Santa Clara, Calif., Jan 20, 2015 – Achronix Semiconductor Corporation today announced that Telesoft Technologies has selected Achronix Speedster22i HD1000 FPGAs for the MPAC6200, industry’s first dual 100GbE PCIe card for cyber security, monitoring and analytics.
Based on Intel’s 22nm Tri-Gate technology, Speedster22i devices contain a wide range of embedded hard IP including 100G Ethernet, Interlaken, PCI Express Gen3 with integrated DMA engine and DDR3. This range of hard IP, combined with industry-leading density and cost, enables significant advantages in 100G optical networking applications. The combination of robust, hardened IP together with 86 Mbits of on-chip memory, were key aspects in Telesoft’s selection of the Speedster22i device.
“Use of Speedster22i FPGAs has considerably accelerated our product development cycle time”, said Rob Downham, Chairman of Telesoft. “In previous FPGA projects the integration of 100G Ethernet, Interlaken, PCI Express Gen3 and DDR3 soft IP blocks took many months of effort that was not required with the Achronix solution.” Downham continued, “We also gained back 50 per cent of the logic fabric as the soft IP was moved to Speedster22i hard IP.”
Speedster22i FPGAs increase the time-to-market, cost and power advantages, especially in real time line rate applications such as the Telesoft TUNA Recorder for capturing selected traffic from 100GbE, and Telesoft Front End Filter to connect existing 10GbE monitoring assets to 100GbE infrastructure.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Telesoft Technologies, a 100GbE market leader,” said Robert Blake, CEO, Achronix Semiconductor. “The embedded hard IP in Speedster22i HD FPGAs eliminates the cost of purchasing, integrating, closing timing and testing the functions that are required when soft IP is used.”
