Sorry, this is a search engine, not a network processor. Although the NLA12000 is more complex than a TCAM, it is still a device optimized for a narrow set of uses. A network processor, in comparison, is customer-programmable (i.e., a real processor) and can address different functions in different designs depending on its software.

IP layer processing has to be independent of IPv4 and IPv6. I do not understand what is special in IPv6 routing alone in this press release.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
