LSI Tarari T2000 10G Content Processor Breaks One Watt Per Gigabit Per Second Barrier

Sets new 10 Gb/s standard for performance and power consumption

MILPITAS, Calif., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced the LSI(TM) Tarari(R) T2000 series of silicon- based content processing solutions for high-speed networking applications. The T2000 offers 10 gigabit per second (Gb/s) performance on a single chip, breaking the one watt per Gb/s barrier for the first time.

"Tarari T2000 content processors can significantly offload any X86-, MIPS- or PowerPC-based processor in a network or server environment," said Randy Smerik, senior vice president, Network Components Group, LSI. "The pay-off is much faster content processing at a fraction of the cost and power consumption, which is a critical requirement for equipment providers."

Operating at wire speeds, Tarari T2000 content processors offload critical network applications such as anti-virus and anti-spam detection, intrusion prevention, content-based billing and filtering, bandwidth management and QoS. For high-bandwidth applications, two T2000 chips can be coupled to provide up to 16 Gb/s of throughput in a very small form factor. T2000 software can detect and load balance up to four 16 Gb/s PCI Express(R) boards, providing up to 64 Gb/s of performance for the most demanding network environments.

Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group, said, "LSI is the market leader in content processing technology because they understand the problem better. Now, they also have the broadest and fastest product line for PCI Express."

T2000-based systems use low-cost DDR RAM, available at a fraction of the cost of expensive SRAM required by other solutions. The family is based upon common industry interfaces and a common application programming interface, resulting in shorter design cycles, faster times to market and longer product life.
