency 40 Gigabit switch fabric in the Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA, we are delivering a high performance platform with programmable flexibility."

"The solution supports a variety of interfaces on the line side, mezzanine/chip-to-chip, and backplane side, enabling a single solution to be configured to support multiple interfaces and to switch multiple protocols, depending on customer requirements," added Chu.
