@SwanOnChips: This can be found in Dr. Gordon Brebner's keynote at ANCS 2012.

Thanks for sharing...

Method of Specification not mentioned
SwanOnChips   8/24/2014 12:52:48 AM
What is not mentioned in this article, and difficult to find, is the object oriented language SDNet uses to specify the functional requirements: PX++

This can be found in Dr. Gordon Brebner's keynote at ANCS 2012. Dr. Brebner is a Distinguished Engineer at Xilinx.

Re: Did anyone else think this was

Well It seems to be not.... At least Xilinx has it on their website up and running:

This really looks like reinventing the wheel with fancy words. Protocol layers are supposed to manage layers of abstraction.

FPGA-based devices revisited
ckachris   4/1/2014 11:16:01 AM
It would be very interesting to see the wide adoption of "softly" defined networks based on FPGAs. 

In the past, there were several research/academic efforts to design adaptive network processing platforms based on FPGAs (e.g. Reconfigurable Network Processing Platforms, Adaptive FPGA for network applications, DyNaCore, etc).

I believe using the proposed platform/framework by Xilinx, and with the wide spread of OpenFlow, now is the right time for FPGA-based network devices to be widely adopted.

The ReUse approach
dimopep   3/31/2014 1:57:28 PM
It's interesting to see how the EDA vendors, and that includes Xilinx, are penetrating the SoC market as a side effect of the IP reusability mantra.

In a way similar to how ARM acceptance changed the semiconductor business the winners of the future might be not the better design houses, but the better integrators.

Today TTM gains more than ever in importance.

Re: OpenFlow?

Rick,  Yes we are supporting Openflow , of course, and by the way we have already demonstrated our ZYNQ SOC family with OPENFLOW as a SDN end point.

Wwhile we support Openflow, we are not tied to any specific southbound API, we can support emerging / proprietary as required / desired (OpenX).

Are they supporting OpenFlow?

The "Southbound API" they show uses a name I have not heard of.
