Integrated Device Technology Inc. disclosed that it has begun volume production of its RoHS-compliant flip-chip packaged monolithic 512Kx36 (18Mb) and 256Kx36 (9Mb) network search engines (NSEs) with dual Network Processor Forum (npf) Look Aside (LA-1) interfaces.

By offering these NSEs in RoHS-compliant flip-chip packaging, said IDT, they are enabling designers of telecommunications equipment to reach line rate performance up to OC-192 and beyond, while at the same time meeting new environmental regulations regarding lead-free products. "Today, we are pleased to proclaim that our entire product portfolio is RoHS compliant," said Anne Katz, VP of worldwide assembly and test at IDT. "We believe it is globally essential for the semiconductor industry to provide environmentally safe components for electronics systems. Leveraging our extensive expertise in environmental compliance, coupled with our superior technical knowledge, we are able to offer our customers the best of both worldsour superior network search engine technology in RoHS-compliant flip-chip packagingenabling them to stay on the leading edge of performance in an environmentally responsible manner."

Operating at 250MS/s, the 512Kx36 (75K72234) and 256Kx36 (75K62234) NSEs offer fully integrated LA-1 compliant interfaces to allow a seamless connection between the NSE and the network processing unit (NPU), including AMCC's nP3700 NPUs, and Intel's IXP2400, IXP2800 and IXP2850 NPUs.

Similar to existing devices within the IDT portfolio, the NSEs with dual LA-1 interfaces offer application-support features, such as dynamic database management for increased power savings and simultaneous multi-database lookup (SMDL), enabling multiple packet searches up to 250MSPS.
