1 The FPGA that were tested in the reference design are the Virtex UltraScale / Kintex UltraScale FPGA series from Xilinx, Inc.
2 A search entry is an information composed with a search key and a destination for packet forwarding.
3 When using tree bitmaps to search for (48-bit) MAC addresses.
4 According to calculations by Renesas.
5 The 143-bit search key length is supported only when the number of search entries is set to 1 million. The maximum search key length is 71 bits for 2 million entries and 35 bits for 4 million entries.
6 A search key is a unit of data with a specified bit width that is used for packet identification.
