Configurable Port Processor Increases Flexibility in the Protocol Processing Area

The limitation in networking is no longer only the physical transmission media but also the end equipment, which has to process the protocol control fields. In most end terminals this processing has been performed by the main processor, but different types of co-processor have lately appeared to relieve it from this task. These co-processors have high power consumption since they are based on a RISC core. Instead ASIC:s can be used, but they lack flexibility and are specific for only one single protocol. It is clear that a new approach is needed.
