Renesas Electronics Streamlines Memory Component Count in Data Center and Enables 60-Percent Reduction in Memory Power Consumption

Renesas provides NSEs ( for the complex communication processing at the 200-Gb class used by external communication interfaces of data centers and backbone communication networks. For communication processing at 100 Gb and below, in applications within data centers having large numbers of ports, Renesas provides a packet header search reference design composed of LLDRAM-III and FPGA. With this new FPGA-based search solution that enables flexible communication and support for rapidly-advancing network technology, Renesas continues its commitment to the communications market with the development of new solutions.

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.
