Axonerve is a next generation variant of the content-addressable memory (CAM) solution. Its unique algorithmic matching engine realizes high-speed & low-latency content matching at ultra-low power consumption.
Axonerve can perform continuous search operation with extremely low latency and achieve 150MSPS to track 100Gbps network packets. It can support exact and wildcard matching for N-tuple header fields. It also provides a priority function that determines which one should be finally selected out of multiple matches. You don’t need to sort or update a whole entry table any more to change the matching order.
Axonerve is a fully-synthesizable IP core. It adopts common 6T-SRAM technology and requires no special memory structure design. It leads to power and area saving, and enables you to implement single or multiple instances of Axonerve IP cores in FPGA as well as ASIC.
