FPGA-based Protocol Acceleration in Data Networking and Storage Applications

Authored on: Aug 26, 2010 by Joe Rash

Technical Paper

More InfoLess Info
Data networking and storage equipment must deliver ever-higher throughput to meet the ever-increasing demand for data intensive, media rich applications. This white paper discusses the pros and cons of traditional CPU- and ASIC- based approaches to increasing throughput. It then describes CebaTech’s FPGA-based hardware acceleration solution, which suffers none of the cost and power disadvantages of the traditional approaches. The CebaFlex solution boosts performance by offloading software protocols from the CPU, and can be designed-in up-front or deployed as a post-ship, in-system enhancement.

Yet it is another typical rapid prototyping FPGA platform for networking applications. We can see the easy transition from the FPGA design flow to hardcopy ASIC design. What's missing is the description of the design tools for using this board, and the mapping from typical C-model to the FPGA design.

After reading the whitepaper I still wasn't sure why CebaTech board is better than general-purpose Xilinx or Altera dev kits, which are cheaper. It doesn't offer a lot of capacity - just a single Altera Stratix-IV chip.
