Advantech, NetLogic Do 40G ATCA

TAIPEI, Taiwan, and SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Advantech, a global manufacturer of telecom computing blades and multi-core network platforms, and NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. [NASDAQ: NETL], a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced their collaboration to deliver the industry's most advanced 40-Gbps AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform using NetLogic Microsystems' XLPTM multi-core, multi-threaded processors with 64 NXCPUsTM, knowledge-based processors, and 10GE PHY solutions.

Advantech's ATCA-7410 is designed to support the new 40-Gbps ATCA standards and is targeted at LTE enhanced packet core (EPC) gateways, service routers, metro ethernet, access aggregation, mobile backhaul systems and network security platforms. Building on the success of its PacketariumTM portfolio that uses NetLogic Microsystems' XLR multi-core processors, the ATCA-7410 extends Advantech's packet processing offering to the ATCA form factor to enable greater scalability and higher availability for OEMs building state-of-the-art networking equipment.

Each ATCA-7410 blade incorporates an impressive 64 NXCPUs from the XLP processor family, 128 knowledge-based processing engines from the NL11k processor family and multiple NLP1342 10GE PHYs to deliver significant advantages in performance, functionality, power and cost. This advanced ATCA system is targeted to meet the needs for Tier One original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to support systems with up to fourteen blades in a chassis to enable scalability to over 500Gbps throughput per chassis.

"The ATCA-7410 design leverages NetLogic Microsystems' best-in-class technologies across the board," said Eddie Lai, director of business development at Advantech. "It represents the breakthrough ATCA product which Tier-1 OEMs are waiting for to perform uncompromised processing on every packet of traffic with minimal latency to ensure predictable network behavior and eliminate bottlenecks".
