LONDON Tarari Inc., a fabless vendor of security and XML processors, has said it plans to support Opteron processors from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. Opteron processors are used in personal computers and servers.
Tarari (San Diego, Calif.) said its next generation of content processing ASICs would include multiple processing cores and would natively support Opteron processors and the HyperTransport interface.
Tarari said it would support bandwidths from 10-Mbit per second to 10-Gbits per second. The T9000 content processor incorporates dual engines each capable of processing 1.6-Gbits per second and each T9000 can manage up to 4 additional engines, bringing the throughput to over 7-Gbits per second.
“Our combined ability with Tarari to accelerate intensive content processing can enable our OEM customers to significantly enhance the functionality of their systems, and allows them to create outstanding Network Security and XML appliances, blades, and switches,” said Randy Allen, corporate vice president of the server and workstation business at AMD, in a statement issued by Tarari.
Tarari makes cores to perform a number of functions including: grammar processing for XML and other protocols, Zip compression and decompression, UTF8 to UTF16 character conversion, RSA modular exponentiation, DES encryption and decryption, SHA-1 Hashing for signature calculations, and more.
