LSI Tarari T1000 Content Processor Expands Support to Widest Range of Multicore Processors


Hardware-based intrusion prevention and anti-virus applications now available for PCI-X, PCI and PCI Express interfaces

MILPITAS, Calif. – LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that its industry-leading line of Tarari® T1000 Content Processors support an expanded range of embedded multicore processors. Now, in addition to Intel® and AMD® x86 processors, the T1000 can easily be coupled to other processors such as the RMI XLR Processor® and XLS Processor® families of multicore processors, enabling low-overhead, deep packet inspection at multi-gigabit data transfer rates.

In addition to previously announced support for PCI Express® and PCI interfaces, the T1000 becomes the first content processor to provide full cross-packet inspection in hardware for PCI-X systems operating at data rates up to 3 Gb/s.

“The RMI XLR Processor family of MIPS64 multicore, multithreaded processors has already secured a number of design wins when coupled with the T1000,” said Mark Litvack, director of business development, RMI Corporation. “Now that both PCIe and PCI-X bus support are available, our customers can take advantage of our full range of XLS and XLR processor families.”

The T1000 series allows networking OEMs to develop a single content processing solution for the entire performance spectrum, from entry-level to high-end systems. Using the same regular expression rules, OEMs can deploy any device in the LSI content processor product portfolio without significant additional effort, saving engineering expense and shortening time to market.

“The addition of PCI-X to the T1000 series opens up a new market of embedded applications,” said Randy Smerik, senior vice president, Network Components Division, LSI. “Now, more OEMs can deploy a wider range of multicore processors by designing systems that provide more intelligence, better control and tighter security than ever before.”

In addition to providing real-time performance, Tarari solutions offload the system CPU. Designers have the option to reduce CPU clock frequency or to decrease system cost and cut power consumption by using fewer CPU cores.

The LSI Tarari content processor family is a comprehensive set of solutions providing security, quality of service, content-based billing and bandwidth management functions for high-speed networks. Tarari solutions support common industry interfaces and a common application programming interface, resulting in shorter design cycles and faster time to market.
