SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISSI) , a leader in advanced memory and network IC solutions, today launched the NuCAM line of algorithm-based products made available for communication networking systems. ISSI was the first company in the industry to offer a 533 MSPS (million searches per second) CAM-based multi-search intelligent processor and its patent-pending fine granularity intelligent CAMtile architecture for embedded purposes. Now it is offering the first in a line of algorithm-based products specifically targeting the table lookup bottleneck in high performance communication network (switch/router) systems. System and chipset vendors looking to support very large network table look-ups can now do so at a fraction of the power and cost of traditional CAM-based solutions.

The IS52VV100 longest prefix match (LPM) search processor, the first member of the NuCAM product line, is the only such match search solution that efficiently handles both the look-up speeds and the table-entry density required for next generation networking systems. The product takes advantage of ISSI's patent-pending algorithmic techniques utilizing embedded memory and commodity SRAMs and DRAMs.

"ISSI's NuCAM product line offers the networking community an innovative alternative to the CAM by providing a low cost, low power solution for large database tables where the cost and power consumption of a CAM can be prohibitive," said Nelson Chow, ISSI's Senior Director of Network Search Products.
