MoSys Embedded Search and Classification Acceleration using Xilinx FPGA and MoSys Programmable HyperSpeed Engine
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MoSys, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOSY), a provider of semiconductor solutions that enable fast, intelligent data access for cloud networking, security, test and video systems, today announced that it will be demonstrating its accelerator capability on the MoSys Programmable HyperSpeed Engine (PHE) at the 2019 Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF). MoSys will show Layer 2 Forwarding and packet classification firmware running on the 32 RISC cores embedded in the MoSys PHE device to perform classification of packet header data as an alternative to TCAM silicon. The search and classification solution is targeted at 2 x 100G Ethernet systems.
“The MoSys PHE running firmware used as an offload engine to a Xilinx VU9P UltraScale+ FPGA on a PCIe card is an ideal platform for designers developing products like SmartNICs and acceleration cards,” stated Michael Miller, MoSys’ CTO. “With the PHE, designers can achieve an order of magnitude speed up over standalone FPGA’s or 100x over software on a host CPU for tasks bottlenecked by random memory accesses of unstructured data.”
At XDF, MoSys will showcase its packet classification and Layer 2 Forwarding capability targeted for FPGA-based SmartNIC, router and switching applications. The interactive demonstrations will feature a TCAM compiler, classifier and Layer 2 Forwarding database running on MoSys’ firmware in a PHE working with a Xilinx VU9P UltraScale+ FPGA making use of PCIe plugged into a standard server box.
The demonstration will take place at the Xilinx Developer’s Forum, Oct. 1-2, at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California.
