MILPITAS, Calif -- September 15, 2003
— Silicon Design Solutions, Inc., a provider of semiconductor memory intellectual property (IP), today announced the introduction of its eFlexCAM® Embedded CAM Memory Compilers.
The eFlexCAM® family of memory compilers provide high efficiency, cost-effective solutions for applications such as Network Search Engines, Cache for Network Processors, QoS services, Classifications, Ethernet, ATM switches and other diverse networking applications. In addition to a full set of standard features, SDS's eFlexCAM® provides a comprehensive set of user-selectable features that are chosen at compiling. A user can select only those features that are needed for a specific application to optimize performance, power and area.
SDS's eFlexCAM® designs are available in 0.18µm and 0.13µm geometries, customized to meet IDM and leading foundry processes. Our eFlexCAM® SDK (Design Tool Kit) allows customers to generate front-end packages via an easy to use GUI designed for flexible user-select options.
The eFlexCAM® products are designed to provide customers the flexibility to select only the features to address their specific design requirements. Our designs are based on Smart Power Management architecture that allows reduced power consumption for low power applications. For applicable implementations, the eFlexCAM® design will incorporate SDS’s patent-pending Longest Prefix Match architecture which requires no table management.
In addition to the large number of standard and user-selectable features, the eFlexCAM® family also consists of several special configurations. One special configuration incorporates a look-aside RAM buffer. Another is a dual-port search configuration that incorporates two hit-lines and two compare signals.Product Availability and Pricing
