Force Computers announces its CPCI-920/922, a next-generation CPCI/PICMG 2.16 network processor blade for Internet Protocol (IP) packet-processing applications in telecommunications and data communications.
The CPCI-920/922 offers a single or dual Intel IXP2400 network processor design for scalable performance and cost, and NPF-compliant co-processor and media mezzanine interfaces. It maximizes available IP processing performance for 2-4Gbit/s data rate packet processing.
The blade is easily packaged within PICMG 2.16 CompactPCI Packet-Switching Backplane (cPSB) systems such as Force's GigE-capable Centellis CO 21 Kx or Modusys 4745P. Complete and unique IP packet processing approaches, such as network appliances and scalable telecom IP converging infrastructure platforms can quickly be deployed, compared to using ASICs.
As an extension of Force's IXP network processor product family, the CPCI-920/922 provides OEMs with application-specific flexibility and configurability. It provides performance and cost scaling in a single industry standard building block.
