Network Processor Families Overview
Mellanox network processors enable system vendors to deliver solutions that are cost effective as well as power and board-space efficient, that can easily adapt to changing market requirements. Mellanox network processors are available as ICs or installed in platforms/appliances. Software development kits and sample applications are available.
NP Family (NP-5, NP-4, NPA)
Highly-flexible network processors with integrated traffic management targeting Carrier Ethernet Switches and Routers (CESR) and other platforms that require high performance, flexible packet processing and fine-grained traffic management. Mellanox NP products scale with performance from a few to hundreds of Gigabits per second with integrated ports of 1, 10, 40 and 100 Gigabit Ethernet.
Includes the NP-5, NP-4, and NPA families of network processors.
Software Development Environment for NP Network Processors
Mellanox offers a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) consisting of microcode development tools, software tools, sample code, and host Application Programming Interface (API) library to facilitate software development for the NP family of network processors (e.g. NP-5, NPA).More Info »
