Hi Naperlou,

Thanks for your question.  In short, absolutely.  We provide hardware acceleration to handle the portions of network traffic that do not scale.  The acceleration engines are complemented by our Power Architecture (and ARM in the future) cores that allow the platform to be tailored to the system requirements and data flow.  Our solutions scale from 1-24 programmable cores/threads to cover a very broad range of performance and power requirements. 

Best regards,

Derek

Derek, you make a great point.  Specialized processors that can accelerate parts of network processing are always useful.  Assuming that they also have programming capabilities, this makes for a very flexible way to accelerate networking tasks. 

I am wondering if this capability is built into Freescale parts like the QorIQ parts?
