SAN JOSE, Calif. & NETANYA, Israel -- HyWire Ltd. today introduced the lowest cost search engine products that perform forwarding, classification, billing, accounting and security for next generation routers and switchers. The company's HyCognito family of products are soft core and embedded-array based versions of HyWire's Search Engine Managers (SEMs) - deterministic hardware processing devices, specialized to perform the company's patented algorithms and capable of running up to 400 million searches per second (Msps). By combining the SEMs with industry-standard DRAMs, HyWire supports huge search and classification tables at the lowest possible cost. The company's technology overcomes bandwidth issues associated with DRAMS, thus providing TCAM level, or better performance. Further cost savings are achieved by integrating the associated data and counter/timer circuitry into the DRAM, reducing power consumption, chip count and board space. The first two HyCognito family members are a soft core, targeted for lower speed, cost sensitive designs, and an embedded-array-based application specific standard product (ASSP), targeted for designs supporting several million deep IPv6 tables running over and above full duplex 10GE/OC192. HyWire is the first company to offer search engines that fit into small FPGAs, gate arrays, or system-on-a-chip (SOCs). Because the customer licenses the soft core, he has the flexibility to pick the "media" that provides the best cost/performance option and efficiently integrate it with other selected IP. He can now utilize this technology to quickly move into targeted markets without exposing his company's IP to outside sources. This is especially applicable for low volume, cost-sensitive designs. HyWire utilized embedded gate array devices to provide a high-end ASSP option. The ASSP also combines with DRAMs to provide enormous (several million entries), IPv4 or IPv6 forwarding tables that can be searched up to 400 Msps. HyWire Ltd.
