NetEffect 10Gb iWARP Ethernet Channel Adapter Employs Multiple Xtensa Processors

Congratulations to NetEffect, Inc., for the recent introduction of its 10Gb iWARP Ethernet Channel Adapter (ECA). The NE010 is the first adapter on the market that fully implements the iWARP Ethernet standards, allowing data center managers to realize full 10 Gbps throughput using existing Ethernet hardware and software. NetEffect used multiple Tensilica Xtensa configurable processors in their impressive custom chip design for this adapter.

“We selected Tensilica’s Xtensa processors because of the ease with which we were able to optimize certain functions for our high-speed, demanding Ethernet channel adapters,” stated Rick Maule, NetEffect’s CEO. “Tensilica’s automated process let us optimize our embedded processors for our exact application in a fraction of the time that it would have taken us using other alternatives.”
