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?

A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
Pressure vessels are part of common equipment utilized in plants to store liquids and gases under high pressure. It is certain that pressurized fluids will develop stresses in the vessel, which when exceeds failure limits, will lead to hazardous incidents and fatalities.
