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?

FPGAs are the glue logic in today's systems, but what they glue together are a variety of diverse sub-systems with different interface requirements.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Procurement actually means well. There is no question that procurement can do a better job of phrasing their questions or making connections between engineering’s goals and the processes underway. And if you are using the right deciphering code, the result can live up to -- or surpass -- your expectations.
Internal combustion engines are ruling power generation applications even today, and improvising them to churn out every slice of power is still an area of research for the engineering community.
If you are interested in adding FPGA technology to you engineering toolkit, grab some free tools and an evaluation kit and get started on your own FPGA project. It never hurts to expand your engineering toolbox, and FPGAs are only going to become more popular over the next few years.
